According to a recent study on ‘most challenging things about startups’, employee collaboration and management were the biggest issues faced by startups and SMEs across the world. This is one of the important parts of any successful business, which involves employees working together in a synchronized manner on a particular project to achieve the desired goal.
While employee collaboration may not seem an issue worth pondering upon, most startups still lack the planning and management due to lack of support among their staff making employee collaboration, an under estimation and in the long run, face loss. Why should a startup business invest in employee collaboration?

Reasons are simple:

  1. Approaching towards its goals effectively as one
  2. Greater flexibility due to mobility
  3. Support from higher departments, etc.

Nurturing employee collaboration without a specialized tool can be challenging for a startup while on the other hand, having too many processes can be damaging as well. One of the ways to facilitate successful employee collaboration would be the implementation of an ERP software. Now before dismissing the idea, you might want to go through the reasoning for the same.

Major places where employee collaboration is needed the most are the processes. Simple thing like approvals and invoices move from one department to the other and it is required that every department stays in sync to avoid delays and data duplication.

ERP software like Sage X3 can be implemented in the organization to have all the departments configured in the system to allow vital details and communication pass from one department to the other without any hassle. This not only relieves the burden of the teams to keep everything in sync, it also creates a transparent environment. When there is no communication between team members working on same project, it leads to failure of project or failure in achieving goals. A centralized and shared hub gives employees access to share important information and updates.

Take an example of an automation project manufacturing company.

When building a project for a client according to its terms and requirements, every member involved in building project must be aware of the conversations between the client and sales team or an inside sales executive. Imagine if a sales person after having all conversations with the client leaves the company, the precious data with him/her is not available to others. This eventually leads to chaos.

Now imagine another case wherein the manufacturer integrates the processes with ERP. This allows its employees to be updated about the complete client history leading to efficient performance. This kind of synchronization and collaboration helps the teams take sound decisions and keeps them constantly updated of every situation.
