What is ERP?

Email | Print

What exactly does ERP really mean? In this TLA (Three Letter Acronym) post and video, I'll explain the technical term in a way everyone can understand.

ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. Those three words combine to make a rather complex term that encompasses a very simple philosophy. If you own a business with different departments like: inventory, HR, sales & marketing, and accounting, and all those areas use different software and equipment, it’s difficult for them all to communicate effectively.

An ERP streamlines all those different areas so they can be more efficient. For example, a salesperson can find out in real time if they have the inventory to fulfill an order they are working on and close the deal.

If you have any additional questions, drop us a note or give us a call at (859) 252-6225. Thanks for watching.

    Thanks John!
    I read your blog. Here you mentioned that if you have ERP software than you don’t have to keep separate software for inventory, HR, sales & marketing and accounting the single ERP software will do the all task. But what if someone is managing his accounting part with any accounting software like Quickbooks and want to integrate it with ERP managing other deartments.
