Is Your Business Ready for ERP Software?


Email | Print

As businesses grow and change, their needs grow and change also. If you started out small, as many businesses do, you might have been able to get by with a filing cabinet and a sharp pencil. Maybe you graduated to using spreadsheets and QuickBooks. But as your business continues to grow, and you continue to add staff as well as clients, entry-level tools might not be meeting your present needs and certainly won’t be positioning you for growth. Maybe it’s time for an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning)  software solution like SalesPad Desktop and  Microsoft Dynamics GP .

Why ERP?

No doubt you are looking for ways to help your company operate more efficiently. You can actually save money and increase profits by automating with ERP. ERP software can help you organize your people and your programs to work smarter and achieve more. In fact, a solution such as Microsoft Dynamics GP will facilitate everything from operations and financial management to human resources, supply chain management, and manufacturing. ERP will connect the many aspects of your organization and give you better visibility, insight, and control over your business.

One system for everything

You probably weren’t in business very long before you discovered software options that promised to revolutionize various aspects of your business. You may even have tried some of them and had good success. But as your business grows, it becomes increasingly important to have a unified system whose components integrate well with each other. If you’ve purchased software piecemeal, (e.g., one system for accounting, one for human resources, another for manufacturing) they may not harmonize. Even if they get the job done, they will require a lot of duplicate input and will lack the level of seamless integration that your team needs to be genuinely effective. Reports run on one system may not take into account data from another system. You’re left with various versions of truth. An integrated ERP solution will bring the individual parts of your company into harmonized automation and turn a patchwork of software systems into a truly useful solution.

Why Dynamics GP?

When a company first introduces new technology, some employees may hesitate to use it. They may prefer to skip the whole learning curve and continue operating as they always have. Microsoft Dynamics GP has a huge advantage over other ERP systems. Because it is built on the Microsoft platform, the look and feel will be familiar to your employees who have been using other Microsoft tools such as Outlook. Dynamics GP will quickly win converts when they see how it can organize, automate, and protect against human error.  Managers will appreciate built-in securities and up to the minute reporting.

Why SalesPad

SalesPad works inside the Dynamics GP database and provides fantastic tools to manage order workflow while providing an intricate view of the current state of your operation.  If you process customer orders, stock inventory, and/or manage a supply chain then SalesPad can be extremely valuable to improving the quality of your customer service and increasing your profitability at the same time.

ERP software can help your small or midsized business become more efficient and profitable.
