A question we get asked often is whether or not a cloud-based solution is right for a customers business. The pro’s and con’s are easy enough to think on without a fancy degree in computer technology. Let’s take a look at the key reasons we think you should consider the cloud:
Up and running in no time with money to save
If your company is looking to switch to an ERP, but are deterred by the cost – saving time on hardware installation can be the deal-breaker. Deploying a new solution on-premise can take a while because of procuring and installing the IT infrastructure. Implementing a cloud ERP can easily cut your deployment time in half.
“We already have hardware though!”
That’s okay. If your company has an ERP solution, but outdated hardware – again, this might be the deal-breaker. We won’t lie, a hardware refresh can be expensive. A transition to the cloud could cut your cost exponentially by placing the hardware ownership on your cloud-based provider’s shoulders instead of on yours.
Hardware, installation, and maintenance costs going to your cloud-based provider frees up your finances for taking your business to new heights.
Pay As You Go
Some companies are just starting up and some have variable staff based on the jobs and projects lined up at the time. Spending thousands on a hardware solution is a huge commitment if you aren’t sure where you want to take your business yet or who’s clocking in next week. A cloud-based solution allows you to purchase the exact number of licenses you need each month on a month-to-month basis. No muss, no fuss!
Accessible From Everywhere
A huge perk of a cloud-based solution is having the ability to access your data everywhere. Working from home, the office, or even on the road – just got easier.
Cloud-based providers are often held to a higher standard by many organizations. This pressure means your cloud-based provider will ensure their systems have industry-standard data security certifications, disaster recovery, and back up procedures in place.
