The 5 Ways Your Current ERP is Hurting Your Business

Your current ERP solution could be hurting your company more than you know. So in order to help shed some light on what you should be looking for in a new solution, let’s take a look at 5 things that your system should give you.

Ease of use

It shouldn’t be a surprise that a hard to navigate system will slow down productivity. But many systems out there are difficult to use and slower than they should be. Don’t forget that many legacy systems don’t make it easy for you to get the information you need while on the go.

Your system needs to be agile while making it easy to input or find the information that you need to control your business when and where you need to take charge. Easy to navigate interfaces will help you get to the screens you need and a well-planned implementation incorporating your processes and your style of work, helps you put in place the functionality you need and automation that will save you time.

How Acumatica Can Help: Acumatica makes it easy to collaborate on PC, Mac Tablet, or Smartphone, so you can get your information on the road, at home, or anywhere else you do business. Acumatica’s interface and dashboards help you make sure the content you need is always at your fingertips, and a built-in user guide helps you learn at your own pace as your roles and responsibilities shift into the future.

Productivity

Keeping your employees connected is keeping them productive. When you have employees disconnected from the pulse of your company, either because they are working remotely or they don’t have access to your system for any number of reasons, they become unproductive. This causes their coworkers to become unproductive as well because they end up spending a more time connecting with their coworkers and sending or receiving status updates throughout the day.

Your ERP system needs to be able to keep everyone connected throughout your day, whether they are in the office or not. This will ensure that needed information is always in the hands of the people that need it, and help them stay on task, cutting down time spent wasted on status meetings and other catch-up sessions.

How Acumatica can help: Acumatica’s cloud-based SAAS system gives you and your employees the ability to access your companies information from anywhere at any time, on a computer or mobile device that is connected to the internet. Using Acumatica’s web-based interface through any standard web browser or Acumatica’s mobile app is the easiest, and most efficient, way for your employees to access data through their normal day to day activities, making it easy for them to get the job done no matter where their duties take them.

Flexibility

our company is unique. What you do, and the way you do it is important to how your company performs. We at Cortekx understand this and want to help you find a solution that can be as unique as you need it to be so you don’t have to try and squeeze yourself into the same box that everyone else tries to fit in.

How Acumatica Can Help- Acumatica gives you the ability to adapt your solution at any time so you can add capabilities as you need them, and Acumatica helps you integrate with third party solutions that you already use in order to make sure that you are not hindered in any way that is unneeded through implementation, and beyond.

Real-time Information

Getting your information when and where you need it is obviously important to run your business. Not having the right information is basically the same thing as running into a pitch black room with an angry tiger, not a fun time to say the least. In order to make sure you see the dangers that lay ahead, your system needs to work as fast as you do, and you need to be able to use that information in ways that are actually helpful.

Your system needs to take the information that you give it and help you make sense of everything. Useful dashboards and drill down capabilities should make finding the information you need painless. And you should be able to do what you need to do from anywhere that you work, at any time, from any device.

How Acumatica Can Help: Acumatica gives a 360 degree view of your business’s operations as they stand in real time, you can see customer interactions, purchases, and helps you see what is performing well and what isn’t.

Ability to continue growing

Your ERP system should not dictate how you run your business, it should enable you to continue growing the company that you worked so hard to make as great as it is. Don’t let your outdated or slow system hold you back from expanding into the new age.

Your ERP system needs to give you the ability to add your entire team into the conversation, without the fear of adding onto the price tag. You need a system that will adapt as your company grows, and you need a system that will help you improve cash flow by removing errors.

How Acumatica Can Help: Acumatica’s cloud-based ERP system gives you unlimited users so you, and your team, can all stay up to date with the information that you need, and you can add new employees as you grow. Adapt to growth easily with Acumatica because it was designed for it at inception.
