5 Signs You Need an ERP Solution

Written by Ashley Brown 09/24/19


When you partner with Kopis to evaluate, replace or upgrade your legacy accounting systems, you partner with a team of consultants with decades of experience figuring out how to get the right information to the right people at the right time—and the skillset to deliver precisely what your company needs most.

Frank Greer, Zipit Wireless CEO and Kopis Client said it best:

“I spent 2-3 days/month assembling data and producing reports. Now I can see sales, growth, retention, customer churn, financials, commissions, all in one place. I can’t even begin to explain what a relief this solution has been for me, personally. It’s increased productivity for the entire staff, but mostly for me.”

Do you have plenty of data, but can’t easily make observations or reports from it? Is it hard to find exactly what you’re looking for?

Take complex tasks like quoting, job costing, inventory management and budgeting out of Excel; our ERP (enterprise resource planning) solution can streamline it all. Information can be rather difficult to obtain when using more than one system. When information is in one central location, the chance for redundancy significantly decreases, and no more of your time is spent trying to find something or recreating something that already exists. 

With an ERP system in place, up-to-date information is right at your fingertips; you won’t have to ask for access to information thus eliminating the middle man. No more information stored exclusively on hard drives. With an ERP system, save storage and keep your information in the cloud.

Does it feel like you’re throwing away time and money?

The slower the transfer of data is, typically that means the cash flow will be slower too. When there isn’t a cohesive system in place, it takes long to pull everything together. This could mean going through tabs on spreadsheets to extract particular information or waiting on a response from a colleague regarding the where-a-bouts to proceed with gathering information. 

Reformatting information from one program to another is also time consuming which can also contribute to eating away at your cash flow rate. The bigger the gaps in data flow, the slower the payments get received and processed. Stop throwing away time and money and ensure that you’re getting the most value by implementing an ERP solution!

Is business growing too fast for you to keep up with or the pace at which your company is producing data is accelerating daily?

Organizations, small and large, that have outgrown their existing solutions and don’t invest in robust, integrated ERP solutions end up spending time on error prone, repetitive tasks that may ultimately end up in messy and non-compliant financials. Inconsistent data is also nearly impossible to measure and analyze effectively, so companies miss out on any insights their data might yield. Improve business processes that are stifling growth and profitability.

Is the overall customer experience suffering?

Tired of limiting some users and giving too much access to others? Take back your security with granular controls that prevent leaks regardless of how users access the data. ERP will give customers the luxury of working with one person rather than being transferred around to different people for different information. ERP will help you make sure your deadlines are met, manage dates, and monitor transactions which helps both you and the customer by making everything more transparent.

Can’t find anything that perfectly fits your company?

Incredible technology breakthroughs happen everyday. Our team brings depth of knowledge and strong technical backgrounds to dream up solutions with client leadership. We see each client as a brand-new opportunity to partner together in doing something remarkable, seeing beyond the initial challenge, and building things others can’t! 

We have multiple plan options that work with you! Two of those options are a “self start” which is oriented towards companies with former consultants who only need the basic configurations to get started or a “smart start” which is oriented to companies who want the opportunity to grow functionality later as more of a long term project.

We believe you’ll discover a unique difference between our team and most custom software development firms. Much like them, our first few years, we were simply working hard “in the business.” However, after two decades, the business is in us.
