21st Century ERP

This is the 2nd part of a three-part blog series titled, “21st Century ERP,” which consists of the following posts:

  1. Six Signs You Don’t Have a Modern ERP Solution
  2. 21st Century ERP Benefits
  3. Who in Your Business Would Benefit the Most from 21st Century ERP?

Poll: 3 Primary Benefits of New ERP

We recently conducted a poll of both Macola customers as well as prospects and asked this question: “What area of ‘New ERP’ would bring the most benefit to your business?”

We found the results to be very interesting, as over 60% claimed that the greatest benefit of ERP was Automated Workflows. The next closest, at 25%, was Built-in CRM, with Personalized Workspaces coming in third.

Of course, there are many more benefits of a new ERP solution, such as streamlining operations, managing key business functions, increasing productivity and growing profitability—just to name a few. But for now, let’s look a little more closely at the three benefits listed in this poll: automated workflows, built-in CRM and personalized workspaces.

Does this Mad Sales Manager sound like you? 

8:00am – You arrive at work. You look for that sales pipeline report that should be on your desk. You call Sales Administration and they say they did not get the spreadsheets faxed in from the western regions. You ask, “Why?” Crickets.

8:15am – You check your email. Right on schedule, you get two emails – one from the Mad Materials Manager and one from the Mad Financial Manager. (Remember them?) They both want to meet with you this morning.
