How do you know when your business is ready?
It’s not always easy to tell. After all, every business is different, with its own needs and ways of working. So what signs should you look for?
One indicator can be how you compare with your competitors. Do you feel like they’re always one step ahead of you? If you can, try to take a step back from the day to day running of your business too. Does it feel like things could be done better? If either answer is yes, it might be time to look at Enterprise Resource Planning.
Behind its very grand title, ERP is actually quite simple. It uses the latest software to bring together all the core functions of your business, automating and integrating them to be more efficient. Which might not sound like it’s a big change, but you’ll certainly notice the benefits!
A good ERP system integrates every process from ordering to distribution, so everything goes more smoothly, simply…and faster. So your productivity improves, with more efficiency, fewer errors and less duplication.
Once an ERP systems in place, you have all the information you need on every part of your business to hand, too – so it’s a lot easier to take an overview of your business, and make better, more-informed decisions.
And while you might think ERP is only for large corporations, you’d be surprised how much smaller businesses can benefit – especially if you have various original systems in place in different departments. ERP means each one talks to the other, and co-ordinates everything beautifully.
