8 benefits of using ERP software

Not sure if your organization benefits from using ERP software? Or do you already work with an ERP system and are you wondering what the advantages are? Here are eight benefits you can expect:


1. Increase In Productivity: ERP software helps you to be more productive. Outdated systems can slow you down and hinder you in many ways. Moving to a new ERP system, based on modern technology, can give you a productivity boost.  

2. Integrated Information: Even with an ERP system in place already, the information in your organization can be fragmented. It can be stored in supporting systems, Excel sheets, on paper or in the heads of your people. A new ERP system can help you centralize and organize all information.

3. Real-time Information: It becomes increasingly important to have access to real-time information and new technologies make that easier. Real-time information gives you the ability to quickly intervene where necessary. Trends and developments can be spotted early, enabling you to act proactively.

4. Improved Communication: New technologies enable you to communicate better, both with your co-workers and with the outside world. And improved communication brings many benefits. It can speed things up, save time, save costs, enhance productivity and improve customer satisfaction.

5. Improved Inventory: ERP can help you to reduce inventory costs and get more grip on your inventory, by enhancing planning and control.

6. Improved Access: Users become more productive with access to the system anywhere and anytime on a mobile device. For instance, your service department, sales people, or the rental and transportation department.

7. Improved Security: Your data needs to be accurate and up-to-date, but also secure. New systems meet the latest standards for data security. A new ERP system can help you minimize the risks of data loss and unauthorized access.

8. Make Work more Fun: Although a new ERP system brings a new way of working and takes time for people to get used to, it can also make their job a lot more fun. A user-friendly, intuitive, fast and modern software solution is pleasant and fun to work with.
