Speaking of big enterprises, it is not that easy to solve their issues due to the large scale of work, the cumbersome amount of data enterprises process every hour, complex business logic and sometimes stubbornness and non-acceptance of necessary changes from the executives. As a result, some enterprises don’t survive the competition with more “IT-savvy” manufacturers and other business representatives, others lose because of slow processes, high operational costs, lack of efficiency and productivity.

What can possibly be the universal solution for big enterprises? The answer will be – high-quality adaptable web-based, desktop or hybrid ERP systems. A good ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system is a set of interoperable business applications integrated within one complex system, where each application executes its own specific functions, but in general, they all serve the same purpose in a uniform way.

The term ERP is quite huge since these systems manage operations of the whole corporation across all the departments. It is an optimal solution compared to having separate software for each department when sooner or later interoperability issues appear as well as troubles with exchanging data between several departments. ERP is linking together all the business processes in the company under a unified interface in a way that is convenient for the employees to enter, control and distribute business information they are responsible for with no delays and compatibility issues.

What challenges do ERPs solve?

A good full cycle development company is able to develop an ERP that is able to reduce the headache a lot in the decision-making processes,bringing the following benefits:

  1. Getting rid of manual, paper-heavy processes. ERPs avoid inefficient labor resources usage, optimize document flow processes, cut down on unnecessary paper costs. Moreover, manual work is always accompanied by accidental mistakes, typos, and inaccuracy – ERPs diminish this threat. Besides, this whole thing means that the time
  2. needed to execute a process will shorten significantly. In other words, ERP, due to using paperless technologies, saves time, money, ensures faster product delivery, which consequently makes the end clients more loyal and satisfied;
  3. No data redundancy and contradiction. High-quality ERPs reduce the risk to have data duplicates, eliminates excessive data issues, and provide data integrity across all the departments. ERP has a single source of data which means you won’t have to go and ask for access in different departments for spreadsheets with different formats, accounting, sales, and other sources;
  4. Improved emotional and mental health of your employees. Without good quality software employees tend to be stressed-out more often and overworked. A proper ERP lets the staff concentrate on more important strategic tasks, delegating the manual routine ones to digital technologies. As a result, productivity increases, and the employees’ satisfaction increases, they stop feeling worthless because of doing the same repetitive tasks every day;
  5. Scalability enabled. Again, high-quality ERPs give nice opportunities for organizational scalability. The companies that wish to grow in perspective won’t be able to succeed with paper-heavy processes and non-future-proof software, while a good ERP will help boost and support the company’s progress rather than become an unpleasant obstacle.

What do you need to have a worthwhile ERP

The role of the right combination of technologies prior to the start of ERP development is enormous. During the planning stage, the angular development company has to choose the database, the backend, and frontend technologies, that would be interoperable with each other.

To be fair, Frontend technology is probably the most difficult thing to choose since Frontend is responsible for communication with backend, the graphic interface, that the users will see and interact with for sending and receiving information. The end-users don’t care how the data flow and other processes are running in the background, but they do care for the image they see when they log into the system, they care about the user experience and the way it all works out together.

For the last few years, Frontend has been one of the most rapidly developing technology spheres. New frameworks and libraries appear pretty often these days. The most widespread ones in web-based and desktop ERP development are – JavaScript, Angular, React and relatively new Vue.js

JavaScript, being called an “untyped” language for a reason, is probably the riskiest choice. React is just a JavaScript-based library, the library itself is not enough for building huge corporate solutions, however it also gives an opportunity to develop not only web but also a mobile application. Vue.JS is a fresh perspective technology, a progressive framework, however lacking resources due to being too young. The optimal solution is Angular, it is a full-fledged framework with strict rules and scalability capabilities thanks to its competent structure and architecture, so it is suitable for creating large corporate information systems. No wonder that such giants as Microsoft, MacDonald’s, Cisco Solution Partner Program, Apple and lots of other corporations utilize exactly Angular and not anything else.

Angular has good detailed documentation and a pretty big supportive community. Angular has an MVVM (Model-View-View-Model), that gives the developers an opportunity to work separately on one section of the application using the same set of data. However, you should keep in mind, that Angular is much harder to learn and it has a bit slower performance rates.

We also recommend to read about other best practises of ERP implementation (that don’t concern the tech stack) here.

In conclusion, we would like to say that ERP for an enterprise is an irreplaceable software, that should be present in any self-respecting company. It optimizes the business-processes, increases the level of the employees’ satisfaction, and gives many other benefits. However, the ERP itself is not as important as the set of technologies chosen to develop one. It is always pretty hard to connect completely different technologies without compatibility issues coming out in the future. So it’s extremely essential to think carefully over the technology stack, taking into consideration such key things as the platforms, the number of end-users, database structure, possible security weaknesses, etc.
