PSA software is often referred to as “ERP for service organizations.”
So, is there a difference between PSA software and ERP software?
First, I’ll give you the short answer: not really. When you compare the purposes and main functionality of professional services automation software and enterprise resource planning software, they are basically the same.
However, there are some subtle differences and reasons why one term might be used over the other. Having a good understanding of what both PSA software and ERP software have to offer is a good starting point – especially if you are thinking about investing in a system to help manage your business.
