What is ERP? An Expert Guide, Produced by Moore Insight

9th June 2021

Sheffield-based business consultancy, Moore Insight has published their new white paper, an expert guide to Enterprise Resource Planning.

Enterprise Resource Planning was first introduced in the market almost three decades ago, however there are still question marks around what exactly it means and what it is used for.

With 30 years of experience in leading successful ERP projects, Moore Insight’s systems-independent experts, Peter Morley and Brian Mahon give us a deep insight on what ERP is, their core features and the benefits that they provide to organisations. They also take a closer look at the phases of the ERP journey and provide their expert advice for a successful ERP implementation.

In this white paper, Peter Morley gives a simple description of its basic function: “At its most basic level, ERP integrates all core business processes into one logical system.”

Covering processes over:

  • Finance
  • HR
  • Supply chain
  • Procurement
  • Sales and more,

ERP systems enable organisations to operate more efficiently, by managing and integrating key business information.

But why do organisations implement Enterprise Resource Planning?

Peter Morley says:

There are many reasons why organisations choose to implement ERP systems and the most important come from answering key questions about the way that a business operates, the time that it consumes in information processing, the consistency and integrity of its data and whether different departments within an organisation rely on separate and disjointed information”.

As Brian Mahon states: “As organisations grow, they reach a point where all these factors become increasingly daunting and costly. This is where integrated ERP systems can be a best-fit solution for your business.”

An independent view of solutions and the benefits of ERP

In the white paper, Moore Insight’s software-independent experts take a closer look at the core features of ERP systems, as well as the key benefits that ERPs offer. From business insight and better collaboration to data integrity and security, and cost savings, ERP systems can offer many benefits to an organisation if the right solution is chosen for the business’s size and complexity, and it is implemented properly.

Moore Insight’s ERP experts highlight the importance of understanding the end-to-end journey of ERP to every successful implementation project. In this report, Peter Morley and Brian Mahon provide the key phases of a typical ERP journey, whilst emphasising, “The ERP Journey is a sustained evolution of development and growth, from the perspective of a longer term organisational strategy.”
