6 Reasons for SMEs to move to a cloud ERP

3 March 2020 5 MIN READ

With more and more businesses moving their ERP to the cloud version, it’s becoming evident that there is a worldwide attention and momentum to move your business to the cloud. There is no doubt that the adoption levels of the cloud have significantly risen over the years.  If you believe that cloud is just a marketing term used by companies to sell their software then it’s time to understand that the cloud has clear benefits that are hard to resist. 

Here are various reasons covered which states why your optimal business solution rests in the cloud. 

1. Reduced Cost

Cloud-based ERP systems have a low implementation cost as opposed to the traditional and hosted model. There is no hardware setup, meaning the program can hit the ground running without the business experiencing system downtime. Server maintenance is eliminated, meaning the dependency on the IT department is also alleviated. Software additions and upgrades happen in the cloud without any downtime. Going to the cloud means a great sigh of relief and saved costs.  

So, there is no need to squeeze out every last minute of juice from your aging system when the deployment to the cloud can be made easier with simplicity. All the costs we typically incur with system upgrade is outweighed while dealing with a Cloud ERP. 

2. Designed for Today’s Millennials 

Flexibility is key in today’s modern workplace. Employees can access cloud-based ERP from anytime and anywhere. If an employee has gone for a meeting or out for some urgent work, they can still give an immediate answer to a query or just about anything. Staff can also update apps as soon as they connect with no hassle. There is no VPN or any other formalities to login.  

Cloud-based ERP is designed for today’s millennials, which means employees can work comfortably from anywhere. With this, employees are not limited by a desktop or heavy corporate laptop. Your employees can access the Cloud ERP from their devices with ease.

3.  High Security 

The Cloud model offers a secure gateway for remote access that avoids any probability of falling into the wrong hands. The sensitive information is secured which means there is no chance of data loss, data breach, theft or any other breach. Higher availability, disaster recovery plans, and proper data backup ensure that your data is safe and sound.   

4. You pay for what you use

Legacy software may have confined space to store your sensitive data and the costs could be higher. But, cloud solution facilitates users to pay for only storage that he wants to use and scale up and down easily.  

5.   Less Deployment Time  

The deployment time of a cloud-based model is much shorter as compared to on-premise. You can easily scale up or down as when the need arrives. On-premise usually takes a long time to implement and thus ROI could be much lower than that of on-cloud in the long run. 

6 . Assortment of benefits

Cloud benefits are tangible and they are replete with varied business benefits such as heightened security, disaster recovery plans, and easy scalability.  Simply put, most leading organizations cannot devote the time and resources needed to compete with what a cloud provider can render to an ERP implementation, which includes added flexibility, regular updates, and hardware resources.

With cloud based ERP offering so many benefits, why even think about an on-premise option? The compelling benefits of Cloud ERP are faster deployments, speed, and regularity of updates, flexibility to scale up or down easily, less need for dedicated resources, greater ease of use, level of support and simpler pricing.
