He further said railways is embarking upon the ERP programme, which will perhaps be the largest in the world.
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is business process management software that allows an organisation to use a system of integrated applications to manage the business and automate many back office functions related to technology, services and human resources. ERP software integrates all facets of an operation – including product planning, development, manufacturing, sales and marketing – in a single database, application and user interface.
Prabhu further said Indian economy will be benefiting from the demonetisation drive launched by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
