6 Reasons to Go Mobile (If You Haven’t Already)

Posted on 1 June 2017 by Paulo de Matos

paulo_6_reasons_to_go_mobile.jpgTraditional ERP systems have simplified and revolutionised modern business. However, in today’s world of globalised and digitised markets, it is becoming increasingly vital to access tools and data on the go. Here are some of the key things driving the move to mobile ERP:

  1. Solution for a modern workforce

One of the key changes mobile ERP brings is that employees are no longer deskbound. Critical information can be inputted and accessed on the go, via mobile devices. Alerts of delays or problems can be delivered remotely, so they can be dealt with immediately no matter their location.

  1. No more downtime

Any delay of inputting information is costing your business money. For example, sales reps who can only check stock levels and conclude orders when physically in the office. Mobile ERP eliminates unnecessary delays, making data accessible to those who need it, when they need it.

  1. Cloud is essential

Information sharing is immediate and consistent throughout your organisation, regardless of geography. 

  1. Increasing complexity

As your company grows, it is likely that the interactions amongst participants increases, adding complexity to processes. The more complicated these various aspects become, the more difficult it is manage. Mobile ERP not only simplifies your business by integrating these processes seamlessly, but also facilitates better and faster communication and access to information.

  1. Collaboration is king

As more people work remotely and global supply chains become commonplace, the need to access and share data is increasing. Mobile ERP improves information and process collaboration.

  1. Enhance your existing ERP

The important thing to remember is that mobile ERP does not replace your existing ERP system. It enhances the collaborative nature of ERP, often taking processes directly to their source, allowing for faster decisions and actions to be taken. This hybrid approach to process deployment means you are able to leverage from the benefits both options provide you, allowing you to address your company’s unique requirements.
