Business Systems Consulting
All businesses have processes in place to operate. These range from sales order processing, manufacturing processes, accounting, tracking stock levels, customer relationship management (CRM) and so on. A business system (usually referred to now as a Enterprise Resource Planning, or ERP system) is a computer system which allows you to automate and easily maintain the processes. There are many systems available that satisfy companies process requirements from suppliers such as Sage and SAP. Many of these systems are becoming available as Software as a Service (SAAS) where the system is not hosted in-house but is hosted online, allowing companies to avoid the overhead of buying and maintaining Servers and other infrastructure.
Business Systems – Which one is right for you?
You have identified that your company requires a computer system which will; remove a paper based system, combine several systems, replace an archaic system which you purchased 10-15 years ago or, due to growth, is now required to automate processes and ensure that the business is running as efficiently as possible.
But… Which business system do you need? You have to choose the right business system! The vendors will all tell you that theirs is best and unfortunately it is down to you to choose the system even though you don’t have the experience in choosing the best fit for your needs. This is where an independent 3rd party with the experience, the knowledge and the technical know how is invaluable. We help you choose the right system for your business and the right company for you to work with.
