ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning.
In short, ERP software 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 solutions can be used across a range of different industries and can also be tailored to specific business needs.

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 last year, or how effectively you delivered on projects in the last three months, could you answer them easily? If not, it means you are not using your data effectively.
Utilising data to provide insight not only strengthens your organisation's capabilities but 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.
