Manufacturers can benefit from moving their ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solution from on-premise to the Cloud. There are several ways that Cloud-based ERP will provide increased freedom, flexibility, and efficiency for manufacturing businesses while allowing them to focus their efforts on their customers and on achieving their business goals.
Cloud ERP reduces complexity
In today’s competitive market, manufacturing companies need to be agile enough to meet the changing needs of demanding consumers and remain competitive. ERP Cloud solutions are far more adaptable than are on-premise ERP solutions. New software applications, data storage, and computing power can be delivered immediately through the Cloud as opposed to having to wait and disrupt your business with on-premise updates, upgrades, and service calls. Also, implementation of Cloud ERP is much easier than that of on-premise solutions, decreasing the time it takes to get up and running.
Cloud ERP helps control costs
Because Cloud ERP is a type of SaaS (software as a service), businesses pay a subscription fee for the resources they use, rather than making a large upfront investment in on-premise servers. The fees are spread evenly across a designated term, making payment more manageable, predictable, and efficient. Cloud ERP also eliminates the need for on-premise installation, operation, and maintenance expenses. Manufacturers avoid additional costs by paying for only what they need.
Cloud ERP scales with your business
With Cloud ERP, you control which applications your organization acquires and when, and the software will grow with your business. Scalability is especially beneficial for complex and high-growth industries such as manufacturing. In a constantly changing market, manufacturers can add or remove services as business capacity and resource needs change.
Cloud ERP breaks down data silos
On-premise solutions require that your data be stored privately in a data center where it is accessed by your IT team. This model is inefficient because data reporting flows through a single on-premise channel. In contrast, Cloud ERP gives all stakeholders, with permissions, access to information via the internet, increasing cross-functional productivity, transparency, and accountability.
Cloud ERP gives you anytime, anyplace access
Cloud ERP offers much more flexibility than does on-premise ERP. Individuals, departments, and branches can share information on demand and in real time. And in today’s mobile society, they also can view data on the go and complete their work at any location and via any device. Business is not interrupted by onsite software upgrades. With Cloud ERP, updates and upgrades are applied continuously behind the scenes. Security guarantees and backup and disaster recovery plans reduce interruptions to your business.
Cloud ERP takes care of IT for youManufacturing organizations that use Cloud ERP can focus on their business-critical work, trusting their Cloud provider to take care of ongoing support and upgrades. IT investment is limited, reducing maintenance and internal resource costs. A cloud solution is the most efficient use of overhead because it frees in-house capabilities to drive revenue.
