What is Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

What is Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

To put it as simply as possible, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System increases the efficiency of a company. It ties multiple wings of a business in one complete system and streamlines the processes and information among the staff. Enterprise Resource Planning, or ERP system, integrates the data from the different parts of a company into one database and makes it possible to monitor every aspect of the business easily as well as supply the employees with accurate information and resources. Companies, small and large, are incorporating Enterprise Resource Planning in their organization structures to great effect.

Then and Now

With the advent of cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning systems, ERP is now far less expensive and way more affordable. It can be said without a doubt that a wide range of industries can use an ERP system to enhance performance and production. It does not only integrate data from multiple sources but also works in favor of Business Intelligence.

The platform for Enterprise Resource Planning was set way back in the past by the incorporation of MRP, or Material Requirements Planning. This was a system that was used to monitor inventory and to schedule production processes. Today, Enterprise Resource Planning systems cover Business Intelligence and Analytics as well as front office operations like sales force automation, marketing automation, and eCommerce. The use of Cloud ERP in Singapore has, too, become more prevalent across different industries.

How Does It Help Productivity and Profitability?

There are three basic changes that ERP can bring in a big or growing company; all these definitely work toward the betterment of productivity. Let us look into those areas.

  • A large-scale or fast-growing business with 70+ employees deals with innumerable processes, several workflows, and endless activities. There always remains a high chance of losing track of a part of it or the whole function due to a lack of a log that integrates all the information and tracks every single activity and measures every bit of progress. Enterprise Resource Planning systems fill this gap. This means no loose ends and hence, consistent productivity.
  • It is often hard to maintain information accuracy and the consistency of interpretation across the departments and sections of a company. Enterprise Resource Planning solves this problem to a great extent by streamlining all the activities and acting as the single source of definitive information for the whole company.
  • It frees employees from the constant liability of keeping track of their own as well as their subordinates’ activities. This saves crucial workable time and helps the employees to focus on the job rather than its accurate documentation.

These benefits give us a clear enough impression that an Enterprise Resource Planning system can be a strong helping hand to any industry for the problems it solves, are more or less the same across different industries.

In a Nutshell, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems:

  • Provide a holistic view of data that empowers a company with insight and the ability to proactively overcome business challenges
  • Automates a lot of basic business operations like lead-to-cash and procure-to-pay.
  • Makes it easy to track relationship with consumers and enhance customer service.

It is now apparent why it was predicted that the use of ERP would increase at an annual rate of 21%. ERP continues to gain popularity in industries ranging from Marine Engineering to Rental Services while covering industries like Construction, Healthcare, Trading and Distribution, Manufacturing and more.

Synergix Technologies' ERP system Synergix E1 has been a great help to all our business needs. The various complex customizations made it very difficult for any ERP vendors to meet our criteria as to integrate with call center, operation team and production plant was not easily done. However, Synergix was not only willing to take up such a task but performed to our expectations.

We would also like to commend the services provided by Synergix Technologies. Despite the initial rollout hiccups, their response time was good and their project manager was very committed in helping to solve all issues and finally ensuring our successful live run since 2012. Today our drivers are trained and equipped with Android mobile device for order fulfillment and linked up with our customer service department. With the web-based technologies, all our 3 office locations are linked up via Synergix E1 ERP.

In situations where we require additional help, their helpdesk is able to solve our problems within a reasonable timeframe and minimize any downtime disruption in our business.

We will recommend any company that requires an ERP system to consider Synergix Technologies' Synergix E1 ERP Software.

As a company that caters to waste management, we have a complex rental calculation and different types of billing frequency and methods. When our business expands and our transaction volume grows, our manual billing system starts to give us problems as we cannot send our bill on time. That’s mainly why we decided to tap into software automation.

We evaluate a few software and decided to implement Synergix E1 ERP Software. The main reason being Synergix Technologies provides customisation services to solve our complex billing requirements which are not available in standard ERP systems.

Synergix E1 Enterprise Resource Planning Software helps us with contract management, waste collection management, resources management, and basically our over-all business operations including sales, procurement and finance.

The consultants have been very reliable and responsive in helping us right from the pre-sales, the implementation processes and live run. Up until today, Synergix provides us with timely helpdesk support.

We would recommend Synergix E1 ERP System to any recycling or waste management companies who are looking for a fully-integrated solution to automate business processes to help improve productivity.
