Enterprise Resource Planning for accountants

Sri Lanka should train its accountants in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) in a bid to export such services and earn foreign exchange, according to a top software expert.

“Sri Lanka has the most qualified accountants (CIMA), second to the UK and we want to train them as ERP consultants where the country can earn foreign exchange,” Sujatha Nadesan, CEO DacVision, a partner organisation of Microsoft Sri Lanka told The Sunday Times FT.

She made these comments on the sidelines of a press conference to launch Raffles Solutions with the Singapore based Thakral Group and DacVision . She said the two entities will start a training centre in Colombo to train people on ERP and Microsoft Dynamics Products.

“Sri Lanka has a large pool of accountants and ERP is an accounting and supply change system. Accountants have an understanding of such systems and we have a critical mass in accountants for such training,” she explained.
