ERP Software, what it is and why it is fundamental for businesses

ERP is an acronym that stands for Enterprise Resource Planning, or enterprise resource planning, and identifies a management software that integrates all the relevant business processes and functions, such as sales, purchasing, warehouse management, of finance or accounting.

Defined by some as the “central nervous system of the company“, the ERP software collects all company activities in a single system to best support the company’s management. Thanks to the use of this tool, data from multiple parts and sectors of the company are brought together and managed in a centralized manner.

The possibilities that an ERP management system offers are truly multiple: to name just a few, there are the control of inventories, order tracking, management of customer services, of finance and of human resources. In short, ERP management software covers all the areas that can be automated and/or monitored internally within a company, allowing users belonging to the different company sectors to operate in a coherent and integrated context, regardless of the area they belong to.

Recently, ERPs have started to introduce features that exploit the immense potential of artificial intelligence and machine learning, to support you in real time in managing your business and predict how to move better in the future. With such a wealth of data and functionality at your disposal, you are able to instantly know what is happening in every business sector and at every moment, as well as the causes and origins of why this is happening. Thanks to the new capabilities of AI, management tools are now capable of autonomously analysing, learning and predicting the risks and opportunities facing the company.

Most common uses

Enterprise Resource Planning software is composed of a large variety of different modules, each of which is dedicated to a specific process or business sector. Each module, being connected to the central ERP system and having access to the information collected from all the other sectors, provides users with the data they need to best carry out their role.


The sales module allows the tracking of communications with current and potential customers, allowing salespeople to access in-depth analyzes based on the data collected to intercept new contacts with targeted promotions and opportunities. It also includes features that are distributed across the entire sales cycle, from order management to contracts, from invoicing to sales performance management, up to sales force support.


The finance and accounting module is the backbone of most ERP systems. In addition to automating financial operations, it allows the tracking of supplier accounts and customer receivables, the possibility of carrying out accounting closures efficiently, generating financial statements quickly and accurately, complying with revenue recognition rules, mitigating risk financial and much more.


The module dedicated to sourcing and procurement supports companies in sourcing the raw materials and services necessary to produce their goods or items to resell.

This helps you minimize over- and under-purchasing, optimize supplier negotiations through AI-supported analytics, and connect with buyer networks.
