Demand grows for ERP solution

According to a study conducted on ERP solution,corporate growth has been indicated as the most compelling driver for adoption of ERP amongst senior management respondents.

Improved customer service, efficient distribution system, and reduced operation expenses are some of the other important business imperatives that are driving top management to implement ERP solutions. Majority of CEOs/Senior managers share the same view that ERP is an important tool to achieve competitive advantage.

Following are some of the major factors of ERP popularity.

ERP enables improved business performance through cycle time reduction. Cycle time is the time available at each station for the performance of the work allocated or the time elapsing between completed units coming of an assembly line. It also helps in increased business agility, inventory reduction and order fulfillment improvement.

ERP supports business growth requirements through new products/product lines, new customers, global requirements including multiple languages and currencies.

ERP provides flexible, integrated, real-time decision support in improving responsiveness across the organization.

ERP eliminates the limitations of the legacy system such as fragmentation of data and process, inflexibility to change and insupportable technologies.

ERP takes advantage of the untapped mid-market (medium size organizations) through increased functionality at a reasonable cost.

These are some of the reasons for the explosive growth rate of the ERP market. As more and more companies are entering into the market, the ERP solutions providers are facing a competitive market which brings out the best in them.

Initially the huge cost involved in the implementation of ERP solution has kept many medium scale industries away from it. However, with the introduction of affordable ERP solutions like eresource ERP, which is basically intended to serve the small and big layers in the field alike, is bringing good benefit for Indian SMEs. This also contributed to the growth of ERP demand in the Indian market.

ERP and accounting software

Accounting package handles only individual business functions of accounts whereas Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) package handles the entire range of business functions of an organization.

ERP system is a fully integrated business management system covering functional areas of an enterprise like Finance, Human Resources, Production, Sales and Logistics etc. It organizes and integrates operation processes and information flows to make optimum use of resources such as men, material, money and machine. ERP is a tightly integrated closed loop business solution package.

ERP system enhances a manufacturer ability to accurately schedule production, fully utilize capacity, reduce inventory, and meet promised shipping dates.

ERP will not create unemployment

As you are aware that with a successful ERP in place, information will be freely available and any casual user can very easily generate any ad hoc queries or reports. The system will automatically check for the compliance for most of the standard rules. As such, a number of routine work will disappear. However, with the information system in place, many of the middle level managers can be empowered to perform far more interesting analysis, develop insights and suggest innovative schemes for improvement.

Often these are the real benefits of ERP. If an organization is not imaginative enough to empower people to perform such analysis, obviously ERP can be discredited with creating unemployment.

Take a look at the Indian Railway's Computerized Reservation System. With the networked computer terminals, one can manage the issuing of the tickets with fewer staff. However, there are more reservation staff today than ten years back. The average counter hours across the country have increased from 6 hours a day to 12 hours per day. Now a person can make reservations from any place to any place from any one of the terminals, significantly improving service quality.

In a way Railway Reservation System may have taken away a few jobs involving certain categories but created many more jobs. In all such cases looking at the head count may be an incorrect way to approach the problem. The goal must be to provide better quality service and better quality of jobs.

ERP software is not a magic wand

Understand it before implementing

THE purpose of ERP technology is to support the business processes that support the company's trategic opportunities.There are some basic tenets of ERP that should guide management's actions and decisions.

There is no magic in ERP software. ERP's benefits are a direct result of effective preparation and implementation, and appropriate use. This seems obvious, but most of the organizations don't get it right the first time around. Expecting a quick fix, silver-bullet solution is a dangerous mindset.

Another matter is no amount of advanced information technology can offset the problem of a flawed business strategy and poorly performing business processes. This area, in particular, is something that ERP software implementers may not fully address because it can slow system deployment.

The companies must define a business strategy that will give them a competitive advantage or, at the very least, make them competitively equal. Then, analyze your current business processes and develop objectives. Once this step is done, the following steps for preparation, ERP software selection and implementation can support the strategic and process objectives better.

Acquire flexible ERP information technology that can accommodate rapidly changing business conditions. The high-velocity flow of information needed to support action up and down the supply chain is a major step forward for most manufacturers. It will be mandatory in the future just to compete, much less stay ahead of, the competition.

You must have the implementation led by a senior executive who has the authority to make changes happen and happen quickly. Make sure there is a sense of urgency and true accountability for completing preparation and implementation activities on time. Moving away from functional silos and creating effective cross-functional processes that are truly integrated via an ERP system is not an easy task. When ERP is not fully integrated into day-to-day business operations, however, it is not likely to be very beneficial.

If enterprise integration or more advanced supply chain management strategies are to have any chance of complete success it will be due, to a large extent, to the removal of traditional cross-functional barriers. These silos comprise the organizational boundaries where information flow and often cooperation, stop. You must ask, "How will we use the ERP system?" Some not-so-obvious issues will surface as you try to answer that question.

For example, will you combine demand-based flow and lean manufacturing techniques, which will negate the need for some traditional ERP functionality? Focus on your business strategy and not just software selection and implementation. Many problems are reinforced by contradictory objectives and performance measures that actually create inconsistent value and belief systems, to the company's detriment. No amount of information technology will correct these problems. Management must aggressively remove them once and for all through business process redesign.

HR module in ERP can accelerate business growth

HR management is an essential factor

UNTIL recently the people involved in human resource work were usually called personnel managers.Their duties normally centered on staffing activities such as hiring, keeping employment records, attending to minor medical benefit problems and organizing company teams and outings.

Since then, dramatic changes have occurred in our society and in the make-up of the workforce. No longer can companies afford to look at people as commodity to be exploited to exhaustion and then discarded. In today's organizations employees are viewed as human resources that need to be carefully nurtured, accommodated and developed.

