As businesses grow there comes a point where internal systems and solutions become costly and disconnected. With this new territory, it is oftentimes difficult to pinpoint what exactly it is you need. This might be a good time to consider an ERP, a solution designed for this kind of business complexity.
Startups and young businesses usually don’t plan the growth of their information technology systems. Instead, over time they acquire a collection of individual apps to manage individual processes. This is advantageous at the beginning because it allows the founder/s to integrate the separate processes in their head/s, which drives agility and growth.
But eventually, these separate processes can become a costly liability. Their disconnectedness prevents the leadership of the business from having an insightful and accurate view of the whole business. The disconnection also limits how effectively a business can scale and threatens customer satisfaction. As any ShipStation user knows, it can become tedious and error-prone to rely on manual data entry or copy/paste of data between different apps.
If you’re at a point in growth where you’ve built a real business and it’s getting complex— with a handful of employees, maybe investors, a growing set of customers, inventory, and facilities, you have a real chance to succeed. But you also run the risk of missing a turn at high speed as you accelerate. You might sense that you “need something more” but find it difficult to articulate what you need because it’s all-new territory. This might be a good time to consider an ERP, a solution designed for managing these risks. Please join us for a discussion around what an ERP can do for your business and how it could save you a lot of time, money, and stress.
In this webinar, our speakers will go over the following topics:
