Key Benefits of Acumatica Cloud ERP

Cloud ERP has been proven to reduce costs in many ways because it:

    • Avoids upfront costs for computing infrastructure such as hardware and data servers
    • Reduces IT support services because IT is in the cloud
    • Eliminates paying upfront for application software licenses
  • Shrinks the cost of maintaining and supporting applications since the cloud vendor handles the updates and upgrades

The most important benefits of Cloud ERP go beyond hard-dollar cost-savings and include:

    • Pay only for the computing resources needed
    • Fixed monthly rates so companies can use their cash on other business initiatives
    • Take advantage of Cloud ERP applications faster since installation of hardware and software on servers or user devices is not required
    • The ability to adjust the amount of cloud service as a company’s computing or storage needs fluctuate
    • Confidence that the data has been backed up and there is a disaster recovery plan
    • Avoid cyber-attacks on the company’s server because the data in not stored locally, but in the cloud
  • Access the system from anywhere makes it easy for a company to expand geographically, since the Internet is everywhere and there is no need to implement hardware and software at remote locations

More importantly, it is designed to respond to and overcome the inflexibility of many existing ERP solutions. This is done by allowing choice of:

    • Functionality you wish to license with the Acumatica standard suites as well as optional add-on features
    • Computing power and data storage size needed now and when the business changes
    • Deployment options ranging from SaaS, hosted in a private cloud or on-premise, which can be switched as needs change
    • Licensing models of annual subscription or perpetual license
    • Data access to copy or move the data at any time, unlike many systems
  • Device mobility to easily switch between desired mobile device such as an Apple iPad, iPhone and Google Android or use a Windows, Mac or Linux desktop computer.

Time to Modernize your ERP System

Yet, if the system is not supporting the needs of the business, has become too expensive to maintain, limits your flexibility or inhibits customer service, a replacement is the only answer.
