ERP SOS – Lack of Time hindering Strategy and Growth


Every company leader has goals for the future, and the right ERP system can be the difference between meeting those goals consistently or constantly playing catch-up.


Our economic system engenders corporate growth. It’s essential for achieving and maintaining a competitive edge, increasing market value and sustaining investment capital and resources. But, hitting a steady, manageable growth trajectory isn’t just dependent on economies of scale and revenue generation – it’s about being sufficiently well positioned to identify opportunities and strengthen business performance in line with a sound business growth strategy.

Boost Growth

The role of the consumers is increasingly relevant, as they are becoming major players who determine the new standards and rules of play. Businesses that anticipate the customer demands early on and translate them into processes, products, and services will dominate the competition. This calls for flexible and scalable IT and production infrastructures that allow an effective integration and analysis of data and enable a fast adaptation to changes in demand.


Build Smarter Processes

The strength of many businesses is their product leadership. Today, however, product leadership implies more than just a product. It also means mastering the processes supporting the product making it important to find productive solutions. One goal must be the communication between existing systems, equipment, and machines; for example, the transfer of data from production systems to the ERP as input for analysis and management tools. Predictive maintenance and robotics are additional ways to make processes smarter. The intelligent organization of your operations opens up new optimization opportunities for your business. This step becomes even more relevant as the industry feels the pressure from rising costs, regulations, changing consumer behaviour, and fierce competition.


Make Faster Decisions

Today’s business is all about data. In the daily endeavour to make the best decisions, using the right metrics will be your best weapon. The ERP is vital to speed up the decision processes. It helps to accelerate the processes and workflows while providing quick access to information. Functions like smart production scheduling, reporting on defined KPIs, information from finance and controlling, or the optimization of inventory management are at the top of the list of most companies.


Enhance Resilience and the Ability to React

Efficient management processes, flexibility and seamless supply chain processes have tremendously gained importance recently. Solutions for more resilience and planning stability have become a must where its key to remain adaptable to unexpected events and market fluctuations. Intelligent sales planning helps to establish forecasts, taking into account available storage capacities and the shelf life of products. Software-aided inventory optimization facilitates the balancing of low stocks and optimum supply capability. In short, the full digital support of the value chain from processing to distribution ensures maximum flexibility of the production chain – and improves resilience.


In the dynamic, often challenging landscape of the trading industry, leveraging advanced tools like ERP systems can make a substantial difference in your profitability. As competition intensifies and the market continues to evolve, the question isn’t whether you can afford to implement an ERP system, but whether you can afford not to.
