“He who fails to plan is planning to fail.”
- Winston Churchill (1874-1965), iconic statesman and world leader.
For any organization desirous of success, planning is crucial. Whether it’s planning for customer demand or regulatory compliance, ERP or Enterprise Resource Planning can help organizations navigate the intricacies of hierarchies and complexities of data.
An ERP system collects and collates information from all corners of an organization to improve efficiencies and effectiveness through optimal usage of resources, better planning, faster decision-making and eliminating redundancies. For example, an ERP system may be responsible for tracking inventory in Manufacturing, maintaining accounts in Finance, monitoring campaigns in Marketing, procuring materials in Supply Chain Management, and much more. In other words, a single ERP system can replace the traditional paradigm of individual standalone systems for the different business functions that don’t communicate well with one another. In this way, ERP systems transcend functional boundaries in organizations.
