Enterprise Resource Planning solutions (ERPs) are capable of running your entire operation, not just your your accounts and a bit of stock. The possibilities, in many cases, are endless but there are three things we see people jump-for-joy at with every implementation.
ERPs are far more customisable than off-the-shelf accounting solutions. This means you’re able to automate most of those day-to-day, mundane processes that eat away at your time every day.
Many users, for example, will spend hours at the end of every month creating complex reports for either themselves or management. Not will an ERP automatically generate these reports for you but will email them to the applicable people in the business. So instead of working back late on the last few days of every month you’re getting home on time.
If you’re stretching your accounting system to its limits you may be experiencing performance issues or be restricted by its functionality. An ERP will allow unlimited users, entities, transactions, staff and stock items. This scalability means you’re able to effortlessly carry out your job with no interruptions or restrictions.
Having this level of access and power means one thing; you’re giving your boss what they want, when they want it which can only be a good thing, right?
As a business grows, its processes become more complex. An ERP will change according to your processes instead of its users having to adapt to cater for inflexibility.
For example, an ERP will allow a user to completely customise their screen layouts (amongst many other cool things).
In the example of a data entry screen, the user can change the screen to simply tab and enter through fields without having to use their mouse or check the screen. Invoice or Purchase Order entry times can be significantly reduced meaning deadlines are easier to hit and stress levels reduced.
ERP solutions are super-flexible and scalable. They’re designed to meet the needs of businesses in every industry and with this level of customisation it’s easy to see why we see so many happy users!
