What is Cloud Based ERP?

Understanding ERP Systems

Before we dive into cloud based ERP, let’s first understand what ERP systems are. ERP systems are software solutions that integrate and manage a company’s core business processes, such as accounting, inventory management, and human resources.

Traditionally, ERP systems were installed on-premise, meaning they were hosted on a company’s own servers and managed by their IT team. However, with the rise of cloud computing, ERP systems can now be hosted in the cloud, allowing for easier access and management.

What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services over the internet, including storage, servers, databases, software, and more. Instead of owning and maintaining physical servers, companies can access these services on-demand from a cloud provider.

Benefits of Cloud Based ERP

Increased Scalability

One of the main benefits of cloud-based ERP is its scalability. With traditional on-premise ERP systems, companies need to invest in expensive hardware and software to accommodate growth. This can be a significant barrier for small and medium-sized businesses.

With cloud based ERP, companies can easily scale up or down their resources as needed, without the need for additional hardware or software. This allows businesses to be more agile and adapt to changing market conditions quickly.

Cost Savings

Cloud-based ERP systems also offer cost savings compared to traditional on-premise systems. With on-premise systems, companies need to invest in hardware, software, and IT resources to manage and maintain the system. This can be a significant expense, especially for smaller businesses.

With cloud based ERP, companies only pay for the resources they use, making it a more cost-effective option. Additionally, cloud-based ERP systems are typically subscription-based, meaning companies can avoid large upfront costs and pay for the system on a monthly or yearly basis.

Improved Collaboration

Cloud-based ERP systems also offer improved collaboration between teams. With on-premise systems, employees may need to be physically present in the office to access the system. This can be a barrier for remote or distributed teams.

With cloud based ERP, employees can access the system from anywhere with an internet connection, allowing for more flexibility and collaboration. This is especially beneficial for companies with remote or international teams.

Automatic Updates and Maintenance

Another benefit of cloud based ERP is that updates and maintenance are handled by the cloud provider. With on-premise systems, companies need to manage updates and maintenance themselves, which can be time-consuming and costly.

With cloud based ERP, updates and maintenance are handled automatically by the provider, freeing up time and resources for companies to focus on their core business.

Disaster Recovery and Data Security

Data security is a top concern for businesses, and cloud based ERP systems offer enhanced security measures. With on-premise systems, companies are responsible for their own data security, which can be a daunting task.

With cloud based ERP, data is stored in secure data centres with advanced security measures in place. Additionally, cloud providers have disaster recovery plans in place, ensuring that data is backed up and can be recovered in the event of a disaster.

Cloud-based ERP systems offer a range of benefits, from increased scalability to improved collaboration and cost savings. With Signum Solutions’ expertise and tailored solutions, businesses can make the transition to a cloud based ERP system seamlessly and reap the benefits of improved efficiency and cost savings.
