Everyone is connected! And companies can now gain access to their ERP system through mobile devices securely. Our previous discussion focused on the benefits found by sales personnel who can remotely access ERP & CRM data. In part two of our discussion, we will focus on industry specific benefits that can be gained.
While we all know that mobile devices have allowed employees to become much more efficient. However, many companies still require employees to be sitting at a work centre to access & input data. By mobilizing your ERP system, one can differentiate themselves from competitors & reduce costs.
Mail carriers have been recording your signature upon receipt for years, but what other uses can be found by mobilizing your ERP?
Consultants or engineers can assign their time to projects or input travel expenses all while waiting to catch a flight. Busy logistics professionals can supervise deliveries & shipments without being close to the warehouse. Maintenance staff in the utilities sector can be remotely tracked & that data directly visible in system reporting. Those working with chemicals would have instant access to quality & safety processes.
WebSan has found that companies that effectively implement mobilized solutions realized significant cost savings. Contact WebSan today to arrange an evaluation of your industry specific needs.
I wanted to take an opportunity to discuss an article I recently wrote for our monthly WebSan newsletter. The article discusses utilizing mobile devices to access one’s ERP system. Since mobile devices have become so common, software companies have made great efforts to make their systems available on these devices.
Here is a quick excerpt:
Salespeople by nature are always away from the office. As such, most CRM applications are also now available on mobile devices. When combined with the ability to view data straight from ones ERP, salespeople are enabled to make the best offer to the customer in order to win business. Salespeople can view real-time data on extended pricing, sales history & quantities on hand help make their pitch. The ability to view unpaid invoices, credit limits & payment information can help resolve disputes. And by viewing inventory data on size, weight or other user-defined information, one can help solve the customer’s complex purchasing needs. All while taking less time to fill out papers & allowing more time to be spent selling product.
Part two can be found in our next newsletter & discusses many of the benefits that can be derived from everyday business professional using mobile technologies. Visit our website to sign up for our monthly newsletter containing new articles every edition.
