Organisational growth demands smarter working solutions.
From solving production bottlenecks to eliminating inefficiencies and delivering better operational data, an ERP system will stimulate growth by making your whole company work smarter, not harder.
Why use an ERP system?
Companies choose an ERP system when they are looking to grow, but are being held back by traditional methods of working and management.
An ERP system can improve and simplify processes across every area of your business. It will introduce efficient workflows, automate tasks and reduced duplication of work. This increases the overall efficiency of your operations.
An ERP solution will also bring together information from across your business. It can replace other disparate and disconnected systems (accounting programs, production software, HR systems and so on) with a central unified solution where wall staff can work from. And by bringing all of your key data together, you'll be able to generate better business intelligence and insight into your performance.
Organisations can use an ERP to:
- Oversee all operations, from production to service delivery.
- Manage all sales leads and customer enquiries from a central location.
- Simplify and streamline work processes.
- Run accounts and automate billing.
- Generate up-to-the-minute business reporting.
Nine out of ten companies that adopt an ERP system say that it has improves some or all of their processes. These efficiencies quickly add up to tangible savings for your business. This is usually accompanied by an uplift in sales, thanks to better management of new and existing customers.
Benefits of an ERP system
An ERP can benefit the following areas of your operations:
Track all information about enquiries from new and existing customers from start to finish within your ERP. Manage details of potential sales, order enquiries by the level of interest and prioritise those that are ready to buy. Once a sale is agreed, automatically pass details straight to your manufacturing or service teams for completion, and to accounts for billing.
Improve communication, automate processes, and track the processing of orders with always up-to-date information. Use Microsoft Dynamics to find production bottlenecks and predict resource shortfall, then make adjustments to improve operations before problems arise.
An ERP system can deliver a real-time overview of your business’ finances wherever you are. From automating daily tasks to generating status reports, simplify how your business manages its cash flow to support operations and maximise profit.
