what can ERP do?
the tasks necessary to perform a business process—such
as order fulfilment, which involves taking an order from a customer,
shipping it and billing for it. With ERP, when a customer service
representative takes an order, he or she has all the necessary
information—the customer's credit rating and order history,
the company's inventory levels and the shipping dock's trucking
schedule. Everyone else in the company can view the same information
and has access to the single database that holds the order.
When one department finishes with the order, it is automatically
routed via the ERP system to the next department. To find out
where the order is at any point, one need only log in to the
system. With luck, the order process moves like a bolt of lightning
through the organization.
