Your ERP solution – The advantages of Cloud Hosting vs On-premise
June 30, 2014Posted by on
As time and technology changes, so does your need to keep up and have your business operate efficiently. A good example of technology changes are the benefits you gain by moving your ERP solution to the cloud.
If your company has employees that work remotely or have sales people in the field, moving your solution to the cloud can help reduce IT costs that are associated with both of those scenarios. When your employees access your ERP solution remotely, you need to have 2 servers up and running to accommodate them. One server provides the housing for your ERP solution and the other server allows for your employees to access remotely. You never want to allow employees to access your ERP solution directly. VPN connections which employees use to access the solution are notoriously cumbersome and slow. By moving your solution to the cloud you can eliminate the need for 2 servers as well as the slow VPN connection. With hosted solutions your employees can access your solution from anywhere in the world as long as they have access an internet connection.
Another advantage that hosted solutions provide is the ability for sales people in the field to place orders via their smart phone, laptop or tablet device. This allows your sales people to confirm orders while still on site with the customers. It also allows your sales people to see available inventory, suggest substitute items or allow for the addition of items that coincide with the customers purchase. By providing ready access to your inventory data you provide your sales team with the ability to deliver great customer service.
