In a nutshell, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) attempts to integrate all departments and functions across a company to create a single software program that runs off one database. It allows a company to automate and integrate the majority of its business processes. By sharing common data and practices across the entire enterprise, and producing and accessing information in a real-time environment, a good ERP system strives to make an enterprise more streamlined, more effective and more profitable.
By simplifying access to vital business information and connecting departments and systems, ERP allows businesses to increase employee productivity and operational efficiencies.