Human resources management is an essential factor of any successful business. The competitive environment of the next millennium, with its economic and technological challenges, will affect your HR department like all other areas of your enterprises. In short, HR managers must continually review and optimize their business process.

The HR modules of eresource ERP system have a set of rich features and will integrate seamlessly with the other modules and are thus, invaluable aids in improving productivity. They offer company-wide solutions for HR departments and make it possible for other departments to access specific employee data.

A human resource management system has to be adaptable to company specific requirements as well as to constantly growing HR requirements. It should cover all the functions required in business practices and be flexible enough to allow you to optimize your business processes by tailoring the ERP solution to suit your organization's needs. Today, businesses cross boundaries and spread across different part of the globe. The system should support the organization's international needs with country specific versions of the HR components.

Currencies, legal requirements and accounting systems often vary from country to country as well, making this a vital feature. A flexible structure enables quick and easy customization on the system to suit your requirements. When you log-on from any part of this world, you must have access to the system's complete functionality.

Here are some of the most common sub-systems available in eresource ERP's HR module. The list is to give an idea about some options available. (The list is not comprehensive).

Personal management (HR master-data, personnel administration, information systems, recruitment, travel management, benefits administration, salary administration)

Payroll accounting (gross/net accounting, history function, multi-currency capability, international solutions)

Time management (shift planning, work schedules, time recording, absence determination)

Midsize companies and ERP

To cope with business challenges, midsize companies looking at ERP


IN this age of mergers and acquisitions, many organizations which were once small companies, and now, (http://www.eresourceerp.com/midsize-companies-and-ERP.html) as midmarket organizations, need to consolidate various software systems and standardize business processes.

Currently, most of the ERP action is happening in the midmarket. More and more midsize companies - which are rather broadly defined as organizations are looking to replace outdated ERP systems or jump into the technology for the first time.

Most companies in this space are coping with increasingly complex operating environments, aging technology - including outmoded ERP systems - proliferating business-management software and, of course, the need to grow revenue.

Midsize companies also face challenges specific to their industries. Businesses that make consumer product goods are concerned about regulations and reporting requirements, while public-sector organizations are worried about maintaining customer loyalty. Also, manufacturers are concerned about the commoditization of their products. A robust ERP package can help address these issues, as well.

As per a survey conducted last year, which surveyed more than 500 organizations from a variety of industries, it was found that very few midsize companies - just 6 percent - don't already have an ERP or MRP (Material Requirements Planning, the precursor to ERP) implementation. For those businesses, the reasons to take a leap into ERP, which is largely considered necessary infrastructure for midsize companies, are many and compelling.

It was found that many ERP implementations in the midmarket are quite mature and ripe for replacement. Most of today's midmarket organizations had ERP systems older than 10 years old. ERP technology has evolved significantly in the years since these systems were deployed, so many of these organizations have developed their own applications to make up for inadequacies.

Many midmarket companies must now also choose an ERP system on which to standardize after multiple systems were installed, perhaps through mergers, across the enterprise.

It has been noticed that many midsize companies had two or more ERP packages, and some have implemented three or more ERP systems. Although it's not necessary, midsize companies seem to prefer consolidating their business-management applications in one ERP package, at least in part to cut down on integration headaches.

With the advent of Eresource ERP system, midsize organizations in India were able to find a suitable ERP solution to match their needs.

eresource ERP's major strength lies in the manufacturing modules that provide multiple benefits for small and midsize organizations. eresource ERP helps the organizations control their day-to-day business. Needless to say, once implemented, eresource ERP will be the heart of your business, wheels of your distribution channel and the brain of your planning activities.

Other added feature about eresource ERP system is its on-time guaranteed implementation programme. Eresource offers a full refund for any implementation fees where the agreed-upon ERP go live date is delayed, provided the customer meets all defined milestone deliverables on time.

Construction industry to benefit a lot from ERP

ONE of the biggest challenges for any construction company is in estimating cost of construction, which in turn helps it in containing overheads and expenses. Since the projects are usually spread over many years, aligning the projected cost with the actual cost becomes difficult. The challenge becomes manifold given that most companies deal with large project and huge volumes.

For example, one of the major construction companies in India was also facing the same challenge. For this company, at any given time there would be at least 50-60 construction projects running concurrently. The departments were maintaining the data in different files using different Excel charts. The accounts department was maintaining a separate software package but materials and purchase was not linked to these. Moreover, much of this data was lying in site offices, which was not connected to the head office.

Whenever there was an enquiry, each department would have to pull out the information and consolidate it for the report. The entire process of collecting and collating information from various departments was being done manually. This not only slowed down the decision-making process but also create power centers within the company. This made it very difficult to do real-time cost estimation of different projects.

eresource implemented an effective ERP system within a short period after the company approached with the demand for a suitable ERP solution which would connect all functions and projects to a centrally maintained database system.

In the first phase eresource implemented several modules such as financial, material management, marketing, project planning and control and so on. The solution was customized to meet the needs of a large construction company. For instance there is a module on the bill of quality that helps in project cost estimation, by breaking down each project into activities. Each activity is then broken down into till of materials of material, labour and equipment. Another module helps in material requirement planning on the basis of the work projection of a particular month/week.

The marketing module enables the company to send information to all its customers from its database whenever they launched a new project. The module also helped the company track all the pre-sale and sale activity, right from the time a customer posts a query to the closure of the sale. The module helps to take care of the company's all marketing. It has made the planning and forecasting of demand extremely easy. It also creates ripple effects in the company where all departments like purchase, materials and stores now get aligned with the forecasts.
