What to Expect From ERP in 2016
by: BAASS Editor | January 06, 2016

Enterprise resource planning software is a core tool for businesses. In the ever-changing ever-changing world of technology is helpful to understand where trends are pushing us forward so you can be prepared. A few things to look forward to in the coming year in ERP are:

  • More Mobility – It is predicted that in the next 12 months the only computing device you will need will be a smartphone. This of course demands more mobility out of ERP. Today’s professionals, regardless of industry or size of business, are working from their mobile devices, both in the office and in the field. Expect more apps to make ERP mobile use user-friendly.
  • It’s all about the cloud – more and more, companies are moving their ERP applications to the cloud. Although it is predicted that on-site ERP will unlikely eliminate the need for hybrids and more cloud options is imminent.
  • Easy to use platforms – Users have spoken and technology is answering by creating intuitive, user-friendly platforms. Driven by the adoption of mobility, the use of smaller screens and multiple devices demand user-friendly interfaces created with the user’s approach to software in mind.
  • Social enabled – Social media is a trend that sees no signs of going anywhere. With it comes the need for integrated social media ERP which will facilitate customer interactions with ease.
  • Customization – With the introduction of customization, more and smaller to mid-sized companies are moving to ERP. No longer is ERP just for large scale organizations. Smaller companies can now customize the software to meet their unique business needs as they grow.
