Why Replace Your Legacy Enterprise System With ERP Solution

Legacy software systems are just like a pair of old shoes! Comfortable yet worn out and so needs to be replaced before your feet get hurt.

That’s what legacy software systems will do to your business. They will slow down your operations. As your business grows and attempts to achieve new frontiers, enfolds new processes or wants to catch up with the competitors, they may stop backing you with the support or functions you need.  

While most big enterprises have stepped ahead with the modern-day ERP solutions built with standalone software like Odoo, Microsoft Dynamics, Oracle due to this, the thought might be fearful to the small and mid-size businesses. Replacing their old enterprise systems seems not only costlier but also a complicated, time-consuming approach for which so they like to stick to their existing legacy systems. However, even though there’s a huge cost associated with getting a new ERP system, you need to read this to know why replacing your old legacy software of ERP is the right thing to do now before you really fall behind of your peers.

The flowing trend over the years also shows that legacy enterprise software are fading with ERP taking the lead.

5 Reasons why you need to replace your old Legacy Enterprise System with ERP Solution

Outdated technology

As technology is getting better every day, you are literally stuck with an obsolete, inefficient and restricted IT infrastructure which is hampering your bottom line. You need to have 24×7 technical support to maintain your legacy systems and pay attention to its improvements. But getting the vendor support is most of the times difficult because either they have phased out your version or is no longer in business. So, ultimately, you have not enough support to plan strategically for the future with its outdated functionalities.

Maintenance costs

By the time you are done with spending a lot of dollars as well as efforts to upgrade your existing system, there are new updates rolling out. So, you are typically caught in a ‘revision prison’ while surviving on your legacy software systems. Resultantly, your company will suffer from downtime and more importantly unsatisfied customers.

Lacking in the latest features

A legacy system operates as a result of collaboration of many on-premise systems but most of them do not interact with each other and so there’s the need for integration features to make them work together.  While you’ll agree to have faced this hurdle, a robust ERP system comes with flawless and default integrations like MES (Manufacturing execution system), quality management, CRM, sales, accounting and many more.

Disparate information

The conventional systems need more time and inputs to process any information to be needed for decision-making. It may not be generating reports in the way it is needed by the management team and your company might fall sort of any options later to revise the reporting system.

Functional discrepancies

This is quite a generic problem that most organisations encounter with their old enterprise systems as their business grows. Your business model changes and new processes evolve faster than what your existing legacy software can support. Eventually, the existing software slogs downs, become painful to use and might interrupt the ongoing processes by crashing down frequently.

Clearly, no more clinging on to the old legacy system. Embrace the all-new ERP as it is embodied with lots of advantages.

ERP

While a comprehensive platform such as Odoo is helping business enterprises to get the best kind of ERP software for your specific business matters, you got to be careful that you are not in any way replicating the functions of your legacy systems in the new modularised ERP system. Well, partnering with an adept ERP consulting firm will help you avoid all the pitfalls.

Odoo.sh: The All-New Fullstack Platform for ERP

It’s time to discover Odoo.sh, the new and all-in-one cloud platform for ERP applications.

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) has become the cornerstone of most businesses, from big to small units. From managing accounts to sales processes, integrating HR and administrative tasks to marketing, it takes care of all. Well, what’s making this possible is the presence of all-in-one open source frameworks like Odoo. Specifically designed for small and mid-scale businesses, Odoo offers a full suite of apps, including sales and supply management, accounting, finance, purchases, recruitment and what not!  

This is the sole reason that every enterprise is now embracing Odoo ERP development to come up with a one-stop solution that perfectly integrates all their key functions. Over 3 million users are unleashing their growth potential with Odoo! So, it’s high time for you to consult an adept Odoo consultant and hire Odoo developer to get one ERP solution in case you do not deploy one.

But, there’s good news for all Odoo users!

Odoo.sh, also stated as Odoo SH is the latest and much more improvised version of Odoo released in the Odoo Enterprise category. A full-stack platform, it’s out-of-the-box and will help businesses with top-notch features that will ease the development of an ERP application suite. Some worth mentioning features are database replication, staging servers, email gateways, SSH access, DNS & routes, backup servers, and 24/24 monitoring.

While Odoo.sh is also the cloud platform used for deploying for Odoo apps, it comes with a round of features separately for developers, testers, system administrators as well as project managers. So, developing enterprise applications will be unquestionably easy now with Odoo.sh.

But, before you move to know what can Odoo online platform help businesses achieve, know why to deploy Odoo.

  • Odoo stands at the #4 position in the market among the ERP software.
  • Odoo, once called OpenERP moved past all traditional ERP players by breaking all the barriers with nearly 1,000 installations encountered each day.
  • Even the big business analysts from the Big 4 firms started preferring Odoo over SAP and other ERP platforms for its robustness, flexibility and avant-garde features.

