How does an ERP work?
ERP works as a brain of a business. Multiple areas of a business and their processes are connected together, enabling the flow of the data between them.
It combines together various different reports and metrics across all business departments into the same view. With that, it's very easy to see the health of the business, have a full view of what is going on, and how business resources are spent.
Today, ERP systems are critical for many businesses of all sizes and in various industries.
