An ERP will provide you with visibility across the entire supply chain so that you won’t have to visit all branches to see if there is any shortage of materials.
An effective ERP system also keeps track of the demands of the clients, the latest trends in furniture, used and unused raw materials, and the number of furniture pieces developed and sold. In case of any quality issues, the system must alarm you to learn from them and try to minimize them.
