What does an ERP App (Enterprise Resource Planning Application) do?

ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning and its application is used for managing data and information. The purpose of this application is to collect, stock and streamline information for the assistance of huge organizations. Although an organization is equipped with Customer Relationship Management software or CRM, a storage or warehouse, manual information systems and accounting but there isn’t always any connecting links between or among them. This is where ERP apps come in, it connects and shares information between all these platforms so that there is a comprehensive, managed and efficient system.

Modern ERP systems are very agile, mobile and secure. Some of these modern systems have cloud computing so that information is easily accessed and delivered through internet. It is said that, “time is money”. By using such a system as an ERP application, not only does the user work efficiently, but it also saves time.

Integration and incorporation of all the basic requirements of an organization are adhered in ERP application tools. Now, when a request is made by a client for a product, instead of following various steps the user can check the availability of the product in the warehouse in one click and let the client know, with the use of an ERP app. Without such an application, however this wasn’t possible, it was a time consuming, tedious and back-and-forth communication process.

The concept of ERP has been in use for many decades. In the olden days, ERP was done on paper, and then later with gradual incorporation with main frame computer in 1964 by a company called the Toolmaker Black and Decker. Later more improvements came to the concept of incorporating all the systems together. Till eventually, in 1990s ERP was officially born and gradually adopted by businesses of all industries.

Now, it is simply mind boggling to think of a large scale organization working without an integration of all its systems.
