How effective is your ERP solution?
If you’re considering upgrading or replacing your legacy business systems, a high calibre effective ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software solution will be high on your list of wants, if not at the top.
In essence, an ERP system acts as a platform that integrates the functions of every department in an organisation and unifies all the data and processes its people enter, share, exploit, and rely on. Harmonising business intelligence and enhancing collaborative activities ensures everyone works smarter, productivity and efficiency are improved, operational costs are significantly reduced, and the workflow cycle becomes more agile across the organisation.
Those are the top-level benefits of an ERP system, but the wider benefits of deploying such technology, with the support of a trusted implementation consulting partner, will inevitably permeate the entire business proposition.
These are just a few of the key business benefits a far-reaching ERP platform will deliver:
From accounting, sales and purchasing, HR and customer services to project management, warehousing, logistics and the supply chain, an all-embracing, end-to-end ERP solution will unify and manage it all, safely and securely.
Elimination of data silos
Data garnered from every transaction and customer interaction is stored in a single location ensuring information is instantly meaningful, consistent, and accurate. The result: actionable insights, real-time analytics and business intelligence in one place that gives a complete 360° view of your business.
Enhanced sales and customer service
You’ll deliver value to your customers at every touchpoint and sell smarter by keeping track of individual interactions, prioritising sales leads and opportunities to upsell, cross-sell and renew. Workload and service tasks will be automated ensuring you give an exceptional service that’ll work wonders for your relationships.
Increased efficiency and productivity
Streamlined business processes save time by eliminating duplication of tasks and data entry. Automated workflows will help to ensure every department is meeting and, in many cases, exceeding its productivity goals.
Accurate reporting and forecasting
An effective ERP delivers relevant, real time data and actionable insights. Along with tools to create accurate forecasts, improved reporting capabilities make it easy to manage complex data requests without relying solely on your IT department.
Your first step towards an effective ERP implementation
ERP deployment decision made, the first step is to talk to an implementation consultant who has experience with world-class ERP implementation methodology and understands you, your industry, and your business model. If a scalable, end-to-end business programme with ultra-unifying capabilities is what’s called for, your implementation partner is likely to recommend industry-leading ERP software solutions like Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.
Both platforms empower users with full control over financial and business data, a suite of collaborative sales and management features and are sufficiently flexible to adapt alongside changing business needs and evolve with organisations as they grow. It’s also reassuring to know that your implementation of Dynamics 365 Business Central will be deployed by a Microsoft Gold Partner who’ll give you the confidence you’re working with an experienced, competent supplier who’ll be with you from the first adoption and for the lifetime of your product.
