Industries that needs an ERP System

In previous blogs, we have already discussed a lot about ERP Systems and Manufacturing Industries, In this blog, we can see what are all the other Industries where ERP software is helpful. In general, an ERP is a complete package of different modules that integrates with all the departments in an organization. As a result, this benefits the company in many aspects like giving real-time information as well as not missing a single piece of information.

Industries that needs an ERP System

In recent days, since the customization of ERP Software is done more flexibly according to industry requirements, it is wanted by almost every organization irrespective of their size. It is almost used by all the departments like Accounts, Sales, Marketing, Human Resources, Finance, Supply chain management, Logistics, etc.

Manufacturing and Trading :

Due to the complex nature of the Manufacturing Industry, ERP Systems have become mandatory to handle all the processes with ease. The manufacturing business involves various complicated processes like getting sales orders, planning the production capacity, buying required raw materials, inventory management, and delivery of the products. Also, the main production consists of processes like forging, machining, molding, pressing, assembly, etc. Such complexities cannot be handled manually as a single error can lead to many problems making production delays.

 The next is the trading industry, where buying and selling takes place. Here the process involves supply chain management, as the goods are being bought from various places and sold to various places through transportation. Hence ERP Software is used to keep track of all the information.

 Construction :

Again the construction industry needs ERP software majorly to plan the project, schedule the task and assign them to the employees, keep track of ongoing project status, as well as inventory management. The Software helps any construction project to overcome three constraints like scope, time, and cost. The day-to-day activities are monitored and checked for any delay vs the actual planned work. This greatly helps the organization to forecast and plan to face any upcoming risks. The software also calculates employee wages, the number of working days, the cost prediction, and the final date of the project. With all this information the project manager can take timely decisions to avoid project risk or failure.

Healthcare :

The main aim of the Healthcare Industry will be serving their patients with treatments. But this involves quite a lot of information to be stored and retrieved at ease. For example, a patient visits the hospital for his regular checkups then the history of all his previous reports, the treatments undergone, how long he has been there and how many more checkups are fixed, and so on. To say it simply the information of any of the patients from day 1 till date should be readily available in the software. This can be accessed even though the patient visits any other department for other treatments. All this data cannot be maintained manually using a file as it occupies more space and is hard to retrieve each time. Hence these Industries need ERP systems to provide information in a matter of seconds from anywhere, anytime.

Wholesale & Retail :

The wholesale and retail industry in simpler terms can be called Demand and Supply. It is important to know the demand value as well as supply value for any given product and the process should be carried out based on the requirements only. In any case, if the demand is larger than the supply or the supply is larger than the demand, both raise a serious risk to the buyer or seller. Only when we know these values it is possible to run the business without loss. Such historical information can be given by the ERP software making it the business easy to forecast the needs.
