Delivering Mobile ERP With A Hybrid ERP Solution

get mobile with hybrid ERP

What are the numbers on the Mobile ERP opportunity for businesses? There is no doubt that the computer in our pockets is one of the wonders of the tech world. A recent IDC report said that overall smartphone shipments would hit around 1.5 billion units by the end of 2017, while phablets—devices with a screen size of 5.5 inches to 7 inches—will account for more than 50 percent of the smartphone market by 2021. People now consume more data on their mobile devices than ever before, but the expanding mobile workforce means that companies need to respond and adapt. For manufacturers and distributors, their ERP system is ground zero for these changes. 

The Advantage of the Mobile Employee

Many legacy ERP systems were not designed for enterprise mobility. Employees came to work, used the software provided by the company and went home. Before the iPhone raised the bar in terms of what a mobile phone could do, the de facto mobile business tool was the Blackberry, which was limited in so many ways. Enterprise mobile apps were in short supply and intuitive user interfaces were something that existed in science fiction.

As devices evolved in line with the cloud, mobile enterprise management (MDM) became more of a priority for both IT teams and company decision makers. Letting people bring their own devices to work brought certain concerns into sharp focus, many of which were directly linked to the means of production itself. Now, employees are more often than not checking emails on their smartphones and accessing work-related information while out of the office.

Encouraging people to do their job on a mobile device opens up a business to a whole new level of functionality. Add in the advantages of the cloud, and it becomes clear that companies need to have answers to certain questions before making changes to their ERP software systems.

For example, in what way does a company want to use mobile devices or cloud-connected terminals as part of its working practices? Can mobility be integrated into existing systems, and how do companies make certain that their ERP software is compatible with the latest smartphones? How can you make these devices secure? And who will be responsible for overseeing the entire process? 

The answers to the these questions can be found in hybrid ERP software that provides both access to both on-site systems and cloud solutions.

Making The Most Of Mobile ERP

One of the quickest ways to upgrade ERP software is to deploy enterprise mobility through a hybrid ERP integration. In essence, the introduction of a hybrid ERP solution makes mobile ERP processes more manageable, giving people access to real-time information irrespective of where they are.

IDC has said that cloud IT infrastructure spending will hit $53.1 billion by 2019 and account for 46 percent of total enterprise IT infrastructure. If we take into account that people are unlikely to reduce the time spent on their mobile devices in the next 18 months, then it follows that a company must make certain its mobile ERP applications are up to the task. And if IDC's predictions are correct, then it doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that an existing ERP software system might need to up its game.
