ERP allows a considerable amount of integration between different divisions of the business, such as, marketing, accounting, purchase, and warehousing. With the implementation of ERP systems becoming more and more complex, companies are considering end-to-end ERP outsourcing as the best way to unleash the power of an ERP system, to obtain maximum functionality with minimum risk. ERP systems can be notoriously complex, and installing the software often force companies to change internal processes. Acclaim provides customized ERP solutions addressing the specific need of a company.
The implementation of an ERP system involves a complex set of tasks, from system selection and design, to installation and tuning, to maintenance and upgrades. The core set of technologies and capabilities needed to accomplish these tasks is not often obtainable in-house, due to high costs and lack of resources.
Companies are still able to implement and maintain a strategic ERP system while controlling costs by outsourcing the development expertise. The benefits of ERP system outsourcing can be enormous, depending on the company, its business model, and the scope of its internal IT requirements and budget

In contrast, enterprise players must Web-enable their ERP infrastructures to keep up with emerging business challenges, foremost of which is the increasing business-to-business (B2B) transaction done over the Internet
Web-based applications and telecommunications allow virtually seamless, almost real-time integration with suppliers, vendors and even customers. With increased competition and the broad acceptance of technology as a business driver, IT investments must include components that will either immediately or eventually embrace new, and innovative market opportunities.
With the advent of the latest in IT innovations, organizations can extend their enterprises by bringing suppliers and vendors into a seamless communication loop of business possibilities. E-commerce makes visible all the supply and demand points across the value chain. When a customer wants a product or service, an online order triggers a series of complex and tightly integrated real-time transactions that fulfill the request, from procurement through manufacturing to shipping.
For consumers, round-the-clock access to products and services as well as the power to develop and tailor the products they seek will foster increased customer satisfaction, and in turn, increased retention rates; which brings Acclaim to the next initiative.
Customer satisfaction and retention are the only real measures of success. Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems are designed to bring organizations closer to their customers, to serve them better, anticipate their needs, react more quickly, and focus more on what they value. CRM solutions enable corporations to effectively measure the value of their exchanges with all their business associates.
CRM creates a real-time, interactive feedback loop from customers to operations, making it possible to forecast, manage, and meet customer expectations accurately and consistently. Through CRM, an organization manages the entire life cycle of its customer relationships, including marketing analysis and planning, customer acquisition and retention, order management, and customer service and support. Irrespective of whom the customer interacts with, all information is gathered and stored in one central system to give the company the opportunity to serve customers better. This centralized information lets companies better identify new growth opportunities and portray a single image.
Supply Chain Management is defined as managing supply and demand along with ordering, manufacturing, warehousing, inventory-tracking and distribution of a product. By integrating each functional area into a comprehensive strategy, organizations can address the key issues of cost, speed, complexity, flexibility of response, and customer needs.
An organization that can provide products and services faster and at lower price is one that best manages its materials, information, cash, and work processes. Supply chain management is a strategic imperative for accomplishing these goals.
Handling personnel-related tasks for corporate managers and individual employees. Examples:
Business intelligence helps executives enhance shareholder value by integrating strategic operational and financial data, from both internal and external sources, creating a robust decision-support tool.
Information warehouses provide ready access to multiple databases on multiple platforms across the enterprise. With up-to-the-minute facts and figures, executives have a strong foundation on which to base decisions and can use scenario modeling to validate those decisions.
Quickly identify their strengths, pinpoint weaknesses, uncover new opportunities, capitalize on trends, and plan accordingly. They can combine historical and predictive views of their company's performance with information about financial and non-financial drivers of business.
The idea is to get the right information to the right people at the right time, as well as the information that matter most--answers backed by collective enterprise fact, not opinion.
Almost all major vendors of ERP systems are developing or have developed portals as easy-to-use gateways to ERP applications and data for professionals supporting E-business operations. Several vendors are setting up online marketplaces, where businesses can purchase goods. They are also adding supply-chain and web transaction software in a bid to provide across-the-board E-business capabilities.
