Learn about the potential of a platform of these characteristics and how it can help your company stand out among the competition.

Why is it necessary to implement an ERP system in a research centre?

In a field as demanding as research, the implementation of an enterprise resource planning system (ERP) has become essential for research centres. The growing complexity of scientific and experimental processes requires comprehensive management that only such a solution can provide.

Here is a list of five reasons why it is important to have an ERP system in a research centre. As you will see, each point outlines some challenges that are easier to overcome thanks to the tools provided by this software solution:

  • Optimisation of resources. Resources in a research centre are limited and valuable. An ERP system allows for a more efficient allocation of funds, equipment and personnel while preventing errors such as duplication.
  • Enhanced collaboration and coordination. ERP systems promote collaboration between departments by providing a centralised platform for sharing information and data. Likewise, research processes require precise coordination between different groups. When there is an ERP system in place, workflows and tasks can be automated, thus avoiding delays and confusion among different employees.
  • Time reduction. In a scientific environment, speeding up discovery times is essential. ERP systems streamline project management by optimising the planning and execution of various tasks. Meanwhile, research generates huge amounts of data. ERP systems make it easier to store, access and analyse information.
  • Strict regulatory compliance. Research is subject to regulations and standards. A resource management system enables users to keep records and monitor compliance, avoiding later legal problems.
  • Use of analytics. ERP systems provide tools for data analysis and reporting to generate a strategic vision of research activities.
