Make no mistake, implementing and deploying ERP software is a game changer in providing businesses with powerful business tools to increase productivity and profitability. And in today’s mobile-centric computing world, the tablet and smart devices prevail versus traditional desktop PCs.
But that does not mean the new ERP software recently deployed throughout the organization is designed to be entirely a mobile-accessed platform.
A key aspect in implementing ERP software is understanding where it’s core processes reside, as noted in an article posted on iamwire.com:
“It’s important to first review and highlight the functions and roles that could benefit from mobile ERP… such as field engineers or sales people? Where is data being lost because it is not being captured fast enough? These are just some of the questions and considerations that help a business pinpoint where mobile ERP access is most needed.”
What it does recognize, though, is the shift to the cloud where SaaS applications, like Microsoft Dynamics ERP, provides cloud-based solutions to accounting, customer relationship management, eCommerce as well as professional services automation.
More importantly, users can use their mobile devices to access customized Dashboards, place an order with a vendor, or generate financial reports.
For sure, putting ‘mobile’ behind ERP opens up an “anytime, anywhere access” to the inner workings of the company. In fact, a Redshift global study noted that “97% of its respondents said that ERP would be improved in the future if it was more accessible out of the office.”
Ironically Microsoft Dynamics has been filling this need for some time.
