Comparison of ERP , NetSuite, Interprise Suite & Evolution for Small and Medium Business

Comparison Products

Interprise Suite  ERP Software  NetSuite   TradePoint 360
 2011 Update New Management with new version 6.0 it's the ERP we recommend for small and medium business.

Fully intergated e-Commerce (.Net) and SEO friendly, we have SEO package and Channel marketing packages for Interprise.

ERP Customers can migrate to Interprise Suite with our "ERP to Interprise Migration".


New Management, no improvements you can only upgrade to their support plans and we ask customers to avoid this software.

For existing ERP customers we have a migration package to Interprise Suite

Very attractive prices for first year, check the total cost of ownership beyond 2-3 yrs and compare with other packages.

If you are established firm with thousands of products and want to scale your business then NetSuite or hosted solution is not the way to go, you need on-premises or something which you own the data and not them. Ask what data can be exported/imported from their system?

We don't recommend not many customers nor any resellers to suppport this package.

We like the new developments and improvements in terms of technology used but it's not people-friendly yet.
