Todat the business is facing a number of challenges – on the one hand, the significant increase in the cost of goods, raw materials and energy, on the other hand, the difficulty of supply chains, and in addition is the increase in the cost of human resources. It is obvious that the opportunities for impact in order to maintain and even increase profitability are limited mainly to the optimization of processes and operating costs. How can all this happen in practice and do companies still have anything else to optimize? In recent years, many businesses have invested time and effort in improving skills, implementing methodologies for process and project management. However, the share of companies in Bulgaria that have implemented complete software solutions – ERP, which manages all units and activities in a single system, is still relatively low at around 21.8% *. Only 16.9% of companies using customer relationship management (CRM) systems *. Looking at these data, the topic of digitalization and implementation of complete solutions is changing from actual to hot topic. Comprehensive should be understood as software systems that exchange information between all departments, suppliers, customers, partners and provide real-time flexible opportunities for forecasting, response and profitable management decisions.
