Demystifying SAP: What is ERP?

October 24, 2018

ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. Think about all the core processes needed to run a company: finance, HR, manufacturing, supply chain, services, procurement, and others. At its most basic level, ERP integrates these processes into a single system. But new ERP systems are anything but basic. They provide intelligence, visibility, analytics, and efficiency across every aspect of a business. Using the latest technologies, ERP systems facilitate the flow of real-time information across departments and ecosystems, so businesses can make data-driven decisions and manage performance.

 

The benefits of ERP
An ERP system is made up of enterprise resource planning applications (“ERP modules”) that talk to each other and share a database. This means you can eliminate information silos between departments and give everyone a single source of truth. Your system can automate your core business processes and help you ensure regulatory compliance, reduce risk, fast-track reporting – and so much more. 

 

ERP system examples
ERP systems usually include applications for accounting, human resources, sales CRM, and supply chain management. But you can combine different modules to better meet your needs. For example, you could add ERP components for e-commerce, inventory and order management, and fulfillment. Or include applications designed for a wide range of industries, from manufacturing to retail.
