How To Know If I Need a System Review 

When your systems break down, it can cause stress to your employees.  But what if we were to tell you that we had ways of preventing this?  

System reviews help to ensure that all your systems are running optimally, but how will you know when it’s time to review them?   

 To get you started, here are a few statements to guide you to an informed decision. If your business can relate to one or many of these frequently asked statements, it may be time to consider a system review. Not to worry, get in touch with Equinox Consulting today if you feel you need a system review. 

There is still a reliance on bits and pieces of software or traditional reporting methods.  

 If you are relying on multiple pieces of software or traditional methods of reporting, then it can put a burden on you and your team.   

 Are you using any of the following to manage your business data? 

  • Smartsheets  
  • Spreadsheets (Excel)  
  • Outlook  
  • Desktop/single-function applications  
  • Microsoft Word  
  • Hand-written notes  

 By selecting an ERP software system, you can simplify your data management by integrating it into a single system.   

 This not only aligns business departments but can also help save on various software costs such as licenses, maintenance, training, and operational expenses.  

 Improve your business’ efficiency by managing data correctly by simplifying and streamlining the process.   

We spend a lot of time entering data.  

Are you finding that inputting data is a tedious and time-consuming task?  

If you answered yes to this question, Equinox Consulting have the answer for you. 

Firstly, you need to understand the reasons for the input of that data and how it contributes to the company’s overall picture. This helps to provide clarity and may reveal that your current process is inefficient and needs optimisation.  

If you are still using manual data entry processes, you may be missing out on the many benefits of automation with ERP software!  

The advantages of automating your data input include:  

  • Increased accuracy: Automation ensures that data is entered consistently and accurately, reducing the risk of errors that can impact your company’s performance.  
  • Time savings: Automating data input can significantly reduce the time needed to complete the task, allowing your team to focus on more high-value activities.  
  • Improved productivity: With automated data input, your team can process more data in less time, improving overall productivity.  
  • Better decision-making: Accurate and timely data is critical for making informed decisions that drive company performance. Automating data input ensures that you have the most up-to-date information available.  

Investing in ERP software for data input may seem daunting, but the long-term benefits are worth it, trust us.   

Optimising your data input process can improve your company’s overall performance and make sure that you stay ahead of the competition.  

I often have to ask many people for one piece of information. 

According to an Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) report, employees spend more than 25% of their workweek searching for information, and managers spend more than half of their time executing routine tasks.   

Unit4’s ERP software is invaluable for organising and managing your business’s data and information. Once you’ve implemented this software, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner!  

It allows you to easily collect, process, and store information from all areas of your business, providing you with a single source of accurate data.   

Whether you need to manage customer relationships or create budgets and forecasts, Equinox Consulting and Unit4’s ERP software can help you make better decisions in all facets of your business.  

With all your data consolidated in one central location and advanced analytics applied, you can make more informed decisions about running your business with less stress.  

It is difficult to know or explain the state of the business.  

You may discover that you hear about issues long after they’ve occurred. Frustrating right? This is often a sign of disorganisation in your supply chain, and you’re unable to meet demand in crucial areas. We can’t have this. 

Unless you can access up-to-date key performance measures and data or any other information, it’ll all be guesswork.   

Waiting for days beyond month-end to determine whether your company has turned a profit, or to discover what commitments have been made, can be incredibly costly.   

An ERP strategy can provide real-time reporting on current operations, from sales and customer service to manufacturing and distribution, allowing you to make informed decisions and stay current on your business’s progress. Why wouldn’t you want that?
