Taking ERP to the Cloud
Businesses looking for a competitive edge can leverage Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems to improve speed and accessibility without the responsibility of on-site solutions. If you haven’t yet considered the cloud as an overall strategy, you may be missing out on significant advantages.
Cloud ERP comes with a number of advantages over legacy on-premise solutions. Here is an overview of why cloud ERP could be the right solution for your business.
Lower Initial Investment
Cloud ERP solutions are less expensive when compared with conventional on-premise systems. With on-premise ERP, your organization has to part with a sizable capital upfront for purchasing and maintaining infrastructure like servers and data centers. Apart from this, there is the recurrent cost of maintaining, configuring and deploying the software.
With Cloud ERP, your organization will not have to deal with the complexities of installing or integrating the system. The burden and cost of deploying, maintaining, and upgrading the ERP is left to the solution provider. Small and mid-sized businesses in Dallas/ Fort Worth area with limited space and budgets will find this ERP attribute particularly attractive to them.

- Higher NPS* (net provider score) scores
- Lower risk of technology debt accrual
NPS stands for Net Promoter Score which is a metric used in customer experience programs. NPS measures the loyalty of customers to a company. NPS scores are measured with a single-question survey and reported with a number from the range -100 to +100, a higher score is desirable.
Scales with Your Business
Cloud ERP provides cost savings through resource scalability. With the Cloud, you only need to purchase the resources that your business needs over a particular time. Therefore, you get better value for your money and can realize your return on investment (ROI) faster.
Moreover, cloud-based ERP solutions help your organization to be more efficient. Employees are freed to focus on the core tasks of your organization while mundane tasks are left to be handled by the ERP solution.
The flexibility and accessibility of the cloud have enabled organizations to grow and expand without the ball and chain of an on-site system.
