Enterprise resource planning is essential for many businesses and here at Minerva we understand a business’ needs and requirements in this field and other areas of business management. In this post we will cover how software specifically aimed to help enterprise resource planning can help your business.

What is Enterprise Resource Planning?

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) refers to the process of managing many different integral internal and external business tasks through software. This includes such tasks as procurement, accounting, logistics and project management to name a few.

By managing all these tasks and many more through one software platform it enables the users to share the data across all areas and avoids the risk of data duplication and prevents data integrity being weakened.

This isn’t just for large enterprise business; many small businesses also make use of these platforms as they can enhance your current business performance and help companies to grow.

In fact, according to a study conducted by LBSI, SMBs choose ERP systems over standalone platforms as it can help standardise back-office operations by 77%, minimises overall operation expenses by 11% and provides real-time visibility into data and insights by 48%.

IT Computer Weekly’s annual survey back in 2018 found that around 53% of businesses asked stated that they see ERP software along with CRMs as a top priority investment.

The ERP industry is growing every year and between 2017 and 2022, the global market is predicted to gain $47 billion in revenue. This shows how important this type of software is to a lot of companies.
