I was doing Electrical and lighting business.The sales were good, because our marketing was efficient, and we had a good Brand. But as you must have heard the Story of Emperor,s new clothes, my situation was similar. Everything looked rosy from outside, but it was not so. I was not focusing on profits and even less on the cash flow my business was generating, because I did not have a good ERP (Enterprise Resources and Planning) system, and the things went from not so good to worse. The company went into a huge loss, and even the new funds which I had brought in later was not enough. If at that time I had given importance to tracking and monitoring the business, using a good ERP software, I would have immediately realised that not everything is smooth sailing and would have immediately anticipated the severe cash flow problems my business will face in the future.The present picture would have been totally different, though we are now taking corrective steps and bouncing back.
Now I have decided that I need to help fellow businessmen by helping them monitoring and tracking their business, so that they do not face the issues I had.
ERP is the mechanism by which you can keep your business on track , speaking in simple terms. The software has different modules like Accounting, Production management, Payroll & H.R, Operations and so on. The modern-day ERP also has a Marketing and CRM(Customer relationship managment) module where you can enter your leads(prospects), process them and get better and faster results.
As mentioned earlier, ERP is a tool which allows you to track and monitor your business. If you are not using ERP software, then for even a small company of say 10 team members, there is a likelihood of not being able to give right information to the customers. Service delivery to the customer is severely handicapped as the people are working in silos, and are not aware of each others business communication and data as there is no single platform like ERP where all the business data, communication is collected ,stored ,accessed, and transferred to departments or persons if there is a need.
If you are manufacturing company then ERP software becomes even more critical as the production of your goods needs to be done efficiently and of defined quality standards and within time. It will be difficult to co-ordinate various activities which are involved in manufacturing from sourcing the raw materials to getting the packed finished goods available for dispatch and sale.
The stage after the packed finished products available for sale, entails activities like Marketing, Sales, Outward logistics which again need the help of ERP.
