Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
What is ERP?
Many people tend to switch off when they hear the term ‘ERP software’. It’s not surprising really…it sounds complicated, maybe even a little boring until you know what it is. And even knowing what those three letters stand for – Enterprise Resource Planning – does little really to explain what ERP software is, and what it can do for your business.
Given just how much of a difference the right ERP software can make in terms of helping you achieve your business goals, the letters E.R.P could just as easily stand for the many ways this software can help your business.
- Every Resource Productive
- Enhanced Real-time Performance
- Efficient Repeatable Processes
- Everlasting Rock-solid Partnerships
Put simply, good ERP software brings together a range of different processes and disciplines into one solution to provide you with more visibility across the business, help run your organisation more efficiently, and allow your employees to work more collaboratively with each other, your customers and supply chain.
Why do companies adopt ERP software?
Covered within the ERP umbrella are a number of important business processes such as inventory management, personnel management, material usage, accounting, manufacturing, customer relationship management, and many more. The idea of ERP software is to pull these diverse and often confusing threads together into one, easily manageable whole.
The immediate benefit of such a solution is that rather than becoming overwhelmed and lost in a sea of complex and seemingly contradictory processes across multiple systems and data sources, your efforts will be harmonised, which will make your business far more efficient and effective. Enhanced agility, better flexibility in the market, reduced costs, and more reliable and efficient processes are all common rewards of choosing the right ERP software solution.
Choosing your ERP Solution
So, the answer is simply to ‘adopt’ new ERP software, right? Well, not exactly. The fact that there are many different solutions out there on the market should suggest that there are many different types of solutions also. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses, and each may be more suited to a particular industry or company depending on their particular needs, model and strategies.
The right ERP solution for you will truly support all of your organisation’s unique needs, while adopting industry best practices where appropriate.
