Enterprise Resource Planning Systems as a Support Tool of Increasing of Performance of the Company
Nowadays, enterprises increasingly rely on modern Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) systems. These systems are used to improve the performance, quality and transparency of a company’s financial management, as well as to reduce the company’s costs and expand its customer base. These systems are part of Business Intelligence and they include metrics and methodologies aimed at improving the company’s performance. One way to improve a company’s performance is to implement Enterprise Resource Planning Systems into the corporate environment. The present article includes an assessment of a questionnaire survey that was carried out among enterprises in the Czech Republic, namely in the geographical areas of central and north-east Bohemia. It contains responses concerning the implementation of ERP systems, opinions on the use and operation of such systems and the information they provide, and – above all – it deals with problems that are encountered by ERP system users in corporate practice.
