Implementing or migrating an ERP can be challenging for various organizations because of their intricate workflows. Robust ERP tools offer businesses the agility it requires to gain a competitive edge in the industry. Disruptions in supply chain management or production can severely impact the cash flow. Organizations need to have strategic response plans to mitigate the impacts of disruption on their business continuity. Here are a few tips to efficiently manage enterprise resource planning to prevent them from the next disruption.
