Solve the Enterprise Challenges: Operating Across Multiple Locations

solve the Enterprise Challenges | ERP Infor


Enterprises could be categorized as large companies. More often than not, subsidiaries of enterprises are spread across the globe. Subsidiaries and parent company should operate together in order to achieve optimum efficiency. However, these are the challenges that the enterprise usually face such as: unable to plan holistically, multiple currencies, complex intercompany transfers, and siloed software applications.


Challenges of having companies in different locations


In terms of the incapability of planning holistically, this is a challenge for the enterprise because the enterprise is not aware of the statistics of each subsidiary. Operating across multiple locations is also a challenge because each subsidiary has different customer demands from each other. For example, the enterprises that are located in developed countries are catering customers that have a different mindset and lifestyle than enterprises located in developing countries. Therefore, since the subsidiary of the enterprises only knows the customer profile of the location they are located in, they can only plan to run their own subsidiary.


Another challenge that the enterprise face is multicurrency. Since enterprises are located in various places across the globe, it is certain that they must use different currencies to do transactions. Each subsidiary uses a different currency to purchase equipment and to sell the finished products. These transactions will be recorded in the financial report. The compilation of financial reports is complex due to stocks, expenses, and intercompany transactions. This turns into pain for the finance team, as they have to manually convert each currency into home currency then compiling it to make the financial report. Not to mention, the reference of currency rate in different locations that could be different. Moreover, if the parent company decides to request for each subsidiary's financial report, each subsidiary has to convert the numbers in the report to be the currency that the parent company uses.


The effects of using different systems


While operating across multiple locations, enterprises may face a challenge regarding siloed software applications. The case applies if the software installed in the enterprise is only used to solve one task in one location. This will lead employees to manually compile data from all of the company’s location. During the data compilation, there is a high risk of errors and there is no reference data.
