Now ¿What is an ERP?

An ERP is an integral system that covers all areas of a business and allows the company to have full visibility of what is happening in it; this system is ideal to become the right hand of the company in decision making.

If the systems of your company no longer provide the performance you need, in this blog you can find out about the most relevant signs to know if your business needs an ERP system:


  1. Your company is growing considerably.

It is usual for many companies to depend on tools such as Excel to take control of the business; however, this tool will be insufficient in the future as long as the company maintains constant growth.

If you are wondering which system is the right one for your medium or large company, we recommend you to look at an ERP system that allows you to have a real-time analysis and effectively integrate the information of all areas of your business.


  1. Your company does not have a single source of information.

Your company does not have a single source of information if your business still depends on spreadsheets; it is likely that the data or versions of each area are different. This means that the information is not reliable.

Given this problem, an ERP system will allow you to integrate in a single source of information the data of all areas of your business and will support them to make better decisions, in a timely manner.

One of the signs to urgently enable an ERP system is when your customer no longer feels well taken care of by your company.
