For enterprises and large-scale businesses, the ERP solution is certainly not a new term anymore. Businesses such as super or hypermarkets, retail, wholesale or manufacturing units who have multiple branches at different locations surely want all their operations to be able to run swift and smooth without any difficulties. One of the better ways to efficiently manage all business activities effectively is to implement a cloud-based ERP solution. It has the same functionalities as on-premise ERP, the cloud-based ERP solution has its own advantages for your business operations.
ERP system can not only integrate all departments within the organization, such as HR, Sales, Marketing, Operations, and others; but also serve to simplify all activities in various aspects of the company. There are two ERP solution models on the market, on-premise (conventional) and cloud-based ERP (traditional). Even though both have similar functions and goals, today a lot of companies are migrating from on-premise to the cloud-based ERP.
Here are five advantages of implementing a cloud-based ERP solution for your business:
- Ease implementation
Unlike an on-premise ERP solution that takes months for implementation, the implementation of a cloud-based ERP tends to be much convenient, easier and faster. A cloud-based ERP solution can be accessed on a desktop or mobile through the website as long as your system is connected to the internet. This makes it easy for anyone with access rights to use it through various browsers available.
- Lower capital costs
Cloud-based ERP solution requires lower capital costs than that of an on-premise ERP. Because here you do not need to buy any hardware in order to support your ERP system. Furthermore, you do not have to pay additional fees related to maintenance and upgrades to your ERP vendor. The maintenance process of an on-premise ERP system usually takes a long time and is expensive. On a cloud-based ERP solution, upgrades can be done by your vendor through a back-end system and you can reduce the additional operational costs you’d have to spend for managing your server.
- Reduced dependency on IT resources
On a cloud-based ERP solution, companies only need fewer IT resources, because they do not need to manage or configure their ERP servers anymore. Your IT resources can now focus on other complex operational tasks that can help bring benefits to your business, rather than on these technical issues. This of course also has a positive impact on operational cost savings in their company.
- Scalable per your business needs
A cloud-based ERP can be easily altered as the business scales. You can upgrade (adding more subscriptions) or downgrade (reducing the subscription) your solution in order to meet the changing demands of your business needs. This is one of the tempting benefits for SMBs, as you can use the functionality to alter subscription as the business operations perform.
- Accessibility to real-time, real data
This is a better solution for companies that have multiple branches across countries or regions. You can monitor all of your business operations anytime, from anywhere via a smartphone. All of your business divisions can connect to each other even though their locations are far apart.
Finally, you can free yourself from the complexities and costs of managing hardware or maintaining software. You can access your ERP anytime, from anywhere, pay as you go, and gauge resources up
