Enterprise Resource Planning [ERP] systems are integrated computer systems that share management information across many departments within an organisation.  For example, most systems include finance modules, human resource systems, customer relationship management, procurement and inventory control systems, amongst others.  The purpose is to enable the flow of information between managers within the organisation and create a single version of data so that decisions are based on consistent views of common data.
