Whether you’re a health care institution busting at the seams or a nonprofit organization that needs to smooth out its process, the impact ERP software can have on a business or organization is not specific to industry. Here are a few examples of industries that are better off because of ERP software.

Health Care

From regulations to costs, this industry is in a unique position that can be helped by ERP software. Patient care, payroll, supplies control, compliance - these are just a few examples of how ERP software can help, whether you’re a growing private practice or a hospital in need of operational assistance.


When it comes to the hospitality industry, there are so many moving pieces that have to work for the customer to receive the best service. In fact, if your organization isn’t run like a tight ship, it’s probably leaking profits. The automated workflows of ERP software can help save time and reduce stress.

Professional Services

For optimum efficiency, ERP software helps professional services in a number of areas. This includes keeping a record of expenses and capturing employee data in efficient ways. As a result, the billing cycle is reduced, costs are kept low, profits increase and inventory stays under control.

Manufacturing & Distribution

As the global economy is constantly changing, so are customer needs. ERP software enables distributors and manufacturers to keep their cost, supply chain and inventory under control, which leads to happier customers and a better edge on the competition.

Nonprofit Organizations

For efficiency and compliance reasons, an airtight reporting system is essential for nonprofits. Self-service payroll solutions, accurate financial reporting and budget control are just a few of the ways ERP software can help nonprofit organizations achieve their goals.


When it comes to specialty trades and equipment rental in the construction industry, cost control, deadlines and inventory are critical. A solid ERP solution can help construction companies streamline their operations with automated workflows, not to mention inventory management so that supervisors can focus on their job at hand, not drown in paperwork.
