Artificial Intelligence  – the Future Brain of Technology!

It is wisely said, “Life can only be understood backwards but lived forwards.”

It is 2020 and we’re on the cusp of an exciting and unexplored – technological revolution. Machine learning, the process of analysing and interpreting data and statistics is paving the way for content experiences that feel ‘humanly’ intuitive and make sense with our daily needs. We see a lot of this AI behaviour in the digital market already. For instance, when I have searched for hair vitalizer on Amazon, suddenly my feeds are drowning in it- but new developments will continue to streamline and refine this process.

To an entrepreneur, “automation” is equivalent to whispering sweet nothings in our ear. Fortunately, the miracle of automation has only just begun. In the near future we will see automation in 

 

  1. Business operations -like understanding the exact online journey our customers have gone through before we actually speak to them.
  2. Tedious accounting processes will be easier. 
  3. HR/payroll and other administrative programs will be executed without you having to even touch paperwork.

What if it is 2030, and your only aim is to see your company listed amongst the top notch. It’s a time when you need to make certain turning-point decisions that decides the future of your company. You are uncertain about some data and calculations but you know that AI has your back. You are assured that the system won’t fail you and help you take the perfect call on your behalf. Imagine the relief and stress-free life it would be then. Therefore one must be upgraded to be at par with the changing time and generation to fit in.

With AI, machine learning and automation representing the fast approaching next frontier, companies like ours, helps seamlessly integrate business processes and pioneering the path to digital utopia.

In the cut-throat competitive market, there is hardly any scope of monopoly. Adding value to your services and strong customer relations, provide advantage over competitions. Since the 1990’s ERP Software has emerged in the technology industry where today almost 90% of the mid-sized and big organisations have implemented ERP to automate their business processes. From the traditional on-premise ERP, Cloud based software took over completely as it was more cost-effective, practical and provided more freedom to the users. 2020, set in with an extremely promising future for the coming decade with Artificial Intelligence. The latest hum in the industry is that AI is about to shape the future of ERP. How true is that we are yet to fathom. At present it is at a very nascent stage to analyse

It is highly probable that AI will soon replace jobs involving repetitive or common problem solving tasks. AI systems will be making decisions instead of humans in industrial settings, customer service roles and within financial institutions. AI is the simulation of human intelligence or logical reasoning, in machines that are developed to think and behave like humans. The goals of AI include learning reasoning and perception. AI is constantly evolving for the benefit of many different industries. Algorithms are used to structure AI- simple or complex.

This technology is currently on probation. Myriad sectors and industries will be affected by the usage of AI. For example in the healthcare industry, AI is being used for dosing drugs and different treatments in patients and for surgical procedures in the operating room. Simply speaking, AI is building flexible computers that can take creative actions that maximise their chances of success to a specific goal.

According to Gartner, 80% of technology will be built on an AI foundation by 2021!

AI undoubtedly has the potential to bring in great changes to companies where the customer and operational data is primary to the business. Once business processes are streamlined and the data is ready, incorporating AI can lead to truly optimised efficiency levels.

The impact will be most prominent in process-heavy and data -intensive sectors that have the highest dependency on future predictions. AI can quite easily aid a company to streamline large volumes of data and turn a limitation into an opportunity. It can transform systems through creativity and agility.

Artificial Intelligence – the future of Intelligent Technologies

 

AI is transforming the way ERP functions. ERP is already one of the most indispensable innovations in technology. ERP integrated with AI will create magic. The addition of AI in ERP Systems makes them super powerful business management tools.

How will it benefit?
  1. Enhances the forecasting capacity- With AIR it becomes easier and quicker to identify problems or obstacles even before they occur. With it’s advanced algorithms it will be able to search and analyse the large data in the ERP system, identify the trends and predict the future consequences. This enables the users to foresee and prepares in advance if any problem occurs resulting in optimal efficiency.
  2. Follows a defined set of methodology – AI run ERP systems are programmed with a set of governing rules against each action. Intelligence applies these rules to make decisions that are more accurate and prompt than humans.
  3. Provides an extensively personalised user experience through interaction and function faster.

 

AI integrated with ERP systems have not fully arrived yet. Nevertheless Team Expand is all set to cater to your software needs to take your organisation to its highest level.

Satya Nadella, CEO Microsoft, rightly says, “If you don’t jump on the new, you don’t survive.”

This deprived customers of the advantage of dealing with a brand that was available in different channels. Omnichannel has transformed the customer experience by offering a unified experience to customers.

Investing in Enterprise Resource Planning for your Business.

ERP- THE NEED OF THE HOUR!

 

It is January 2020 the onset of a new decade. With the changing times we all move forward and upgrade ourselves to the new. It is an affirmation that you are living your life and believe in growth as only dreams give birth to change. 

