16 Nov Just one more great reason to go with the ERP cloud option
As a company considers adopting an ERP cloud solution the usual selling point is upfront and long-term saving potential compared to an on-premise system. But there is a long list benefits that make cloud computing the best option for many enterprises.
Softwarethinktank.com lists the top ten things a business should consider about hosted ERP. As can be expected, the cost-saving potential that the cloud brings by reducing IT staff costs and the investment cost of on-premise solutions made the list.
A less talked about but very important benefit of SaaS ERP listed in the top ten is break-and-fix model of on-premise systems versus the end-to-end support model in the cloud. Eventually an on-premise system is going to fail in one way or another. Then the users are either left waiting for a technician to be called or they attempt to fix the problem themselves. This is a common shortcoming of on-premise systems. Cloud providers often have monitoring systems that keep business processes running smoothly, and round-the-clock tech help should anything go wrong.
