ERP software is really a decision support system, no matter the organization is small, medium or large or whether it is growing over vast geo locations or is compacted to small area.

Other way in which ERP helps management in taking the right decisions is by giving them the consolidated and complete reports in real time. Let’s better understand it with an example. In an organization which works manually, a new project arrives. So the management must know the availability of raw materials to do the project and complete it on time. For this matter, the management will ask for an updated report from the inventory department. Now when the inventory department sent the reports, their reports may not include the details and specifications of the already scheduled or pending jobs that will spend the raw materials from the already existing stock.
And so, the stock report is amended, but it gives ambiguous information to the management.
But when you install and implement an ERP software, all the information are consolidated in one single software where different department can easily access the information based on the roles and rights, Gaining complete information of the present situation of raw materials by just few clicks, can easily put scheduled jobs, present stock and pending works in 1 single report that will give them the actual raw material availability and make a decision about buying a new lot.
