The promotions below apply sales before the end of June 2009.   Based on the economy, my educated guess is this is probably the best time to buy an ERP system if you think you are going to do so in the next few years.

Remember, a solution is far more than just the price of the software.  Its the costs of implementation, the time of your staff spent on the project, and ultimately, the experience of the overall team to ensure you don’t just replace what you have, but actually gain true daily Return on Investment (ROI) from the project.  At Clients First, we will discourage you from buying a solution from us if we can’t show a tangible ROI relative to your business needs.
