Since 2001, the fate of Afghan economy was changed with the help of international community and hard-working Afghans. Existing governmental, non-governmental and private institution received aid and improved their business processes and meanwhile it was an absolute astounding opportunity for new businesses as well. As a result of Afghanistan government’s collaborative effort, Afghanistan Investment Support Agency (AISA) was established. AISA made it possible for Afghans to easily register new businesses and the year 2005 – 2009 was a booming period of new business.
To compete and achieve greater results, the new businesses must adopt well defined organizational standards and integrate technology into their business ecosystem. Majority of the Afghan-based businesses still use traditional pen and paper based model to manage their finances, human resources, sales and marketing, production management, asset management and other relevant business operations. The conventional model works perfectly fine but it lacks the crucial aspects of fast paced reporting when it comes to strategic planning and management. With the help of new and innovative business solutions, Afghanistan based business can leverage the opportunity to compete and grow efficiently and gain more market share. With improved business processes and innovative technology integration, businesses can always have quick snapshot of their overall organizational performance and can plan ahead their operations. This is the point where Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tools come of great use. With the help of these advanced ERP software, you can automate and integrate many of your business processes.
