Enterprise resource planning for nonprofits
Aligning people, processes and technology across your organization
The lack of communication between departments at some organizations can make it nearly impossible for management to extract the information it needs to make critical decisions. This is not a problem that is exclusive to nonprofits: Many commercial organizations have struggled to break down the barriers, both within the company and among customers and suppliers, that prevent obtaining information.
By aligning people, processes and technology, enterprise resource planning (ERP) for nonprofit organizations effectively utilizes and integrates resources — people, programs, assets, knowledge and technology — throughout an organization to achieve higher levels of performance.
But does your organization need an ERP system? If management is spending more time trying to get information out of its system and not enough time using the information to plan the organization’s future, ERP may be the answer.
