Implementation of an ERP system: what are the benefits of automating business management ERP-SYSTEM
Managers and even the leaders of many commercial companies often use the term ERP as a continuation and almost a synonym for the term CRM. They even consider ERP systems for enterprise resource planning (from the English Enterprise Resource Planning System) as a form of CRM systems for sales automation. But in fact, the introduction of ERP-systems changes not only the principles of working with clients, but the whole philosophy of doing business and the principles of company management. Implementation of an ERP system is not just a step in development, it is a digital leap in business transformation.
It is incorrect to draw parallels between ERP-systems, programs for accounting automation or CRM-solutions because the introduction of an ERP-system involves the automation and synchronization of absolutely all business processes and resources of the company, rather than focusing on a specific field of activity, such as accounting or sales .
A full-fledged ERP system should include a CRM solution, an accounting module, and other information systems that provide personnel, warehouse and financial accounting.
This includes control of production processes, and optimization of work with suppliers, and a systematic approach to logistics, and much more. ERP-system provides management of absolutely all assets and resources, regardless of their value and location.
This allows you to use ERP-systems to automate the work of both commercial companies focused on the sale of goods and the provision of services, as well as large organizations and corporations in the field of production, banking, government, education, medicine, insurance, energy or finance. The introduction of ERP systems is especially effective when there are different legal entities and taxation schemes, separate bank accounts and national representations, areas of activity and management principles in one company or holding.
Implementation of the ERP-system allows you to synchronize accounting in terms of using different currencies, languages and national standards. At the same time, the differentiation of access rights to a server or cloud ERP system through a web interface or a mobile application allows increasing the efficiency and qualification of all personnel, and not just top management and business owners.
What is an ERP system? Modular principle
In a simplified form, an ERP system can be described as a software package that includes 3 key components.
Thus, the introduction of an ERP system makes it possible to monitor all business processes in an enterprise in real time. The functionality of the program is determined by the number and name of the modules used. In addition, the modular principle allows you to implement individual functions of an ERP system in stages and even combine and integrate software components of different developers in one system. To do this, apply solutions that provide interaction with the system through different data transmission channels – low-level solutions for database synchronization, web protocols, interaction through instant messengers, telephony, secure financial transactions, etc.
What components can an ERP system include? Function modules
Functional modules of an ERP system can be internal or external and include both tools for controlling resources (warehouse, finance, personnel), and solutions for customers (personal accounts on the company’s website, e-commerce solutions, etc.). Ideally, access to the system is obtained by everyone who formally interacts with the company both as a staff and as a counterparty or client.
Traditionally, 3 groups of functional modules providing financial, personnel and operational accounting are distinguished as part of ERP systems.
As a result, the implementation of an ERP system implies the integration of several software components that can exist separately. These are CRM systems (Customer Relationship Management) for managing customer relationships, and PPM systems (Project portfolio management) for managing a portfolio of projects, and PLM systems (Product Lifecycle Management) for monitoring the product life cycle, and MES systems (Manufacturing Execution System) production management, and SCM-systems (Supply Chain Management) supply management and much, much more.
What will give a commercial company the introduction of an ERP system Benefits of ERP Systems
The main result that a business will receive from implementing an ERP system is to maximize the effectiveness of company management. Data on all resources and interactions will allow:
Moreover, as already mentioned, this applies not only to top management. For example, a sales employee who has gained access to an ERP system will also be able to see, say, the entire history of a customer relationship and know the remaining goods in stock.
As a result, he will be able to independently make decisions in the field of management and, say, refuse to sell without a 100% prepayment of a valuable product to a client with a bad credit history. But without problems, he will write similar documents for payment to a reliable and trusted client, the status of which will be indicated in a personal card in the ERP system.
Thus, it becomes clear that the full implementation of the ERP-system is impossible without deep and adequate training for all its users.
How is the development of an ERP system Development stages
The introduction of an ERP system implies the creation of a software solution, the development cycle of which meets the general principles of software development. The process can be divided into the following stages:
Why should we entrust the implementation of an ERP system to us? AVADA-MEDIA
Avada Media already has experience implementing business automation systems for customers from various industries. For example, our development – a system for developers “Newbuilding” implements part of the functionality of the ERP-system for the needs of a commercial company in the field of construction and sale of real estate.
This solution allows you to automatically synchronize data on real estate, clients, realtors and all the necessary documents for sale.
Data on the status change of the selected object is transmitted without delay to any client or manager with the ability to display on the web and on mobile devices.
Avada Media also completed similar projects for customers in the field of tourism, restaurant business, taxi services, utilities, etc. More details on completed projects can be found in the corresponding section. The term of the ERP-system implementation depends on the scale and functionality of the solution and is at least 3-6 months.
