WHAT IS ERP?

An ERP system is an integrated solution, sharing a centralized database, with all ‘users’…. Human Resources/Payroll/Benefits, E-procurement, Accounting, Budgets, etc …. being served by the same database through one point of entry. Data need only be entered or updated once, reducing errors, time and labor for reports, analysis, planning and program management. Ultimately, time and resources are shifted to innovating, problem solving and direct service to customers rather than inputting, processing, organizing, verifying and related “busy work” that burns through time and money.
