7. Mobility and anytime, anywhere erp
In on-premise ERP, you often needed a specialized software tool to connect the system with mobile devices. You can do without that added complication in the cloud. When you give your users access to ERP capabilities and information in the cloud, they can reach them from almost any device that is equipped with a browser – a standard desktop or laptop computer, a tablet, a smartphone, or another mobile device. Many cloud-based ERP systems come with their own native mobile apps, making remote access even easier. Employees can be productive whenever they wish to be, and they can also engage with their colleagues, customers, and trading partners at any time, anywhere. They can run your business in the same efficient way they run their own lives, using apps and smart mobile devices. That eliminates some frustrations people might experience in the workplace and encourages greater creativity and sustained collaboration.
As some companies find that the cloud enables dramatic increases in productivity, they also can save costs on dedicated office spaces, conference rooms, and associated networking hardware. In many organizations, the cloud and enterprise mobility have reduced facilities and infrastructure requirements while boosting employees’ motivation and satisfaction with their work.
8. You can draw on mature ecosystem resources
Similar to on-premise ERP, cloud-based ERP solutions may meet most of your business requirements without any additions or customizations, but functionality gaps may remain. Partners and ISVs supporting the leading cloud ERP solutions are creating and evolving their own products to help you close these gaps, following the standards for interoperability established by the cloud ERP leaders. However, because the most advanced cloud ERP environments support robust integrations with cloud as well as on-premise software, you have a greater choice of solutions or can continue to rely on preferred software products you already own.
9. Innovation is at home and affordable in the cloud
As more and more companies move their computing to the cloud, the breadth, depth, and speed of innovation in the cloud far surpasses on-premise technology. Today’s state-of-the-art cloud ERP solutions in terms of functionality, flexibility, performance, scalability, reliability, and security are the best ERP ever. The cloud ERP leaders are committed to advancing their solutions to enable companies’ digital transformations and support an increasing range of industry- and business-specific requirements. In the cloud, this ongoing innovation becomes available through your subscription. In on-premise ERP, its equivalent would likely require sizeable upfront expenses and cast a shadow in form of IT administrative challenges and process complexities.
