When inconsistencies permeate throughout your business, issues slip through the cracks. It is hard to recognize errors because you don’t have a clear vision of how you should be doing things. In contrast, mistakes are blatantly obvious in companies that have ironclad business processes where everything is being done the same way. When you create consistent business processes, your team will generate fewer mistakes and be able to spot issues quickly before they become million-dollar problems. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) allows you to take control of your business processes for maximum outcomes. Here are a few ways ERP improves consistency in your business processes.
Consistency is one of the biggest benefits ERP can bring to your business processes. With the right system and the right setup, you can require everyone to complete business processes in the same order and make it so they must input required data fields. Having uniform work expectations makes it easier for employees to follow directions and for managers to compare production speeds between workers. Comparing results is easy with an ERP because the system lets you generate reports to stay on target with your KPI objectives. If you want the consistency an ERP can offer, work with an expert consultant like Datix. We support our clients every step of the way on their ERP journey, from the planning to the implementation and beyond. Learn what Datix can do for you.
Automation makes business processes easier and decreases the likelihood of human error. With an ERP, it is simple to automate routine work and mundane tasks so your employees can focus on utilizing their skills. Workers can log receiving or shipping items within moments using a barcode scanner and you can set up workflow automation for tasks like creating invoices, documenting regulatory information, reordering supplies, quoting, and notifying customers about deliveries. When your ERP is set up correctly, it takes the data you input and does the work for you. You also have a complete record of all actions taking place in your system and you can automatically alert your team of important changes, like when there is an engineering change for executing a task. Automation streamlines business processes and can unlock the potential of your business. Work with a one-stop shop like Datix to learn how to implement or improve your ERP so it incorporates the automation tools you need.

Business Process Modeling
When you are reviewing your business processes, they must be consistent, but you also need to ensure that they are optimized and track the necessary information through business process modeling. Even if everyone executes your business processes perfectly, you will still waste time and resources if your system has unnecessary steps in it. An ERP implementation or upgrade is the ideal time to reflect on simplifying your business processes. As we mentioned, features like automation can streamline your systems so your team does less and produces better results. Using business process modeling, you can identify weak points and map out how your processes should be done now and in the future. Companies shouldn’t remain stagnant, so planning ahead for necessary adjustments as your business grows is the smart way to move your organization forward.
