What is Entreprise Resource Planning (ERP) ?

ERP is a term used to describe the management of all your resources within your business in order to improve performance. These processes generally cover procurement, sales, inventory and general accounting. They can include fixed assets, employee expenses and HR. 

CRM and ERP options

How does ERP help organisations grow?

1. By reducing cost of sales

Using an ERP makes it easier to track costs within the critical processes of your business. This helps reduce time and expense mistakes within your purchasing department. ERP also helps prevent discounts issues by controling margins and promotes faster customer payments. Project costing, stock valuation are all easier to track within an ERP. 

2. By increasing liquidity

An ERP system helps you automate customer reminder letters, which in turn helps you get paid faster, without having to put as much effort into it. Better control on cost of sales and margins also means access to money faster. ERP’s also allow for time and expense entry, which will be either carried by the company or invoiced back to the customer. 

3. By controlling cashflow

An ERP allows you to challenge your vendors before paying them. Using an ERP, you will be able to see the state of each vendor bill, the quality of goods and services received and the time they took to be delivered. Vendor credit terms, payment facilities and currency are ways forr you to control the flow of expenses coming out of your business.

How to choose the right ERP?

The right ERP for your business is the one which is easiest to use for everyone.
It must allow your departments to work better together.

The ERP you choose should be easy to learn, flexible to your needs and that of your employees.
That way, your accounting, receivables, payables, HR and project teams will be able to work on a single system…

The right ERP is one that also answers to your local fiscal requirements. These include:
1) Value added tax calculation (VAT) and reporting
2) Acceptable financial reports (General ledger, trial balance, Profit and Loss and the Balance Sheet)
3) Localised reports and printouts (i.e Your government may require a list of all items included in your delivery pack, presented in a specific format. or as in the case of France, an FEC extract or a DAS2)
