Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

Why Us

Our approach to ERP Software selection and integration ensures your users have access to your data anytime, anywhere.
erp-crm-armanino

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions offer an integrated view of your core business functions from supply (manufacturing, operations, and personnel) to demand (sales, service and fulfillment). ERP software allows cross-department data visibility and ensures a single source of truth for business operations: orders, production, supplier and vendor management, and financial management.

The decision to pursue a new ERP system is typically driven by an increase in the overall complexity of the business (be it planned or unplanned, sudden or cumulative) that in turn exceeds the organization’s current ERP Software System’s capabilities.

Important ERP Selection criteria for your organization to consider when selecting new ERP software:

  • New functional requirements – A new ERP system can help you manage the new requirements driven by business growth, M&A activity, and new business models
  • System integration requirements – The use of relevant, industry-specific third party applications requires easy integration with your general ledger – a new ERP can deliver seamless integration with multiple systems.
  • New technical accounting requirements – If revenue recognition, amortization and depreciation method requirements can’t be met with your current financial solution, look to an ERP system.
  • Compliance concerns – SOX compliance requires role-driven permissions, configurable segregation of duties, audit trails and other IT controls a standard general ledger can’t provide.
  • New global operations – If your multi-currency, multi-language and/or multi-entity consolidation requirements exceed your current system capabilities, seek a flexible, dynamic ERP software solution.
  • Too many spreadsheets – When Excel spreadsheets are your system of record, auditors frown on it, management doesn’t trust it and teams waste too much time manipulating and managing data.

Armanino’s ERP implementation partners work as an integrated part of your organization to map your critical business processes and customize the ERP solution that will best meet your needs. Our industry and finance experts have walked in your shoes and utilize their experience to ensure a smooth transition from your current system of record to a powerful, integrated ERP software solution. Armanino has hundreds of client success stories to share with you. Contact us today to learn how we can customize a solution to meet your unique business needs.
