January can be a quiet, reflective month for a lot of companies after a hectic year end. This period of time offers an opportunity to take a good look at your current in-house operating systems and ask yourself if it is not, at long last, time to make a change?
This may seem like difficult decision, as most companies have invested a lot of energy and money into getting their systems to work for their unique operational requirements. However, your current system may not align with the evolution of your business. The original vendor who wrote your legacy software may not still be around, or maybe the company was acquired by another firm that no longer supports the product very well. And as technology rapidly develops, legacy products are sometimes left behind. If this sounds similar to your situation, now is a great time to migrate.
Change can seem like a big hassle…but that’s no longer the case. The new generation of cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions is making the system change process a lot easier to handle. ERP systems tie together a multitude of business processes and enable the flow of data between them. By collecting an organization’s shared transactional data from multiple sources, ERP systems eliminate data duplication and provide data visibility with a single source of truth. Today, ERP systems are critical for managing thousands of businesses of all sizes and in all industries. To these companies, ERP is as indispensable as the electricity that keeps the lights on.
Making the choice between on-premise ERP and cloud-based ERP can be hard. After all, the data that goes into your ERP system is vital to your business operations and entrusting it to someone outside of your business is a big step. But don’t worry, Cloud ERP systems are extremely secure. Cloud ERP vendors have very strict expectations for their security, and most actually offer better security services than most businesses could afford in-house. Vendors are held accountable by a multitude of customers who have entrusted their data to the Cloud, and that’s good news for your business because it means there won’t be any cut corners when it comes to keeping your data safe.
If there’s one big selling point for cloud ERP it’s that it’s extremely easy and affordable to implement. With cloud ERP there’s no need to buy all that expensive hardware to host your data like you would with an on-premise system. And with an easy implementation comes increased productivity. With cloud ERP systems, you have much less downtime. This means you can carry on business as usual, instead of putting your processes on hold while your new ERP system gets up and running.
Cloud ERP also allows for a greater degree of automation. Since the information is stored and accessible in the cloud, systems like online order management can always have the most current figures when it comes to things like inventory. This alleviates the need to copy and paste data from one source to another, as well as facilitating a more exceptional customer experience. Cloud ERP can easily scale up and down depending on your business needs so you don’t have to re-implement every time something changes.
