Why Mobile-First is a Good Idea for Your ERP Solution?

School Management Software

This post provides a brief list of reasons for those of you who are still not convinced about mobile-centric ERP solutions. We shall look at some very practical benefits of a mobile ERP platform.

Mobile workplaces are the future

Smartphones are everywhere and people are increasingly getting used to the idea of doing all their work right from their phones. Messaging, tweeting, sharing, forwarding, browsing, shopping, listening to music, watching movies, reading books – the mobile platform has given us the freedom to do what we want when we want.

Access data from any location and at any time

You can now access information about your business from anywhere. You do not need a desktop or laptop to pull up the software and get the reports you need. For instance, our School Management Software and Gym Management Software, among others, come with built-in apps that allow you to access all the information you need at any time.

Get the right picture – real-time

The app allows you to see real-time data and reports as soon as someone feeds in the information. Suppose you need to see the daily receipts for your car rental business. With a mobile-ready ERP product, you can get this information by simply opening your app and seeing the reports. These reports are updated automatically and immediately after a driver or a customer pays the bill. This means you get to see the information you need right after each ride.

Make the most of your money

Getting an ERP product can be cheap or costly depending on what you are looking for. The more complex the features you need, the more will the solution cost. This means that you need to see returns on your investment as soon as possible. With a mobile-centric solution, maintaining records becomes a breeze as nearly everything is interlinked and automated, and you save tremendously in terms of manpower you would otherwise need to do the reporting or keeping a tab on the data.

Customise as required

Unlike a traditional ERP solution that came as a package with a set number of features, the ERP software solutions company can build you a modular product. This means you get what you exactly need instead of features that you do not require. Suppose you run a car rental company, you are more likely to need a feature that allows you to see how many customers you got each day, a feature not required for a B2B logistics fleet company. With a mobile ERP solution, you can get the app customised the way you want.

These are but a few of the points why a mobile ERP works better for you. For more details on why mobile-first is a good strategy for your ERP solution, give us a call or send us a mail, and we can tell you how to maximize your investments.
