User Interface

Any ERP let it be anyone should be considered to have a good user interface since only then the productivity and effectiveness of the companies employees would be increased in turn increasing the company profit. In certain aspects of a business organization for employees spending countless hours of working on the platform the interface ability should be considered by the organizations while installing an ERP. For instance, a courier service channel where the employees work outdoors. So considering them the system should be portable and easy to access due to their work conditions.

Below are the screenshots of various ERPs from which the user can obtain basic information of the interface ability. It can be understood that a single screenshot would never provide you with a clear outline of the ERP but a descriptive comparison would.
