Let's understand the word ERP
What is ERP and How Does it Work?
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is like a digital superhero that brings all parts of your business together. It’s a software that helps you manage things like money, people, stuff, and customers all in one place. This magic happens because ERP collects information from different parts of your company and puts it in a single hub. This way, everyone knows what’s happening, and making decisions becomes much easier.
The 5 Components of ERP:
- People Power: ERP helps you handle your team, from paying them to checking how well they’re working.
- Money Matters: It keeps track of your cash, who you owe, who owes you, and helps you plan your money better.
- Stuff Management: ERP takes care of your stuff – from what’s in stock to when you need more.
- Happy Customers: With ERP, you can keep track of your customers, know what they need, and give them better service.
- Making Stuff: For businesses that create things, ERP helps with planning, schedules, and making sure things are perfect.
The 3 Common Types of ERP:
- Home Team ERP: You set up and run the software on your own computers.
- Cloud Wizard ERP: It lives on the internet, so you can use it anywhere without the tech hassle.
- Mix-and-Match ERP: You choose what works best – some on your own computers, some on the internet.
