Why ERP?

Though it originally appeared in manufacturing, the concept of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software has been widely accepted by many type of businesses, as well as non-governmental and governmental organizations. Information has become an extremely important resource for all types oforganizations, and it should be considered as another resource that needs to be properly handled and controlled nowadays.

Overall, ERP implies a software package that is capable of collecting and storing information, and performing the necessary transactions to support all major organizational business processes. Although some functions and features are common for any organization, a specific set of ERP functionality largely depends on the category of an organization, its size, and the industry in which it operates. For instance, service organizations and governmental structures primarily require support for financial operations, extensive human resource management, customer relationship management, and project management, while manufacturing businesses typically look for production-related functionality in addition to the above mentioned functionalities, such as purchasing management, inventory management, production planning and execution, service management, and so on. So the content of ERP software may differ significantly for different companies and organizations.
