When you are focused on running your business and satisfying customers, you may not notice that there is a growing disconnect with your business software. With growth comes change and your basic business software may not be able to handle those changes. New types of data and an added volume of data can cause software to lag, which causes your people to pursue other means to collect and record data. A strong business management solution can strengthen your connections between teams and data, and strengthen your business at the same time.
While you are focused on customers you may not have the chance to see what is going on behind the scenes. Your accounting team may be struggling with entry-level accounting software and procurement may be having a hard time finding inventory data within complex spreadsheets. Other departments may have similar frustrations with inadequate business technology. These disconnections create delays with sharing and using data to make the business decisions that drive growth. Strengthen your connections with a stronger technology.
Provide your team with a stronger business tool, an integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution such as Epicor® ERP. You can manage all of your core processes from Epicor ERP including financial processes, supply chain and inventory, manufacturing and distribution operations, as well as human resources and payroll activities. One solution is much easier to learn and use than several disparate solutions and more efficient. Your people can enter data once and it can be accessed and used by different departments. For example, a customer order can be entered and inventory counts updated. Instead of rekeying customer data, that same information can be used from the proposal, through order fulfillment, and used again for invoicing. Reducing redundant data not only saves time, it protects data integrity.
Epicor ERP is designed to handle different types of business data and greater volumes of data, which naturally comes with business change and growth. Business intelligence and robust reporting features also provide insight into your data that you can use to your competitive advantage. You can respond quicker to new opportunities and improve productivity and profitability throughout your business.
Instead of struggling with inadequate, entry-level business software, deploy a comprehensive ERP solution like Epicor ERP. Contact RAM Software Systems for more information about using ERP to strengthen your business connections.
