Many people didn’t get into business to run a business, they wanted to be the best at what they do or create a solution to meet a demand.
Starting out with a basic accounts package, the business owner soon finds they are dealing with HR duties as well, especially with ever changing and growing legislation.
If the company is successful, they soon find themselves using multiple software packages and excel spreadsheets to manage relationships with customers and suppliers, stock, orders, purchasing and contracts. In parts of the manufacturing industry over 40% of customers are still managing key areas of their business on spreadsheets. This is time consuming, difficult to manage, collaborate and produce time critical business reports, and leaves more room for error.
There is a solution. Because these businesses are specialist in their own fields, they don’t always know the jargon or acronyms used in the IT industry, and so they search for terms such as ‘manufacturing software’, ‘construction software’, ‘stock control software’ , etc. In IT these software packages are commonly known as ERP packages or ERP solutions. It stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. In manufacturing they are also known as MRP packages which stands for Manufacturing Resource Planning, and they tend to have specific modules that provide essential functionality to the manufacturing industry.
