According to Statista’s market analysis, cloud ERP market revenue was recorded at USD 14.7 billion in 2018, which is further expected to acquire USD 40.5 billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 13.6 during the year 2019 to 2025.

Thus, modern businesses are deploying cloud ERP just to impact their digital transformation strategies which in turn drive efficiency and growth.

Here is how implementing cloud ERP can impact digital transformation strategies.

The Impact of Cloud ERP on Digital Transformation

When it comes to cloud-based transformation, deploying cloud ERP is considered a foremost way as it empowers and enables businesses to smoothly carry out critical business operations, optimize the operational flow, and amalgamate processes.

Thus, demonstrating below how implementing an ERP business management platform is helping businesses reinforce their digital transformation strategies:

Achieve Workforce Collaboration

Working in an isolated manner may not help you optimize your process flow and introduce efficiency across your operational space. Once you upgrade your system capabilities with cloud ERP, you can succeed in achieving workforce collaboration.

This in turn helps connect your workforce and allows them to ensure collaborative efforts in real-time as everyone in the process cycle remains aware of what has happened, what is currently happening, and what is yet to happen in the process.

For instance, having eyes on real-time inventory levels on the shelf, what inventory counts are in the pick-pack-ship process, and what is on the way to customer delivery. This can help you maximize workforce efficiency, minimize costs associated with inefficient processing, and achieve improved customer experience.

Drive Process Automation

If you observe, there are numerous tasks in each process that you require to do repetitively and in the same manner. Moreover, when things are done manually it imbibes the opportunity of inaccuracy and redundancies as well.

To have more clarity on this, let’s understand this through a use case. Suppose you need to create a sales order for a specific customer on a fixed regular interval. What if you need to do the same for 100 customers?

Here, creating sales orders each time will engage your warehousing team for hours to perform a similar task. Once you automate this process, it can be done by your system itself as the sales orders can be generated at the specified time for each customer.

Now, you can evaluate how it can impact your workforce efficiency, as they can focus on other tasks instead of doing the same repetitively which also involves the potential of inaccuracy. With the help of cloud ERP, you can drive this automation of many other processes too from inventory invoicing to customer notification, and more.

Level Up Customer Experience

It requires end-to-end efforts to keep your customers happy and satisfied. After acquiring customers, the next step is to serve them quality in the defined time frame, along with timely support and issue resolution.

Using a cloud ERP platform, you can stay updated with inventory counts and when there is a need to restock the same. Moreover, if your ERP is configured with AI (Artificial Intelligence) and Machine Learning Algorithms, it can also help you understand your customers' behavioral patterns through their past purchases which in turn helps you serve them a personalized deal.

Again, an ERP integrated with an AI Chatbot can also help quickly respond to your customers' general queries without any human intervention. Leveraging this way can help you gain customer trust and ensure their retention rate.

Seamless Market Expansion

When it comes to scaling your business in the global market, it needs to adhere to global compliance and industry regulations, the capability to deal with multi-currency, the facilitation to manage warehouses in multiple geo-locations, and many more on this list.

Certainly, without deploying an ERP solution in your system, scaling your business in the international market won’t be easy. And using distinct or multiple system solutions may not help you attain efficiency.

Here, integrated cloud ERP software is required to manage your end-to-end business expansion requirement in the global marketplace. Thus, a capable ERP solution can help you impact your digital transformation strategies.

Better Resource Utilization

When your repetitive tasks can be automated such as customers can be responded to through AI-generated automated emails, inventory can be controlled as well as automated requirements can be generated to stock up the level, lead conversion cycle can be shortened via AI-opportunity scoring functionality, etc., then, you can ensure better resource allocation and eventually reduce your costs.

You can even free up your resources that handle customer support part as half of the customer queries or issues can be resolved through AI-integrated Chatbots in your ERP system. Further, these resources can be utilized to scale up your business.

Informed Decision-Making

With real-time insights across your processes from inventory, warehouse, vendors, customers to finance, and more, you can make informed decisions. You can even monitor the process and introduce improvements, provide a personalized experience to your customers, streamline purchase orders from your vendors, and simplify your order fulfillment to your customers.

Overall, with the help of cloud ERP baked with real-time analytics and insights capabilities, you can make informed decisions to maximize profitability support your company’s growth, and elongate scalability in the global geolocations.
