As a result of the ongoing economic crisis and the international market competition, Greek SMEs, particularly the ones focusing in manufacture and production, need to stay profitable by increasing efficiency, while reducing operational costs. Information collected, stored and processed by ERP systems help SMEs to reduce uncertainty, and improve operations and managerial decision-making. Manufacture SMEs could benefit from the implementation of an ERP system, as there are many aspects in the business to consider. However, most decisions are based on financial information. The current study explores the accounting benefits of implementing ERPs on manufacture SMEs, from an accounting standpoint. Findings demonstrate the difference in importance of the various accounting benefits within the different manufacturing categories.
