You might already know it but there are many reasons to start using ERP. Here are some of them:
Integrated financial information
As the owner tries to understand the company’s overall performance, he may find many different versions of the same story. Finance has its own set of revenue numbers, sales has another version, and the different business units may each have their own version of how much they contributed to revenues. SmartB creates a single version of the truth that cannot be questioned because everyone is using the same system.
Integrated customer order information
SmartB systems can become the place where the customer order lives from the time a customer service representative receives it until the loading dock ships the merchandise and finance sends an invoice. By having this information in one single software system, instead of multiples of many different systems (that can’t communicate with one another), companies can keep track of orders more easily, and coordinate manufacturing, inventory and shipping among many different locations at the same time.
SmartB helps the manufacturing process flow more smoothly, and it improves visibility of the order fulfilment process inside the company. That can lead to reduced inventories of the stuff used to make products (work-in-progress inventory), and it can help users better plan deliveries to customers, reducing the finished good inventory at the warehouses and shipping docks. To really improve the flow of your supply chain, you need supply chain software, but SmartB helps too.
To standardise HR information
Especially in companies with multiple business units, HR may not have a unified, simple method for tracking employees’ time and communicating with them about benefits and services. SmartB can fix that.
