Everywhere you go, you see mobile devices. People check email, call friends, text their children, check the weather, and even shop on the go. Mobile has become a “must-have” rather than a nice-to-have resource for both work and play.
The same goes for mobile ERP. ERP systems have matured from site-based software to cloud-based mobile applications that provide many benefits to small and mid-sized businesses. Mobile ERP solutions such as Acumatica Cloud ERP, Sage 100, and other related software put powerful business applications into the hands of many businesses.
The Many Surprising Benefits of Mobile ERP: The Top Three
There are so many benefits of using mobile ERP that narrowing them down to the top three took us some time. Companies using new mobile ERP solutions rave about the ease of access, better features, and time-saving benefits. Other benefits include:
- Real-time synchronization: With mobile ERP, data can be entered anywhere that your business takes you. Field sales staff can enter orders while they are at a customer’s location. The data immediately feeds into the accounting system, updating the company’s projected sales for the quarter. The warehouse and fulfillment center can also see that a new order has arrived and hurry to expedite it if the customer needs it. Real-time data synchronization through cloud-based mobile ERP systems ensures that no matter where you are, data that’s entered through one device can be seen and reported throughout the organization. The entire business can respond more quickly to needs.
- Improved data accuracy: Companies using mobile ERP also report improvements in data accuracy. Mobile makes it easier for employees to key data once into the system and share it easily. This reduces manual data entry, which can lead to mistakes.
- Enhanced customer satisfaction: Employees are very satisfied with their mobile ERP, but it may be surprising to read that it also enhances customer satisfaction. Data shared across an organization helps prevent customers from getting mixed messages every time they call for an update or information. Because the same data keyed into one part of the system appears elsewhere, customers receive consistent information no matter who they speak to within the company. CRM systems added to ERP systems can also provide tailor-made messages and updates that enhance and build customer relationships.
