An example of several requirements for an ERP system

ERP requirement 1:

Is the ERP system integrated / homogeneous – working on 1 common database?

Danger:
Copying of data / documents causes numerous errors that affect customer relationships and reduce the profitability of sales / increase operating costs

Question:
What should be done / what should be the data entry process so that you do not have to copy the same document twice (eg invoice)?

Reply:
Rewriting the same documents is a waste of time and staff frustration – THEREFORE we need a system that runs on 1 database.


 

ERP requirement 2:

Does the ERP system have built-in reporting tools?

Danger:
Sending / pasting data to external reporting programs causes numerous errors that affect the making of wrong decisions or the lack of actual information about the company’s condition.

Reply:
Sending (pasting) data to external reporting programs causes the risk of errors and slows down the process of creating reports / analyzes – THEREFORE we need a system with built-in tools for reporting and data analysis.


 

ERP requirement 3:

Does the ERP system have a desktop / user interface that accelerates the work of employees?

Danger:
Problems in handling the current program cause that employees are inefficient or we have to hire additional employees because current staff does not keep up with their daily duties.

Reply:
The science and service of the current system is very complicated – WHY we need a system that would be similar to MS Office and easy in everyday work.


 

ERP requirement 4:

Does the ERP system allow you to work on any platform, any device?

Danger:
Lack of access to data at any time / any place causes that during meetings with customers / suppliers we do not have relevant and up-to-date information and we can not make the right decisions.

Reply:
Currently, access and entering data to the software used is possible only from the computer on which the program is installed, so we need to use notebooks / Excel / Outlook – THEREFORE we need a system that would free us from the local computer and enable work through the browser or tablet / smartphone.
