    Hi Andreas,

    The isn't such a comparison out there as far as I know.

    What could help is to ask the nature of your client's business, since the PMA option is very specific for larger organizations that work in a factory-like style, and that could be your case. By going PMA only you will lose some of the easiness that project for the web gives you for a full-blown ERP, but that might be exactly what you need and want. Best is take both for a spin or demo specific functionalites to compare or ask what feutures are most important for them (pain points that they want to address with the new solution).

    'Most' professional service companies would not be a good fit for the ERP-only option in the link below. In most situations, customers already have an ERP in place and they need a project engine to help capture costs and manage resources for those projects and that's where Lite/Non-stocked would fit best. I might blog about this later in more detail, but now this is what I can share with you today:
