ERP Software Development Services

What Is ERP and How Do ERP Systems Work?

Enterprise Resource Planning systems (ERP) are software solutions that can integrate your business processes into a single unified system. When leveraged correctly whether applied to manufacturing, banking, supply chains, human resources or customer relationship management —  they can empower you to level up your business.

At SPG, we provide cutting-edge ERP solutions that can prove to be extremely useful in planning operations, administration and to optimise internal business processes. With over 20 years of technical prowess and experience, our developers automate your operations in an iterative and incremental fashion to not only improve your profit margins, but enable your business to keep pace with technology.

Bespoke ERP Solutions

We build custom ERP solutions with your company's needs in mind. From analysing your initial requirements to designing and developing in iterations, our developers can rapidly respond to feedback and adapt to your evolving demands.

Improve ERP Systems

SPG modify existing ERP modules to better suit your industry’s demands. This covers features including porting, capturing transactional data (such as access to specialised data and RFID), advanced planning and scheduling (APS) and others.

Extend ERP Systems

For those with existing ERP systems in place, we can also extend your product’s functionality with additional bespoke tools and features. We could, for instance, create a reporting and tracking solution to predict and keep an eye on KPIs and trends.

Data Migration

Software Planet Group can help your business to safely copy, migrate and restructure data from an existing outdated solution to the new and improved Enterprise Resource Planning system. We have migrated hundreds of projects over the years.

What Company Departments Could Benefit the Most from ERP Systems?

Despite some clever marketing and hype, the reality is most organisations have unique needs and challenges that cannot be met by a single ERP solution. After all, whilst your sales department might utilise CRM modules, HR might require an HCM package, and your financial and accounting department might make use of yet another package altogether. Nonetheless, not only is there an ERP system for virtually every company department, but with the help of a bespoke solution, they can effectively be tied together.

Logistics

From the purchase of raw materials and delivery of food and liquids, to the final packaging of products and transportation of goods to consumers, a high-quality ERP solution can help companies manage logistics more effectively. Potential areas that stand to benefit include:

  • Fleet & inventory management
  • Inbound and outbound transportation
  • Security of goods
  • Staff management
  • Warehousing
  • Carbon track & trace (CTT)

Procurement

Whether aiming to improve the supplier qualification process, ensure uninterrupted operations, streamline purchase orders or procure-to-pay, a procurement management system can help you upgrade your relationships with suppliers. Likely benefits include any or all of the following:

  • Increased collaboration between buyers and suppliers
  • Better Request for Quote (RFQ) management
  • Embedded analytics
  • Enhanced quality control
  • Support for a mobile workforce

How ERP Adds Value to Your Business

Beyond lowering expenses and increasing profit, ERP systems can strengthen the performance of your business by saving time and turbocharging productivity. After all, they provide organisations with important tools including executive information systems, early warning systems and reporting. These enhance your business processes with much better decision making. In addition, by synchronising all of your input into a single centralised location, you can stop drowning in data and guesswork and make adjustments based on reliable information.

What Industries Need ERP Software?

For nearly two decades, Software Planet Group have worked with companies in the following industries:

Food & Catering

Telecommunication

Construction

Real Estate, Property & Facility Management

Distribution

Travel & Hospitality

Why Clients Choose SPG as Their ERP Software Development Company

Whilst ERP software had its origins in tracking inventory, orders and activities, over the years, it has evolved into affording far more promising capabilities. This should hardly come as a surprise, as machine learning and artificial intelligence are helping to automate business processes, the Internet of things helps with tracking data and storing it on the cloud, and blockchain technology can even be used to trace regulatory issues to their responsible suppliers.

With all of these technological advancements, in order to remain competitive, it is important to employ agility and respond quickly to your customer’s demands — this can only be accomplished with the help of a modern ERP system.

Though building a custom ERP solution may appear to be more costly at the outset, it can unlock a plethora of benefits and provide much higher returns on investment. Furthermore, by choosing bespoke ERP development with SPG over an off-the-shelf ERP solution, you can effectively future-proof your company, as you enable your software product to scale alongside your growing business.

We Can Integrate With the Following ERP Systems

Whether you would like your bespoke solution to communicate with a third-party system, to simply customise your existing software, or even extend your system’s functionality, Software Planet Group work with the following ERP providers:

From ETL Tools to ESBs

We know that data is of paramount importance to your organisation. Yet in order for your company data to truly grow into its actualised potential, we need to find a reliable way to gather information from a variety of sources, organise and group it into a single location. This is only made possible with the help of ETL processes. Thankfully, SPG have years of experience building cutting-edge ETL solutions that are able to extract raw data from a multitude of sources and transform it with your unique requirements.

Concurrently, increasing organisational agility is probably one of your top priorities. This is why we also utilise robust ESB architectures which not only make the most of your existing system’s capabilities, but expose them to newer applications through a centralised communication hub. We work with products such as Apache Camel and ServiceNow to build bespoke ETL and ESB systems.
