When you want to successfully carry out projects within an organization, good management from above, in which all resources and workers are well distributed, is crucial. This distribution of resources is also called resource planning; a complex and important task within project management. To make this process efficient and accurate, it is wise to invest in an Enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Below we explain the advantages of a good ERP system.
1. Monitor processes clearly thanks to ERP
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is a type of business software used within organizations to support certain business processes. Because a good ERP system consists of several sub-modules, it is usually possible to support all business processes by using those modules. For example, planning of personnel, registering vacations and leave days and distributing and managing inventories. In this business software a large number of business processes can therefore be accommodated and monitored from a clear overview page. Moreover, ionBIZ's ERP system can be synchronized with Outlook, allowing you to receive automatic planning updates.
2. Manage tasks easily
Planning, managing and approving tasks is an important part of project management. Those who work with lists in Excel and not with ERP business software quickly notice that this is a time-consuming and error-prone job. Enterprise resource planning software actually makes it possible to have immediate insight into the tasks to be planned, receive automatic updates and easily request and approve tasks. In this way, errors are prevented and tasks can be planned and executed more efficiently and smarter.
3. Personnel planning always correct and up to date
Manually creating work schedules is time consuming, inefficient and confusing. Resource planning software offers a solution to this problem thanks to integrated planning systems and a clear visual planning board. Days off and vacations can be read into the system, so that the company software always has up-to-date information on all available workers. Planning conflicts are immediately visible in the planning board, making them quickly resolved. An important advantage of ERP is that the planning is always accurate and correct.
4. Simple analysis and optimization
When you use planning software as a company, you have all information about previous schedules, scheduling conflicts and resources digitally. This makes it much easier to evaluate this data and continuously optimize the resource planning. The ERP system of ionBIZ makes it possible to filter reports by project, department, resources and skills.
