As more and more small to midsized enterprises (SMEs) explore the benefits of the cloud, many have already realized how fast, efficient, and cost effective cloud deployment is for business software. But beyond offering an alternative to traditional on premise solutions, the cloud offers a strategic platform for innovation and a new engagement model for your customers, vendors, and other stakeholders. Indeed, companies that embrace the cloud, have the advantage of deploying their enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution via reliable web service providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS); giving them added freedom to experiment with new technologies that were once beyond their reach. With a more flexible technical infrastructure offered by the cloud, companies gain the ability to adapt to the demands of today’s ever changing market much more quickly.
SMEs rely on implementation partners to help them navigate the cloud implementation process. Indeed, moving to the cloud with the right partner can save your company time, money, and effort. Here’s how:
1) Advanced Analytics
An experienced partner leverages the cloud’s analytic capabilities to provide you more insight into your business. Being able to access company data, dashboards, and reports from virtually anywhere gives you the information you need to provide additional value to your customers and remain agile in your market.
2) Efficient Deployments
An ERP partner has more experience deploying your chosen solution than any in house IT employee does. By leveraging the cloud, your partner can ensure quick and effective deployments and upgrades of your ERP solution without being on premise. This allows you to enjoy the benefits of your solution faster and with fewer roadblocks.
3) Reduced Time to Value
The cloud shortens the distance between the engineer and the end user. The right partner can help your company ensure that the employees who need access to your secure data can do so flexibly without being confined do their desk, allowing them to enter or access accurate information whenever they need to.
4) Streamlined Business Operations
A dedicated partner knows how to unlock the full potential of using the cloud. Your partner will work with you to leverage the benefits of the cloud and reduce the complexity of your business processes. With the help of your partner, you can integrate disparate systems and consolidate your data into a single, user friendly platform.
The cloud allows companies to enjoy the benefits of an ERP solution that is both cost effective and scalable. With the right partner to guide them, companies unlock the full benefits of the cloud more quickly and efficiently.
