Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is a huge concept that essentially boils down to software that manages some of the most important day-to-day operations of businesses, such as accounting, project management, and procurement. What makes ERP so valuable is the fact that it facilitates a flow of information between these different processes and departments for a level of consistency that would not otherwise be possible. The result is an organization whose functions are more streamlined due to the use of a central database; employees from entirely different areas of a corporation can trust that they’re relying upon the same information and following the same practices when ERP is utilized.
There are many benefits for businesses that utilize ERP, including decreased costs of operation, boosted insights, greater efficiency, and an overarching sense of collaboration which serves to improve morale and company culture, so it’s no wonder that so many organizations invest time and resources into robust ERP efforts.
