Its known to all that ERP is a set of applications that integrates business processes for enterprises. It collects, stores and evaluates data from various business activities. In the presence of ERP business functions become smooth, whereas, absence of ERP often leads to slower productivity and loss of revenue. The retail industry just like any other industry has to look after multiple activities for smooth sailing. Lack of suitable tools often brings unwarned obligations which make the employees work harder to meet the goals. Till today many modern retailers have one foot in modern trade format and another foot is still in traditional retail practices. Retailers work on tight margins, face increased competition from other modern trades and e-commerce sites and manage store employees. ERP can shed light on these aspects of the retail industry and help create scalability. Even though the information regarding ERP is widely available, many traditional retailers still quiver to take a step towards ERP integration.
