It’s been said that baseball fans pay more attention to statistics than CPAs do. The same could be said about the shortcomings of most ERP software when it comes to paying attention to your data. Consider these limitations in baseball terms:
If Major League Baseball (MLB) used batch processing; results and statistics would not be available until hours, days, weeks, or even months after the game. This means managers would need to base today’s plays off old games’ results. Without knowing the results of each play as it occurs, how would the game go on? Players, coaches, sportscasters, and even fans are unable to do their jobs effectively without this knowledge. So, how can business managers be expected to make effective business decisions today by analyzing data from last quarter? Simply put, they can’t. But with Carillon ERP’s support for Know it now® management, they can!
Know it now® is a process that enables you to maximize knowledge by increasing the availability and accuracy of data and by maintaining a cohesive network within your organization. This management method is embedded in Carillon ERP to optimize the efficiency of your business operations. It's emphasis on real-time operations is the driving force behind Carillon. Carillon processes data immediately upon its entry and makes it readily available to access from any device in the system.
An ERP system that operates in real time is crucial for management to make informed business decisions and also makes it possible to correct issues before they occur. However, if the real-time data is inaccurate, they may as well base their decisions off another company’s data. To guarantee more accurate data, we’ve designed Carillon ERP to be a whole-company solution. While it was generally accepted that accountants are the sole transacting force of an organization, we understand they have no first-hand knowledge of the transactions they are recording. This disconnect can cause inaccurate financial results, which then leads management to make decisions that may not be the most efficient given the actual results. By holding the person or department with first-hand knowledge of the transaction responsible for recording it, not only does Carillon ensure more precise data, it keeps data up-to-date since transactions can be entered the moment they occur. By implementing Know it now® management, our clients are able to make more informed business decisions and achieve higher levels of efficiency, resulting in higher profit margins.
In addition to eliminating many discrepancies, Know it now® creates a cohesive network within your organization. Our team of experts works with you to iron out the kinks in your information chain and connect all ends of your business, giving everyone immediate access to the information they need to work efficiently. With all the information you feed your accounting system, isn’t it time it starts giving you accurate, up-to-date information in return?
