What is an ERP?
Enterprise resource planning also famously abbreviated as ERP is a business management software usually a suite/collection of integrated applications that a company can use to collect, store, manage data from many business activities at the same time, including:-
- Finance and Accounting
- Purchases and Procurement
- Sales and Marketing
- Product planning, cost and development
- Manufacturing or service delivery
- Inventory management
- Shipping and payment
ERP provides an integrated view of core business processes, often in real-time, using common a common database. ERP systems track business resources—cash, raw materials, production capacity—and the status of business commitments: orders, purchase orders, and payroll. The applications that make up the system share data across the various departments (accounting, finance, manufacturing, purchasing, sales, etc.). ERP facilitates information flow between all business functions, and manages connections to outside stakeholders.
