Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Implementation

An ERP system is probably one of the most complex technology systems deployed at any agency. An ERP system offers a vast set of functionalities including Accounting, Human Resources, Finance, Payroll, Workforce Management, Grants Management, Supply Chain Management and many others. A properly designed, configured and maintained ERP system can provide an integrated and continuously updated view of core business processes and information throughout the agency. An ERP system has the ability to transform an agency by improving collaboration, increasing productivity and increasing customer satisfaction. However, an improper or failed ERP implementation can have a drastic impact on the agency operations.
