What is ERP Software?

An enterprise resource planning system helps organizations track information across all departments and business functions, from accounting to human resources to sales and beyond. Common ERP functionality includes:

  • Product and purchase planning
  • Manufacturing and delivery planning
  • Inventory mangement
  • Shipping and payment
  • Supply chain management
  • Accounting
  • Marketing and sales
  • Customer relationship management

The term “ERP” took root in the U.S. around 1990 as a growing number of organizations required integration outside of—but not exclusive of—their manufacturing applications. They needed to share data from their MRP system with say, their financial accounting, customer relationship, supply chain or other applications. Enterprise planning software was introduced to describe a broader system that integrated each of these applications. The top ERP software packages will cover the following application categories.
