ERP especially for service providers

Although the ERP systems of manufacturing companies are partly similar to the ERP for service providers, service companies have a different need for ERP functions. Those of the classic merchandise management tend to be of secondary importance.


It is true that some services can be standardised and thus summarised as a ?product? (e.g. the advisory service). However, most processes are noticeably more complex. Among other things, the planning and realisation of IT implementations must be more flexible than those necessary for production and trade.
The simple sequence of an order about performance to invoice cannot gain a foothold in the service industry like this.

The ERP software for service providers, on the other hand, must be able to respond flexibly to individual process steps in order to function. The following types of service can be differentiated:

? Advisor General and management consultant
? Software houses and IT service providers
? Technical planning and engineering
? Research and development
? Transport and logistics

Besides a strong sales module and the financial accounting Depending on the orientation of the service providers, projects, contracts or objects play an essential role:

Project management in ERP for service providers

In order for today's service providers to compete, they must pay attention to the profitability of their projects. To make this possible, it is necessary to consider the individual applications such as CRM, Excel or the accounting in order to obtain the necessary overview. Such a completely integrated ERP solution also enables them to, resources and adapt the process strategy accordingly. This constant access of the service providers to their projects helps them to react flexibly to changes thanks to up-to-date and correct data. Thanks to the right ERP solution, service providers have the opportunity not only to react quickly and efficiently, but also to make each of these services profitable in the end.

Contract management in ERP for service providers

In the service industry, constantly recurring invoices such as e.g. Rentlicence or service costs. These flat fees should be automatically read out from the contract management at certain points in time and proposed for billing. This accelerates and simplifies the already complicated process of billing in the service, especially if this clear list of regular sales can be directly included in the sales planning.

Object and document management

The management of properties plays a role, for example, in the rent in the Real estate industry play a role. Here, rents or service costs are calculated and charged on the basis of space sizes and other parameters.
This object management thus also works directly to the contract management, which is necessary across all sectors. Document management systems are also very popular in all service sectors, as they can be directly linked to the in-house ERP. For example, contracts or invoices can be stored for the respective process and quickly found again with keywords.
