ANYWHERE. ANYTIME. ANY PLACE.
In this age of mobility, business is conducted everywhere, every
minute. Your customers are collaborating this second on their
Smartphones, Tablets, and the plethora of other Social Media outlets.
But if you continue to run your business on antiquated accounting
systems or old ERP software, then you’re already falling behind social
savvy competitors embracing technology to improve their business and
customer intelligence.

ABW: Always Be Working-it!

Investment in your company’s overall success. GROW your Business &
Succeed as a Company??? Who wants to do that? At last check– just
about every business out there.

ERP SIGNS:
“Signs, Signs, Everyhttp://mandatek.com/wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=419where Signs
Blocking up the scenery
Breaking up my mind
Do this, don’t do that
Can’t you read the sign?”
(Lyrics by Tesla: originally by The Five Man Electrical Band)

Now that the song is playing in your head, let it remind you that
there are SIGNS that your company would benefit from implementing or
updating your ERP.

CHANGE SIGN:
Is your business model changing? Were you once a small company but
now growing and have many customers that you need to manage?
An ERP system could help you.

DEFINITE SIGN:
Does your present system have a 30 year old mainframe system and a
bunch of people who haven’t retired because you need them to run the
system?
Definitely a Sign you need a new ERP system and your deserving
employees need a retirement vacation.

DANGEROUSLY CLOSE TO ACCOUNTING “3 SHEETS TO THE WIND”* SIGN:
How many spreadsheets are you using in your business? Do you rely on outside tracking via spreadsheets?
Large quantities of spreadsheets is a SIGN you need an ERP system.
Be “sheet responsible”.
If you only have one person who knows all this information then that knowledge will leave with the person who is entitled.
