Why growing businesses need to know about ERP software

What’s ERP?

If you run a business, you’ll know that there’s more to manage than just accounting – there’s inventory, your people, customers, orders and so on. ERP (i.e. Enterprise Resource Planning) is software that brings together all this information and processes together into one central system.

This means no matter what part of your business your people are working in, everyone is accessing the same information to make their decisions and do their work. With a single source of truth, decisions are easier, and processes are simpler.

So if you’re failing to produce and deliver your goods on time or are unable to inform your customers about the details of their order, ERP helps solve this. As a business planning tool, ERP software reduces disjointed information, repetitive manual processes and manual error. It ultimately lets you better manage your supply chain and business efficiency.

Access anywhere: bringing it all together in the cloud

Usually, ERP software is housed on a company’s own server infrastructure (known as an ‘on premise’ setup). Cloud ERP simply means the software is housed in a cloud environment, so just like the apps on your phone, you can access it anytime, anywhere, with just an internet connection. Being cloud based also means you don’t have to pay any fees relating to disaster recovery, infrastructure damage, IT support and software upgrades. Instead, everything is automatically backed up and secured online. Upgrades happen overnight and you can access real-time information, speeding up operations and reducing manual entry and errors.
