[VIDEO] Solutions Review Explores: What is ERP?

The editors of Solutions Review are pleased to announce today marks the launch of our brand new YouTube series: “Solutions Review Explores.” This ongoing series promises to explore and explain the categories and nuances of enterprise technology in a compelling visual format.

The first episode of Solutions Review Explores answers some of the most challenging and critical questions facing ERP, Supply Chain, and Manufacturing professionals today: What is Enterprise Resource Planning? How can my organization take advantage of this technology to enable enhanced manufacturing operations management?

ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning, but somehow that doesn’t convey what it means or what it does. Generally, it refers to the systems and software packages used by organizations to manage day-to-day business activities, such as accounting, procurement, project management, sales, and manufacturing and/or distribution operations.

ERP software helps enterprises to use integrated solutions for business management and to automate certain department processes of an organization, like Human Resources. Towards the beginning, when ERP software first came into the market, it was primarily designed for inventory management. Today, ERP systems have evolved to encompass a lot of other back and front-office operations.

Through Jonathan Paula’s expert narration, businesses can learn how to gain a competitive advantage by implementing an ERP solution. You can watch the embedded video here.
