Why is ERP required for any Business?
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are a must to have on the checklist for any small to medium scale business. An ERP system not only provides a systematic structuring of the day to day workflow but also eliminates the chances of error and omissions in the process. Most of the times in everyday chaotic environment of any business, team members tend to ignore SOPs laid down, thus leaving a trace and track problem at a later stage. An ERP system in such a scenario act as a guided platform enabling step wise process. Some of the key benefits of an ERP system are as follows:
Since the data right from Sales orders to purchases till despatch is all entered by various users but on the same platform making it much convenient and handy to manage data at all points. Retrieval of data and auto reports act as an important tool for the management to take quick decisions.
Most of the small businesses use multiple free independent tools for various process like free accounting software, excel tools, online feedback forms etc. which makes it difficult to analyse the business for decision making and despite all staggered effort lacks holistic approach. An ERP system helps a business integrate multi departmental functionalities to draw meaningful dashboards.
