IMPLEMENTATION OF AN ENTERPRISE RESOURCE PLANNING (ERP) AND ITS EFFECT ON THE MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING SYSTEM
Abstract: In the previous period, organizations from very different sectors have successfully adopted ERP systems. In this study, we will research the impact of ERP in the accounting industry regarding the case study from company in Bosnia and Herzegovina. By many theorists, accounting is usually described as the process of collecting, analyzing, and presenting financial data required for taking appropriate management decisions. Studies have explored the effects of IT in the business and accounting, but they didn’t cover complex technologies such as ERP. Utilizing ERP in accounting allows spending more time on analyzing the data instead of collecting it. This is possible because all information is stored in one place (database) which is easily accessed by everyone allowed to use it. With the successful implementation of ERP in company, accountants have more time to spend for analyzing and reporting, enhancing their roles, and shortening common tasks and activities. The aim of this paper is to explore the significance of ERP systems in management accounting. This research will try to understand what is the role of modern accountants. Enterprise resource planning software has shaped activities and processes in the accounting sector.
