Why implement ERP?

 ERP enables teams to efficiently manage and collaborate on project information. ERP offers a central repository of information about services, products, vendors, retailers, company financials, suppliers, customer orders - and more. It enables managers to make more informed decisions and improve efficiency across the entire business.

Why Sage Business Cloud?

Unlike typical ERP solutions that often rely on the integration of add-on programs, Enterprise Management is ready for use in many industries. These include distribution, wholesale, retail, manufacturing, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, high-tech and services. It's also more affordable, intuitive and scalable than ERP. 

A short history of ERP software

The research and advisory firm Gartner is credited with coming up with the term ERP in a seminal 1990 white-paper A Vision of Next Generation MRP II. However, it’s possible to trace the roots of the concept of ERP to the 1960s.

In the 1970s and 80s, software engineers developed these rudimentary systems so they could manage manufacturing and other business processes. These systems became known as Material Requirements Planning (MRP) and later Manufacturing Resource Planning or (MRP II).

By 1990, it was possible to use an MRP system, or ERP, to manage inventory and other operational processes as well as for managing back-office functions like human resources.

In the early 2000s, Gartner declared what we knew then as ERP was dead and that “ERP II” was the future.

This future comprised web-based software with real-time access to business-critical information. “ERP II” expanded to encompass business intelligence (BI) alongside front-office like sales force automation (SFA), marketing automation and even e-commerce.

During the past ten years, software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions or cloud computing has fueled the growth of ERP and transformed it into a more affordable and easier to implement software.

Modern ERP software enables real-time reporting business intelligence and should serve as a valuable tool for executives, managers and leaders who need to see what’s going on across their businesses.

Although the acronym ERP refers to large businesses, medium-sized and rapidly growing companies today turn to ERP software today when they’ve outgrown their accounting solution, and they need help with key business processes. 

What is an example of an ERP system?

Although cloud ERP solutions are popular today, a significant amount of organizations opt for on-premise solutions to meet specific business requirements. Sage Business Cloud offers everything traditional ERP can do and a lot more. It's also more affordable, intuitive and scalable. 

How does ERP software work?

Enterprise resource planning software works by bringing together information from across a business including: sales, marketing, production, procurement, production and more. This information is stored in a shared database that employees in different business units can work on securely from anywhere.
