Enterprise Resource Planning or ERP is a business management software that facilitates real-time management of business processes in a centralized manner. Being a system of integrated applications, it integrates business strategy, manufacturing, and development with sales and marketing in a single database. Essentially, an ERP-based software application uses a common interface accessible to managers and operators. It comes with secure authorization channels to provide hierarchical access to enterprise data. ERP in waste management remolds existing systems for greater efficiency.
Populaces and Industries, ranging from manufacturing, supply chain, construction, and real estate to food and beverages, produce billions of tonnes of waste every year. The alarming rate at which toxic wastes seem to be entering micro and nano-ecosystems is a matter of grave concern. The direct consequence is jeopardizing the health of an ecosystem and population across species. The broken pace of development and economic detriment is the tip of collateral damage that it poses. Waste management is, therefore an urgent obligation that businesses and governments owe to humankind.
At Oodles, we design AI-enabled ERP systems with features like real-time visibility, IoT sensors, big data capacity, and predictive analytics at their disposal. This makes ERP software the ideal instrument for waste management. In this blog, we will explore the prospects of utilizing ERP in waste management.
Need for an organized system for waste management
To responsibly undertake waste management, the system needs to be planned and implemented methodically. It begins with identifying the sources and types of waste, estimating finances to carry and treat waste, putting haulier in place, classifying and segregating it, and continuously scrutinizing the current state of these functions. With a growing consumer market, comes an unprecedented waste generation.
There is, thus, a need to gather and observe data to gauge existing systems and build an adequate, economic waste management system. Different types of wastes require different treatments. While biodegradable wastes make it to landfills, often electronic and plastic wastes end up there too. The process of separating waste and pushing it forward for recycle or reuse also falls under waste management.
At the same time, a common record of all data needs to be available for analysis and planning. Without it, management becomes erratic and haphazard.
Another stumbling block is dealing with financial restraints. There are often not enough resources allocated to the machinery and workforce required for managing waste. Here, effective strategies based on analysis of the current condition come into play.
All these variables are co-dependent and need to be considered together in a reliable system. It is only through an organized, integrated, versatile, and intelligent system like ERP that enterprises and governments can effectively dispose of waste. At Oodles, our experts design custom ERP services focused on the specific requirements of the field they’re deployed in.
Features of ERP in waste management systems
ERP software offers enterprise-wide integrations across all processing units. The management is end to end, as data across the enterprise is brought together into one database accessible through a common interface. All software and hardware components can, thus, be centrally managed while they carry on independent tasks. When all functional units of waste management systems work together, far-sighted decisions are made.
ERP systems bring real-time visibility and access to enterprise data. At the same time decisions are made and executed in real-time, ensuring quick response-time and efficiency. Visibility reduces scope of error in management and ensures toxic wastes are not released until treated as per standards.
3.Big data capacity
ERP systems employ cloud computing to store data. At Oodles, we undertake Cloud ERP development to save enterprises from storage issues and maintenance of hardware and software to sustain it. Also, enterprise data is available on all integrated applications in the ERP software according to its relevance to the application. With categories and sub-categories of waste and largescale sources of tonnes, capacity for large datasets enables analysis. Predictive analytics on this dataset will highlight patterns in waste production and disposal and aid policymakers to strategize sustainability.
4.Efficient, agile and secure
ERP systems are efficient owing to their modular nature, agile from their machine learning capacities and secure through multi-step verification. When systems are efficient and agile, they create space for innovation. Innovative methods for waste disposal available reduce the added financial burden on enterprises and governments and drive health and economic well-being.
