The Value and Importance of Partnering with Mergers for Small Restaurant Businesses: The Nature and Role of Mergers in the Implementation of Industry- Specific and Compatible ERP Manufacturing Software Applications Designed for the Needs of Small Restaurant Businesses.As noted previously, in the article from the series “How Industry- Specific Compatible ERP Manufacturing Software Solutions and Related Applications Designed for Implementation in the Restaurant Industry Work (Part III)”, there are various reasons why many businesses may wish to enter into the international cluster of ERP/Information/ Internet Technology relations. Some may wish to draw from all - or only some - of the multiple advantages presented by forming partnerships with all the parties involved (as is the case for example in a merger or business conglomerate - which can, under any aspects, be considered small- scale or miniature versions of a global associative industrial cluster such as the one that exists between the ERP/IT technology industrial sectors).
Other reasons to explain their individual decision to participate and form partnerships include the need to acquire an adequate understanding of the appropriate promotional tools (which are based on ERP technology and ERP manufacturing software applications), that are necessary to advertise their products, so they can expose them to bigger intranet/customer audiences. Other companies, instead, may be solely interested specifically in providing technical ERP and technological training for their employees; so that all company levels will know how to operate the multi- purpose functions of the company’s customized ERP manufacturing software solution to run either specific, single, or multiple (depending on the case) internal and external manufacturing, distribution and business/ market processes.
To understand how mergers – acting as collective collaborative bodies -can greatly benefit small businesses in the Restaurant industry, it is worthy to note that mergers create a system which places all participant parties in a condition of mutual and reciprocal growth and survival; one which is also promoted by the free and unrestricted exchange and inter- change of the respective functions/ roles played by each of the participants, and which affects everyone -from company employees to customers, vendors, consulting firms, supply/distribution sectors, manufacturing businesses of any type, local, state and national government, academic organizations and universities, professional institutions and anyone else that enters the “net” or “network” of ERP/Internet technology interests.
The reason is that, ultimately, associative clusters, by their very definition, are in fact net- working associations where every party can promote their business or discover the specific solution to their needs; including innovative marketing strategies to capture new audiences via the interchange of market logistics and technical ERP data and technological expertise regarding innovative technologies for new software upgrades and applications, or valuable market information as well as inside scoops into foreign audience/country demographics, and – last but not least - data on potential global customer audiences who may be interested in the specific services or products they offer. Such a network system assures that ERP technological expertise is disseminated and transferred back and forth continuously (touching new customer audiences and attracting them to the associative cluster) - and in the process - assimilated by every party in the chain of relations.
