When you are running a business, you know the pain to manage employees, customers, and projects separately and manually. Rather, you should leave it on a software that will handle these issues instead of you. Thus, you can have more time to focus on extending your business.

WP ERP is such a software that is capable of managing your ERP, CRM, and HRM seamlessly. With WP ERP, every member of the organization gets a dashboard that they can customize to display the information they need for their tasks. Furthermore, it gives them the latest updates in the schedules, tasks, and other news in the organization.

Today, in this blog post, we will review the WP ERP thoroughly and make a decision on whether you should pick WP ERP for your business or not.

Before diving into the review, let me show you why your business needs an ERP software for a better outcome.

Why Can’t You Avoid an ERP Software for Your Business?

Why Do You Need an ERP Software

Basically, ERP software is equipped with Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Human Resource Management (HRM), Account Management (AM), and other related features. These are the crucial factors that decide business is successful or wastage. So, the importance of ERP solution is enormous.

Customer Satisfaction: Customer satisfaction is the utmost priority for a business owner. The best way to improve customer satisfaction is to provide client-centered goods and services. With CRM, you can find out what your customers are actually craving for. A CRM solution helps you to access your customer contact information.

Along with contact information, an integrated CRM can show you details such as order history and billing information. This enables your team to see your clients more holistically to gain a better understanding of their wants and needs. The increased customer visibility helps you formulate your sales strategy for improved lead generation.

Employee Management: An HRP integrated ERP can help you in many ways. Starting from individual employees/department to salary, leave, and holidays, it has brought innovation in the control of all those fields very profoundly.

Account Management: Using the AR feature of an ERP, you can get rid of being struck with manual bookkeeping, financial report, income statements, invoices, balance sheets, etc. for a real accounts management solution in WordPress.

These features of ERP software can immensely save your time and money. So, we strongly recommend you to pick an ERP software for your business and revamp it again.

Now you are ready to go to the next phase. 

Completing the Setup Wizard

WP ERP will guide you through a simple activation wizard to complete the whole activation process.

Let’s follow-through. 

Step 1:

wp erp installation wizard

After you clicked on ‘Let’s Go!’, there is a  setup wizard that will take you to all the steps one by one. 

Though you can skip them and complete activation, our suggestion is to fill up all the necessary information in the beginning. 

Step 2:

wp erp installation wizard two

The core things you need to put in this stage are- your company name, the month when your financial year starts, when did you start your company, currency preference, and the types of business you are doing.  Then click on Continue. 

Step 3:

As we’ve mentioned in the beginning. WP ERP is a complete ERP solution, and one of the very first in the WordPress industry. It comes with four components or modules. They are-

  • HR (Human Resource Management)
  • CRM (Client Resource Management) 
  • Accounting
  • WP Project Manager

In this step, you can select all four, or click the slide to turn off any modules. Then click the ‘Continue’ button. Our suggestion is to turn off the WP Project Manager. It’s better to install WP PM separately form WordPress.org dashboard.

Step 4:

Here, you need to create the company departments. It’s possible to add as many departments as you want.  To do this, simply click on the ‘Add New’ and go on. Also if you want to skip this for future customization, do it as well.

Step 5:

Creating designations in your company means you tell the plugin how many people your business has and you want to track their data. For example, you can add Manager, Sr. Accountant, Marketing Lead, Area Supervisor or any major and minor designations within a second.

Step 6:

After completing the Designation Setup, it’s time for you to set the workdays. There are three alternatives- FullDay, Half Day, and Non-Working Day. So this stage lets you arrange your weekly holidays and working days.

Now click to continue. And you are done with the WP ERP installation process.

From this stage, you can add employees or directly go to your ERP dashboard. There are several settings and configurations which you will need to do from the dashboard anyway.

WP ERP Review (Key Features)

WP ERP comes with a bunch of amazing features to assist you in managing your business in an organized way. Here, we will review some top features of this software. Take a look at the list of features that we are going to review.

  • Employee Management
  • Project Management
  • Accounts Management
  • Customer Management

Let’s get started.

Employee Management

Employee Management

Suppose, you are running a company of “X” employees. Now you want to hire more employees for your business. Since your business is growing fast, you have to concentrate on lots of tasks. At the same time, you need to make sure Human Resource Management is performing well.

To avoid these hassles and make the long process of recruitment simple but efficient, you can use the Recruitment feature of WP ERP. You can also use automatic Attendance and Leave Management features. Thus you can save a lot of time and effort. 

Using these features like Recruitment, Attendance, Leave Management, you can take the full advantage of WP ERP for your business. 

Project Management

Project Management

When you are an owner of a big IT firm, you have to deal with developing, marketing, designing, content, and support team. All the teams have lots of different tasks every day. Some tasks are assigned to individuals, some need intra-team collaboration, while some need even more (inter-team collaboration). 

With the Project Management tool of WP ERP, you can manage and track all of these smoothly. It will allow you to measure your company performance with the reports and let you know which strategy needs to be adopted or modified.

This is the power of Built-in communication with privacy, Time Tracking, and the Advanced Reports feature of WP ERP. 

Accounts Management

Accounts Management

Let’s assume, Mr. “X” studied science but started a small business all by himself. But when the business grew, he needed to maintain a lot of tasks regarding accounting and customer relationships. 

He knew very little about these but with the help of the Accounting module, he could easily manage revenue, due invoices, pending payments, expenditure and much more. Managing bank account, seeing economics in graphs, transferring money – all became one-click tasks.

With features like Real-time transactions, Payment, Transfer, Invoices, and Growth reports of WP ERP, one can easily handle all the tasks of the accounting sector.

Customer Management

Customer management

The main purpose of a CRM solution is to reduce your hassle. It handles customers’ interaction in a smart way instead of you. You can manage your clients and import them to your CRM system using WP ERP.

A CRM solution is not only used for effective communication with customers but also lets you keep track of every interaction with your customers. It provides you with the facility to record email details, contact details, any previous interaction, order, and sales history (Online E-Commerce) and many customer-related details as well.

Moreover, most of the organizations are using CRM for lead nurturing, email marketing, and sales projection. So we can say that CRM integrated WP ERP can be your handy to manage small to medium businesses.
