Since its inception in the 1960s, 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.
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, marketing and more. 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.
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-premise, it streamlines business processes and improves collaboration for organisations 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. They may want to scale up their business management solution as the holiday season approaches and add additional 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.
