SME companies in the ERP domain are facing several challenges such as the functional growth of systems. Solving these problems is sometimes difficult as no off-the-shelf solutions exist. This also means that selected prob-lems provide an excellent opportunity for applied research. In this paper, we de-scribe the S³C research project which was conducted by an SME company in the ERP domain. We present the objectives and the outcomes of the project but also focus on a discussion on how the project was conducted. Particularly, the contribution of this paper is a discussion of lessons learned from conducting re-search in SME companies. We highlight success factors and risks which pro-vide a guideline for SME companies in conducting research.
