Job Description for ERP Consultant

An ERP Consultant is much like a complex machine in how they operate. Most tasks that an ERP Consultant needs to accomplish are done through delegation of labor to other businesses and vendors to maximize productivity. What does fall onto an ERP Consultant is their ability to create, maintain, and operate a database that streamlines operations and allows everyone who needs data to get it. Even after the initial software is created to perform the needed tasks, an ERP Consultant is not done. It is vital that they document the state of configuration that their existing software is in. Analyzing and understanding their software allows an ERP Consultant to remove bloat and improve efficiency in their software.
