What is an ERP?
ERP is an acronym that stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. But what does that really mean? ERP software is designed to help companies manage their business operations, providing visibility into available resources, whether financial, labor, time, materials or other aspects needed. Organizations use ERP software to streamline the complexity of business processes such as taking orders, scheduling plant activity, tracking raw materials, and compliance reporting. Virtually every organization with more than a few employees uses some form of ERP. It’s a competitive disadvantage if a company isn’t leveraging ERP effectively.

What is the difference between MRP and ERP?
Before the introduction of ERP, Material Requirements Planning (MRP) software was developed to help manufacturers keep track of what parts and components were needed to complete orders, and make sure those raw materials were on hand to support production demands. MRP expanded and evolved into ERP with the addition of applications to connect other areas of the business such as financial, sales and production operations. By integrating MRP into an end-to-end business management software solution, companies improve visibility and collaboration across the organization.
