II. SITUATION AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY APPLICATION
1. Current status of IT applications in Tran Anh.
Tran Anh also began applying information technology to business processes since
2006, since the company was only business of commodity computers. So far, the company
has become the supermarket business corporations but on the application of information
technology has not developed much.
First, about the application software, the company has now only financial software
management accounting and inventory management software. Two applications are
currently being operated very well because the whole 02 are ordered separately as requested
by company leaders. About financial accounting software, in addition to the management
accounting profession of the state, this software also doubles as the management of
purchases and sales. Bill of sale and selling process is also incorporated into this software.
In addition, system management reports for management as well be ordered separately
according to company requirements. Similar to financial accounting software, warehouse
management software is also made for Tran Anh Company with typical management system
with bar code inventory management in detail each component in warehouse. All entry and
inventory systems use barcode system.
Second, the e-commerce application, Tran Anh has Website at address
www.trananh.vn and personal e-mail inbox. Website of Tran Anh always has large traffic.
All operations on sales, promotion information and consulting services customer care ... are
to be deployed on this Website. In early 2013, Tran Anh also joined Facebook - the social
networking site to spread the great features of this social network.
Although current applications are still operating well, however today, the numbers of
business locations by Tran Anh are 12. With over 1000 employees and over 100,000
customers, existing applications are not sufficient to meet the current and the system has
revealed many shortcomings.
Financial accounting software with integrated sales management software and
connect to the warehouse management software leads to an enlarged database quickly.
Language and database are built on older technologies should be limited by capacity and
processing speeds result in very slow access speeds and frequent errors. These problems can
be overcome but the speed greatly affects the employee's work and the operation of the
system. This weakness has led to an inability to connect online with each other selling
points. Data updated from time to time be pre-booked and are not continuous and online.
Generally, the software did not meet the real needs of today's limiting and speed of service
2. Overall solution development and application of information technology in
Currently, Tran Anh has 12 business locations electronics stores in Hanoi area with
over 1000 employees. The larger the enterprise is competitive pressures and pressure as well
as higher management. The discrete process management, complex information systems,
many if not kept pace with changes every hour of reality is the major obstacle for businesses
in race improve quality, reduce cost product - services to meet the increasing requirements
of customers ... therefore, the urgent issue of the company is:
How to manage and control the sales policy and sales analysis of business processes?
How to control the situation and planned inventory supply of materials in time? How
to plan shopping to serve business?
How to effective analysis as well as the profit and loss for an order?
How to monitor and control the timely financial condition, budgets, expenses and
How to capture and timely control the activities of the company and its subsidiaries
at anytime and anywhere. How managers can quickly grasp the situation changes in
the operation of their business to take timely decisions?
How to enter data quickly and accurately, reduce risk, errors in data entry process,
while ensuring the safety and security of data?
The question posed is quite a headache problem for corporate governance. The
answer is to have a system of software applications that support a comprehensive and
centralized management of all the resources, all the company's data. Data is entered only
once and is used throughout the operation of the company. For example, with an imported
item, it will only be entered once and the information about the item that will be managed
from the point of purchase until it was sold and moved to the warranty. Whether sitting
where specialized professionals and executives can also have the same flow of information
and updated online. Currently, this solution has existed in the world and in Vietnam. This is
a management software solution for Enterprise Resource Planning also known as ERP. With
ERP software, all the information will now be managed centrally, as a whole company. This
is the solution that Tran Anh needs to have in the future.
III. ERP IMPLEMENTATION PLAN IN TRAN ANH
1. Why deploy ERP software?
a. ERP is the perfect solution for overall stable environment.
With over 12 years of development, Tran Anh has become a leading company in
home appliance business. Today, with over 1000 employees, operate apparatus of Tran Anh
is running smoothly and the working environment is very stable. The stages in the system
include consulting order from the customer care until all is done according to standard
procedures and customer special praise. With ERP solutions, business data will be operated
in accordance with existing procedures. The flow of information is entered once and saved
data transfer across the system in accordance with the process and ensure consistency.
b. ERP solution to improve business efficiency
An ERP system with functions such as CRM or sales channel management solution
can help businesses increase efficiency of business operations to better cope with the effects
of the economy. Along with the enterprise ERP can allow business to operate more
efficiently while using less manpower, thus saving the cost of wage labor. In terms of
operational processes, ERP enables businesses to automate business processes manually
before and totally eliminate redundant activities, not deliver value. In addition, ERP helps
businesses to better meet customer needs while reducing inventory costs and transportation.
c. As the trend needs to be done.
ERP is an inevitable trend because this trend is the result of five other important
trends, recognizing trends right age and time to suit changing trends is the most important
part in the strategic planning of each company.
The first relates to the Internet is changing the world every day, every hour. If the
highway can only shorten the geographical distance, the internet really remove them ... In
other words in future, every company use internet.
The second is globalization, this trend is due to the initiative developed countries,
and underdeveloped countries must be followed. In the process of globalization,
international competition will gradually replace domestic competition. Businesses are no
longer in the auspices of the State. In the near future, a company cannot afford to lose
international competitiveness at the local market.
Third, the pace of change is faster. We easily observe the dizzying change of product
design and manufacturing technology to create them. If the characteristics of quality '80s,
'90s restructuring is characterized by decades in which we live is the speed. Access to more
information is profoundly changed the lifestyle of the consumer. When business activities as
required by the market to achieve very high speed, then the business itself has changed. In
future only those companies with the ability to react quickly to new market changes likely
to survive and grow.
The fourth is the customer's interests which are considered more important than ever;
consumers are more knowledgeable, demanding increasingly high and more choice for any
products or services. In the future the company only needs to understand and meet the
interests of new customers have the ability to survive and grow.
The fifth is the formation of an information society. In recent times, we often hear the
phrase "knowledge economy". The economy also has another name and information society.
From a market perspective, such as a hurricane, the information the consumer has changed
profoundly and comprehensively. They not only have information on pricing, products of a
company but also familiar enough information about alternative products of competing
firms. The access to information is open for businesses new business opportunities.
Information becomes a competitive advantage. So in this context, businesses cannot survive
and grow if it lacks personal information.
Because of the above reasons, ERP is an inevitable trend and Tran Anh is certainly
not an exception.
