A growing business often leads to growing complications – new business operations, more employees, demanding customers, and an increase in transactions that are difficult to manage efficiently with entry-level or inadequate business software. Streamline these complex changes by replacing inadequate technology with a stronger enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.
New businesses often deploy entry-level solutions to manage basic business operations. An accounting solution can manage the most important part of a business, the finances, and spreadsheets or specialty software programs can be used to manage inventory and other operations. However, as your business grows, these entry-level solutions soon become inefficient. Some popular accounting solutions limit the number of users that can use the solution at the same time. In addition, as the volume of data increases, you may notice your software lagging or crashing because they can’t process such high volumes of data. Waiting to enter or access data can lead to productivity problems and if you can’t use your data, you may miss opportunities or otherwise stifle growth.
A robust ERP solution, such as Epicor® ERP, can manage the increasingly complex business operations that often come with business growth. You can manage all of your business activities from this single, integrated solution including finances, supply chain and inventory, manufacturing and distribution operations, and other core business processes. A single business solution is much easier to learn and use than multiple, disparate solutions. In addition, today’s ERP solutions were designed to handle larger volumes of data than most entry-level software programs. With all of your data housed in a centralized location, you and your team can enter and access the important data you need, when you need it, to make the business decisions that drive growth.
Epicor ERP also comes with powerful business intelligence that you can use to streamline operations, improve productivity, and boost profitability. The more you know about your business operations and your customers, the more you can optimize the activities that improve profit margins and satisfy customers.
As your business grows and changes, you will soon outgrow basic or entry-level software systems. Before you lose momentum, replace inadequate software with an integrated, ERP solution such as Epicor ERP.
