You may be planning big changes in your business, launching new product lines, expanding into new regions, or offering other value-added services to your customers.  As you plan for growth, be sure to plan changes to your business management solutions.  While your business can grow, your entry-level software can’t.

Business growth is often a natural process as marketing efforts start to pay off, products or services are enjoyed by a growing list of customers, and you move into new areas.  As you expand product lines and hire new employees to keep up the pace of growth, you may begin to notice problems with business systems.  Entry-level accounting systems can’t often support many users or high volumes of data.  In addition, disparate, specialty software, such as inventory management or supply chain systems, create delays with data-sharing, which makes it difficult to respond quickly to customer needs or marketplace conditions.

Before your business systems begin to hamper the very growth you are trying to achieve, deploy a business system that can grow and change as your business grows and changes.  A robust enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, such as Microsoft Dynamics® GP, can support your business as it changes over time.  You can manage all of your business operations from this integrated solution including financials, inventory and supply chain, manufacturing and distribution operations, human resources and payroll activities, and other core business processes.  You can use this powerful solution to connect multiple business locations and manage financial and other processes separately, by location, while also maintaining a full view of your business as a whole.

Today’s ERP solutions were designed to handle higher volumes of data, as well as more users, than many specialty software programs.  These innovative solutions are also tailored to specific industry types, such as manufacturing or distribution, retail, ecommerce, healthcare, and others.  In addition, you can customize Microsoft Dynamics GP to address unique business operations or use add-on features to gain greater insight and control over specific processes.

As you plan for business growth, consider updating your business management system.  Contact Premier Computing, Inc. for guidance with choosing and deploying an ERP solution that can meet your business needs today and with continued growth into the future.
