Enterpriseresource planning (ERP) integrates internal and external management information across an entire organization, embracing finance/accounting, manufacturing, sales and service, CRM, etc. ERP systems automate this activity with an integrated software application. Its purpose is to facilitate the flow of information between all business functions inside the boundaries of the organization and manage the connections to outside stakeholders.
ERP is a single software program that serves the needs of people in finance as well as it does the people in human resources and in the warehouse too. Each of those departments typically has its own computer system optimized for the particular ways that the department does its work. But ERP combines them all together into a single, integrated software program that runs off a single database so that the various departments can more easily share information and communicate with each other.
An effective ERP solution provides:
- Mange operating cost

- Provide timely, accurate information
- Process information quick and effective, accurately to provide possible solutions.
