Comarch ERP Optima – ERP system (Enterprise resource planning) is a software for comprehensive enterprise management. Comprehensive, because the “resource planning” hidden under the name ERP really covers all areas of the company’s back office (sales, finance, accounting, human resources and squares, etc.). The modern ERP system is a universal tool that facilitates running a business, regardless of its size and industry. His most important distinguishing feature is work on one database. This means that data entered in one area of ​​the system, e.g. in commerce, are immediately visible to other users, e.g. in production or accounting.

Stability and security in ERP systems

A modern ERP system should be a scalable solution – adapting to the size of the company, the specifics of business processes and the structure of its business (e.g. multi-activity). This means that the increase in the number of software users and the amount of data does not affect its speed of operation and stability. This is possible thanks to the appropriate programming architecture of the solution (adapted to both smaller and very large clients) – e.g. the use of dynamic infrastructure in cloud solutions.

The usefulness of any ERP system will drop very quickly if it is deprived of adequate professional care. Therefore, it is very important that the solution we use has full support of the manufacturer or supplier, ensuring, among others:

• its current update (functional extensions, adaptation to changes in regulations),

• expert consultations (advice on using the system and its development, solving user problems),

• system development (e.g. with additional, dedicated industry capabilities)

• system maintenance and backup of data saved in it,

• fix any software errors
