ERP is an abbreviation for Enterprise Resource Planning. ERP programs are large and complex systems that may be found in both the private and public sectors. They provide information about all aspects of your business, from finance to manufacturing to marketing and more. These programs may be integrated with other areas of your company such as supply chain management and customer relationship management (CRM).

Enterprise Resource Planning – ERP is also referred to as a “business operating system”. This type of software helps you with all the core functions of your business, including accounting, manufacturing, customer service, inventory management, and human resource management. The Internet boom has made it possible for businesses across the globe to compete in an era of globalization.

The manufacturing industry is an area where ERP systems are necessary for companies to stay competitive in the market. An ERP system ensures that all operations are done in one location, reducing manpower and transportation costs. MRP (material requirements planning) will help prevent shortages of inventory by notifying managers when materials need to be ordered.

As manufacturing companies grow and become more complex, the need to adopt ERP systems becomes apparent. For manufacturers who are not yet on ERP, the cost of upgrading their legacy systems can be prohibitively expensive. Especially when they are not leveraging technology to drive efficiency in their business process. One way that manufactures are solving the dilemma of upgrading old manufacturing software or starting fresh is by choosing cloud-based ERP.

The only solution is to have an end-to-end integrated ERP solution catering to all the business functions of the Manufacturing Industry.
