Why should I choose an ERP specific to my industry?

This blog examines why it's key for companies to use business management solutions and ERP products that are specific to their industry.

Running a business is not a small feat. You have to think about every aspect of your business, from employment to finances to technology and more. That’s why choosing to use an Enterprise Resource Planning system, or ERP, is a smart idea that benefits both you and your business.

Effective ERP systems support a large range of business functions. Whether you need insight on sales analytics or stats on your employees, a good ERP system can provide you with all of this useful information in one place. They also help ensure that your entire team is on the same page when it comes to goals and business objectives.

Generic business ERP systems are good, but they lack elements that are specific to your industry. Generic ERP systems can certainly perform basic functions, but when it comes to getting the nitty-gritty information that matters, it might not always be presented in the best way for your specific business. For example, if you’re in manufacturing, you might want a more in-depth and customized system to keep precise track of how much time is spent on certain processes. Or, if you’re a retailer with multiple locations, you want to keep track of your inventory in real time so you know when to replenish and when to move inventory around. More benefits of choosing an industry-specific ERP system include:

  • Lower implementation costs – you won’t need to spend money customizing a generic ERP system to fit your industry-specific needs.

  • Shorter implementation time – you don’t need to tinker around with a generic system to set up the industry-related metric you care about.

  • Less frustration – your ERP system is made for your industry, so you don’t need to discern which options actually work for your business and which aren’t applicable.

Since ERP systems work across a variety of business functions, investing in one that’s specific to your industry only makes sense. Whether it be inventory control, warehouse management, stock management, or another aspect of your business, having an industry-specific version of this software ready to go makes the implementation process and user experience significantly better for everyone involved.
