and what it can do
for your company

What is an ERP system?

ERP (acronym for Enterprise Resource Planning) is a system that integrates all the essential functions for the management of a company (Accounting, Inventory and Order Management, Human Resources, Customer Relationship Management, Production, Supply Chain, Services , Procurement) in a complete system, to simplify the processes and information of the entire organization. This at least is what any ERP system does. In addition to what has been said, the latest generation ERPs use the latest technologies - such as machine learning and artificial intelligence - to increase the performance and efficiency of resources in every business area, decreasing down-times.
The central feature of all ERP systems is a shared database that supports multiple functions used by different business units. In practice, this means that employees from different areas, such as accounting and sales, can rely on the same information for their specific needs.

The unmistakable signs that indicate that you need an ERP system

Most companies start out using a variety of simple, stand-alone tools to manage different, very simple management processes or even Excel spreadsheets. If you recognize yourself in one or more of the scenarios listed below, it is a sign that it is time to adopt a more advanced system for managing your business.

You are spending more time on daily activities 
If the management of the most important activities takes longer, such as the closure of the accounting books, it is possible that the cause is due to too many different applications that are unable to communicate with each other. An ERP software integrates solutions and data into a single system with a common interface, making it easier for business units to communicate and carry out their work effectively.

You can't easily decipher the key data of your business
If it becomes difficult to obtain important information, such as inventory or the number of returns, the problem may be related to separate and non-integrated software. Lack of access to metrics and KPIs could block your business from developing. ERP software is designed to meet these challenges.

Business processes that you can't keep under control
Are some areas of your business becoming an enigma? Have managing the inventory, meeting customer requests or keeping costs under control become unsurpassed challenges? In this case, an ERP software could support you in the restructuring of business processes to adapt to the growth or change of priorities.

Duplicate data
Are your resources forced to manually enter the same data in multiple applications? If so, they are likely to spend too much time entering duplicate data. When information cannot flow between systems, reports become more difficult, errors increase and decision making is compromised.

You are missing out on business growth opportunities
Are you spending so much time running your business that you can't pursue interesting new opportunities? The new ERP systems include advanced and intelligent features, such as machine learning and predictive analysis, which facilitate the identification of new profitable initiatives.
