Your business model is unique in its own ways; keep in mind that most off the shelf products are designed for a constant set of processes and procedures, which of course can be customized to your business requirements. Make a decision right when you begin planning to get an ERP solution whether a customized off-the-shelf product or a fully customized ERP solution will be good for your business.

Optimize Inventory Management and Streamline Supply Chain Processes, Managing demand planning with spreadsheets often results in inaccurate and untimely forecasts. This is not exactly what you want but force you to do per ERP lacking suitable process and your unique situations.
