How many applications do you use to balance the daily activities of your business? You have accounting, inventory, sales, project management, HR, production, IT, and more. Some organizations use as many as a dozen different applications to run their business. That’s a lot of data, a lot of upkeep, a lot of training, and a lot of money. What if you had one application that could do it all?

Enterprise resourcing planning software, or ERPs, consolidate your processes and your disparate software systems into one customized, intelligent application that can be accessed across your organization. There are off-the-shelf ERPs, but a custom ERP is the go-to solution for businesses that want software that is uniquely their own. They have become commonplace in manufacturing, but that isn’t the only industry that can benefit from the cost savings, collaboration, and improved customer service that custom software development makes possible.

Whether you work in real estate, transportation, defense, or even healthcare, a custom ERP can give you the missing piece your business needs to make it happen. Our team has built dozens of custom ERPs. Discover some of the features we can implement to help you maximize your potential.

Enhanced Efficiency

The most popular reason organizations like yours turn to a custom ERP is for improved efficiency. The manual processes your employees have to partake in every single day—from inventory counts to customer follow-ups—can be replaced with automated processes. Repetitive tasks are eliminated and your employees have more time and effort to devote to other initiatives that can help your organization grow.

Transparency Across Your Organization

With a custom ERP, any process your organization undertakes will be visible to every department across your business. All employees will have insight into sales goals, production, inventory levels, and more. Opening this data up to fresh pairs of eyes will spur new ideas, enhance decision making, and encourage collaboration across departments to help improve numbers, goals, and processes.

Strong Reporting & Data-Driven Decisions

A custom ERP provides you with unlimited data, right at your fingertips. This data on your sales, production, customer satisfaction, revenue, etc. will be displayed in a detailed dashboard that anyone can access. Information is integrated, standardized, and in real-time. See year-over-year comparisons or valuable sales forecasts.

When you have this data at your disposal, you can make more confident decisions on the future of your business. What good is data if you can’t act on it?

Improved Customer Service

When efficiency is approved across your organization, your employees have more time to devote to bettering your customer experience. Where can improvements be made? Meanwhile, when information is accurate, when client data is streamlined, and when marketing is targeted by your custom ERP, you can provide a better customer experience from beginning to end.

Limitless Customization & Scalability

You want an application that grows with your organization. Off-the-shelf applications too often contain your organization and its goals in a box. On the other hand, with their custom features, detailed reporting, tight security, cost-saving measures, and flexibility, a custom ERP can help you plan for the future. Adding new functionality for new departments, new services, or new customers is simple.

Discover the benefits of a custom ERP for yourself. Having built applications for the medical, real estate, and manufacturing industries, we can help your organization build a custom application that will take your efficiency, security, and flexibility to new heights.
