Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), also known as a financial system, is the term that is used to refer to software that handles many of a company's business processes. ERP is not necessarily a single product, but a suite of programs that talk to each other.
It is also quite common to refer to simpler systems which only deal with orders, warehouses and accounts as ERP systems. The accounting software is often fully integrated with a document centre, which handles the checking and approval of incoming invoices. The payroll system is often linked to a travel expenses management system, which handles expense reimbursements, subsistence and allowances concerning business travel. Visma Business and Power Office Go are examples of ERP systems that are used by SYSCO's customers.
