Real estate companies work in a highly challenging ecosystem. The industry moves at a fast pace and they need to constantly be up-to-date with information. An efficient ERP system can streamline their workflow from lead management to project closure. A web-based ERP system integrated with a CRM system can reduce operating costs, provide holistic view of ongoing projects, facilitate day-to-day management, eliminate wastage and enable decision-making.

Here’s how the real estate vertical can benefit from a robust ERP system:

Lease management

Procurement and inventory management

An ERP system can expedite generation of material requirement planning, preparation of purchase orders, creation of evaluation charts for procurement, maintenance of supplier directory and tracking of material shipments until delivery.

Finance management

Cloud-enabled ERP systems gather real-time data from accounting, sales and purchase departments and generate error-free reconciliation between materials procured, utilised, work in progress and spill over.
