ERP systems typically cover financial, human resources, supply chain management, production, and other key business areas to ensure effective operations and informed business decision-making.

What are the applications of ERP?

For example, a manufacturing company needs to manage its end-to-end production plan. From raw material procurement, production processes, inventory management, financial transactions, to customer after-sales service, ERP systems use a modular approach to support business processes. In this scenario, modules such as manufacturing, supply chain, procurement, finance, and sales are utilized based on the company’s specified processes, enhancing operational efficiency.

SAP, as the world’s largest ERP management system, serves as an example by providing various modules for enterprises to manage internal finances, raw materials, and production systems.
