What is ERP?

ERP, or Enterprise Resource Planning, originally refers to a system used for resource planning within an organization or business. A typical ERP system encompasses all the common functions of an organization. The organization can be a business,  non-profit organization,  non-governmental organization, etc. ERP software integrates the basic functions of an organization into a single system.

ERP Trends in VietNam

In recent years, the ERP solution market in Vietnam has been vibrant as more businesses aim to enhance their management processes to utilize resources in their production and business operations. However, a company may choose to purchase specific packages based on its capabilities and needs rather than acquiring the entire suite (as they may not require all the functionalities).

Currently, many companies in Vietnam are implementing ERP in their operations. For example, The Gioi Di Dong shared in an interview back in 2009 that they had developed their own ERP system with various functions, covering administration, human resources, inventory management, and warranty services. If companies do not use their own-made solution like The Gioi Di Dong, they can find ready-built solutions and customize them according to their needs (or hire a third-party company for customization).

Notable ERP software includes SAP ERP, Infor ERP LN, and Oracle E-Business Suite. These are well-known ERP names, and their software is designed for medium and large-sized companies. However, for the majority of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Vietnam, using such large ERPs may be overly expensive and beyond their requirements. The ERP solution market in Vietnam is rapidly growing, offering affordable options without compromising quality compared to larger software companies.
