Top 6 robust ERP software tools to work from home effectively

Workplaces everywhere are implementing and expanding programs to help their employees work remotely. With the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention predicting that Covid 19 effects could carry onto to 2021, it’s likely that remote work will remain a trend for the year to come as countries try to flatten the curve of exposure. In light of a possible new status quo, here are 6 essential tools for working from home to make the change easier for manufacturing companies to run their organisation smoothly.

The idea of operating your business online and transitioning your employees to remote work can seem daunting. With any upheaval of the traditional on-site work experience, there is a learning curve and transition period that can be perplexing to managers. While it is necessary to address these concerns and note the challenges faced, it is also important to acknowledge that online businesses and remote work are here to stay. 

By creating a remote work policy at your company, you will be communicating to your existing employees that their personal productivity and happiness is a priority. When you retain and hire skilled, innovative employees with your comprehensive remote work policy, you’ll be inadvertently building a more diverse and inclusive workforce with lower overheads. To be successful in your market, it is critical to have an insight of what your customers need. In this increasingly tech savvy modern workforce, those needs often include an expectation that your product or services are available online. If you are waiting for the day your customers tell you that they want you to move online, you’ve already lost them. In addition to retaining your existing customers, expanding your visibility by moving online guarantees that you will reach new potential ones.

Thus, it is proven that in order to sustain this market, moving online is the only option.

A best fit ERP software which is robust, comprehensive, agile and homegrown is the one solution that solves all your requirements. Expand ERP is India’s best fit ERP software for the mid sized manufacturers in export and retail industry.

In this article we will be citing 6 best tools that you would require to work from home and operate your business completely online:

Whatsapp integration  – WhatsApp is NOW integrated with your ERP !

 

With the advancement of technology each day, the newest trend in ERP software is the WhatsApp integration with ERP. Effective communication is a crucial aspect of every business. In the work environment, it creates unity, sharing of feedback, improved customer relations, employee engagement and enhanced innovation. However, in the daily grind, communication often gets missed. Users might forget to communicate important aspects among each other or customers. They may not send invoices after selling goods, or purchase orders after placing an order or might not inform others to complete their tasks once they have completed their own. This affects the business process in several ways – payment collection gets delayed, because ledgers didn’t get sent when customers asked for them, purchase orders may have not been received on time etc. Revenues get affected, operations and transactions get stagnant resulting in mayhem in management.This scenario can be totally avoided by the implementation of WhatsApp integrated to your ERP business software.

It is undeniably the quickest and most widely used communication tool in the Indian business market. Now, the integration of ERP – the ultimate business automation software integrated with the quickest communication App together will create magic.

 

The way it works:-

Step1: Through a downloadable connector, a whatsApp activation mechanism should be set.

Step 2:   Once activated, a QR Code scanner will open up in your ERP desktop.

Step 3: The QR Code can be scanned using WhatsApp on your phone.

Step 4: This will allow you to use WhatsApp to send messages and documents directly from   your ERP

5 innovative mobile Apps – 

The good news is even our best fit ERP software is available on your mobile phone now.A legacy system fails to offer you the accessibility, the reach or even the collaboration that a mobile-enabled ERP provides. It is a solution that is created uniquely for mobile accessibility in terms of data dissection.

Lead Management  –

It is imperative to manage leads and sales of your business diligently for ultimate growth and ROI. Without customers there is no business and without business an organisation is dead, no matter how organised or good the product is. Taking control of your sales process, reaching out to leads at the right time and converting them into actual opportunities by staying focused on your best deals will ensure an edge above in the competitive market.

Highly secure payment gateways, advanced back end workflows, and a whole range of tools help customize modules for superior results.

Information flow becomes easier in your organisation with integration tools. Technology is not just the enabler of new experiences in the digital era, but a bridge of seamless integrations that enhance customer experience. Retailers earlier relied on multiple channels of engagement with customers that worked independently of each other. Typically, brands that were available online as well as in-store treated each channel as separate. Online purchases of a product could only be dealt through online interactions, while in-store purchases had nothing to do with online interactions. This multichannel engagement deprived customers of the advantage of dealing with a brand that was available in different channels.

Logistics –

Warehouse automation software of Expand ERP  comes with pre-integrated shipment partners. You can choose the desired logistics partner and assign the delivery of orders. There is no need for more hunting for shipment partners, negotiations and following up. With one click you can assign the order shipment and track it.

Without shipping and logistics, import & export of bulk goods & amenities across the world would not be possible.

For managing all these processes, the company needs a robust and a scalable solution which will give the company a single view of all their processes and prepare reports according to what the management wants. Customized reports, seamless processes and actionable data helping make strategic decisions on the go is what the management should look at while getting a business solution. Expand ERP has partnered with Blue dart and Shiprocket for the logistics and shipment to make it easier for your export company to deliver products hasslefree.

Attachments are used to supplement and provide key additional information to enhance daily business operations and better tracking of financial transactions.

Business enterprises often require the capability to efficiently associate specific attachments with a particular business entity or collection of business entities. For example:

  • Payables invoices may need to be associated with supporting documents such as duplicate invoices, payments, etc.
  • Account receivables transactions may need to be linked to customer-centric documents
  • Purchase orders may need supplementary files attached to indicate additional details related to specific goods or services procured or the nature of the overall purchase

  • Just at the click of your smartphone/device you can access any document remotely. It is like carrying your office wherever you go.
  • If required any document can be shared instantly within the organisation.
  • Errors or updations can be made instantly if and when any occurs.

A few weeks ago, our client Mr. Gautam was on a flight and decided to use the downtime to catch up on email. He couldn’t turn on his phone’s data connection, but since he had his phone configured to download messages as they arrive, he figured that he could read and respond to his messages even without connectivity. His responses would be sent the next time he had a data connection.

Of course Murphy’s Law came into play and one of the messages included an attachment that he couldn’t open. Since he had no data connection, he had no way of downloading an app to open the attachment until he got where he was going – and that made him think about moving to best in class technology that should be installed on mobile devices so that you can open the most common types of email attachments.

Expand ERP is the best ERP solution in India for mid sized manufacturers in the export and retail industry.

Expand File Attachment mobile erp software App is a boon to any Expand ERP software user. It is a single system which increases productivity and drives optimal growth of your business remotely. It is an absolute need of the hour where maintaining social distancing is equally important as surviving in the competitive market amongst the economic slump.
