ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning and is the process employed by manufacturing and logistics companies to manage the key parts of their business. ERP software supports the efforts of resource planning by integrating all the processes needed to run a lean business, such as; finance, material requirements planning, inventory management, advanced warehouse management, sales, marketing, HR and payroll.
An ERP system brings all your systems together, without which, departments often run their own individual systems. Whilst this may cater for the day-to-day departmental tasks and processes, in practice, it often leads to departments working in silos. This becomes very inefficient as organisations have to employ additional manual resources to extract and import data from one system to another in order to produce meaningful company-wide reports in which to make better business decisions.
The implementation of an ERP system can also help you to identify inefficiencies within your business by rethinking current practices and processes. Be reassured with Access’ dedicated team, which will support you and your business through the process.
