Collaboration Drives ERP Innovation
Collaboration today is simpler than ever before with the advent of integrated social collaboration tools and Agile Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions. In the ERP context, users participate as equals in the platform and interact in real time, collaborate around a business object within the ERP, and bring people together from different departments to share their expertise and increase productivity. This opens up conversations beyond business walls to customers and suppliers. Collaboration features such as messaging, presence and notification, use of established social networking technique concepts like message streams, hash tags, status updates, and subscriptions, as well as crowd sourcing further promote the sharing and documenting of ideas within the organization’s ERP.
