Why deploy an ERP for your business?
As a business grows, the number of processes that need to be managed begins to grow. If you are people-dependent that means your business works for just eight or nine hours a day. It also means that your business does not work on holidays and weekends. That’s inconceivable in this digital age.
With an ERP, all your business functions are automated, and your business can work quickly, cost-effectively, and transparently. Besides, an ERP enables data security, and an opportunity to identify new avenues for revenue generation.
Here are some reasons why your business should adopt an ERP and say goodbye to point solutions that are hard to manage.
- Maximum automation – A single, comprehensive ERP with its various modules can ensure automation across the organization. Data flows from one department to the next, automatically. For instance, an order for 5000 pieces of a 500 ml bottle will automatically check with inventory and see if this quantity is in store, it will then go to the finance module for payment, and manufacturing will be alerted with the specs of the product if it needs to be manufactured. Warehousing and logistics will be alerted too. All, with no human intervention. An ERP has the potential to work for your organization, 24/7.
- Improved collaboration across departments of the organization – With automation, each department has its work cut out for them. The information shared across the organization is accurate, and the department can work fast, and with minimal supervision. This reduces the cost of production.
- Improved productivity – as there are no manual processes. The ERP has just one version of data, and planning and execution can happen seamlessly.
- Better insights and business intelligence – at the department and corporate levels. Insights allow for accurate forecasting and planning. Data analysis can be generated along several parameters such as location, product, region, department, profitability, date, and more.
- Improved regulatory compliance – be they related to taxation or production. Automation provides an option to monitor, review, and share data with regulatory authorities.
