ERP software integrates core business functions into one complete system to streamline processes and information for improving business performance.
What is ERP?
ERP is an acronym for Enterprise Resource Planning, but the term is not self explanatory. It refers to software systems used to manage day-to-day business activities in one database. ERP systems eliminate data entry duplication and provides one source of information that contains accurate and real-time data.
ERP and Business Intelligence
A key feature of ERP systems is the centralised collation of data into one integrated database. This empowers staff to make better decisions more quickly than they could using data in unconnected standalone databases and/or spreadsheets that are prone to error.
Because ERP systems provide one consistent source of accurate real time information, management can get a comprehensive view of business operations at any time, while other staff can get the information they need to do their jobs more effectively.
Good visibility of information is becoming more important than ever for making timely decisions, responding to changing conditions and maintaining competitive advantage. To be able to improve business processes, measure progress and make well-informed decisions, businesses need the ability to easily access and analyse the right information quickly.
ERP systems include Business Intelligence tools for translating data into decision making information. These do not only consist of easy-to-use reporting and analysis, but also dashboards for Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) to monitor business performance on key metrics.
An integrated ERP system is a tool that will provide you with the visibility and information to improve your business performance, whether small or large.
ERP and Mobility
With the explosion in mobility technology, software developers are now incorporating mobility systems into their ERP systems.
This enables more efficient and real-time data collection for the ERP system as well as mobile access from anywhere to the information in the ERP system.
