Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
As part of the IFRC Agenda for Renewal process, a new ERP software was implemented to improve agility and efficiency in our day to day business activities across six functional workstreams; Finance, Logistics, Human Resources, Partnerships & Resource Development (PRD), Programs & Operations (P&O) and Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting (PMER) and three supporting ones, Digital Transformation, Training and Localisation & User Satisfaction.
The ERP Project will:
Enable the flow of information so that all our processes become connected globally.
Integrate more than 20 IFRC systems that are currently operating independently, eliminating data duplication and providing data integrity.
Increase efficiency by simplifying work processes and automate repetitive tasks.
Enable us to make well informed and precise decisions.
Facilitate collaboration and communication across IFRC departments and locations globally.
Improve interdepartmental collaboration and remote communication to promote a change culture.
Empower staff to embrace new technologies and ways of working.
