What is ERP?

    Email | Print

    As a growing business you may often hear that you are outgrowing your accounting system and you should look at an ERP Solution that will fit your functionality needs.  You nod knowingly.  Once you are alone, you think, What is ERP?    Quickly you turn to your laptop, pull up Bing and type in ERP.   A Wikipedia post indicates that ERP is Enterprise Resource Planning.  Still not sure what that means you continue reading, “Enterprise resource planning systems integrate internal and external management information across an entire organization, embracing finance/accounting, manufacturing, sales and service, customer relationship management etc.    Common characteristics include an integrated system that operates in real time, common database, consistent look and feel and installation of the system without elaborate application/data integration by the IT department.”

     Microsoft offers four ERP solutions:  AX, GP, NAV and SL.  Microsoft Dynamics GP is an option for the small to midsize company whose functionality requirements  may include: Financial Management, Business Intelligence, Supply Chain Management, Human Resources & Payroll Management, Manufacturing, Project Managemen,t and Service Management.     Microsoft Dynamics GP offers this out of the box functionality and allows the user to be up and running quickly so you can improve your financials and streamline operations.
