Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is, by definition, an integrated computer-centered system aimed at managing internal and external organization resources. Among the resources are: finance, human resources, materials as well as tangible assets. Simultaneously, ERP is an application and software architecture that increases the effectiveness of information flows between different business functions both inside and outside an organization, thus being an enterprise-comprehensive system of information. Thanks to a centralized database and working on a common computing platform, ERP unites various business operations into a homogenous system environment.