Clearly, Odoo evolved fast and much impressively! With no point of looking back, Odoo became that one name amongst the enterprises that breaks the age-old convention of complicated ERP systems. It is modular (with approx 1000 ready-made modules) and gives all freedom to the users to add modules according to their business’s processes or functions. And now, with Odoo.sh which is cloud-based, things got more advanced and it offers the Odoo end users with widespread flexibility in building the apps that rightly fit with the needs of business.

  • Share test builds

Features for System Administrators

  • High availability
  • Monitoring
  • Incremental Backups
  • Mail Servers
  • Instant Recovery
  • DNS
  • Top-notch Security
  • Great performance

While that was all about features enterprises can have with Odoo.sh, take a look at the facts that differentiate it and make it better than Odoo online.

Odoo.sh

 

  • Far advanced than Odoo online

Business enterprises must go for Odoo.sh because it is now better than earlier ERP versions in many ways. It is one-step ahead in terms of scalability and allows businesses to go for more customisation because it owns number of custom modules. Without a doubt, Odoo.sh is the perfect pick for business organisations as it gives users ample of scopes to modularise their ERP applications by incorporating custom add-ons.

  • More focus on Performance

While businesses only strive to grow and scale up their performance, Odoo.sh helps them achieve that seamlessly. With more features and strong technical foundations over other versions, Odoo help in maximising business performance. Using Odoo, entrepreneurs can get to know their KPIs, and status of every server from time to time.

  • Safer Data Backup

Odoo.sh is managed by the Odoo core platform itself and hence all your business data are safe and secured with its Automated backup. While the automated backup runs every day, the data is kept stored for about 3 months.

  • Easy testing and software management

Odoo.sh is the hybrid platform of Odoo and GitHub for which it facilitates the testing as well as management of the ERP software. While the enterprises can know the finest detail of Odoo integration via the GitHub’s development flow,  it also allows them to merge, tweak, clone or segregate the project with separate SSH keywords and secrets.

Apart from all that, Odoo.sh permits the users to test their software application developments and fix any glitches in case they are found.

While these are rare things that business enterprises can now enjoy by deploying Odoo.sh, we have here illustrated the common benefits that Odoo.sh as well the earlier version hold.

  • Simple maintenance

Once implemented, it’s always easy to run and maintain an Odoo ERP software, built with either of the versions. While it can ease all your key server tasks from processes monitoring to emails, it provides the simplest backup mode in few clicks with foolproof security.

  • Enhanced mailing service

Both of the current Odoo versions have the equal potential in providing mailing service. While Odoo online is an expert solution for setting up and managing the mail server using a domain name, Odoo.sh, on the other hand is pro as a mail catcher for reading the mails.

  • Security facilities

Odoo.sh as well as Odoo online version, both ensure maximum security when it is about securing the data of clients. The core types of security that they both emphasise upon are database security, password security, Odoo staff access, client communication security, system security and secured Odoo design.

Wrapping Things Up!

Most businesses now need an automated software to manage, organise and streamline their day-to-day tasks and Odoo ERP is the befitting solution that can serve them flawlessly! However, different businesses have separate workflows, distinct processes and clients. So, you need to decide first the features your business needs and ask your Odoo developer to get the best solution accordingly.  

Well, we at Envertis, a leading ERP solutions provider in Australia and also the trusted Odoo partner can assure businesses of all domains with powerful Odoo apps and solutions built on either of the versions. While Odoo is evolving exceptionally nowadays, it’s now high time you realise your growth potential with us by deploying Odoo.SH version application.

How ERP is Fast Turning Enterprises into Most Efficient Units

The benefits of ERP are countless, considering the vast sizes and spectrum of industrial units it can serve. Fully termed as Enterprise Resource Planning, it’s a newly grown entrepreneurial software technology, helping leaders and management of companies to make principal decisions that will make their operations more organised and efficient.

 

A survey by CIO magazine in early years, that focused on the relevance of ERP in large and midsized organisations, revealed “Businesses can’t live without it.  Surprisingly, the study disclosed that companies are becoming dependent on ERP software solutions after being plagued by higher ownership and operations costs and complex system integration. This presumably persuaded the companies yearning for cost-efficiency and innovation to embrace ERP systems soon.

The results of the survey hold true at present when enterprises in almost all industry verticals are deploying the technology deliberately to get a competitive edge over their market counterparts.

 

  • According to the reports of Allied Market Research, ERP Software market is projected to reach near about $ 42 Billion by end of 2020 at the global market.
  • Panorama’s autonomous research on the ERP implementation across specific industries unleashed that 81% of organisations are on the way of implementing ERP software, 14% are in the midway of choosing a fitting software, and 5% are going to upgrade their existing software system.

The Bigger Picture

Specifically, ERP software systems allow businesses with the power to scale across HR, supplier management, customer relationship and other areas.  Being a multi-layered, complicated and integrated software, it helps enterprises to collect, store and manage critical business data and connects every person, department or process within them with the right set of information. Here’s recounted how some specific business segments are getting benefitted from ERP software extraordinarily in the recent years.

