Most business owners and entrepreneurs will find themselves analysing their progress in the run-up to Christmas. Organisations typically use the festive period to assess their performance from the last 12 months. It’s a time for reflection and assessing your wins and losses, but it’s also a time to look forward and plan for 2018.
Though the years pass, every business owner will be asking themselves the following question as the New Year approaches: how can I make next year my best year yet?
How can I boost productivity, improve overall efficiency within my team, and grow my enterprise without having to part with a fortune?
We’ve got the answer right here for you: invest in the right technology for your business. Employing an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system will help you streamline your internal processes, better manage your data and get a real handle on your finances, supporting your efforts to expand your vision of unrivalled performance.
If you’re new to the concept of ERP platforms, now is the time to dive head-first into the 21st century and discover exactly what this software can provide for your business. If you’ve been using an outdated system for a while now, or one that’s not fit for purpose, the arrival of the New Year may encourage you to upgrade or switch systems for better results. Either way, it’s time to speak to Oakley about how we can support your quest for unprecedented expansion in 2018 and beyond.
Why the New Year is the best time to implement your new ERP platform
It’s a new year, which means it’s a new start. Staff return from the holidays well-rested and full of newfound enthusiasm, so now is the best time to introduce a new way of working and lay the foundations for a much more productive and efficient 2018.
How a new ERP system will support your growth
At a fundamental level, ERP software will transform your business processes – but its benefits extend well beyond this. For example, Sage ERP platforms can be integrated with other third party applications to ensure all data is accessible from one place. This in itself will speed up routine tasks and ensure you and your staff don’t need to switch between multiple products to find what they’re looking for.
Also, the cloud-based ERP systems actively promoted by our team offer a wide range of customisation options. If you’ve grown out of your current out-of-the-box setup, now is the time to explore a much more tailored ERP structure. If you’re thinking about investing in ERP software but you have concerns that a brand new platform won’t provide you with the right tools for the job, think again – user defined fields and custom scripts are all made possible with the latest Sage products, and they’re all available via a straightforward, intuitively-designed cloud interface for ease of use.
