Make ERP Your Roadmap to Success Implement an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to drive business in the right direction. You don’t treat your business like a leisurely Sunday drive, wandering around town with no real destination in mind. You have strategic goals and need a roadmap to take your business to where it belongs. Your business isn’t going to be successful all by itself. In order to be successful you need to be able to capture critical business data, monitor business activities in real time, then use your data to make improvements where necessary. You can’t have this level of control or insight into business data by using hand-crafted spreadsheets, databases, or inadequate business software. You need a more sophisticated business management solution such as Sage 100 ERP. One business management solution is much easier for your people to learn and use than several specialty programs. Connect your people and processes with a single, easy-to-use ERP solution such as Sage 100 ERP. This solution integrates all of the moving parts of your business including finances, manufacturing and distribution activities, inventory and supply chain, as well as human resources and payroll. Your people enter your core business data and Sage 100 ERP can put it into context that you can use. The Business Insights and Alerts features can put the key data you need to have at your fingertips. You can monitor inventory levels or sales figures in real time, for example. Identify what products your customers are buying and which aren’t quite as popular. You can also identify trends in regional sales, seasonal sales, or even sales by department or individual representative. You can also use the business intelligence features in Sage 100 ERP and your trending data to create meaningful, attainable strategic goals. Once you know where your business needs to be, you can use Sage 100 ERP to monitor your real-time business data to make sure that you are on the right track toward achieving those goals. Adjust marketing campaigns, improve product quality, or make other business improvements that support your goals. Don’t be a passenger watching the scenery go by, be the driver of your business.
