A guide to ERP systems – your questions answered

What is an ERP system?
What is ERP and how does it work?

An ERP program is a comprehensive software solution designed to centralise and streamline all aspects of a business’s operations. By integrating various functions, such as sales, procurement, accounting, inventory management, customer relationship management (CRM), and more, this system enables seamless communication between different departments. This interconnected approach allows businesses to operate more efficiently, enhance collaboration, and make data-driven decisions that drive growth.

Implementing an Enterprise Resource Planning system offers numerous benefits for your organisation, including:

Increased efficiency: By consolidating multiple processes and systems into a single platform, an ERP system eliminates the need for manual data entry, reduces the risk of errors, and boosts overall productivity.

Enhanced collaboration: With a unified system in place, different departments can access real-time data, allowing them to collaborate effectively, share insights, and make informed decisions that benefit the entire organisation.

Real-time visibility: An ERP system provides a holistic view of your business operations, granting you real-time access to critical information and allowing you to identify areas of success, potential improvements, and overall performance trends.

Scalability: As your business grows and evolves, an ERP system can be adapted to accommodate new functions, requirements, and market changes, ensuring your operations continue to run smoothly and efficiently.

Data-driven decision-making: ERP systems offer access to valuable data and business intelligence tools, empowering you to make informed decisions that drive growth, innovation, and success.

Where did ERP begin?
Where did ERP begin?

Created in the 1960s, ERP systems were originally known as Material Requirement Planning MRP software, which ran on huge mainframe computers and was only affordable to larger businesses. It helped companies balance factory production with inventory management, enabling them to keep their stock levels low and reduce the amount of money tied up in warehouses.

The software soon expanded beyond manufacturing and stock control, integrating with other back-office functions such as finance, order management and distribution. It had moved on to become a more affordable and available solution, with businesses beyond the manufacturing industry making use of a connected operational platform. By the mid-1990s, governments and non-profit organisations had also begun to use the systems.

Today, Enterprise Resource Planning ERP software has become more advanced, offering powerful real-time performance insights, while helping to significantly reduce paper-based processes.

Choosing a software solution is an important strategic decision businesses must make as they grow. Companies want to ensure they get a fast return on their investment, and partner with the right supplier. However, with a lot of software jargon out there, decision-makers can often struggle to see what exactly is being proposed and ultimately understand the benefits of ERP solutions that are on offer.

For businesses just starting out, they can usually cope with managing information across multiple platforms and spreadsheets. However, as operations scale and complexities grow, this approach can become costly, time-consuming and prone to problems. It’s at this point that you’ll likely start looking for ways to keep up with increasing customer demand and avoid data mismanagement. Many business turn to what is known as an Enterprise Resource Planning system.

ERP systems are the backbone of organisations. They make sure that every department is working together efficiently and consistently.
