Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

What is Enterprise Resource Planning?

Enterprise Resource Planning, also known as an ERP system, ensures cross-functional support of all business processes that take place in a company. For this reason, it contains modules for all areas of the company - including sales, controlling, production, procurement, human resources and asset management.

The data provided by ERP can be used, for example, to determine a company's key performance indicators in order to achieve its business objectives. ERP helps to save time, costs and effort by improving the organisational structures and workflows within the respective company. In addition, the stem serves as the central management tool for the entire business management of a company.
