ERP Systems in SMEs: A Literature Review
In this paper, the authors explains the research on Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems in Small and Medium-size Enterprises (SMEs). Due to the close-to-saturation of ERP adoptions in Large Enterprises (LEs), ERP vendors now focus more on SMEs. Moreover, because of globalization, partnerships, value networks, and the huge information flow across and within SMEs nowadays, more and more SMEs are adopting ERP systems. Risks of adoption rely on the fact that SMEs have limited resources and specific characteristics that make their case different from LEs. This paper is to shed the light on the areas that lack sufficient research within the ERP in SMEs domain, suggest future research avenues.
