 ERP Defined

 What exactly is ERP? Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is a specific type of management software used by businesses of all sizes. It is used to manage their daily business activities, which include inventory, order management, accounting, supply chain management and human resources. The ERP system allows data to flow freely between these business processes, eliminating data duplication.

Why Inventory ERP Software is a Great Addition to your Business for 2020 

ERP software allows all data to be stored in one database. All departments can access it for information purposes and when making decisions. Listed below are reasons why ERP inventory software should be on your list of things to add to your business in 2020.

  1. Improved Analytics and Reporting
    When your team can access a central database, they can get the information they need for reports and decision-making quickly and easily. There isn’t any down time waiting for someone in a particular department to access the data, analyze it, and prepare a report when it’s needed. Anyone with the necessary permission can get the data as required.
  2. Allows for Inventory Tracking by Category
    With an ERP inventory management system, you have the option of tracking the inventory turnover in sections, as opposed to overall. The inventory can be categorized in different ways, allowing you to track whether certain types of inventory are turning over more rapidly than others. Based on this data, you may decide to buy some items in larger quantities to avoid running out of stock.
  3. Better Inventory Monitoring in Multiple Locations
    Keeping track of inventory levels across two (or more) locations can prove challenging. An inventory ERP software system gives you the capability of taking business expansion in stride. You can scale up as needed and track inventory wherever the items are located easily, whether they are at another warehouse, in transit between locations, or have been shipped to fill orders.

  4. More Efficient Inventory Replenishment
    Inventory levels must be accurate so when the signal is received that they must be replenished, orders can be made most beneficially for the company. When you have confidence in your data, you can buy in bulk when it makes sense to take advantage of lower prices from a supplier or decide to buy enough inventory for an entire season.
