What Is ERP and Why Do You Need It?
As the management of a company start to observe that the need of their company is changing due to expansion and diversification, market behavior, and other reasons, they must have their system kept up with the change. ERP can be the smart way to look to in order to track such changes.
ERP, in full form, Enterprise Resource Planning, is a business process software used in managing and integrating all activities of an organization. It is used in managing financials, human resources, manufacturing, operations, reporting, supply chain, and all others.
Our findings at Mikevicone reveals that most organizations have what can be considered some kind of finance and operational system. However, most of such software are unable to capture business processes outside everyday activities and cannot help in planning for the future growth of the business. You can learn more about this here.
As earlier observed, there had been accounting, finance, and HR process being in use for a long. The challenge we have seen here is that these software systems worked separately and didn’t communicate. Hence the search began for how all systems within the same organization can be incorporated into a single solution with different persons having a different level of access and control within the whole system.
The search has since been rewarded with the introduction of enterprise resource planning which is capable of bringing all processes together to facilitate collaboration and the creation of one fluid system. In fact, in current ERP solutions, departments can see what each other is doing. Therefore, departmental plans can easily flow into the whole organizational goals. Marketing, sales, and customer relations can continue where others stop. And all others can feed information into the systems.
These are what we at Mikevicone have built for our clients and we can do the same for you if you contact us.
Before you decide, we need to tell you that there’s not yet all-up solution software that can take care of all business processes. That’s why you need experts like us to continue to look at whatever hasn’t been captured in your current ERP solution and with a view to improving and expanding the system.

The truth is that there's no ready-made perfect solution that fixes everything anywhere. It depends on your IT partner. A good ERP will be able to make the best of the business process you currently have and combine incorporate them into a system that will still enable your company to access the same information, provided you have the right technology partner like Mikevicone.
