Xentral: Your ERP system
What does ERP mean?
The abbreviation ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning and refers to a concept for the holistic planning, control and monitoring of resources in a company. With the help of ERP, business processes such as procurement, production and accounting are managed and optimized centrally. This ensures greater transparency and control over processes and gives you more time for the important things.

Introducing an ERP solution: what you should look out for
#1 Adapted to your requirements
ERP systems often offer such a wide range of functions that the complexity increases rapidly. An efficient system then quickly becomes a hurdle for your employees, as the range of functions is too large and the operation too complex. Define your requirements for the software at the outset and make sure that the system meets your needs.
The business software should make your everyday life easier and promote your company's growth. When choosing an ERP system, pay attention to the scalability of the software. With a cloud ERP system that adapts to your needs and grows with you, you can avoid growing pains in the future.
#3 Intuitive operation
An ERP program must be user-friendly and offer a uniform appearance so that your employees are supported in their day-to-day work and processes are optimized. A shared database and intuitive data visualization support you and your employees.
#4 Easy integration
There are tons of software applications in a company. You may not want to start from scratch and link your ERP solution with existing systems and data sources. Make sure that the integration of the business software into existing structures is flexible and cost-effective.
Simple integration is best achieved if your business software offers interfaces to common third-party applications. Make sure that you get as comprehensive a view of your company as possible by linking all the tools in your company.
