ERP Glossary - U: Upgrade to User Interface

Upgrade (software)

A software upgrade is a general improvement of a software program. Continuous and significant upgrades are a competitive necessity; without them, competitors would soon be selling a better product. As a user, it is important to consider when upgrades to ERP are needed.

User Interface

User interface is a part of a computer program in which a human contributes to the operation of the program, either by inputting data, making a decision, or performing other types of work that are dependent on current conditions and priorities. User interfaces are typically specific screens, and are described in subjective terms, such as "friendly", meaning the screens and required actions are highly intuitive and easy to understand.
