A new ERP system is one of the most critical and transformative investments that a business can make. The effect on productivity and efficiency can be enormous as it adds value across all sectors of the company. Fully equipped, modern ERP software delivers cutting-edge functionality to introduce a business of any size or complexity to the digital era.
Strengths of the cloud
Cloud computing has been a game changer for businesses around the world. The cloud’s momentum is still building and, when surveyed, 85% of SMEs said cloud computing was helping to grow their businesses. Compared with on-premise solutions, the cloud has a lower upfront cost, a quicker ROI and significantly reduces demands on IT staff. It offers unprecedented scalability and flexibility, making it fundamental to digital transformation. A modern-day ERP should offer flexible deployment options, including private cloud deployment (single-tenant SaaS), public cloud deployment (multi-tenant SaaS) and the traditional on-premise solutions.
High degree of customisation
An ERP system should never hold back a business although older-generation systems are known for doing just that. Businesses were forced to contend with software and systems that did not provide the functionality they required, resulting in expensive and time-consuming customisations. With a modern ERP like Sage X3 (and considering that no two businesses are alike), the ability to configure allows you to introduce company-specific procedures, communication triggers and quality assurances into the system with little effort and costs.
Accessible business data
A modern ERP system aggregates the important data on which your business runs into a single holistic system. This makes it less risky for businesses to plan for the future since the data makes predicting and managing disruptions or changes in demand more intelligent. Businesses can also keep a tighter control on inventories, reducing the expenses associated with excess stock and the dangers of stock shortages.
Traditional manual systems for data management were time-consuming to manage and lacked reliability. The automation of a modern ERP system eliminates the risk of human error and ensures data integrity while dramatically increasing accessibility. Integrating financial data into a modern ERP system enables a deeper level of insight and facilitates the automatic creation of invoices and sales orders making for a faster, more efficient and more reliable billing process.
Modern ERP software allows for a greater visibility into performance and costs while making all processes from inventory tracking to customer service smoother and more efficient. By adapting to the users’ specific roles, it provides secure access to the data they need. Management of the business’s software is also made simple with a suite of unified applications.
