Making the most of your ERP investment
Is having multiple software solutions preventing you from going above and beyond for your company and customers?
Having an evaluation performed is key in answering that question—and Momentis is here to investigate and discuss everything from your internal processes, to workflows, to system usage. Driven by curiosity, our goal is to improve; we believe our customers are on the same mission.
It’s important to understand what an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is. An ERP system integrates the entire functioning of an organization to make it work as a unit; an all-in-one package. You may have software modules that only address specific areas of your business. While these separate modules may appear as a valid return on an investment, automating the entire flow will create more cohesive, efficient processes. Integrating all areas of your business frees up your best people to add more value to business functions. To learn more, please see our article on The Pros and Cons of a Single ERP system vs Multiple Software Solutions.
How do you get started? This worthwhile journey begins with both your ERP provider and your key personnel working in collaboration. Together—with open minds—all business processes need to be reviewed to innovate old processes, challenge the status quo, discuss new ideas, and share information related to best practices, upcoming challenges and solution designs.
Consider this critical thinking as an audit process of three system workflows: existing, nice-to-haves, and must-haves. Companies who both successfully utilize and benefit from their ERP investment allocate time and resources each year as part of their budgeting process to ensure areas of improvement are also being discussed.
Of course, to properly benefit from your ERP investment—and to see a real ROI—your employees must actually use it. If manual deviations from proper workflows occurred over time, then these manual external resource-dependant solutions may have become a staple of your process. It’s crucial that these areas be addressed during review; doing so will save costs, reduce dependencies, and increase accuracy.
Whether a specific area requires attention or a complete system review is needed, we look forward to ensuring that you benefit from your ERP for years to come. At Momentis, we are continually working on new features and adding functionality to existing modules to meet the demands of our customers and marketplace. These improvements allow our customers and our products to be more effective with establishing streamlined processing and efficiencies.
Here are just a few examples of the areas being discussed and developed:
- Business Intelligence dashboards and reporting
- E-commerce processing
- Warehouse processing
- Sourcing and supply chain improvements
- B2B sales and customer mobile applications
- Overall E-commerce fulfillment processing
- EDI Automation and EDI direct to consumer processing
As our customers and their customers expect more, we are constantly striving to meet their demands. Keep in touch with us on our LinkedIn page or at www.momentis.com for updates. We look forward to hearing from you!
