Traditional approach to ERP
Some text books and works of reference define ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software as a suite of integrated business applications that enable end-to-end business management.
Traditionally these areas may be broadly defined as:
Product planning, cost and development
Marketing and sales
Shipping and payment
Is your ERP software keeping in step?
The accelerating tempo of business resulting from changes such as globalisation, shorter product lifecycles and the development of omnichannel elements like eCommerce and social media, means that ERP needs to keep in step if businesses are to remain competitive.
The fact is that because of the significant costs attached to traditional on-premise ERP systems, many smaller and mid-market wholesale distribution businesses either lack or soldier along with older, legacy systems. As a result they have been unable to match the pace of market change.
