Considerations when Selecting ERP Software for your Manufacturing Business: Integration is Key

Email | Print

You may agree integration is the underlying strength of ERP software. By cultivating a single view of company data, your organization can substantially improve information flow, data consistency, and collaboration across department boundaries. When evaluating ERP, manufacturers should consider several key attributes that generally define ERP software:

  1. The system is integrated across departments and business functions, and offers real-time data updates to users.
  2. ERP generally uses a single, common database across the enterprise, to facilitate data consistency and uniformity in all departments.
  3. All modules in the ERP suite should use a common user interface, which simplifies training and eases change management.

These attributes of ERP software reflect the importance of integration and sharing information across the enterprise. Without ERP, automated data exchange across departments can be limited, redundant data entry may be required, and reporting inconsistencies are often a problem. An ERP system allows information to flow freely across departmental boundaries, which simplifies reporting and improves decision-making.
