Configuration Options for ERP Integration Solutions
ERP systems are designed to feature out-of-the-box options that can be used as soon as they are integrated into your website. However, there are configuration options and customizable elements that can maximize the effectiveness of ERP integration for your business. If budget is an issue, then ERP systems can be used “as is,” but it is recommended that you consult with a custom software developer about tailoring them according to your company’s unique needs. Below are three of the customization options to consider in ERP integration.
Using Extensions for Customized ERP Systems
ERP systems can be integrated into third-party software so that you can continue to use the software you’re familiar with while benefiting from the automated processes of an ERP system. Extensions can offer, but are not limited to, the following features: access to specialized data, archiving, reporting, republishing, capturing transactional data, and advanced planning and scheduling (APS).
Data Migration for Customized ERP Systems
Most companies that integrate an ERP system find that they need to migrate vast quantities of data over to their ERP system. The migration is often quite difficult and requires careful planning and customization of your ERP system to accommodate the data.
An ERP expert can help you identify the data that needs to be moved and customize the migration-related setup accordingly.
Adjust Screens According to the Personal Operating the Software
It is becoming increasingly common for employees to wear multiple hats. For example, one employee may perform accounting, HR, and order fulfillment services. Generally, most out-of-the-box ERP systems have separate screens and modules for each of these tasks. However, you can integrate your ERP system so that the person who performs these services can view them on a single screen, which will enhance their job performance and the overall effectiveness of your company.
