Cloud ERP is also hands-off, in a good way. SaaS ERP is always up-to-date, compatible with other applications, is available from anywhere with an internet connection, is secure, and has automated backup and recovery. And keeping it in tip-top running condition isn’t your responsibility. As a result, you’re freed from the ownership costs of expensive physical servers. And liberated from the ongoing expense of middleware, databases, networks, operating systems, user interfaces, virtual agents, support staff, and replication for failover and high availability.
With a cloud ERP, you’re investing in a modern cloud application that’s technologically risk-free, globally accepted and proven around the world. As well as supporting your business with the most current version, features, functions, and all-important mobility, a cloud ERP is constantly improving. It will have millions and millions of R&D dollars invested annually from the global software vendors committed to improving their software. So there’s no need to make a conscious price- and hassle-based decision about moving to the next version, and worry about the impact on your business. The process of continuous improvement of cloud ERP is part of the package.
Unless the circumstances are unique, it’s hard to see the sense in embracing a high-risk, on-premises solution that drives up costs and requires hands-on IT team management.
