The system will validate that you have a budget to pay and assign a date by which to pay the provider according to the terms and conditions of purchase. 10. You will receive the payment (check) the supplier and will be recorded the date, amount and the provider was paid into the system. Wikilearning we add on the subject, once we have established that it is an ERP and its objective should focus on two main issues as barriers to the implementation of such solutions. First there is the problem of lack of visualization of small firms.

There in the country (referring to Mexico) more than 80% of companies are micro enterprises, which are family businesses with a production that barely allows them to survive the country’s different economic times. Those companies with about 25-50 pc’s where information technology talk is to talk about operating costs for the company and not an investment that can help increase productivity. It has been seen more often in recent years with the arrival of Chinese products where labor and cheap material has allowed entering each of the markets which have interference and, most worrisome of all, the increase in market share. One wonders what would happen if Mexican companies were as productive as possible, if they had a strategic planning not to allow this type of commercial attacks by Asian products, there is also the question, how to attack this market so that no affecting the Mexican industry. Undoubtedly one of those responses would be to increase productivity, make the same number of pairs of shoes, the same number of pants and shirts in less time with fewer resources and less people. How to be productive if we turn to technology to be helped in this regard? The main problem with this type of company is the vision, culture, the lack of knowledge but above all the reluctance of senior management who generally are the owners, to see this type of solution, maybe age has something to see, most people that own small and medium enterprises with the owners over 50 years and when they had their boom in business did not require a single computer to succeed. The second problem is when you have already accepted the possible solution that can give an ERP to the industry where we have analyzed the different solutions, different brands and different suppliers that will implement the solution. Definitely related to the ERP, most companies agree that there are still challenges to increase flexibility and speed of these tools.

The company has implemented ERP knows your business, while being an active partner who cares about improving their business processes.
