More and more companies are considering the use of technology to optimize the efficiency of their business. The implementation of an Enterprise Resource Planning System (ERP) is really essential. It is necessary to consider several internal factors of the company and analyse the benefits that the software can actually bring to the organization. The need to implement an ERP system most often arises when the situation in the company gets out of hand, either in terms of difficult access to information or due to a lack of integration between departments.   

The main objectives of a company implementing an ERP solution are:  

  • digitization and modernization of the company, with the possibility of becoming more and more connected with its customers and partners;  
  • automation of manual and repetitive processes;  
  • cost saving through infrastructure and reduction of unnecessary manpower;  
  • improving cooperation between various company departments;  
  • improving the accessibility of company data and enabling new work formats; 
  • ensuring safety in everyday work;  
  • improving decision-making process by managers and directors through higher data quality and reliability.  

By standardizing the data, which is then documented in the system, the use of the ERP system has the following advantages

  • quality and reliability of information;   
  • agility in processes and increased speed in completing tasks;  
  • standardization of operational procedures; 
  • optimization of information flow;  
  • Improved employee productivity.  

The selection of ERP systems is not easy as it seems, because there are many providers on the market and not every system suits every company. Plentymarkets, the common ERP solution in Germany, has been popular for a long time and has already gained the trust of many entrepreneurs. The fairly new ERP solution Weclapp is also rapidly becoming popular on the market and can be considered as a good alternative to Plentymarkets.
