ERP – Enterprise Resource Planning
When we talk about ERP – Enterprise Resource Planning -, we rarely think about how to spend resources. Rather, we think of a company’s vision of business, in other words, the company and all components viewed as a unitary whole and not as isolated segments of business. On the one hand, the ERP system refers to the software infrastructure that ensures the internal cohesion of the company; on the other hand, it supports the external business processes in which the company is involved.
ERP applications are designed for business processes.
ERP applications are modular.
ERP applications are integrated. They allow the company to expand beyond its physical limits: to suppliers, customers and partners.
The complete ERP package will be intended for all (or most) elements of the company’s business functions.
