Enterprise Resource Planning

Understanding Technically
Each department typically has its own computer system optimized for the particular ways that the department does its work. ERP combines them all together into a single, integrated software program that runs off a single database so that the various departments can more easily share information and communicate with each other.

Enterprise Resource Planning

Benefits
• Seamless integration across the geography • People in these different departments all see the same information and can update it. • When one department finishes with the order it is automatically routed via the ERP system to the next department. • To find out where the order is at any point, you need only log in to the ERP system and track it down. • Customers get their orders faster and with fewer errors than before. • ERP can apply that same magic to the other major business processes, such as employee benefits or financial reporting.
