Most of us would live by the notion that it is only the big organizations that need robust Enterprise Resource Planning or ERP systems. Well, the fact is that smaller businesses need an ERP as much (rather more!)
Consider the key challenges areas for a small / medium enterprise: broken communication between departments, unskilled labor, multiple small applications, legacy systems and no centralized management. While these may look like addressable issues initially, as businesses scale, these small gaps become mammoth. Lack of any centralized process and management leads to redundant costs and loss of business. The solution to streamline and align all processes and departments in one direction is to migrate to an effective ERP solution most suitable for small businesses.
From building clear and real time communication channels between departments, to getting actionable insights about customers, vendors, inventory and more, an ERP can reconcile multiple operations into one robust system that is easy to manage and understand. The alerts generated by the system enable businesses to take faster decisions and avoid unnecessary delays. The historical insights maintained in the system also enable business owners to analyze gaps and plan for future in a better way.
