A Cloud-based Enterprise resource planning system is considered beneficial to different users. This is because it facilitates the flow of information between departments by centralizing and unifying organizational data. According to Stephen Harwood, the author of ERP: The Implementation Cycle, enterprise resource planning benefits the CEO, managers, and employees, by providing unified real-time data that can be used in organizational decision-making. The following are some of the benefits that users of ERP can gain from the system.
Reduced Work Duplication
The ability of the ERP to unify organizational tasks and make them available to staff members often ensures that the users of the system have minimal duplication of tasks. As a result, users of the ERP can increase its level of efficiency and effectiveness in performing tasks
Improved Decision Making
ERP creates shared databases that ensure users like the board of directors and managers receive information on time. Hence, users can make informed decisions within the shortest time possible, thus improving the tedious task of making decisions.
Increases User Adaptability
A properly implemented cloud ERP ensures that users have the necessary information to adapt to different organizational tasks. This is because the ERP is not only a source of information but also a tool that can be used to improve user skills and knowledge of the organization.
