Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
Seamless Integration of All Your Business Processes
Enterprise Resource Planning (EPR) systems are a great solution but, often times they are not enough. Many business processes exist outside the application and cannot be managed by a single application. ERP systems provide great benefits for specialized, high value transactions they were designed to control.

- Are Cross departmental
- Require more agility
- Need the ability to respond to exceptions and change
