ERP’s (Enterprise Resource Planning) are centralized systems for your business that improve efficiency and connect different departments and increase communication and integrations between them. When selecting the right ERP for your company it is important to have clear goals you want to accomplish and identify any current issues you are looking to resolve. Determining these will allow you to find the best fit for your business and ensure you are getting what you are looking for in a software provider.
ERP systems allow you to see everything going on between various jobs in your business rather than having to look at them individually or broken down by departments. They also provide a means of recording and reporting the performance of employees. ERP’s can identify processes that may be present that are actually counterproductive, which would have otherwise gone unnoticed. Mobility is another boon granted to those who subscribe to cloud-based ERP’s. With live feeds on incoming information, your team can make sales, pull up records, and manage inventory from anywhere that has an internet connection.
All data is recorded instantly and then shared across the network. This saves you the hassle of repeatedly putting in information and gives you a real-time view of your customer’s data. In addition, all your data can be viewed from one source, rather than going through a series of screens hoping to find what you are looking for.
Reporting is made easier too. Pull up the data you need in one place, rather than building it out from multiple systems. Rev Parts Management Software gives you hundreds of customization options as well, allowing you to pull out only the information you are hunting vs. a generalized sheet laying out everything about sales, customers, or orders.
Tired of trying to match your calendar to your employee’s and sync up everything between departments? ERP’s are your answer. Your service department will know exactly who is available for work at any given time, and once appointments or hours are scheduled it is reflected in real-time.
We’ve all had it happen. You go to pull a part and it’s not on the shelf, at least not where it should be. ERP’s help you keep track of each piece that moves through your store, from ordering to delivery. Using Rev Parts Management Software your team can map your entire warehouse so any time a part is scanned your team knows exactly where it should go. Save yourself hours of hunting down parts and the trouble of removing lost items from inventory. ERP also allows you to keep an eye on which parts are moving and which are gathering dust. Knowing this helps you to swap out lines that are not performing and free up capital.
ERP’s grant you a cloud’s eye view of your business. Everything you need to know about is at your fingertips, and data is granted to you in real-time. With such an outlook on your day to day operations, it is easy to identify areas where cost reduction is possible, or how reallocating resources may prove more fruitful. The reduction of operating expenses is one benefit an ERP can provide rather quickly. Identifying the number of hours required for each task and recognizing when it becomes less efficient to add more team members lets you make the most efficient use of employees. Implementing a systemized way of operating improves staff retention rate as well, by increasing productivity and ease of use for daily tasks. On top of all this being able to view inventory turnaround rates and having part movement data lets you choose the best sellers to push and decide which parts are better removed from the shelves so that new ones can be brought in which will garner a larger profit.
