Our company is using an ERP system for our product inventory management and customers orders. The newest version uses MS SQL 2012. if we are not developing software and the only users accessing the MS SQL 2012 database is the 3rd party application (ERP system) can we use the Developers Edition of SQL 2012?

No, the Developer Edition is for developers only. If it contains production data, you are not licensed and it doesn't matter that only the ERP system accesses the database, the users of your ERP system count as users of SQL server.
