Enterprise resource planning (ERP) refers to a type of software that organizations use to manage day-to-day business activities such as accounting, procurement, project management, risk management and compliance, and supply chain operations. How does it help my business? ERP systems enable businesses to have greater insight and visibility into their business providing them multi-dimensional views of information and control. Irrespective of the size of the organization, access to this key information allows them to make critical business decisions and to maintain a competitive edge in their industry. With effective ERP in place, business owners and leaders can automate and streamline tedious back-office tasks, help employees become more productive and successful in their roles, and get real-time visibility into the inner workings of their operations.
