​When selecting an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system for your business, it’s imperative that you have optimised your current business processes. This will help you understand the pain points and areas that are lacking, or falling short in order to take steps to improve them.

The ‘Amazon’ effect has led to higher consumer expectations, the expectation and ability to receive a product at minimal cost within 24 hours door-to-door. This drives the need for innovative systems to be implemented in order to keep up with the competition.

What is the importance of an efficient ERP in SCM?

INTERACTION

Business leaders need to be able to interact with key members in the team at each stage, including external suppliers and partners, to turn raw materials into a finished product.

VISIBILITY

Greater visibility into a business’s ecosystem at each stage of the process is pivotal so that function delivers what it needs to, so the chain continues to move.

REAL TIME UPDATES

Key business decisions will rely on instantaneous data that displays supply and demand, current finances, and process trends.

FEWER BOTTLENECKS

A disconnection between an ERP and any internal SCM software can cause costly delays and cause consumer frustration.

ACCURATE FORECASTING

Complex product lifecycles and changes in supply and demand, can lead to lack of/or an abundance of inventory, so it’s vital to ensure that data is clearly displayed to ensure customer expectations are met.

Are you questioning whether your current ERP delivers all the above?

Are you unsure of the capabilities that your platform delivers, due to lack of training or understanding during implementation?

Whether it is an implementation, or an enhancement of your current system, we have experience in providing talent solutions for clients and can help you find the talent you need to deliver your projects on time and in budget.
