ERP 101: Let's get started

Genesis Business Systems Blog

If you are about to start your ERP journey (or you know someone who is looking to take the plunge), then this email is for you. If you’re NOT new to ERP then get back to work – you probably don’t need to read this.

As we are all about making things easy we’ve brought together a series of blogs from our ERP partner, Greentree.  It features questions most software companies assume you know the answers to but as we all know, assumptions are dangerous. So, at the risk of telling you the obvious, we’re starting with some ERP basics.


What is ERP?

E.R.P. Enterprise Resource Planning. That’s what the letters stand for but what does it really mean? And how does it apply to you and your business?

We explore the origins of ERP, how it is evolving and why it has become one of the leading business management software tools for organisations that manage complex, growing businesses.

Things you need to know about ERP

We asked Greentree’s Channel Sales Director, Graham Hill to identify what companies typically want to know before they start their ERP buyer journey. Most people are interested in answers to questions such as:

  • Am I big enough to need ERP?
  • How much will I need to spend?
  • What’s the ROI?
  • How long does it take to get started?

The answers are here >


Do you need ERP?
What will it take to get you started? Our ERP partner Greentree explores seven business issues that typically signal your business would benefit from an ERP solution. You may be surprised to learn that most of them don’t relate to the size of your business, its turnover or staff numbers. Still wondering if it’s for you? Why not see how many boxes you tick >

By now you should have a much better understanding of the 'what' and the 'why'; if you’ve read this and want to take your ERP journey further let us help you take care of the 'how'.
