What is ERP?

Enterprise Resource Planning or also known as ERP is a software responsible for managing backend processes of a business. These processes include but are not limited to finance, accounting, procurement, inventory and scheduling. Basically, ERP is a centralised program that helps businesses run all the essential functions needed to make your business a success. ERP can also be aligned in order to fit your specific industry or business venture.

What does an ERP do?

The great thing about having an ERP system is that it gives you the whole picture of your business operation. It answers all the what, when, who, why and how of the enterprise by keeping and securing data in one place. By using an ERP, you don’t need to have separate spreadsheets or documents relating to your operations, because you’ll only need one program to keep track of everything. It functions in a way similar to the brain, like one central organ that controls the processes around it.

How can an ERP benefit my business?

Efficiency and good business decisions are the main benefits of having an ERP software. Having a single central system that controls, tracks and processes the operations will allow you to be more efficient not only when it comes to manpower but also to data sharing. An ERP helps make sure that your organisational machine is synchronised.

Do I need an ERP?
