Posted by Kevin Booth on May, 15, 2021 07:05

At the start of the year 2021, the global ERP software market touched the $41.69 billion mark, which was unexpected by some business leaders. The popularity of the ERP software gained a pace during the late 2010s, and from that time till now, it has been typically helping businesses at all scales grow larger and gain maximum profits.

Some users may find the ERP software difficult to understand, but it is an important tool for their business. As globalization is squeezing the markets internationally, it is important to equip your business with effective’s tools to get a strategic advantage over the competitors. 

Several big names in the market took early advantage of the ERP software and have made a stronghold in the market. ERP software is usually used by businesses to manage the core functions in a centralized and integrated way. Businesses that largely need to rely on their staff, customers, and inventory usually face many difficulties without the use of ERP software.

In this blog post we will talking about the benefits of Microsoft ERP Products.

ERP software can typically help a business in the following ways:

Saving of Money 

There are plenty of flexibly priced On-Premises or Cloud based ERP software present in the market, but several ERP software involves huge investment. This level of investment may seem absurd to some people, but they should be well aware that the investment will keep on giving long term benefits to the business. The ERP software unifies those systems which may be fragmented for the business.

The employees in the business get to access the necessary tools for the business through one centralized database. The unifying of everything, the time saved would help the employees focus on other important tasks. This would help to bring down the extra costs of the company by a huge margin. You can check pricing structure of one such ERP system from Microsoft. Microsoft Dynamics ERP Pricing

Business Central ERP Benefits

Better Collaboration

The features of an ERP software will depend on the application a business prefers to use, but the collaboration support from every ERP software would be the same. With the centralized database, the business is provided with a single source of truth to work from. This eliminates any errors brought in by working with the incorrect data and further reduces the extra costs for the business. Effective collaboration is the key to success for any business. For effective collaboration between several departments within the same business, ERP software is the best.

The ERP software keeps updating the business information on a real-time data analysis basis, which allows the departments within the organization to communicate more efficiently. When the communication gap is removed, better working in the business takes place. The collaboration between the distribution department, inventory department and the accounting department promotes better delivery of the goods and creates a good impression.

Better Productivity

With the use of traditional methods of a business, tedious tasks of productivity are a big burden. Employees have to spend hours or sometimes even days preparing reports, monitoring inventory levels, timesheet tracking, and processing the orders when using traditional methods. These methods sometimes even bring down the employee morale and cause frequent human errors, which may also cost heavy to the business. When an employee spends hours entering the same data into different forms, he can make a mistake as it is a human trait.

Microsoft Dynamics ERP

With the use of ERP systems, even the most tedious tasks are automated. With the help of ERP software, the database of information reduces data entry and does the work within minutes with high-level calculations and hence saves a lot of time. This would allow the employees to focus better on productivity and think about other refreshing ideas that may benefit the business. The ERP software can improve productivity, profitability and efficiency.

Satisfied Customers

A business survives to satisfy its customers. The efficiency of the business can be measured by the level of satisfaction of the customers. A satisfied customer is a sign of a successful business. The best way of improving customer satisfaction is to have good customer-centered goods and services. The ERP software is usually equipped with the Customer Relation Management (CRM) tool, which can help analyze the trends and provide advice for having a better relationship with the customers. Here is a comparison between CRM vs ERP

With a well-integrated CRM tool, a business can look at the orders and billing information so that the employees can have a better understanding of the customer needs and the frequent changes in the customers’ needs. This would also help in formulating better strategies.
