Has the pandemic changed your perspective of automation and digital transformation?

In our recent internal survey, most of the respondents said Yes. The pandemic has changed the way they learn, operate, communicate, and work. With the sudden disruption caused by the Covid-19  outbreak, companies have had to change their strategy to navigate the uncertain times. 

They further said, pre-Covid, digital automation is one of their priorities in the coming years. But, now, they have no choice other than to embrace digital solutions for business continuity. More than 80% of companies are likely to revamp their business continuity plans through legacy application modernization strategies.   

On the other hand, the fourth industrial revolution (industry 4.0) has raised the bar for digital transformation over a decade. Digital transformation is the process of adopting digital technologies such as AI, ML to cut down data silos, improve efficiency, gain visibility and control, and improve productivity.

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) in 2021 and Beyond:

Any business includes finance, development, manufacturing, sales, inventory, and many other departments. With legacy systems in place, perhaps, it is impossible to consolidate the business data, analyze it, and make well-informed decisions.  

ERP software solutions enable real-time visibility and control over operations through a single collaborative platform. Also, with the emergence of AI and ML technologies, ERP solutions can streamline data across the organization and improve efficiency. 

Despite the benefits of ERP, here comes a big question about whether to choose on-premises or cloud ERP software solutions. If you ask us, we would definitely say cloud ERP is the best choice for companies to navigate unprecedented downtimes. 

As they operate on multi, hybrid, or dedicated cloud servers, you need not worry about downtimes and data availability.

1. Real-time reporting:

Data is crucial in the current technology-driven competitive market. The more accurate information you get, the more effective decisions you can make. With NetSuite’s customized reporting tools, you can get all the metrics on the go and make timely decisions.

Relying on old or legacy reporting tools might help you to an extent. As your business starts scaling, they might not support and even fail to report in real-time.

2. Automate manual process:

Any business consists of a few regular and mundane tasks. Relying on human intervention sometimes leads to erroneous operations — which further affects process disruptions and productivity. By embracing NetSuite ERP, you can replace mundane and time-consuming tasks with automated processes while saving time and cost. 

3. Scales with your business:

This is one of the underlying benefits of NetSuite ERP. It is specifically customized to meet your evolving business needs. NetSuite releases new versions twice a year. So, your software will be updated automatically without investing an extra budget. If you need any specific plugins or snippets, you can purchase them to make your business processes easy.
