Document Management and ERP

Posted on: December 8, 2014 | By: Craig Thompson | Acumatica

A document management system does exactly what the name states, it is used to track and store documents for an organization.  Although seemingly simple, a document management system does a lot for an organization. Picture the situation of a product recall, a difficult but sometimes necessary action taken by companies. In a product recall, the ability to identify a product, communicate with customers and immediately ship a replacement can be the difference between an inconvenience and a disaster. Even with a spectacular ERP system, finding detailed documents to correctly review and resolve an issue could take more time than you can possibly afford, which is why document management systems are essential for all organizations, big or small.

A good document management system can streamline internal processes in HR, accounting and other departments by eliminating the extra time needed to locate and review important documents. Yet, the best type of document management system is one that is integrated with your company’s ERP system.  With document management and ERP integration a company can easily coordinate documents with retailers, manufactures and customers to expedite processes within and outside of an organization.   

Document Management and ERP system integration is essential to businesses, yet finding a way to allow these two systems to integrate seamlessly is no easy task. With great research and a tremendous IT department, it might be possible to find two products that flow together perfectly. Yet, another option would be to choose a product such as Acumatica, which is based in the cloud and offers complete document management and ERP integration.  With Acumatica’s document management and ERP integration you can allow your company to stay responsive to customers and industry requirements, with complete ease and accuracy.  To discover more about Acumatica’s cloud ERP, contact Logan Consulting, a Chicago based Acumatica partner.
