01 Feb Why should I implement my ERP on the cloud?
One of the trends which is becoming more popular in the market of ERPs is the use of cloud based servers. As with all innovative processes, it has its advantages, its disadvantages and its myths.
The implementation process of an ERP on the cloud is due, above all, to the achievement of several objectives:
1. Reduction of costs: payment is made per use or under a subscription model, so fixed costs become variable and the initial investment is reduced.
2. Reduction in hardware costs: it is no longer necessary to invest in hardware to install and save our ERP data.
3. Reduction in staffing costs for the maintenance of the storage processes in the ERP system data base. In addition, the updates are carried out much more simply without causing problems in the day to day working of the company.
On a secondary level, and no less important, an ERP on the cloud improves and facilitates interaction between users within the same company from different geographical locations. This way we can improve the flow of decision making and the reception of internal information will be more accessible.
Before making the decision to transfer to the cloud, you should bear the following points in mind. Not forgetting that the cloud will give you much more flexibility in the changes that may arise in your company, so the ERP will constantly adapt to the expansion of your business.
Having analysed all of these benefits, the only thing to consider is whether the functionality required by your business for day to day work adapts to this transformation. Are you ready to take the step?
