It seems that you can’t look in any direction without seeing someone on the phone, iPad, or laptop these days. It’s not only for personal use any longer. Enterprises across the globe are adopting mobile solutions into their businesses. These apps, deployed on tablets and smartphones whenever employees want and wherever they are in the world, have greatly impacted almost every business function there is. Enterprise resource planning is certainly no exception to this new app driven world. Let’s take a look at how mobile ERP solutions like SYSPRO can drive greater efficiency across the enterprise.
Finding Out About Potential Issues as Soon as They Arise
Picture this: one of your main suppliers has a large shipment stuck in transit. The materials you ordered won’t arrive on time; this leaves you with a big problem. Part of your plant may sit idle while waiting for the shipment and you won’t be able to meet your deadlines. Your ERP system exists to warn you about situations like these when they arise. The tricky part is when your operations managers can only access the ERP platform through a fixed workstation, they may not find out about the problem until it is too late. With SYSPRO mobile ERP, you can rest assured that the managers will be informed immediately on whatever device they are using. Mobile ERP gives your managers the time to handle the situation and keep things running smoothly.
Keeping Employees Engaged and Happy
We live in a mobile world. When your employees have access to your ERP platform on their mobile devices they will be able to stay connected no matter where they are. They can submit expense forms, stay connected to the company documentation, and track their time off no matter where they are. This will increase efficiency because these administrative tasks can be done while sitting on the couch and not taking up dedicated work hours. Employees who are offered these mobile solutions often feel more satisfied with their jobs. We are so accustomed
to mobile apps in our lives that it just feels natural to have the same convenience in our work place.
Making Decisions Quickly
Information is key to running a successful business and luckily we are living in a period known as the Information Age. The ability to access the right information at the right time has allowed business leaders all across the world the ability to make informed decisions in a timely manner and still feel confident about them. The magic eight ball is a thing of the past. There is no need for guesswork when you have the hard data at your fingertips. Mobile ERP systems like SYSPRO provide operations managers the data they need to make informed decisions that will maximize value and cut down on waste. Mobility allows that the information to be available when and where it is needed. You will never find yourself relying on the old magic eight ball.
