The key is management; the better you manage, the better would be the results. This is the exactly where ERP or enterprise resource planning comes into play.

  2. Supply chain management
  3. Customer service
  4. Human resource management
  5. Project management

The food and such companies who are repeatedly chosen by the community have one feature in common and that is the presence of this.
