ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) integrates multiple functions of a business into one system to ensure consistency and uniformity across the organisation; whilst ensuring all departments can access and use the system, which enables real-time data to be created and examined.
The shared database is multifunctional and can incorporate HR, accounts, inventory, order management, customer databases and much more. Each department has a different requirement from the system, yet it can meet the specific needs across a variety of business areas.
Vital information from other sectors of the business can be accessed which enables a more informed decision-making process. This allows concerns to be monitored and action plans to be implemented, with ease, across a variety of departments.
