ERP business management systems and software to help you gain oversight

You'll be able to make informed decisions about your business, including finance, HR and more.

Instead of relying on old and unreliable ERP, you need a powerful, flexible business management solution

Bring different parts of your business together in one place and gain a comprehensive view of your operations.

Since its inception in the 1960's, the concept of ERP has evolved from a tool for materials to a solution for managing every area of your business.

However, today ERP doesn’t encompass what growing businesses need. Often, when a customer adopts ERP, they struggle to get support or find fixes for bugs. Similarly, it can take years for a business to generate a return-on-investment on a traditional ERP system, and these solutions are difficult to adapt.

What is a business software suite ?

A business software suite is a comprehensive set of applications or products for managing every area of a business. These areas typically include : people, finances, operations, customer information, sales, and marketing. This type of software is also known as ERP or enterprise resource planning software. Sage Business Cloud is an example of a modern business software suite or solution.

Unlike old and expensive ERP software, a business management solution :

  • Reduces the costs of implementing and maintaining your software
  • Enables reviewing of critical business information in real-time
  • Adapts to your changing business requirements
  • Offers you and your team a modern and intuitive user experience
  • Simplifies every part of your operation and helps reduce costs
  • Helps you and your management team focus on growing your business

The difference between business management and ERP software

Business management software is a more robust solution that can accomplish more than what ERP is capable of. Whether based in the cloud or on-premises, it streamlines business processes and improves collaboration for organizations operating in multiple countries or that collaborate across the supply chain. Business management can solve the problems typically associated with ERP, like being difficult and expensive to implement and use. It also supports multiple languages, currencies, companies, sites and legislations, and enables individual divisions or countries to follow business rules while sharing information. Lastly, the solution is flexible with the ability to scale when necessary. For example, consider a manager of a distribution company ; he or she may want to scale up the business management solution as the holiday season approaches and add more users based in the businesses' warehouses. After the holiday season when demand goes down this manager can scale down their business management solution and remove users.

Spend more time focusing on higher value activities

Use real-time analytics to identify the areas of your business that yield the greatest returns. Accomplish more with a business management software that streamlines business processes and improves collaboration across the supply chain.

Adapt to changes in the marketplace faster

Adopt a proactive, informed approach to solving critical business issues based on real-time insights into your inventory and financials. Operate teams across multiple countries, supporting multiple languages, currencies, companies, sites and legislations.
