Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is an application that integrates a company's various departments and functions into a single collaborative working environment or single system so that information can be shared and can serve the particular needs of different departments. Typical modules in ERP include financial management, procurement and human resources. These modules are flexible enough for customers to install selected modules or the entire ERP package.
