Instead of just connecting the database to the ERP software solution, it is important to do a direct integration into the ERP system. It is very useful to actually integrate a single inventory control database rather than partially integrate it. In this case, there is no need to maintain a second database or synchronize a second system, as they are seamlessly integrated into the database.
An example to illustrate is thinking about a sales transaction. With a fully integrated system, transactions posted to your inventory management system are automatically posted to your real-time accounting system.
If the data is inconsistent, employees are more likely to make decisions based on misinformation. This can be expensive on many levels. With a fully integrated system, you don't have to worry anymore. Instead, your inventory information is updated directly in the ERP system.
When transactions are processed in the warehouse, they are validated by the inventory management system and automatically updated in real-time on the ERP system. Without some reconciliation records, you don't have to deal with future inventory inconsistencies. In addition, everyone has access to the most appropriate information, both in the warehouse and in the office.
You don't have to waste time learning an entirely new system or combining different systems when all you need is a fully integrated warehouse and inventory management system that integrates seamlessly with your existing ERP software.
