How can you ensure the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution you’re considering will meet all needs of your growing business? Be sure to get answers to these critical questions before making a decision.
Most companies find it difficult to break through a growth bottleneck and performance typically falls after rapid development in the early stage of the venture. To become a long-term sustainable growth company, you need to take advantage of growth trends, be flexible, and use limited funds to the cutting edge. What is the secret of using ERP for growth companies?
Every company can’t work without purchase, sales and inventory management, but it’s not an easy task. For example, the return rate of e-stores is much higher than traditional retail. If the size of the clothes is not suitable, the returned goods need to be re-stocked. If there is no professional system of business support, it is easy to cause confusion in inventory management. Enterprises should organize the working process from the beginning, paying attention to the value of data. Moreover, provide the best practice business management platform for the industry.
Cloud back up
SMEs may be lack of IT professionals. Their application requires a “ready to go” approach. SAP Business ByDesign integrates into Excel’s visual interface and business scenario-based best practices, which not only shortens the ERP implementation deployment cycle, but also makes it easy for users to use. It also adapts to the variability of customer service and has very good integration capabilities to help SMEs connect to third-party applications in any upstream and downstream supply chain.

For SMEs, the cloud not only saves initial procurement costs and accelerates the deployment cycle, it also allows companies to add or deduct business modules at any time, and allows each business module to easily exchange and integrate data through the API. SAP Business ByDesign can flexibly adapt to the development needs of the system from small to large. Especially, built-in analysis and mobile portal to help enterprises truly realize business data and data business.

The sheer complexity of a new ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system can make it quite difficult for your employees. Also, given the learning curve of adopting a completely new ERP program. But your investment in a new ERP will waste unless your staff adapts to it, and begins using it for their day-to-day tasks. In this blog post, we’ll explore a few of the ways you can encourage your colleagues to adopt a new ERP system.
1. Emphasize The Benefits Of The New ERP
There are likely quite a few reasons you implemented a new ERP – and most of them probably involve being able to handle massive amounts of data from staff, customers, supplier, shipping partners, and more – from diverse sources.
Emphasize that, despite initial difficulties using the system, your new ERP will make it easier for your employees. Especially, to handle digital processes, and encourage better decision-making through business analytics. The end result? Their jobs get easier!
2. Encourage Learning, And Make Sure To Adapt Your System To Staff Needs
First, you need to encourage your employees to learn – both with hands-on experience with the ERP. Also, through e-learning modules and training sessions.
In addition, make it clear that the ERP system can be changed and adapted, based on the needs of your staff, and their workplace processes which can be automated.
By encouraging staff to learn new things – and adapting your ERP to their workflows – you can rapidly increase staff adoption and buy-in.
3. Create A Clear ERP Management Hierarchy
You must assign a team to the management and coordination of your ERP, to ensure that your staff and IT workers have the information they need for their working processes, and for managing your new ERP system.
4. Get Long-Term and Reliable Support
ERP is going to stay in your company for a very long time. So you need to find a reliable vendor and/or implementation partner to support you and your team. Small issues, such as create new users in your system, to big problem such as Year-end closing errors or system failure after power outage, these people are critical to make your ERP system healthy.
