Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

Are you wondering, “what does ERP stand for?” ERP is an abbreviation for Enterprise Resource Planning. When talking about a computer system, it refers to a program linked to a central database.  Its goal is to simplify business processes, such as inventory/order handling, accounting, HR and project management, and improve communication among departments.

ERP business solutions give users a detailed view of what’s happening inside a business. Real time reports answer questions like:

  • How much are we product are we making?
  • How much inventory do we have?
  • How many orders are awaiting shipment?

Most ERP business solutions are modular, meaning that there is a section (module) that contains all the functions for each department. For example, finance, HR or manufacturing. In the past, most workers would only be given access to the module that matched their role.  But, with today’s modern, cloud ERPs there’s been a shift towards giving users access to the whole system for improved communication and teamwork.
