ERP role in a business
In today’s competitive era, for all the companies whether it may be MNCs or small sector businesses, it is very essential to remove their operating cost and earning more revenue. It is also necessary for them to make strategic decisions for optimum use of resources in this competitive scenario. ERP software pays a beautiful role in it.
A company can have different applications to manage the different operations like -
- accounting and finance
- HR and administration
- production and manufacturing
- distribution, selling and marketing
- IT and consulting
The use of these separate applications to perform the multiple tasks creates difficulties. The biggest difficulty occurs when the data from multiple systems is extracted and the final audit report is mandatory to be made. It takes much manual effort, time and efforts.
ERP solutions become so effective to remove complexity because it creates the more integrated platform to connect these applications and the data extraction, analysis and reporting becomes less obsolete and complex. One more benefit is also there that the complete or approximate process becomes automated and it completes the processes more efficiently.
Today many people think especially related to small and medium sector enterprises that ERP software are very costly in price. Today to solve their problem there are many ERP vendors who provide their modules as per according to the requirements of people so that it becomes less costly.
Today there are many open source software development kits are available so because they provide the facility to add or remove the modules as per according to the requirements of customers.
One more vibrant issue is also there especially in the case of manufacturing and production companies that they have subsidiary branches in many of the countries and locations in a single country. So it becomes very difficult to communicate with each other and get the data. Sometimes it becomes very difficult for the employees to work who travel from one country to another or one place to another for work.
ERP software has solved this problem easily because from one single user friendly dashboard they can get all the data from one or many locations and can perform all the operations anywhere, anytime. Thus ERP software has also helped companies t manage multiple location business and provide more detailed report.
