Back to Basics: ERP for CEOs

Why Do CEOs Need an ERP?

An ERP helps CEOs and senior executives make better strategic business decisions by supplying them with comprehensive, timely, and reliable internal data. A good ERP allows senior management to leverage hundreds of built-in metrics, KPIs, and reports to improve their team’s performance and move their business forward.

ERP Benefits for CEOs

1. Better Decision Making

Arguably, the biggest factor in making decisions is having access to the right data


A 2015 study found that one in three companies cited not having access to timely internal data as a key factor in making bad decisions.


To remain competitive and viable as a small- to mid-sized manufacturer, your business strategy needs to be driven by clear, comprehensive, and timely information. With the marketplace moving faster than ever before, the price of raw goods fluctuating, and ever-changing developments in trade policy and the manufacturing industry, you need an ERP system to help you stay on top of, and move your organization forward.


A good ERP gives you access to crucial real-time data and facts, to help you make better strategic decisions. An ERP will let you access, aggregate, and analyze data to help you understand your business better to make more informed decisions, create a more efficient shop, and be confident that the path you have chosen is the right one for your business.

2. Improved Cost Savings

At the end of the day, keeping more money in the company coffers is the goal. Though ERPs may seem like a costly investment upfront, they will help you save money in the long term. 


ERPs help your business become more efficient, which translates to more money in your pocket. ERPs help you streamline your organization and processes, meaning better supply chain management and inventory control, as well as lower labor costs, which all translate into greater profits for your company. 



3. Enhanced Customer Experience

Keeping customers happy is the most important thing you can do to ensure repeat business. 


If your customers like what you are doing, they are more likely to stay loyal — and recommend you to other businesses. Even though your customers will never directly interact with your ERP system, it is a vital tool in creating better customer experiences


As your ERP helps you to streamline and make your business more efficient, you will offer more fair and consistent pricing, deliver a more consistent product, improve your service levels and delivery standards, as well as increase your customer service response times, all of which will leave you with more satisfied customers. And these happy customers will reward you by placing bigger orders, more often, leading to more business for you.
