Starting from better customer handling to data management, finance planning and implementing productive ideas to improve the service all can be done using a proper ERP system (Haddara 2014). Automation in data collection and storing is a major criterion for SDC as they are facing problem with customer data storage and providing service at the same time.

Such ERP systems provide perfect solution for data storing, automatic up gradation and financial and business planning to expand the market. In addition to these, the later one is also supported by different products of Microsoft, which are helpful for any enterprise for documentation.
