My Recommended Enterprise System and the Reasons for Recommendation
The Sugar Squared, Inc. manufacturing company is a significant business entity with
several departments that carry out different business operation activities (Nordmeyer, 2019).
Considering this fact, I would choose an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System as my best
recommendation for the Company. ERP is an integrated information functional system that
offers a platform over which a Company can coordinate and enrol its most essential processes
during routinely operations through the use of an appropriate resource planning mechanism
(Nordmeyer, 2019).
An Enterprise Resource Planning system is so much crucial in that it acts as a continuous
feedback loop where the various departments can freely share vital information between and
among them and provide timely feedback. The ERP will also be fundamental in integrating the
various software applications used by the Sugar Squared Company (Nordmeyer, 2019). From the
integration, the Company can enjoy the ease with which it can manage its financial and
purchasing activities, the inventory and the human resource. By use of the ERP system, it is also
possible for the Sugar Squared Company to divide its business operations into smaller
manageable units (Chofreh et al., 2018).
The Sugar Squared Company deals in several business functions. For convenience
purpose, it is much better for the Company to integrate all those functions into one system for
ease of accessibility. The ERP system also acts as a supporting agent whereas different businessrelated dimensions such as the designing of the management inventory, the pricing of products
and time management can all be realized through the use of the ERP software (Nordmeyer,
2019).
