Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is the hot topic!
Imagine that you need to manage a company, with this task comes some important demands: how am I going to make payments, or know that we are paying for the right products? How many products do we need to buy for the next month to avoid running out of stock? What is the best way to make deliveries or schedule my internal logistics? What are the tasks that involve paying my employees? By the way, do my employees have all the resources to optimize their time and do the best work possible?
Anyway, the corporate world is made up of questions like this, and you need to make hundreds of decisions daily, but we are not always so aware of all these infinite variables. Now imagine managing so much information crossed in spreadsheets or without the possibility of analyzing everything carefully to reach the best conclusions. For this,ERP was developed in the 70s, and since then the software that plays this role has become essential in the daily lives of corporations and in the daily lives of users.
Today our focus is on the end user!
Normally, ERP's, as well as SAP S/4HANA (our ERP model from the skies), are divided into modules, as they are more adaptable to the needs of each sector or department. Thus, we have specific modules for the areas of finance, purchasing, inventory, sales, logistics and so on. Knowing this, where do employees come in? IN ALL OF THEM!
People are the key to a successful business, and knowing that, good management depends on your ability to make the work of your employees more fluid and efficient, offering the best resources and, above all, the best possible vision for them to perform. a work of excellence. It would not be possible to ask a painter to develop a beautiful work of art without good brushes. In the corporate environment it is exactly the same issue, obsolete ERP's affect the productivity of employees as they increase manual tasks, spending time that could be focused on strategic activities and aimed at the company's goals.
In addition, we have already said here that the lack of innovation can leave your company vulnerable, the security of your information can be at risk since employees make use of them daily, and they can use third-party and unauthorized applications to make their daily lives more easy - see more on the subject at this link.
And do you want to know the bomb of the day? A study conducted by the University of California made our conversation even more interesting. The research found that a happy worker is, on average, 31% more productive, three times more creative, and sells 37% more compared to others. In addition, he ends up motivated to better serve the customer, avoid accidents at work and reduce waste. And yes, the quality of the work tools available, such as efficient and modern ERP's, greatly affect the quality of life of your corporation's employees.
