Growing Pains: The impact of business growth on ERP Strategy

Growth. Expansion. More sales. More profits. This is what every business wants and tries to achieve. And a great many businesses are very successful in doing just that, whether through well executed sales strategies, diversification, acquisition or expansion into new territories.

A growing organisation will experience many challenges, and how systems support the business is likely to be one of these. Increased business generally means greater volumes of transactions and increased levels of activity. That could in turn mean more people are required to deal with the extra work load. But what if more efficient processes, enabled by better systems, could support that growth without a pro rata increase in headcount? What if manual processes could be automated? What if the business systems landscape was optimised to support growth as efficiently and effectively as possible?
