When looking over ERP’s there’s one major question to answer early on. Do I take my business into the cloud? There are benefits to the cloud and server-based solutions, but for any company that is thinking of the future, the cloud is the way to go.
Implementation– Cloud systems can be implemented much more quickly than on-site ERP systems. Once the environment is established a cloud platform can be configured for the customer within 24 hours. For this reason, a system such as Rev Parts Management Software (which already has its online environment created) is an ideal choice for those who are looking to utilize a new system immediately.
Security– If you are concerned about the security of you and your customer’s information a cloud system is a perfect option to alleviate concerns. True cloud systems are housed in the same online environments as government agencies and e-commerce giants like Amazon. ERP’s run the risk of losing reputation and customers, and so are forced to develop strong security protocols specifically for that reason. So their developers are particularly adamant about fending off any kind of threat and are constantly evolving to offer the latest in technological safety.
Costs- Initially setting up a cloud ERP is generally less expensive than on-site options. There are no hardware fees that come with personal or offsite servers, and no new terminals required to link to the new system. Subscription costs are a lot easier to swallow for the folks footing the bill, and lowering operating costs mean cloud solutions save more in the long run. Adding in benefits provided by those
Adaptability- Cloud-based platforms have a flexibility that is incomparable to on-premise solutions. The ability to build integrations into just about every existing software, as well as the capability to merge with future ones. More than just being adaptable, the software must also be easy enough for team members to make the switch between programs without incurring too much training time or difficulty.
Getting your company on a true cloud platform is an investment in the future of your business. Access to accurate information makes users capable of making informed decisions more quickly. In regards to inventory, part movement can be tracked at every step, even when you’re on the go. Sales numbers of parts have more accurate results and trends can be identified through forecasting.
