Just a few years ago, the Local Management Software Model meant a true revolution in the application of mobile technology to the business environment. It meant the possibility of automating processes through the use of cutting-edge applications, greatly contributing to improve the profitability of organizations.
With the emergence of ERP in the cloud, the benefits are now rising to unprecedented levels. Also known as SaaS or Software as a Service system, it represents a step into the future. However, there are companies that are still debating the feasibility between the On-Premise model and the Cloud model, and are still wondering: What are the benefits and advantages of ERP in the Cloud? In this post we bring you the answer!
What is the ERP Cloud?
Let’s start by giving you the precise information about the definition and operation of Business Management Software in the cloud. It is a Technological Suite for Business Management whose software and data are housed in a service that is external to the company itself. This means that unlike traditional ERP, which can only be accessed through local computers, with the Cloud ERP service, hosted data and resources can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection. In this way, a set of benefits is conferred in favour of business management from an innovative, profitable, functional and safe perspective.
What are the benefits of an ERP Cloud?
It is no coincidence that a large number of companies have decided to migrate to the advantages of a Management Model through the Cloud, especially the one offered by Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, which is considered the most complete Cloud Business Solution.
Let's see the main advantages of the SaaS system:
Access and availability according to the new times
Companies that decide to invest in their digital transformation, do so to free themselves from the limitations of time and space in Business Management, they do so because they seek to promote a Management Model according to the new times. One of the advantages of ERP Cloud is that it allows access to data and process management from anywhere in the world and at any time of the day.
Added to the cutting-edge functionality is an advanced security system to protect data before any digital eventuality. This is achieved thanks to Azure, Microsoft’s famous cloud service platform. Azure is recognized worldwide for meeting the highest cybersecurity standards.
This software has been conceived to reduce the high costs of a locally installed ERP. Due to the fact that an external server is used in the Cloud system and the installation of hardware in the company is not required for its operation, this favours a smart investment, which includes more benefits at lower cost. In addition, it is not necessary to pay for system maintenance and support costs of the hardware, since this is done by the service provider.
One of the factors that worries companies that use traditional ERP the most, is the need to make extra payments on top of those already required to install the hardware when a new update arises or it is necessary to integrate a new tool. This does not happen withERP Cloud, since generally it is enough to enable and integrate the application. Likewise, the updates are offered directly by the provider and for their installation, it is not necessary to buy each update separately.
