About ERP - What is ERP ?

Just another IT industry acronym? Not quite. ERP or Enterprise Resource Planning to give it its full name is the term used to describe the automation of core business functions, including production, accounting, distribution, supply chain and human resources. In other words, it's the use of technology to integrate the information from all your key business functions and smooth its flow around your organization.

Why should you be interested? A well-implemented and appropriate ERP system can create significant efficiencies across your business, resulting in timely business information, better customer relationships, a more cost-effective supply chain, improved internal process and, ultimately, increased profitability.

Think of the different systems across your business at the moment, whether manual or automated. A customer places an order. How often is this order entered into various systems in different departments; from finance to distribution to sales and marketing? Not only is this time consuming, but it also creates the opportunity for errors. Can your finance department quickly query the system in the warehouse to find out if the order has been dispatched and whether to raise an invoice? Can your marketing department rapidly identify those customers who have recently ordered specific product lines in order to better target direct marketing activities?

With an ERP system, the customer order information is entered once and then available throughout the business. Every department is better placed to carry out its task and you have clear and more timely information on which to base critical business decisions.

Choosing the right ERP system for your business needs is vital. The Microsoft Dynamics have been designed to deliver a fully-integrated suite of modules across all key business functions. The solutions can if necessary be tailored and customized to the specific need of any customer in any industry sector.

StarLight Solutions will help to deliver a tailored, optimal ERP solution best suited to your business environment.

About ERP - Do You Need ERP ?

If you are a typical business, you¡¯ll have many different systems across your organization at the moment, manual and automated.
These systems are critical to the business and often they aren¡¯t linked. Think of all the things that must happen when a customer places an order. How often does it happen that an order information is entered into various systems at different departments? The more times it is re-typed or transformed, the more opportunities are there for error.

You may be thinking about your business performance, and have concerns like:

  • How quickly is an invoice raised following the dispatch of an order?
  • Are salaries and bonuses related to sales performance?
  • Are marketing activities targeted to responsive potential markets?
  • Are sales people monitored and measured in line with your business goals?

With an ERP system, all of these things (and many others) can be improved. Every department is better equipped to carry out key tasks; and with visibility across all processes you can obtain clear and timely information on which to base critical business decisions.

If you are convinced, but would like more information, read our Which ERP System? or just Contact us and we can tell you more.


About ERP - Which ERP To Choose ?

This section is designed to give you some pointers and to gather more information, but the selection and installation of an ERP system is not trivial, and the issues involved could be critical to the future of your company. Please do consult us before making any decision.

The following will be essential:

Avoid preconceptions
. You may have been told that ¡®only one system is right¡¯. That may be true, but you may incur substantial additional expense if you issue a request for tender on the basis of one product or system

Establish what you want to achieve. Targets, in terms of efficiency, cost-saving, manpower, or other factors help you to justify investment and help us to understand your priorities

Establish your goals. Your business goals will influence which system will cope with future requirements. (An Asian company with plans to expand into the US may face specific issues which some systems will not cope with easily, for example)

Trust your installation partner. You must trust the company you choose to work with to give you good advice. A quality supplier will help you meet budget targets and give you an informed view of options which may affect your performance later

Anticipate international issues. If you want to install your system across different geographies, you need to ensure that your supplier can support your presence in those countries

Please don¡¯t view this section as a substitute for proper consultancy, Contact us.
