Business systems you should consider
Although each business will require a unique implementation, you should consider the following systems:
- Customer Relationship Management (CRM) to manage communications with customers and your sales/support teams
- Services Resource Planning (SRP) to manage business resource allocation, project management & job costings
- Human Capital Management (HCM) to manage your H.R. tasks from payroll to reviews
- E-commerce & Retail Management to integrate your online presence with your warehousing and finance systems
- Financial Management to ensure you maintain fiscal reporting standards and empower you to make data driven business decisions
- Inventory & Manufacturing Management to maintain inventory accuracy and forecast lead times and raw material requirements.
Business data flow
We start by looking at how each department functions, if they leverage digital technology or manual processes to conduct daily business tasks. Understanding how each department relies on business data, provides the required foundational knowledge to build an all encompassing business system that is cohesive inter-departmentally.
Strategic implementation & transition plan
We understand the importance of avoiding business interruptions; therefore, ensure that when doing a complete business systems overhaul we strategically transition into the new system. This provides ample time to train staff and make accompanying operational changes to ensure you are leveraging the full potential of the new system. Furthermore, this provides a level of redundancy as we design a period of double data entry to ensure system accuracy.
Some common system questions...
When starting up its easy to accidentally have your business rely on a number of systems to run. With many of these systems now being could based it is possible to ‘connect’ many of them. For some businesses, this is all they will require; however, businesses that are expecting to experience further growth might benefit for implementing a more scalable solution such as a full ERP suite.
Many software providers have built their business system solutions in a modular fashion to allow them to market to a broad audience. This provides benefits and drawbacks for the customers however, as it can make it complex to understand what modules your business will require and in what order to implement them.
Some business may only need an off the shelf business system to manage their day-to-day tasks more efficiently. Not all businesses will benefit from a customized enterprise resource planning suite; however, often the more complex the business, the more likely they will see an ROI from having increased business visibility.
