Overcome 3 Major Growth Obstacles with a Multi-company ERP Solution

11 March 2021 7 MIN READ

Midsize businesses have an extensive appetite to grow and find themselves greater business opportunities to join the league of larger enterprises. While some are derived from the big entities, many of the midsize businesses start their life as small businesses which eventually grow organically or via merger into enterprise giants. Whatever the start maybe, the end-objective of every midsize business is nothing but growth. 

However, the increasingly tough global competition, rising operational costs, and lack of effective management tools and resources are pressurizing the mid-marketers to find newer ways to run their business. To cope with this increasing pressure while considering the roadmap to growth objectives, mid marketers need to ditch their existing legacy systems that do not support their rising business requirements.  Also as commented by:

However, it is not as easy as it seems to be. Mid-marketers have this big-time dilemma of which solution to choose from the several business automation solutions available in the market that could understand their specific challenges and render personalized solutions to them. 

Let’s first learn in detail the challenges that are common to all mid-marketers followed by we will move towards the power-packed ERP solution, specially designed to cater to midsize businesses. 

What Stunts the Growth Objectives of Mid-marketers?

Mid-marketers struggle with several challenges driven by the stiffer competition in the market, lack of strategic technology supporting their growth objectives, invisibility in the processes due to discrete systems for individual subsidiaries, inefficient communication platforms within the organization, etc.

Let’s see how these challenges impact the business:

1. Businesses Expand but the Subsidiary Systems Remain Old-School

Opening new joint ventures or offices in different geographies increase the number of subsidiaries within the midmarket corporate hierarchy. No matter what the subsidiary unit is handling from sales and distribution to customer services to backend operations, the IT solutions get distressed in these units as:

  • Not complete transparency is received to the headquarters related to operational efficiency
  • Maintaining intracompany transactions related to buying and selling of products becomes difficult
  • Maintaining financial reporting and facilitating a shared services structure is complicated

2. In an Ever-changing Organization’s Environment, Existing ERP System remains a Static Beast

Midsize businesses are prone to get wrapped up in the fantasy of expecting unconventional features from their existing legacy ERP systems that they are never designed to deliver. This is because, at the start of the business, features like future-ready, scalability, and agility to adapt to changing industry and business conditions in an ERP are not kept in mind. 

This is in the long turn creates hassles within the organization as:

  • Evolving business needs in the processes lack digital essence
  •  Keeping up with the growing customer base becomes difficult
  • Managing end-to-end functionalities with speed and efficiency remains a challenge

3. Implementing Complete Country/Region Localization While Expanding Scares the Most

Indeed it is! Determining and implementing the whole set of legal rules and regulations specific to a country or region while expanding midsize business globally or locally respectively in discrete systems is too complicated and time-consuming.  

  • Failing to standardize transcription creates trouble while understanding the intent of the customers
  • Identifying regulations and business practices of the targeted area/country is difficult
  • Satisfying local tax-related reporting and legal regulations are complex
