What is Cloud ERP?

Before we discuss cloud ERP, let’s first consider the question – what is the cloud? We’re obviously not talking about the fluffy white things in the sky.

The cloud is a tech-term referring to services or software that operate via the internet, instead of locally on a computer.

If you use a mobile device or computer at home, you may already be familiar with some everyday cloud-based services such as Netflix, Gmail, Apple iCloud, Microsoft OneDrive and Spotify.

Cloud-Based ERP

Cloud ERP is a type of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system that is hosted on a vendor’s cloud platform, as opposed to an on-premise network.

Like any ERP system, cloud-based ERP software helps organisations to manage crucial business processes and resources. The difference to on-site ERP solutions is that it stores information in the cloud. So you and your employees can access the software using any device, from any location, at any time. All you need is an internet connection.

Benefits of Online ERP Systems

With a cloud ERP solution, you can easily access real-time insights for the latest information on your business operations.  Cloud-based systems are also typically cheaper to implement and maintain than an on-premise alternative.

Key advantages of cloud-based ERP:

  • Reduced maintenance and energy costs
  • Less time spent on upgrades and backups
  • Options for creating additional users quickly and easily
  • See what’s happening in every area of your business
  • Access to the latest cloud tools and technology
  • Collaborate with different teams in different locations
  • Make better decisions using real-time data
