The greatest barrier to the adoption of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software in small and medium sized businesses has been the cost of infrastructure. Many small businesses simply do not have the funds or technical expertise to build their own data centres or to implement the infrastructures necessary to house a full-scale ERP system.
Enter cloud based ERP. While traditional, on premise, ERPs require extensive setup, maintenance, and monitoring which can quickly drain the IT budget, a cloud based solution offers small to medium sized businesses a range of cost saving benefits. Here are three ways a cloud ERP system can save you money.
With a cloud based ERP solution your business no longer needs to shoulder the costs or responsibility of maintaining a data centre. The costs of building, maintaining and securing your on-premise data centre can add up significantly for a small or medium sized business. With a cloud based ERP solution your IT team no longer needs to spend hours working on outdated systems which is another saving on both cost and time.
Acumatica is a software technology provider, offering a cloud and browser-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution for small to medium sized businesses (SMB’s). Acumatica’s ERP system is built on its own platform. The software can be deployed on premise, hosted in a data centre or run on a cloud-computing platform and can be licensed or purchased.
Updates happen automatically
One of the greatest setbacks attached to on-premise ERP solutions is having to fork out money for the latest updates and bug fixes. The reality is that without these updates and bug fixes for your software your business will not be able to operate. With cloud based solutions, updates are included in your monthly costs which means no nasty surprises when its updating time.
Eliminates upfront costs
Investing in and setting up a traditional ERP system for your business can take a chunk out of your budget and restrict you from investing in other areas of your business. With a cloud based ERP solution the low initial set up costs means that your company can benefit from the essential features of the system whilst leaving you with enough room to pour cash into other areas that may require some additional funds.
