Signs your business needs ERP Software

We have discussed a few times by now the advantages for companies that come from using ERP software  However, we have never identified the signals that will help you decide to adopt ERP software.

ERP or Enterprise Resource Planning is a management solution that companies use to help them with their expansion strategies. ERP software will help you with processes, from project management, logistics issues, accounting, purchasing, sales, etc.

Every company benefits from a solution that will help it be more efficient and productive. However, they cannot always identify that it is time to adopt ERP software. We show you the signs that your business needs ERP software:


You don't have the data you need to make decisions.

Incomplete, non-existent or inaccessible information means that your strategic decisions are based on assumptions. If you are unaware of the performance of your business, you may be making critical decisions that undermine your business growth and mortgaging your goals.


Data inconsistencies usually happen for 3 reasons: 

  • Data is spread across people or departments;
  • The process of collecting such data does not exist or does not work properly;
  • Data is accessible and can be changed by many people at various times, compromising its reliability.


With a good ERP solution, all data is housed in a centralized system. By eliminating dispersed data, the collaboration between different departments, which have access to up-to-date information in real-time, is easier.

No cross-platform integration

If you have multiple standalone systems or software without an ERP as a base, there are certainly communication failures, data redundancies, and workflow delays. A suitable ERP system brings individual functions together in an integrated space that is easy to access and intuitive. The flexibility of an ERP can give your business a reduced workload, freeing up departments and functions.


Not meeting internal and external expectations and goals

If your goals are not being met, sales are slow or going down, it is important to gauge the negative points of your business. How do your customers perceive your company? Do your employees spend a lot of time on time-consuming tasks? Evaluating these issues and equipping your business with the right tools to thrive is essential. This is where ERP software will help you.


All these signs are indicative of the urgent need to adopt an ERP system. If you wish to adopt an ERP system for your company, contact us. ZALOX develops bespoke software to help your business achieve its goals.
