Having ERP will give the organization a competitive advantage over others in the industry.

As this software helps in the smooth functioning of day-to-day operations and long-term goals of the organizations, it is considered an asset in many organizations. There are many benefits of having enterprise resource planning. It serves as a good business reporting tool where all information and business processes will have a single integrated database as the source of information.
