Most of today's ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems will meet the process automation needs of most business models without extensive modification or the need for "add-on" functionality.

While it is true that NPOs may not have to deal with the complexities of manufacturing and inventory management, they share many of the same internal processes as commercial entities. For example, NPOs need to purchase and pay for goods and services and process payroll.[Click to continue...]
