So, How Much Does an ERP System Cost?
In addition to the cost of the software itself, the final ERP cost to actually implement the software is also affected by factors including:
- The complexity of your particular implementation
- The complexity of migrating data from your old system into the new system
- The number of external interfaces you need to support
- Transaction volume
- The complexity of customizations
- Training users on the new system
These ERP cost factors can vary widely, but, for most ERP products, expect to pay about 1.5 to 2.5 times the base cost of the software for implementation services.
To find out for yourself the real cost of an ERP system, and to get an estimate of the Return on Investment (ROI) and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of a new system, use Acumatica’s ERP cost calculator. See the blog ERP ROI Calculator: How to Get a True Return on Investment (ROI) Calculation for more.
How does the cloud affect ERP cost?
Deploying ERP software in the cloud offers companies distinct advantages, most notably: Convenience and cost savings, because there is no upfront cost to purchase the hardware or staff to maintain it. The hosting providers usually handle:
- Hardware configuration and maintenance
- Software installation and maintenance
- Data backups
- Multiple levels of security
- And more
Most cloud implementations are only available with subscription pricing.

How is Acumatica different in terms of ERP cost?
Unlike traditional ERP vendors, the Acumatica price is NOT based on the number of users.
We believe that companies that charge per user actually do a disservice to their clients because there is a temptation to limit access to the ERP system to certain staff in an effort to save money.
