Software Evaluation - What is EAM (Enterprise Asset Management Software)?

ERP Software (Enterprise Resource Planning) is the control of business processes using a software package that integrates all the business functions in an enterprise by storing their data on a common database. An ERP Software package is not really about either Resources or Planning but it is definitely about controlling everything that happens in your business with an Enterprise Software System.

Some of the functions of ERP are manufacturing, shipping, order fulfillment, Inventory and Accounting. All processes from manufacturing to receiving orders, to shipping, invoicing and accounts payable are included on this common, ERP database.

EAM Software

EAM or Enterprise Asset Management Software differs from ERP Software in that it is relates only to a company's assets. In this case all of the information about a company's assets is stored on a common database.

The EAM software will also integrate with other systems such as that controlling BOM, manufacturing software scheduling, general ledger, projects and planning.
