Insight: Invaluable visibility – exploiting ERP to get a 360-degree view of your business

The real power of ERP is the insight it gives business leaders into every facet of their organisation. Movers and makers are juggling a lot of balls in this challenging commercial climate, and it has never been more important to have access to single source of truth. NexSys shares ways to exploit ERP to get a 360-degree view of your business.

A centralised ERP system that connects your entire business ecosystem provides a helicopter view of what is happening at any given point in time. Only then can you identify bottlenecks, spot opportunities, and focus attention on the issues that will have the greatest impact on your bottom line.

Shining a light

You need to view, access and interpret what is happening from the shop floor upwards to have the insight for effective intervention and truly informed decision-making. Yet there are times when every business leader feels they are in the dark. Getting the right information to the right people at the right time is challenging, especially when dealing with disparate systems that cannot share information accurately or effectively.

Seeing the big picture is mission-critical when the commercial and economic landscape keeps shifting. What impact will an interest rate rise have on my cashflow? How will supply chain disruption impact on order fulfilment? What can I do to improve energy efficiency and reduce my bills? Whatever the question, the answer lies in access to reliable real time data. Without that solutions are hard to come by and driving change is an uphill struggle.

Blinkers off

Building a comprehensive digital infrastructure that links every facet of your business is a prerequisite to insightful thinking and will help you steal a march on the competition. That connectivity is truly transformative, and at NexSys we see first-hand the impact that level of transparency has on our movers and makers.
