Thecomplexity of the global economy and modern consumer demands make it critical to streamline business processes and manage and optimize data. In this critical process management, ERP typically underpins these capabilities.  ERP or enterprise resource planning is a software designed to manage and integrate the functions of basic business processes such as finance, HR, supply chain and inventory management in a single system.  While ERP, which is widely used in businesses of all sizes, is considered a must for large enterprises,it  is also increasingly being used in growing small businesses  .


Key Components of an ERP System


An ERP system consists of software components or modules, each of which focuses on a different business process. While  specific modules are considered "fundamental" for almost any type of job, the key components addressed first are;


The ERP finance module automates basic accounting, invoicing, financial analysis, forecasting and reporting. The main reason a company switches from independent accounting software to ERP  is also often automated.


Human resources (HR) is another basic process that companies try to develop with ERP. Basic HR manages employee records, benefits management, and payroll, but ERP often adds talent management functions such as hiring and performance management.


Other ERP modules common to most businesses include order management, customer relationship management (CRM), and purchasing (procurement).  Companies engaged in manufacturing or distribution  typically add a supply chain  management (SCM) module to their systems to monitor inventory levels and manage warehouses and transportation along the supply chain.
