What is ERP?

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is a business management solution that brings together all of your process operations. By fully automating your financial processes, streamlining your supply chain and managing your operations, you can improve efficiency and encourage growth, whatever the size of your business.

ERP is nothing new in the world of business technology but it’s surprising just how few business people really understand what it is, how it works and the benefits it can bring to their business.

Small and midsized business (SMB) owners may feel that they are not ready for ERP yet, but Microsoft have been helping more and more SMBs think big. The right ERP system can bring together the once disparate processes of financial management, production, supply chain, human resources, sales & marketing, project management, and powerful reporting (business intelligence) to help reduce costs and increase efficiency.
