Mobile ERP Benefits

Having accessibility to real-time information helps workers in the field make better decisions in a shorter amount of time, while keeping those at headquarters better connected to staff working outside the tradition office environment.

The way people do business is changing. No longer are workers logging hours on a fixed schedule in a designated office space-they’re on the go and taking work with them. Companies need a way to empower workforces with the necessary tools and information to get the job done, whether in a boardroom or at a remote location.

The solution businesses are turning to is mobile ERP. Being able to access and operate with company data whenever and wherever via smartphone, tablet, or a laptop also increases productivity. Having accessibility to real-time information helps workers in the field make better decisions in a shorter amount of time, while keeping those at headquarters better connected to staff working outside the tradition office environment.

Let’s look at what a mobile ERP can do for companies that are ready and willing to innovate.

Empowering the workforce

It’s clear that mobile access to company resources and information benefits employees. They’re able to log in in real-time while on the road for business travel or from their home offices. Now, employees are able to refine work outside of traditional business hours.

Aside from increasing employee efficiency, mobile ERP applications also have the ability to improve business processes. Mobile ERP reduces risk by connecting workers and providing employers with ways to communicate out into the field in real-time. The possibilities for utilizing this handy feature are endless, but could, for example, include notifications about delivery troubles or environmental hazards. Having a solution that can be accessed from any device quickly and easily can dramatically circumvent such risks.

Providing this type of flexibility benefits not only individual staff, but also the company as a whole. Employees will be better informed to make critical decisions–often with access to predictive analytics–which can save organizations both time and money.

Innovation brings growth

Having access to company information and data helps employees to better communicate with customers at any time and place, mitigating issues before damage occurs. Keeping customers in the loop as issues arise improves trust and satisfaction–both of which can improve the company’s overall customer satisfaction, and ultimately, brand loyalty.

With communication and real-time updates, all departments and funnels will be in the know, relating consistent messaging to clients. Happy customers typically mean happier workers, as well. When the workforce isn’t running around needlessly attempting to put out fires, they can better achieve their goals with greater efficiency.

Project management becomes easier thanks to mobile ERP apps that encourage positive workflow, notifying teams when tasks are moving through the pipeline. Employees can be alerted when an item is awaiting their approval or attention. This cuts down on traditional processes that can waste a lot of time. Emails are reduced and staff are able to avoid scheduling timely meetings to stay informed. The software simply sends an alert to a worker’s smartphone, improving the worker’s and company’s competitive advantage.
