ERP and EPM differ in several ways. Learn how the individual systems work alone, how the compliment each other and how they can increase an organisations efficiency.
While the acronyms ERP and EPM are similar, the two systems serve different purposes, and company leaders should learn about each to determine if their organisation should purchase enterprise performance management software in addition to their enterprise resource planning platform.
An ERP system helps a company manage its business and integrates multiple processes and systems. For example, ERP software can automate financial approvals and reporting.
