Be Mobile Accessible to Bring Your Business With You
Many ERP vendors are offering native applications on Android, iOS and Windows smart devices for ease of use. These applications typically offer updates in real time with crucial business KPIs, including:
- Customer acquisitions
- Web traffic
- Manufacturing output
One of the predictions in Gartner’s “Forecast Overview: ERP Software, Worldwide, 2016” report (available to Gartner clients) is that 60 percent of SMBs will be selecting ERP in the cloud by 2020. This will only increase the mobile accessibility for users— a trend that’s increase more as more and more tech-savvy professionals enter the marketplace.
This generation prefers a connected network of applications, which can be easily managed on a tablet or better, their phones. They’ll automatically prefer ERP vendors who offer integrated apps with other software so that they can easily switch between functions within seconds.
