Make Enterprise Resource Planning a Reality

BizNet, Sage 100 and Acumatica Cloud ERP Offer Complete Solutions

Everywhere you turn these days it seems as if companies are talking about the importance of “seamless integration” among various systems during enterprise resource planning implementation. While it’s true that seamless integration is the ideal, it’s not always the reality. Managers often struggle to consolidate and report data from multiple systems. Despite their best efforts, this process often results in inaccurate data fueling reports used for business decisions. The results, as you can imagine, are less than spectacular.

So what’s the solution? It’s often hard to get disparate systems to “play nice” with each other and work well behind the scenes. Spreadsheets aren’t a good long-term solution, either. The best solution is an integrated enterprise resource planning system that’s actually built with integration in mind. Two such ERP software packages are Sage 100 and Acumatica.

An ERP provides one central location for all information so that there is a single point of control for data, eliminating duplicate data entry and ensuring data integrity. Although this might be an ideal solution, some companies wish to retain legacy systems and may need a bridge between their ERPs.

Many companies face similar problems According to a BizNet survey:

  • Most companies use multiple applications. More than 80% of survey respondents have at least three process management applications (such as ERP, CRM, expense accounting, and project management). In fact, 20% have 6 or more systems
  • Spreadsheets remain a preferred method of filling gaps between systems. 75% of respondents to the survey states that they use Excel two to fives times per week to consolidate data from multiple systems.

Microsoft Excel is the most popular analysis and reporting tool. Why do so many choose Excel? Another study provides the answer:

  • 68%–easy to create analytics
  • 60%–easy to create graphics
  • 67%–easier to build than alternative tools
  • 64%–easy to format
  • 66%–easy to share
