Posted on: April 5, 2017 | By: Craig Thompson | Acumatica

    Although many businesses have found ways to increase automation throughout the company, several still struggle with collaboration between functions. Disconnected business functions can be apparent in accounting, CRM, inventory management, sales order processing, distribution, reporting, and more! Perhaps this disconnect between functions is not always apparent at first, but where the true problem lies is that it begins to create results that limit a business from achieving to the highest degree they are capable of. This blog will breakdown 5 of the most popular disconnects businesses are having and how a cloud based ERP solution can help integrate these applications to promote a connected business.

disconnects an ERP cloud solution can solve

 Duplicated Data

Solution:

            There is nothing worse than having to sift through duplicated data to find the actual information you are in search of. With an advanced ERP solution like Acumatica information is updated across the entire company instantaneously. This limits the burden of repeated exposure to outdated data that constantly slows down productivity.

Inaccurate Information

Solution:

            Similar to duplicated data in the system, inaccurate information can also prevent a business from working as a consistent unit. By keeping information across an entire business in a single ERP system an accurate and consistent version of the data is provided to employees in every department.

Lack of Information Shared

Solution:

            One of the main functions of a forward-thinking ERP solution is to share data between users efficiently. The hassle of having to email shared documents with other users takes time and deliberation. Rather in a modern ERP system productivity is improved because users have the same interface across all applications that can be shaped to any role.


Overwhelming Amount of Products to Master


Solution:

            Having to learn and relearn new products and their periodic updates causes frustration for even the smallest of tasks. Having to become familiar with multiple systems just to complete a one function is never ideal. This solution ERP systems bring is extremely straightforward—a singular system is used. With proper implementation and training of your specific solution, worries about learning to use multiple systems can now be released.

Limited Mobility

Solution:

            With outdated on-premise systems the computer that was installed with the software is the device you are bound to. In opposition cloud based ERP solutions offer capabilities for a mobile workforce. This will automatically enable employees to work anywhere, anytime, on any device!
