How ERP Software Enhance your Business Productivity & Profits | Devstringx Technologies
ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) — Every organization is divided into several departments based on functions. Administration, finance, marketing, sales, customer service, public relations, inventory, logistics, production and HR, ERP software is not a simple but a massive software architecture that integrates all the departments of the organization and helps them communicate with each other.
ERP software improves visibility for companies by organizing and centralizing the data that is essential to the business into one area and all company information is available for employees and management to access when needed. If your data is decentralized, the decision makers will have no idea of the whole picture at any point of time. It is a time consuming process to fetch data by email, letters or phone, in a competitive industry; it can impact the firm’s growth prospects as they can’t respond fast to changing market conditions and consumer demand.
Let’s see what happens in a decentralised data system: If the sales department gets a large customer order, they check with the inventory department for availability of the product. If it is not available, they approach the production department to produce more. The production team consults with inventory to know the stock of semi-finished goods and store for raw materials. They may need to order fresh batch of raw materials. If inventory did not consult with the Finance Department before placing order, payments to vendors may be delayed. During this time, the consumer may have left and gone to the competitor. Organizations get huge loss of business, market share and brand value by this mistake.
ERP System is not only a software solution that makes the organization adapt its business processes to confirm to its system, it is also customized according to the requirements of the company. ERP System is not only useful for large organizations; it is also useful for small and medium businesses too.
Our Customised ERP Software Development Process
We know every industry has some different way to manage their data, it is not possible to develop one software that fulfill all industry requirements, therefore Devstringx Technologies provides customized ERP software solution. Our customized ERP software development process is divided in 6 phases: Discovery and Planning, Design, Development, Testing, Deployment, and Ongoing Support.
1. Discovery and Planning
This is the first phase of customized ERP software development process, in this phase, the project team is created, the initial meetings and documentation is developed as the team works to identify current issues and potential solutions. In this phase, we construct the project plan, which will serve as a guide throughout the rest of the project.
In this phase we transform user requirements into some suitable forms, the project team and implementation team worked out the various configurations for the new system, defining roles, and documenting standard procedures.
In this phase, we prepare the entire system for going live. In this phase we do activities such as complete any necessary customizations, developing user training, and importing data. With ERP implementations, like any custom software development projects, we first, solve the problem. Then, write the code.
By the end of this phase, project team members feel comfortable to do their jobs in the new system; this is the final step before diving into the live system.
The project team and implementation team assess the situation and make the final decision to go or not-go to live the project. Before going live, the final data is loaded and validated, after that the project team trains other employees who will then start working in the new system, and completely stop using the old one.
6. Ongoing Support
Once the ERP system has gone live and users start work within the system, we provide expert support service when you need it. Devstringx Technologies offers Helpdesk Support via telephone, email and chats. Our skilled support team helps to resolve any technical problem by providing you a clear and simple solution.
Timeframe and Costing for Custom ERP Software Development
The Timeframe and Costing of Custom ERP Software Development are based on the number of modules and the expected functionality. The complex functionality consumes more finances and time as compared to a simple system because sophisticated custom ERP software takes time to write codes for application, data integration, and migration. It is almost impossible to guess how much time and cost will be needed without performing the analysis of requirements.
