The evolution of the IT system in the 20th and 21st centuries made every company and business rely on computers and software in conducting day to day business, but this revolution took very discrete routes in different application domains. For example accounting software and systems were developed separately from manufacturing or human resources management software, warehouse and logistics management systems have limited links to other software solutions in the company, and it became common to see a company relying on 10 different software packages to manage their resources and automate their complete business processes.

But over the years the different solutions started to come closer to each other, like Human Resources and accounting or warehouse management and manufacturing planning, creating what is known as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.

ERP systems integrate the management of internal and external information across the entire organization, including finance/accounting, manufacturing, sales and services, human resources, and customer relationship management processes within the organisation.

ERP provides executive management with live real-time information at their fingertips to make effective and informed business decisions: >em>a good ERP implementation enables management to take control of every aspect of their business and identify pain points and bottle necks very early in order to focus their resources and utilise them with maximum efficiency.

Benefits of move to ERP

Implementing a true and efficient ERP system in any organisation has an endless number of benefits; we list some of the most important ones hereby:

ERP solutions standardize the use of one application to run the entire business. This does not only increase efficiencies, but also decreases the overall total cost of ownership (TCO), thereby reducing operational costs and improving the company’s profitability.

The ERP system enforces tighter controls for financial compliance and declarations (e.g. Sarbanes-Oxley and Basel II) as well as other forms of compliance reporting.

The ERP system provides the best platform to manage processes and documentations required for ISO certification like ISO9001 and ISO14000 and can take the company to the next levels of TQM certification.

The ERP system uses single data source for product and services information, information related to suppliers, vendors, customer orders and the products themselves are linked with each other to drive rapid product development and launch cycles which increases a company’s overall market share.
