Getting the most out of your ERP System

An ERP System provides a company’s information system with some of its most important functional groups such as HR, CRM, Accounting, Purchasing, Inventory and Production. ERPs are as essential to a company as major organs can be to a human being. However, ERP systems have their shortcomings when it comes to planning finite capacities, human resources in particular, and running scenarios and simulations. Maintaining good master data quality is also complex. These shortcomings can be addressed with our Advanced ERP Connectivity.

Planningforce’s Advanced ERP Connectivity technology builds intelligent bi-directional pathways between the ERP and PlanningForce. These intelligent pathways orchestrate the data exchange between the two systems. They help repair inaccurate data and clean up obsolete data. They fill in the missing parts in routings and resource definition, maximizing the use of the PlanningForce scheduling engine. In addition, they facilitate the design of financial simulations and optimized supply strategies.

in doing so, PlanningForce’s Advanced ERP Connectivity increases the value of the ERP, most of the time without adding a line of code!

Give your ERP system the legitimacy It should have in your IT management system

ERP systems are time-consuming and expensive applications to implement. Yet, despite the effort put into such implementation processes, most companies complain that their investment is ultimately used for only a mere percentage of the functions implemented.

Towards more agility

The reason for this lies in the fact that ERPs are based on robust, but static and mechanical processes. But the needs of modern management are based on agility and the ability to make quick decisions through dynamic and intelligent processes.

In many companies, this lack of agility and more accurate translation of user needs in the articulation of the functionalities of ERP systems can be a source of tension or worse, demotivation amongst operational teams and managers.

Build intelligent bi-directional gateways

The solution to solve these problems and ultimately get the most out of your ERP system is to build intelligent bi-directional gateways. They should be built between the different modules of your ERP system and the planning and process management functions offered by PlanningForce.

Such gateways are intelligent agents that help to regulate and accelerate the flow of information between the different levels of management and actors in your company.They also help to enrich the master data contained in your ERP databases, and make it more reliable. Missing data is automatically entered and erroneous data is detected and corrected.

In practice, these intelligent agents are small “bricks” of artificial intelligence that promote connectivity between the functions of the different systems based on the contexts and needs of the users and the organization.

Reduce the TCO of your ERP

Moreover, the functionalities related to dynamic process management and fast, reliable decision-making based on simulations and dashboards are in PlanningForce, so that users and managers no longer have to put pressure on the IT department to create them in the ERP system.

In doing so, the existing functions of your ERP system will be increasingly valued and user confidence in the master system will be increased. The costs of maintenance and the creation of specific functionalities will be reduced, making the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of your ERP system lower.

The sustainability of your investment in the ERP system will increase accordingly.