 

Manufacturing

Manufacturing is the umbrella term for core industries like consumer products, automotive, retail, electronics, defense and aerospace equipments. On being asked which areas in their business call for ERP, manufacturers cited financial and accounting, followed by procurement, order procession, dealers and supplier management, inventory and HR. As per the discretion of IT chiefs,

Operational efficiency was the goal of their organization’s ERP investment.”  Thus, manufacturing enterprises seeking for standalone solutions to intensify ROI and generate incremental value for their business.

Demand for on-premise ERP software solutions have surged in the recent years and will continue so to capture a greater market share. While it is expected to occupy about 57% of the market by 2020 with more cloud-based ERP, the growth and adoption of ERP in defense and aeronautical segment are expected to rise at CAGR of nearly 9%

 

The core benefits of ERP realised by manufacturers at a glance.

  • Brings forth better managerial capabilities of product data
  • Turns complex manufacturing plans into organised plan with data accuracy and preparedness for reproduction
  • Provide comprehensive applications for tracking production
  • Offers enhanced control over product quality management and maintains the quality of the process chain aspects including raw materials, end products and in-process materials with inspection and testing
  • Inventory management is harmonised due to standardisation of processes

 

Besides this assured usefulness, ERP suites are valued by the manufacturing ventures that are highly regulated industrial segments with stringent compliance for which traceability requirements is their prior concern.

 

Food & Beverages

ERP technology takes a great stand in the food processing industry. In food and beverages segment, there’s a good deal of physical processes, each of which is subjected to food safety rules and standards. As the products are perishable and are life-sustaining, ERP systems must take into account the different types of quality standards to affirm safety for the consumers.

 

While a recent study by Abeerden Group unveiled that 48% of manufacturers in the food industry consider compliance with food safety regulations as a prior concern, ERP systems are a proactive solution for them.

 

Being an industry that is quite cumbersome due to strict compliances and product recalls, it definitely demands for a powerful software solution wherein companies can track their products, ingredients in both the upstream and downstream. Specifically, data needs to be tracked from each point in the supply chain which will help eventually in the audit trail. This serves the real purpose of ERP solutions to firms and enterprises in the food industry.  The cutting-edge benefits of ERP that make great sense to the food manufacturing businesses:

  • Offer end-to-end product traceability
  • Helps food businesses to control their supplier lot details
  • Allows food companies to adhere to HACCP system (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) besides food safety regulations.
  • Manages production in an innovative way with precise scheduling and control panel that is all way connected with plant floor equipments.

 

While quality assurance is a top concern for food manufacturing units,  ERP came as a boon to them and helped them overcome ‘‘farm to fork”  safety challenges. It provided them with a 360-degree view of their production and supply processes and meet safety standards to ensure that the finished products are quality oriented and minimised all the chances of costly food recall situations.

 

Healthcare/Hospitals

Of late, healthcare institutions are primarily emphasising on bringing fresh and high-end clinical software replacing the conventional systems.

 

While ERP is already a revolutionising phenomenon in the non-healthcare sectors giving businesses an upper hand in supply chain management, HR, financial and accounting, healthcare organisations are deploying it fast to meet their challenges. It helped in on-time integrations to various clinical systems and allow bi-directional flows of the data.  In short, ERP made healthcare institutions more prompt at providing their services to patients and helped them rise above their competing partners.

 

ERP helps in keeping the health sector “healthy”. As per the words of Jacqueline Belliveau, a renowned editor at Xtelligent Media,

“In healthcare, organizations use ERP systems to eliminate financial data siloes that have traditionally separated back office functions. With an ERP system, providers can break down the walls between front-end revenue cycle management duties, such as patient access, and back-end responsibilities, including claims management.”

 

Hereby, ERP is great software mechanisms for organisational management that offer healthcare centres an integrated view of their crucial functions and consolidate data to facilitate the exchange of information. They streamline the overall management and curbs down costs of hospitals and health centres while rendering quality care by,

  • Mechanising all manual procedures to uplift efficiency
  • Gain more financial visibility for quick and informed decision-making
  • Effective cost management
  • Better estimation of aging of medicines and machines

 

While ERP solutions emerged as the mainstream tool in the health industry, investments on it also seems a prerequisite for the healthcare ventures to seamlessly drive growth, consolidations and other acquisitions.

        “The eCommerce industry is a force that no investor can afford to ignore.”

 

eCommerce is clearly the future and customers seek to get best of the shopping experiences for which no eCommerce sites can ever afford disintegrated and malfunctioning backend systems.  Satiating the demand of 21st-century customers does necessarily calls for right amalgamation of website’s backend operations and ERP resorts to that seamlessly.

From manufacturing to healthcare, none of the industrial sectors is cast off from the influence of ERP solutions. The multitude of benefits harnessed by businesses pretty much sums up how industry visionaries feel about ERP and the notion that businesses cannot live without them holds true. In fact, commercial enterprises got entwined with ERP technology for an undefined period. When companies were enquired whether they will be able to do without ERP, more than two-thirds of them disagreed.
