SAP Cloud ERP Solutions

As a startup, you wanted things to be easy. You bought an out-of-the-box small business accounting solution like QuickBooks, Peachtree, or Sage 50 to handle the basics.

But as your business expands geographically, adds warehouse space, creates new entities, and offers more products and services, the basics become—well, too basic.

Here are some signs you’ve hit a wall with your entry-level software:

  • You have nightmares about spreadsheets
  • There’s a forest’s worth of paper in the office
  • Your inventory management strategy is “I think it’s over there”
  • Your data lives in several systems that don’t ‘play nice’
  • Another customer received another wrong order
  • Remote access is a pipe dream
  • You wish you had more hours in the day
  • The one person who knew how to run reports just left the company
  • Those reports were meaningless anyway

If even one issue hits home, it’s time to look closely at cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions.

The Nuts and Bolts of ERP

ERP solutions bring every aspect of your business—including accounting and finance, customer relationship management (CRM), procurement, inventory, reporting, eCommerce, supply chain, and projects—together on one powerful, easy-to-use platform.

ERP solutions empower you to share information across business departments and with your customers and vendors. From warehouse workers to the executive team, an ERP solution provides complete visibility into your operations by centralizing your databases into a single location. Real-time information is a click away, so you can make fast, confident decisions.

Why Cloud ERP Is a Game-Changer

Cloud ERP solutions reduce costs, save time, keep data secure, and digitally transform growing businesses into flexible, resilient enterprises that thrive in changing market conditions.

In the past, businesses that outgrew their entry-level software faced a dilemma. Upgrading systems required investing in servers and databases, hiring more IT staff, and committing to years of operational and management services.

Today, graduating to a cloud ERP solution is fast, easy, and affordable. All you need is an internet connection and a web browser. You can leave the hard stuff to the experts—cloud providers ensure everything works correctly and that the latest updates happen in the background without disrupting operations. And cloud providers’ security protections rival the world’s largest enterprise data centers.
