What is ERP?

ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning, which in short is a single software solution which integrates key business functions such as finance, supply chain management, operations, customer service, sales, marketing and more into one place to allow businesses to gain insight, reduce their costs and perform better. 

There are two ways ERP solutions can be deployed, on-premise and in the cloud.

What industries can ERP software be used for? 

ERP software can be used across a range of different industries and can also be tailored to specific businesses needs making it a highly flexible solution. At Syscom, we provide ERP software for large manufacturers, distributors and service management companies, however the introduction of cloud based and modular ERP software has made the cost more affordable and has opened the possibility of smaller organisations utilising an ERP system.

Signs you need an ERP software solution

Can you answer top level questions?

If someone came into your business and asked you what your most popular product was in 2019, or how effectively you delivered on projects in the last three months, could you answer them? If not, it means you are not using your data effectively. Utilising data to provide insight not only strengthens your organisations capabilities but it also helps to improve decision making across the business and in doing so improves processes, which ultimately effects your company’s bottom line. 

Time & Effort

If you find yourself struggling for time due to duplicating tasks throughout the day, this could mean that the systems you currently use are not completely integrated and are also probably not up to date with recent technology and capabilities.