Like in many other fields, the global business processing is going through a renaissance where everyone speaks of automation and digitisation. An ERP streamlines daily business processing such as accounting, procurement, project management, risk management and compliance and supply chain operations. This system ties together a multitude of business activities and enables the flow of data between them.

We all know “Rome was not built in a day” and so can’t be for your business process digitisation. It involves a lot of research and strategies to make a major decision such as to choose your Enterprise Resource Planning solution provider. The most common factor that arises in our mind is the cost.

How much does it cost to implement ERP in India? 

For any business, budget and cost-effectiveness is the key to growth and success. Choosing a suitable ERP provider could make or break your organisation. The objective of this post is to guide you how to choose an ERP software that’s best fit for your budget and business type. Adopting an ERP solution is not an expense but a long time investment for your business. Investing in an ERP System is in most cases a one time decision and hence a little time spent in reviewing multiple software before making a choice is advisable.

Implementing ERP is NOT sky-high!

 

When implementing ERP solutions to expedite business transformation, the owner or the decision maker should have a clear insight of the needs of its business. If you are one of the entrepreneurs who have not yet created a checklist, it’s time you unwrap the implementation challenges that are unique to your business goals.

 

ERP solution providers like Expand ERP provide one to one consultation with customers who require in-depth knowledge regarding the software. We help businesses to understand the needs and customise the software completely according to the requirements. The authoritative members, project team members and stakeholders should be aware about the critical elements affecting an ERP implementation cost.

There are various elements that are to be considered for ERP implementation:

 

    1. Scalability: The cost of ERP increases with the number of users who will be using it in the company.Training costs of the users is also depending on the numbers.
    2. Licensing: Here, the choice is totally yours. It is not compulsory to invest in a software license outright.The ERP license can be paid by monthly subscription based model also. Depending on the budget and requirements,the ERP license may be temporary or perpetual. The maintenance agreement is charged as a percentage of the license.
    3. Totally customised: Every organisation is unique and ERP implementation requires a lot of alterations and transformations which should fit into the business structure. It is best to implement a totally customised software which caters to all your organization’s unique needs.
    4. Nature of Business: Depending on the type of business -small, mid-sized or large the ERP cost is determined. For micro/ small organisations the annual cost of ERP could be anything between 6000-10,000 INR, as it is mostly online and there is no investment cost involved. For mid-sized businesses (manufacturers and wholesalers), ERP implementation starts from Rs 1,20,000 a year. The large segment businesses need to consider a budget from Rs 5,00,000 onwards annually.

According to a report,only 23% of the companies implement vanilla ERP with zero customisations done.

  1. Cost of Infrastructure: According to the deployment option-(on-premise or on-cloud option) the cost of infrastructure is based. For the cloud-based option cost will be low as all data will be stored on cloud and no hardware needs to be purchased. Further, the cost will be lower as less IT technicians will be employed .
  2. Recurrent Cost: This varies from vendor to vendor as some solution providers charge less initially but increases the cost at renewal. On average the renewal cost of ERP is 10%-15% of the total software cost.There are always chances of upgradation charges which can vary from time to time.

SUPPORT IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS

Choosing the right ERP System for a business is not only a pricing decision. It is 80% about considering the after sales support and training abilities. Your vendor should provide training to new employees and also upgrade old ones. If you are a manufacturing business in India, Expand ERP has the advantage of Low pricing and Local support on Installation and training.

MONEY SAVED IS MONEY EARNED

Investing in an ERP for your manufacturing business can increase production efficiencies, reduces the time taken by the Customers to pay, avoids pilferage of Inventory and help you get the necessary data to make decisions quickly. Investing in the right software will increase your profitability and your ability to increase your production capacity phenomenally. With Expand ERP you can take your organisation to the next level even sooner than you imagine. If you want an accurate estimate for your project, be sure to accurately scope your project and account for some of the most overlooked costs. Our team members in Expand  can help you set realistic expectations that won’t scare executives nor get you fired for causing budget overruns.

What to keep in mind while scoping your business before ERP implementation?

 

  • Complications of your business: It is advisable to keep an unbiased analysis of how complex your business requirements are. Many businesses need an entire ERP software solution (human resource,supply-chain,inventory etc). Companies which have lesser complexities may require only point solutions such as CRM or Finance and Accounting.
  • Change managing activities: The focus should not remain in one direction but also on business process reengineering. Any change in your business process will add to your cost on ERP at a later stage.
  • Similar business overview: We recommend comparing and considering similar organisations ERP vendors and expenses and not set a benchmark to what a particular solution provider may have set for you.

 

The license fee and technician costs is just one side of the coin to view before implementation of ERP. You need to consider the broader aspects to ensure your software investment delivers value.

Some tips to control costs:

 

  1. Clear view and analysis of cost from vendor (ensure no hidden costs)
  2. Develop a project plan with detailed estimates
  3. Include change or unexpected costs
  4. Carefully strategies and wisely judge your vendor
  5. Prices can be negotiated
