What is Business Process Re-engineering?

    1. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is an enterprise-wide information
      system that facilitates the flow of information and coordinates all
      resources and activities within the organization. To start with I will post some
      questions based on your company activity as a production house, a Service provider or any other.
      Please provide the information.

        1. Select a proposal.
          • Who best demonstrates that they understand your business and your requirements?
          • Is the solution flexible and scaleable and therefore able to meet future demand? You don’t want to find out later that by investing a little more money now you could save money in the long term.
          • Is it cost effective? Does it demonstrate clearly the functional benefits – rather than telling a list of particular features, does the proposal clearly show what the benefits are? There is no point on spending money for system with features that are of no benefit or that you will never use!
          • How much will the software licences cost?
          • How much will software support cost?
          • Can any savings be made by agreeing a multi-year contract for support?
          • How will your potential supplier support and maintain your system afterwards?
          • How much will this cost?
          • What is the other costs for example, consultancy and training. These are frequently under-budgeted but are very important.
          • Have you spoken to a couple of your preferred suppliers’ customers?
          • Agree on financial terms – you may be required to pay a deposit but do not pay the whole amount in advance of delivery.

    2. ERP attempts to integrate all departments and functions across a company onto a single computer system that can serve all those different departments’ particular needs.
      Building a single software program that serves the needs of people in finance as well as it does the people in human resources and in the warehouse.
      Take a customer order, for example. Typically, when a customer places an order, that order begins a mostly paper-based journey from in-basket to in-basket around the company, often being keyed and re-keyed into different departments’ computer systems along the way.
      All that lounging around in in-baskets causes delays and lost orders, and all the keying into different computer systems invites errors. Meanwhile, no one in the company truly knows what the status of the order is at any given point because there is no way for the finance department, for example, to get into the warehouse’s computer system to see whether the item has been shipped. “You’ll have to call the warehouse” is the familiar refrain heard by frustrated customers. Most vendors’ ERP software is flexible enough that you can install some modules without buying the whole package. Many companies, for example, will just install an ERP finance or HR module and leave the rest of the functions for another day.

    1. Please ask vendor
      1. Is the system up gradable? If yes up to how may TB.
      2. Can backup/restore of Oracle/SqlServer/Tally be automated?
      3. Any software is to be installed on every PC on the network?
      4. After installation how can I add additional PC
      5. All facilities as mentioned on site are available in the cost quoted?
      6. What is down time/support
      7. Is UPS is must? If so what is the rating?
