The Ms ACCESS-ERP system integrates all the organizations' information systems into one system in a way that permits the use of shared information in an integrated manner and in a uniform interface.
Although the interface is uniform, it is possible to interface with external software, using an API such as payroll software, and to receive external data from marketing and advertising sites, Internet media, and subcontractors who work with other information systems.
Who uses ERP systems?
Ms Access-ERP is primarily used by large and medium-sized businesses, factories, and industries, and is in great demand with organizations with distributed sites to manage their company anywhere in the world.
The system uses all the organization's departments, such as marketing, orders, customer service, management, production, finance, TFI, warehouses, installers, and field agents.
Methods of ERP implementation:
Ms Access-ERP is embedded in the SAS model, which provides software as a service for a monthly fee. The systems are operated through a web platform, either locally or in the cloud.
Local systems are installed on the physical servers of an organization and are typically used by non-public organizations.
You will only be able to access data with permission and by logging in to their servers.
Offering a complete development environment that facilitates special adaptations to the customer, from small changes to screens or reports, to the addition of modules and complete functionality
What are the benefits of an ERP system?
Ms Access-ERP offers many benefits, including:
Centralization – The most relevant and main advantage is the centralization of information in the organization with uniform interfaces.
It allows the retrieval of data in real time and contributes to the rapid and efficient decision making process based on the information retrieved from the information systems.
Adaptability – Systems that provide a development environment can quickly respond to the dynamics of the corporate environment. Then if a particular module needs to be modified or adapted, it can be done at a low cost and during a rapid development cycle.
An organization in development invests in a system of time and resources according to its needs and progress, which is a very important advantage.
Saving resources and increasing flexibility – a developing organization does not have to purchase all the modules within a modular system, but can gradually implement only the modules that are essential to it and add a module according to its development.
Additionally, the system can understand the needs of the organization, help manage production and inventory, and provide quick answers to decision makers.
An efficient system that saves time and money is manpower saving- The number of people needed to perform actions that are accessible to everyone in one information system is reduced.
Organisational order and efficiency – The system incorporates, among other things, the organization's procedures in such a way that system users learn the same procedures, thus creating order within the organization and preventing malfunctions and bottlenecks.
In an interactive system- all employees and departments are connected, synchronized and the conduct of the organization is optimized.
Ensures that the process does not malfunction.
What are the disadvantages of ERP systems?
In addition to the pros, there are also a few cons:
The ERP system needs to be implemented and learned – something that requires a lot of manpower and time. It is impossible to work with the ERP system without implementation and training.
Budget – ERP systems are not suitable for every organization, organizations that purchase ERP systems need to allocate a budget and manpower costs that will be required to implement and set the system up.
time to the project – In order for the ERP system to be used optimally by an organization, all decision makers must devote their time and effort to implementing the system.
Hence, in order for the system to reflect the DNA of the organization, the vision of its management to be reflected in the system, and the work procedures to be assimilated optimally, it is important to involve managers from the organization even if it is temporarily, and up to the point they are fully integrated into the system.
In the long run, the investment in time and effort but the benefits that the system delivers are overwhelming. The system provides users with the opportunity to work easily, quickly, efficiently, and gives decision makers a realistic mirror image of both business activity and science in real time.
