There are a number of reasons to explain why manufacturing and distribution companies are increasingly migrating from traditional on-premises ERP applications to Public Cloud ERP applications. Once midsized enterprises discover the benefits of its simplicity, speed, flexibility and cost-effectiveness, this options becomes a viable one.
Superior security, performance and scalability
Not every cloud service can claim to offer the secure, robust and capable strengths of Sage Business Cloud. The system is built on the industry-leading Amazon Web Service (AWS) cloud infrastructure, a platform that has become renowned worldwide for dependability, scalability and security. It offers the highest number of SSL/TLS certificates and adheres strictly to guidelines and regional privacy laws.
AWS asserts that cloud security is its highest priority, and clients benefit from data centre and network architecture built to accommodate the requirements of the most security-sensitive organisations.
Lower total cost of ownership
The ability to drive cost efficiency is an unequivocal benefit of Cloud ERP, and this is achieved in several areas. For starters, Cloud ERP has minimal IT requirements – not only for hardware, but also personnel – so staff can focus their efforts on other areas of the business.
Speed is a significant factor, and because Cloud ERP implementations are usually completed much faster than on-premises implementations, return on investment is achieved much sooner.
With Sage, your Enterprise Management solution is provisioned on a pay-as-you-go model to keep upfront costs to a minimum and to avoid affecting a company’s cash flow. And while on-premises applications usually cannot be budgeted as operational expenses, this is possible with Cloud ERP.
Simplicity with Cloud ERP is assured in more ways than one, including budgeting and billing. Cloud ERP can dramatically reduce the number of vendors a business needs to engage with. By consolidating business management functionality, the disconnected applications that a business depends on can be replaced by a single comprehensive solution and a single monthly payment.
A better user experience
Platforms built without end users in mind are a problem. A platform that is difficult to use will slow down business processes and discourage staff from using it, nullifying many of the benefits of implementation. Sage’s Enterprise Management platforms prioritises usability with an intuitive interface design that requires significantly less training, enabling your staff complement to proceed with confidence and efficiency.
Sage’s Enterprise Management offers a number of deployment options so companies are not locked down. The public cloud environment does not suit every business, yet many service providers offer nothing else. Sage Enterprise Management gives you the choice of a private cloud, public cloud (depending on the region), an on-premises solution or a hybrid solution. Whether you choose an on-premises solution or a private cloud, the same functionality will be available to you.
As a complete end-to-end business management solution, once successfully implemented, Sage’s Enterprise Management quickly becomes the heart of a business’s functions.
Successful ERP system implementation is essential, which is why SynergERP first takes the time to learn about your business to find the optimum method of meeting your business needs. Finally, the results will speak for themselves.
