5 things to consider in the process of digitising a company
First of all, it is essential that you know what the main focus of your business is. What makes you unique? What is the value you offer to your customers? Identifying these questions will allow you to define the core of your business and focus your resources on what really matters.
Once you are clear about your core, it is important to have a management system in place to help you operate efficiently and effectively. In this sense, it is key to identify the functionality you need to start operating optimally. Do you need an inventory management system? A customer management platform? An invoicing and accounting software?
Where is all the information about my company? Do I have the information in different sources?
Do you feel overwhelmed by the amount of information you manage in your company? Don’t worry! With an ERP, you can have access to all your company’s information in one place.
We know that information is the key to business success, but we also know that it can be difficult to keep everything organised and at your fingertips. That’s why an ERP allows you to centralise all your information sources, including receipts, invoices, orders and monthly results.
An ERP allows you to access all this information quickly and easily, so you can make informed, real-time decisions. You no longer have to worry about missing an important invoice or not having access to your company’s results.
In an ERP, you’ll find all the tools you need to run your business efficiently and effectively. From inventory management to invoicing to accounting, everything is integrated so you can work smarter, not harder.
Have you asked yourself what your current processes are like and do you think you can improve them or make them more efficient?
The answer is yes! And the solution lies in digitisation.
Today, technology has advanced enough to allow businesses to operate more efficiently and effectively. Digitising business processes can help you streamline your operations, reduce costs and improve the quality of your products or services.
By carefully assessing your current processes, you can identify areas that need improvement and areas that can benefit from digitisation. Some of the most common areas where business processes can be improved are inventory management, customer management and invoicing.
Once you have identified the areas that need improvement, it is time to implement a business management system that allows you to digitise your processes. An ERP system will allow you to have a complete overview of your operations, from inventory management to invoicing and accounting.
Digitising your business processes will allow you to streamline your operations, reduce costs and improve the quality of your products or services. In short, you will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your business, which will translate into greater business success.
And not more difficult.
How will my company evolve?
If you have already implemented the basic functionalities of an ERP system in your company, now is the time to think about the additional functionalities that could further boost the digitisation of your business.
An ERP is a powerful business management tool that can help you improve the efficiency and productivity of your operations. By incorporating new functionalities into your ERP system, you can further optimise your business processes and improve your company’s performance.
Additional functionalities you might consider incorporating into your ERP system include human resource management, project management, supply chain management, customer relationship management (CRM), process automation and advanced data analytics.
Incorporating these additional functionalities into your ERP system will allow you to take a quantum leap in the digitisation of your business, improve the efficiency and productivity of your operations and increase business performance.
Once I have digitised my business, what should I do to maintain it? Do I hire in-house staff or outsource the services?
Once you have successfully digitised your business through the implementation of an ERP system, it is important to consider how to maintain and evolve it in the future. One of the key questions you might ask yourself is whether to hire in-house staff to evolve and maintain the tool or to outsource these tasks.
Maintaining and evolving your ERP system is essential to ensure that it remains a useful and effective tool for your business. Evolving the system will allow you to incorporate new functionality and enhancements to meet your changing business needs. Maintaining the system is important to ensure that it runs smoothly and to minimise technical problems that could disrupt your business operations.
The decision to hire in-house staff or outsource these tasks depends on several factors, such as the size of your business, your budget, the level of expertise required and your business objectives. Hiring in-house staff will allow you to have greater control and knowledge over your ERP system, but it also involves training costs, salaries and additional benefits. Outsourcing these tasks gives you access to a team of ERP specialists without incurring the costs of hiring and training in-house staff.
Ultimately, the choice between hiring in-house staff or outsourcing these tasks will depend on your business needs and the resources you have available. The important thing is to ensure you have the resources and support you need to maintain and evolve your ERP system effectively and efficiently.
