How is Umoja different from the systems we already use?

An ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system provides an efficient means for transferring and sharing information across many different functions across a business, rather than having to maintain parallel versions of that information in multiple unique systems. This allows the organization to reduce redundant effort and eliminate conflicting information concerning vendors, clients, resources, employees, and other critical data used to make decisions and complete transactions.

In order for such a system to be truly effective, our organization will first have to fundamentally change and modernize how day-to-day work is carried out, by streamlining and simplifying processes.
