Since its creation, Satelix has established itself as a major player in the world of stock and warehouse management solutions with its Satelix Logistique WMS, not only in France but also internationally. This phenomenon of internationalisation perfectly reflects the evolution of software packages and their importance. From a simple management tool to integrated solutions, find out how software packages have become essential tools for SMEs.


Software package: a long history

The history of software packages began in the 1960s with the emergence of the first corporate planning systems, also known as ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning). MRP, the abbreviation for Materials Requirements Planning, was born in response to companies' management and planning needs and problems.

Over the years, software packages have expanded beyond production management. They diversified to cover all corporate functions: accounting, human resources, supply chain, etc. It was not until the 1990s that these software packages really took off.

Today, they cover a wide range of business sectors and functionalities, with increasingly innovative and high-performance technologies.


A big family

Today, there are several main categories of software packages that meet specific needs:

• ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning): originally designed to facilitate resource management and planning, it is now integrated into all business functions

• CRM (Customer Relationship Management): to manage customer relations and facilitate interactions with customers and prospects;

• BI (Business Intelligence): provides data, analyses and reports to support decision-making;

• SCM (Supply Chain Management): to improve the coordination of supply chains, production and deliveries;

• WMS (Warehouse Management System): to optimise warehouse management.


Major challenges for SMEs

Implementing software packages is a real asset for SMEs. Optimising various operations while reducing costs enables companies to become more competitive. Better management will also enable them to be more responsive and adapt better to constant market changes. Finally, the integration of new technologies and, progressively, of artificial intelligence (AI) enables SMEs to be innovative and to enter into a system of continuous improvement.
