Aside from initial time saving, ERP systems were originally built for lengthy time-consuming processes like manufacturing cycles. With a proper ERP system in place, it can help you to accomplish items like establishing material planning for accurate projections so you don’t waste time ordering what isn’t yet needed. ERP systems can also help to alleviate the need to have an endless cycle of administrative paper changing by having everything in one place and on a schedule.
Management also saves time with ERP software by having all reports and dashboards in one easy to read place. This means no more late nights pouring over headache-inducing spreadsheets trying to establish reports for the important meeting at the end of the week because the system will do it for you and also saves the worry of human error potential.

SAP and Oracle both invest heavily in cloud technology. However, our client was skeptical about cloud scalability and unsure if the products were mature and proven.
2. How it Saves Money
Of course “time is money” but money itself its money and the bottom line is the primary focus for many organizations so saving money is a big goal. By saving administrative time this save payroll time which saves money as payroll is often one of three top expenses for any organization. From the above, by material planning via ERP software then this alleviates the waste of ordering material which isn’t needed. On the other hand, this also saves money by erasing the need to rush ship things when there isn’t enough material.
ERP software can also help to control inventory which means that this will lessen theft should that be an issue, monitor cost of inventory and help with scaling up processes and give facility managers an idea of how much inventory is actually under their roof.
