Managing Human Capital with ERP

Posted on 8 June 2016 by Shaun Butler

shaun_ERPeople.jpgERP is often described as the backbone of a company, but in my opinion the spinal association is less than exact. Using an anatomical metaphor is great, but let’s go beyond quick assumptions and get it right. Perhaps it would be better to say that ERP is like the Central Nervous System (CNS), the all-important connections that run from your brain down the spinal cord. Like ERP, the CNS integrates all the body’s information, triggering, adjusting and coordinating everything our bodies do. This change of metaphor frees up the backbone, which I think is better used to describe the role and function of Human Capital – the most important driver for making an ERP solution useful.

Build on SYSPRO, use anywhere

Posted on 7 October 2014 by Shaun Butler

build_on_syspro_run_anywhereDespite the best of plans, ERP implementations often go wrong because customers have unique requirements that are always evolving and vendors will haul out the sledgehammers to force their solutions to fit - even if they weren't designed to deliver what the client wanted in the first place.

It's like trying to squeeze a watermelon into a small cup. Keep forcing it in and you'll end up with nothing but a messy pulp.

Every company is different. They compete in different markets, have a different target audience, and need solutions that support the different verticals they play in. No one solution can ever fit all.

Posted on 28 May 2014 by Shaun Butler

mobile ERP solution

In my previous post, I touched on why the mobile evolution plays an important role in the ERP realm and how businesses can benefit from deploying mobile ERP. Companies in the Asia-Pacific region, in particular, have the vantage point to be early adopters and lead this next evolution.

Equally important is the deployment of the right solution and one that can meet the requirements of your company's salesforce team. Choose the wrong tool and your expensive implementation will end up nothing more than a paperweight.

Putting ERP in the palm of your hand

Posted on 3 April 2014 by Shaun Butler

ERP in the palm of your hand

Fifteen years ago, it would have been tough to believe a little device no bigger than your palm would have enough computer power to not only render high-definition videos, but also be able to secure sensitive data with the swipe of a finger and provide access to your corporate network.

Oh, and you would also be able to make phone calls with it.

Today smartphones and mobile devices have evolved so quickly that they are now little offices that you can access anytime, anywhere. In fact, mobility is an area I am personally very interested in because I believe it’s changing society rapidly and offers many business benefits today and into the future.
