What is an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and why is it important to your Business?

April 15, 2021

In the fast-evolving pace of the modern world run by technology, the ability to move knowledge, money, and even human talent around the world - at rates that would have been unthinkable just a few decades ago- created an atmosphere that is conducive to the development of innovative ideas. However, the demands of such wide ambitions, need a similar collection of complex structures to sustain and organize this mobility. Large business companies have become highly dependent on programs to collect and organize critical business data that assists them in running lean, productive operations even as they develop.

What is Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)?

An ERP is a software program that automates business processes and offers insights and internal controls, based on data collected from departments such as accounting, production, supply chain, sales, marketing, human resources (HR) etc.

Through ERP, leaders are able to gain cross-departmental visibility once information is compiled in the central database, allowing them to evaluate different situations, discover process changes, and produce significant productivity gains. As a result, people would spend less time searching for needed data, resulting in cost savings and increased productivity.

Why is ERP Important in your Business?

The first ERP program can be traced back to the 1960s, when it was used in large manufacturing companies to monitor inventory and quality control. Since then, it has expanded to include a wide range of sectors and job functions, allowing for unprecedented convergence of disparate agencies. This functionality has become synonymous with ERP software as we know it today.

ERP allows businesses to recognize areas of the market where there is potential for change or expansion. The greater the number of workers who have access, the more likely it is that issues will be identified, whether it's a surge in demand for a specific commodity, late shipments from a supplier, or an imminent cash flow shortage. Employees should then take steps to minimize the problem as soon as possible.

ERP systems automate and streamline operations, resulting in a more lean, accurate, and effective service. It gives you full insight into the company's core processes which is why these systems have become a must-have for companies who want to make the best use of their resources. These systems assist leaders in reallocating human and financial resources or developing more effective processes that save money without compromising quality or efficiency.

Advancing your Company’s ERP System

Purchasing and integrating an ERP framework used to be daunting. However, today's solutions enable businesses to take things one step at a time, adding what they need when they need it. This software has never been more accessible to more organizations, and leaders should take advantage of it. For any organization that wants to be visible, an ERP has become a must-have.

When purchasing an ERP system, the required features, preferred deployment model, and company size will all influence your decision. Look for existing vendors who have a track record of working with companies in your industry. Ask for references from previous customers and look into their success and look at the software company's roadmap for new technologies.
