Let's Play "ERP Operation" & Dissect the Perfect ERP Solution
Many people call a company’s ERP system its “backbone”. It certainly is the backbone, but it’s also the heart, soul and lifeblood of a company.
Here are some of the top reasons why...
1. One Centralized Location for All Your Information
Like your brain, your ERP system is the memory and consciousness of your company. It stores history of every customer and supplier interaction, as well as what happened on the shop floor. It knows where all your inventory is, and it knows when orders are due to ship. Whether you decide to run your ERP on premise or in the cloud, you need a central location for knowledge.
2. Integrated Reporting and Analytics
Integrated reporting and KPIs are like your company’s eyes. They show you which processes are working and which are out of kilter. Tracking performance is the first step in improving performance.
3. Data Import
We take nourishment from food, and your ERP system runs on data. Look for one that makes it easy to import data from other sources so you can nourish your entire business.
4. Customer Relationship Management
CRM is the ear of your organization, helping you to understand what your customers need and want. Maybe that’s why 69 percent of leading manufacturers use both CRM and ERP.
5. Materials Requirements Planning
MRP is the heart of every ERP system, helping to keep materials flowing smoothly so your operation runs efficiently.
