Growing Vibrant Busnesses Through ERP

ERP represents Enterprise Resource Planning, which is a software wizard that brings together adventurous functions of a business. Such functions may include and not limited to; manufacturing and production, accounting and finance, HR, supply-chain and customer relationship management.

Three vital components that ERP integrates and synchronize are Information Technology, Business Processes and Business Objectives. The abilities that ERP brings by combining departments and components of a business together are many. For instance, these may be demographically far apart, ERP draws them to a comprehensive and central system.

By synchronizing and integrating business processes through ERP, efficiency and results can be measured effectively. CRP(Customer Relationship Management) is resourceful for being able to monitor and see up-to-date customer service processes and their satisfaction perceptions. ERP is valuable for its capability to improve financial performance of a company when well implemented. This is possible through prevention of accidental losses, fraud and theft.

ERP’s key feature of giving business owners and managers, the privilege to know where money is spent improves efficiency. This aspect presents owners and managers with an opportunity to target areas to reduce costs. The model is a transparent communication tool that joins customers and suppliers, into a department of a company, to ensure solid exchange of information. Such information may include, purchase orders, delivery schedules and performance reports.

Major signs and reasons why an ERP implementation fails.

In some way or the other, we all know the Enterprise Resource Planning in itself is a monster. A typical ERP system consists of almost ten to fifteen modules that are designed to automatically process almost each and every aspect of the business processes. Be it a supply chain to the shop floor, be it the account payables or be it something else in between, the ERP system is supposed to process everything.

With all these processing and functions taking place, the chances that problems would arise are almost inevitable if the implementation is not done carefully. One of the major signs that an EMP implementation would fail is overuse of default configurations and methods. If the implemenation is done using defaults rather than using the customs, the chances that the system would not be able to provide required results get elevated.

Then some make the mistake of overlooking the fact that a system needs constant upgradations in order to keep up with the requirements of the business.Now coming to the major causes of a failure in the ERP systems. The firstmost and the most obvious one is the selection of an unsuitable ERP package.

It is obvious that a system that is not programmed to perform the tasks required by a business would certainly be of no good to that business. So, one should be careful while selecting the package. The easiest way to avoid this issue is to get full-fledged details of the package. Another reason why the system fails is the inability of the members to provide sufficient support in terms of proper maintenance, upgradations, etc.

Sometimes, lack of proper knowledge and skills result in things such as over customizations, wrong alignments, etc. And all these ultimately lead to the failure of the ERP systems. So, the best way to avoid all these problems is to get a proper team that has adequate knowledge about what is happening around the business and give the implementation tasks to them and not to the others that are not so involved in all this.
