[From Small Business Computing]

Enterprise resource planning, ERP for short, is an industry term that represents a broad set of integrated business activities supported by different applications. ERP software is supposed to make your business fluid - it's supposed to help you run your business more smoothly and make more money faster. Only true ERP solutions are usually too high-priced for a small business to consider. And it's not just the licensing fees that stop small many small businesses in their tracks - deploying an ERP system can involve considerable business process analysis, employee retraining, new work procedures and even a network upgrade.

That's where Icode's Everest Standard Edition 6.0 has found a niche. Formerly known as Accware, Icode has rebranded its relational database software to make it one of the first integrated mini-ERP solutions designed specifically for smaller businesses. The newest release includes nearly 20 enhancements designed to save time for small businesses, support multiple online stores, increase protection against credit card fraud, and to automatically calculate complex pricing strategies.
