Enterprise Resource Planning Systems: Functions and Benefits
ERP has changed the way organizations manage their business operations. ERP provides the platform for managements to oversee the functions of the organization. Though modules such as CRM are independent of ERP, they still ‘communicate’ with ERP software for better appreciation of facts. In a business environment, the requirements of ERP vary according the organization. Thus, the ERP requirements of manufacturing industry are different from that of service industry. Similarly, companies involved in Wholesale, Retail, Education and F&B industries have their own customized ERP software. Schools and educational institutions can also have their own ERP system to keep track of their activities.
Every organization wants to grow and schools are no exception. The number of staff increases over time, leading to creation of divisions such as Teaching Staff, Non-teaching staff and ancillary staff. The admission process gets complex and facilities like transport, library and laboratory are setup. Activities such as HR Management, Attendance Management, Examination Management and Payroll Management take place. To have total control over multiple activities, schools require special software to ensure smooth operation of the school system.
