ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. ERP is a type of management software for rapidly growing, medium, and large businesses, as well as enterprises.
In rapidly growing and larger companies, managers often can’t see what’s happening in every area of their business. They may, for example, not know how much inventory their business has and requires at any one moment in time. Ideally, the right ERP software or enterprise accounting software should help managers solve these types of problems.
The integration of various pieces of software into one system or solution means business owners and managers can see what’s happening in every area, including administration and operational functions, financial, HR, procurement, manufacturing, warehousing, sales and marketing, customer service, and more.
