Upgrades, deploying new modules and adding users in an on-premise environment could involve multiple vendors, headaches for your IT team and frustration within your user base. Solving those challenges with a hosted ERP solution is straightforward and allows your business to shift costs to your operating budget and lets you maintain a reasonable monthly fee instead of scattered expenses that can make it tough to figure out, report and justify the total cost of ownership of your ERP systems.
Agile Scaling and Deployment
Your business needs to be able to turn on a dime–to grow, contract, shift focus–and your business systems should be agile enough to help lead the way. If you’re spending a great deal of time focused on matching your software to your business needs, then you’re not able to have the laser focus on the needs of your customers that is required for businesses today. Quickly add modules or users and get your systems up and running accurately with minimal downtime.
Our hosted ERP products include:
Budgeting That Makes Sense
Technology budgets are increasingly complex, as the systems required to keep businesses competitive grow and evolve. Constant upgrades to an on-premise system can require costly annual maintenance fees plus one-off charges when something breaks or needs a modification. Moving to a hosted ERPs offers your business the ability to logically parcel out costs over a set period of time–without the big surprises and expenses that often come with a more traditional system. Also, the ability to shift your IT expenses from your capital to your operating budget makes sense for many businesses since large upfront expenditures can be difficult if not impossible to justify.
Secure Your Important Data
Your business data is arguably your biggest asset, and protecting it is a key initiative for many small- to medium-sized businesses. Rest assured that cloud-based ERP solutions are part of a highly secure environment, and the centralized administration allows you full oversight of the system and users.
Whether your workforce is mobile, remote or local a cloud-based ERP solution gives your users the tools that they need to be productive. Screen size becomes much less relevant, and small laptops and tablets for road warriors are the tool of the day. As long as your team can find a computer with access to the Internet, they can get to the information that they need to do their job effectively.
