Working with Cloud ERP
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) has been around for some time. Historically, businesses have considered the technology as a costly and complicated undertaking, that takes years to put in place.
The evolution of cloud technology has changed all that.
Most modern software services are now offered via the cloud because it costs less and is quicker to implement than on-premise solutions. Cloud technology now provides businesses with a faster, simpler and more flexible ERP solution, whatever their size or complexity.
Lets take a look at some of the benefits a cloud-based ERP system has to offer.
Cloud services are provided on a pay-as-you-go basis known as SaaS (Software as a Service). Instead of paying for the ERP software (and hardware) up-front, you simply pay for what you use and the costs become opex, rather than capex.
Cloud services use industry-ready methodologies that allow project implementation to be as little as 8 weeks in certain instances.
Unlike an on-premise system, there are no lengthy and expensive maintenance processes and there is no need for an internal IT team to support your infrastructure. Updates and maintenance are taken care of by your ERP provider.
Remove the headache of securing your data. Your ERP provider has everything in place to protect your business intelligence, to world-class standards.
As cloud solutions use open standards, it’s much easier to integrate existing features and new developments.
No matter what changes your business or your industry faces, the cloud can easily adapt.
The key features of cloud-based ERP systems are the reporting and collaboration capabilities. Information can be passed between users easily and effectively.
