What is ERP?
ERP = Enterprise Resource Planning.
ERP is the common acronym used in business for Enterprise Resource Planning.
What is Enterprise Resource Planning? Enterprise Resource Planning (or ERP) is a system that businesses use to integrate the processes that are necessary for a business to run effectively. Accounting, Inventory Control, Sales, Warehouse, Customer Relations (CRM), C-Level Management and every other department within a company are all linked together within an effective ERP System. This allows the entire organization to work together harmoniously, utilizing the same information.
An effective ERP System allows all departments to work from the same database. This insures Sales knows what is available in the Warehouse. The Warehouse knows what Inventory is on the way. Accounting knows what has been sold, to who and when. Management has complete oversight of every department.
ERP software integrates all functions across all departments within a company into one system, streamlining processes and creating efficiencies throughout the entire company.
By utilizing a centralized system with a single database, all departments are sharing the same information within the ERP System. Sales, Accounting, Inventory Management and every other department are looking at the same data at all times. In most cases, this is in real time. This is key to maintaining tight controls within the company on inventory, costs and the bottom line. ERP software eliminates the archaic practice of having each department keep its information stored in spreadsheets or tables that are manually keyed and may or may not be merged with the other departments’ information on a regular basis.
ERP software helps to reduce the errors and delays caused by relying on manual entry and/or personnel’s time constraints to manually key data correctly. In an ERP system, customer information, orders, quotes, invoices, financial status and all other relevant items update with a few clicks as events happen. This information is available across the entire organization for immediate insights and informed decision-making.
Why does a business need ERP?
ERP Solutions help companies with multiple departments or with personnel performing different functions work harmoniously together, sharing the same information and working with real time company data.
- See a real-time, company-wide view of data - enabling companies to address concerns proactively and drive improvements
- Improve financial regulatory compliance and reduce risk with strict standards and processes
- Automate core business operations such as lead-to-cash, order-to-fulfillment, and procurement-to-payment processes
- Enhance customer service with one source for billing and relationship tracking.
The value of ERP is indisputable. With an ERP solution, employees have access to accurate information enabling them to make better decisions faster.
