How does ERP help a manufacturing company

Does every company need an ERP system?

Does every company need an ERP system?

First off: what is an ERP system anyway? The company-wide control of machines, material, time and capital is hidden behind the term ERP. The abbreviation stands for the English term Enterprise Resource Planning and closes the complete cycle in a company from the customer inquiry or product idea to the final income statement.

Yes, but which ERP system?

It quickly becomes clear that the question of the relevance of ERP software is superfluous, even for very small companies. It remains to be seen which solution is preferred. Many companies certainly rely on conventional software programs such as Excel or Word to write tax-correct and visually appealing orders and invoices. However, these programs only close the gap for incoming payments, checking open items and dunning with a very high programming effort.

An integrated solution

Modern, profitable ERP solutions for corporate management can do much more. They create transparency from customer inquiries, through customer and supplier management, purchasing of goods, production and personnel planning, manufacturing, delivery to invoicing. Profitability and possible weak points in production or calculations can be put on paper at the push of a button. Companies quickly and easily keep track of the capital employed and gain an insight into the ROI (return on investment). While the annual report of the tax advisor deals with the figures of the past year, entrepreneurs receive daily updated figures and can still actively intervene in ongoing processes.

Benefit from the start

Those interested in HELIUM V are asking themselves the question of whether it is worth investing in an integrated ERP system when starting a new company or reorganizing. Over the years, we at HELIUM V have made the experience that it can be a decisive competitive advantage, especially for young entrepreneurs, to deal intensively with the most important key figures from an ERP software from the start. They provide information about the growth required to repay financing, contribute to transparency towards co-owners or investors and help to control medium to long-term corporate planning.

Simplify processes - save time

A fully integrated ERP system can also simplify existing processes and save resources. Think of a web shop whose orders are received by email and are not directly connected to the inventory control system. How annoying when customers at the other end receive confirmation of the purchased item, but it is not available in the desired time and has to be produced first.

With the software solutions from HELIUM V, customers rely on a comprehensive portfolio of options and industry solutions that can be adapted to individual needs. ERP systems help start-ups to get going and ensure entrepreneurial foresight in established companies.
