Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is a software that can combine the facets and processes of a business into one integrated system. For most B2B companies, a functional ERP ensures different business management applications work together. Many back-office functions, such as Information Technology (IT) services, inventory software, warehouse management, and HR functions can be completed harmoniously with the use of ERP software. With ERP e-commerce integration, you benefit from a single, unified data hub that eliminates silos. 

Add-on ERP modules allow smaller organizations to implement functionality over time to save money and resources. This allows these organizations to grow into their ERP system as their organization scales for growth instead of implementing all functionality at once. 

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) in refers to a type of software that organizations use to manage day-to-day Inventory activities such as Auction Posting, Edit Auction, Manage Auction, Drop Shipper Upload,Image Uploads, Preview Auction, Catalogs and Email Marketing. A complete ERP Inventory suite of Auction.ioalso includes Inventory Products, Draft, Live Products, Closed Products and the Control of Making Edits, sorting positions, move product from one Auction to Different Auction, shifting control to one Auction to Different Auction, Column Settings and Exporting Lots. 

ERP systems tie together a multitude of business processes and enable the flow of data between them. By collecting an organization’s shared transactional data from multiple sources, ERP systems eliminate data duplication and provide data integrity with a single source of truth.

Today, ERP systems are critical for managing thousands of businesses of all sizes and in all industries. To these companies, ERP is as indispensable as the electricity that keeps the lights on.

How does an ERP integrated portal work:
With the implementation of ERP software, your e-commerce website is more manageable and easily organized with a streamlined order process. In a new era of buying, more value is placed on transparency than ever before. With ERP e-commerce integration, your customer is kept in the loop on the Inventory Management process. Your business benefits from the software because your inventory data remains accurate and organized throughout the sale, and each step of the process is automated. 
Companies that excel at inventory management drive the maximum amount of profit and customer satisfaction from the least amount of investment in resource. 
Companies that integrate their enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems with inventory management functionality have a competitive advantage. The main competitive advantage, however, comes from being able to share information within different parts of their business in real-time.
