As a business grows, the workload of every unit also grows rapidly. It’s easy for the administrators to manage things on spreadsheets and e-mail at an initial level, but with continuous growth and expansion, manual handlings of records do not go long ways. Being unable to carry up with customer demands could hinder the entire operations. There arises the need of ERP that can bring together diversified activities of an enterprise under integrated software.
ERP is elongated as Enterprise Resource Planning but even its full name doesn’t shed much light on its meaning.
