Moving Enterprise Resource Planning to the cloud is the answer to the growing needs of efficient computing and storage of every cash crunched business with a hunger for growth.
While not all Cloud ERPs are the same, shifting to a Cloud ERP infrastructure makes a lot of sense for a smaller business. Delocalizing human effort is the first step to growing a business and taking ERP to the cloud is the first step towards it.
Moreover, lowering internet costs over the world, wider network coverage and cut throat competition in the small-to-medium company size bracket really spells it out: Cloud ERP is the new wave a growing business does not want to miss out on.
Its monthly/recurring payment plans cost less than say purchasing an ERP for your business outright. Setting up entirely new infrastructures and data centers often blows a company out of cash but Cloud ERP allows you to avail just the right computing power and storage you need for a fraction of the cost.
Reduces the upfront costs of buying new application software licenses, instead a more economical monthly/recurring payment plan for using the same software can be chosen.
Tech support and other IT services are managed by data centers, saving the most precious resource in a growing business: time.
Reduces your worries each time you need to buy up more storage spaces or computing power for your growing business: all the logistics, effectuating new infrastructure and setting up of data servers is managed by a central cloud service so that you can devote more of your precious time to actually filling up the extra storage instead of arranging for it.
Because it’s got cloud
Harnessing the power of the cloud, it allows for remote access to the company databases with just a working internet connection. Expansion of a small business to new locations becomes easier.
Upgrades and maintenance of the database system is all handled by the cloud vendor leaving more time in hand to build a growing business
Data is not stored locally on company servers, avoiding a targeted attack.
Since data is stored and backed up on the cloud, this generates more resources to be spent on driving the business forward rather than worrying about data security or backup.
