ERP – The Basics!

What is ERP?

Enterprise Resource Planning, or ERP in short, refers to a business management system or software that can help an organisation to manage their resources and operational processes.  Whether you are running a single branch or multiple distribution centres, ERP systems have grown integral to modern-day businesses.

Why does my business need an ERP system?

Customer expectations are on the rise and businesses who are not able to provide quick and efficient service with streamlined processes, might simply loose customers to the competition. For most businesses it is no longer viable to continue using manual processes or outdated software.
