This blog article was written by Jim Gonzalez of EDI Support LLC, an EDI Alliance partner.  I am constantly looking for ways to keep up with everything that is going on with the various ERP software packages out there. Although I specialize in Sage products, I like to share information with clients and peers on all things ERP that I happen to come across. One of the easiest ways to do this is through Twitter feeds. They are quick blurbs that I can choose to read or ignore, and most contain links to more detailed articles. As a society there is such a demand to stay informed in real-time and Twitter is by far the best tool for that.  You will hear from consultants, VARs and actual users that work with these ERP solutions on a daily basis.  Here are the top 5 Twitter feeds (not in any particular order) that I follow to stay abreast of ERP news and information...enjoy!

My audience many times has been both the small to mid-sized companies that did not have their pulse on those fancy tech tools and the big corporations that dictated their EDI compliancy. Our value brings these vendors into the fold with the best-of-the-breed EDI tools along with the fortitude to recommend and the experience to execute. The solutions can include hosting, an EDI translator, integration development tools, and shipping & barcoding packages.
