One of the greatest advantages of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software is that it’s designed to be used throughout all departments of your company; from product planning and sales, to inventory maintenance and accounting.
Combining your company’s processes into one cohesive system eliminates data silos, and reduces manual processes. ERP provides a unified platform that helps departments intercommunicate, allowing your business to run more efficiently.
While ERP interacts with all of your departments, there’s one team in particular that should be heavily involved in your implementation and ongoing use of your ERP system: your IT department.
IT’s view on ERP systems
When it comes to choosing an ERP system, your information technology (IT) team is likely to have high expectations and particular must-haves. When you find an ERP system that can live up to the expectations of the IT department, there’s a high chance the same system will fit your business as a whole. Viewing ERP from the perspective of the IT team is also a good way to ensure the system you select can be adjusted and scaled to provide the support each department needs.
