A fully integrated business software solution is the single most crucial tool for running your business in the most efficient and effective way possible. It will consolidate and minimize manual processes, de-skill certain areas of the business and give you a ‘true picture’ of the business at any point in time via up-to-date business data. At Enapps, we encompass all of your company workflow within a single coherent end-to-end business management system. Also, be aware that many software solutions do not deliver a fully end-to-end system, which may be the reason to cause business problems, so you may well end up spending many more thousands by the time you have added a Document Management System, Warehouse Automation, Complex Estimation system, Business Intelligence and flexible Reporting options, all of which are included as standard within the Enapps ERP system.
If you are currently at the stage of choosing the right ERP vendor for your company, please see below some very common business problems within an SME company and how Enapps resolves them.
Problem #1: Multiple versions of the truth – As most businesses are aware, when using disparate systems, you cannot completely rely on the information from those systems as it can often be out of date or contradictory to information that you ‘know to be true’.
Resolution: Multiple versions of the truth are eliminated – Since we implement an end-to-end system, which utilizes a single database structure, there can only ever be a ‘single version of the truth’. All modules within our system are inherently linked, so whatever happens in one part of the system immediately cascades to all other relevant parts of the system.
Problem #2: Monthly management reports – How long does it take you to produce your management reports and are they 100% reliable? The companies we deal with can typically take around one week per month to produce their management reports.
Resolution: Management reports at any time – With our ERP solution reliable management reporting can now be made available at any time with just a couple of mouse clicks. All you need to do is refresh our Excel ODBC linked management account template and your management accounts can be ready for viewing at any time.

Problem #3: Complex estimation tasks – If your particular business requires complex estimation tasks when quoting, do these tasks rely on a couple or even one key individual?
Resolution: Uncomplicate estimation tasks – By utilising Enapps software tools, such as our Product Configurator, complex estimation tasks can be quicker, more flexible and largely deskilled since you cannot mix products which are not meant to be mixed. This has the added advantage of being able to open these task types to more ‘less qualified’ personnel.
Problem #4: Detached accounting: Are you tired of manually updating financial data from several disparate applications or having to manually key in data, adding to the potential for ‘human error’?
Resolution: Fully unified system: Manage your whole business in the quickest and most efficient way utilising a fully end-to-end system. Accounting transactions from all parts of the business automatically follow through to the fully integrated accounting module, making sure your financials are always up to date.
Now let’s consider the most frequent business problems.
Problem #5: The complexities of using disparate business software: When your company reaches a certain size, the complexities of using disparate business applications will far outweigh the benefits and may actually prevent you from growing your business.
Resolution: Enapps – A unified software solution: Our unified system inherently ‘joins the dots’ within your business by capturing the complete company workflow. Also, as your company changes, the system can be enhanced to reflect the new workflow in an extremely cost effective and convenient way.
Problem #6: Poor mobile system access: Due to the multiple business systems used and the potential difficulty accessing those systems remotely when away from the office, from our experience most people tend not to try this and prefer to ‘call in’ for specific information.
Resolution: Great mobile system access: Access your unified system anytime and from anywhere in the world using a multitude of mobile devices, including your Smart Phone. Any device which uses the latest Chrome browser is able to access our system. This includes a raft of ‘smart devices’ such as Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops and PCs.
