Enterprise resource planning, also known as ERP, is a system that helps automate and manage business processes across finance, manufacturing, retail, supply chain, human resources, and operations. Helping leaders gain insight, optimize operations, and improve decision-making, ERP systems break down data silos, integrating information between different departments. Most companies have a finance and operational system in place, but most other software out there can’t go beyond everyday business processes or help with future business growth. As companies expand and their needs change, their systems should keep up with them.
If you’re reading this and struggling with your legacy system, you probably already know that implementation is in your future, but here are the signs that you definitely need new ERP starting today:

Here are some of the basic components of ERP system:
Not only should your system help you meet regulatory compliance, but it should also deliver accurate data and analytics to help you keep an eye on your budget, including the management of multiple currencies, cash flow management, and bank transactions.
Manufacturing This function should give manufacturers the ability to access real-time data to optimize production planning, as well as project and cost management. ERP manufacturing should also offer the ability to manage resources and fulfill customer needs.
Supply chain As the days of manually entering information and doing a physical inventory of goods become relics of the past, this function should improve warehouse and inventory management and let businesses gain greater insights into their products and integrated logistics.
Human resources Modern solutions offer ways to manage company data and streamline employee management tasks like payroll, hiring, and other duties. You’ll be in a better position to help retain, recruit, and empower employees while also tracking employee performance and identifying HR problems before they happen.
While there’s no all-up solution software for every business process, ERP technology is getting better and better at bringing processes together. Once your processes, systems, and data are connected, you’ll get the intelligence, acceleration, and adaptability you need to start optimizing your operations.
