In the age of digital transformation, one thing is becoming increasingly evident; companies relying on disparate systems to manage their business processes are at a clear disadvantage. But, determining which unified suite of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tools is best suited for your organization can be a challenge. Partnering with an experienced ERP Consulting Services provider can make sure your ERP implementation is on-time and on-budget.

What is ERP Consulting?

ERP Consulting is a broad term that includes the suite of services designed to assist organizations in meeting the ever-changing demands of today’s business. ERP Consulting Services go beyond system implementation and are focused on meeting the needs of the business and creating a successful user adoption experience. An ERP consultant is primarily responsible for transitioning an organization from existing systems and processes over to the new ERP platform, without impacting day to day business operations. They are equipped to help unearth inefficiencies and bottlenecks and provide innovative problem-solving techniques.

Two of the Most Common ERP Platforms

An ERP software solution goes beyond the debits and credits of traditional accounting. It should act as the backbone or lifeblood of an organization, and be responsible for managing all people and processes surrounding accounting, finance, project management, inventory processing, and supply chain operations. Two of the most popular ERP systems are Microsoft Dynamics 365 and NetSuite ERP.

  5. Talent
  6. AI-Driven Insight
  7. Business Central 
  8. Mixed Reality

Business Benefits of an ERP System

The biggest benefit of ERP is that it functions as a unified, integrated system built to handle all core business processes. It is a single source of truth for all your data. Through ERP integration, you get improved visibility into almost every area of your organization. With this increased visibility you’re more easily able to recognize opportunities for improved productivity, increased efficiency, and cost-reduction. An ERP system implementation provides: 

  • Greater controls over security and governance
  • A consistent, modern, user experience to manage workflows and business processes
  • Access to cross-functional reporting and detailed analysis
  • Clarity into all processes, from summary-level data down to transactional details
  • Visibility into  the entire customer journey  — from initial engagement, to purchase, through to customer support needs
