ERP helps to fa­cil­i­tate the flow of crit­i­cal in­for­ma­tion be­tween dif­fer­ent de­part­ments. This is mainly achieved by in­te­grat­ing sys­tems to create one ef­fec­tive plat­form, which also helps to re­duce the chances of data go­ing miss­ing be­tween dif­fer­ent de­part­ments

In to­day’s evolv­ing dig­i­tal world, cloud has be­come an in­trin­sic part of day-to-day busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties. In fact, you may be hard-pressed to find a busi­ness that does not use at least one cloud-based so­lu­tion. One of the main rea­sons for this is be­cause of the vast as­sort­ment of cloud sys­tems read­ily avail­able, in­clud­ing the cloud-based ERP sys­tem. This sys­tem is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly more pop­u­lar within the busi­ness mar­ket. If you’re in­ter­ested in in­te­grat­ing this sys­tem into your busi­ness, read on to learn more about the dif­fer­ent ben­e­fits it can of­fer.

What is Cloud-based ERP?

En­ter­prise Re­source Plan­ning (or ERP for short) is a type of man­age­ment soft­ware. This is typ­i­cally of­fered as a bun­dle of dif­fer­ent ap­pli­ca­tions, which aims to help busi­nesses au­to­mate their data col­lec­tion, stor­age, man­age­ment and in­ter­pre­ta­tion.

By switch­ing to this au­to­mated sys­tem, many busi­ness own­ers can get a fan­tas­tic real-time view of all the dif­fer­ent pro­cesses, re­sources and com­mit­ments go­ing on in their busi­ness.

ERP also helps to fa­cil­i­tate the flow of crit­i­cal in­for­ma­tion be­tween dif­fer­ent de­part­ments. This is mainly achieved by in­te­grat­ing sys­tems to create one ef­fec­tive plat­form, which also helps to re­duce the chances of data go­ing miss­ing be­tween dif­fer­ent de­part­ments.

Cloud- based ERP so­lu­tions are ba­si­cally a num­ber of ERP apps that are avail­able to users via an in­ter­net con­nec­tion. Gen­er­ally, this type of soft­ware does not need to be in­stalled on com­put­ers and is of­fered as a fla­trate fee.

Busi­nesses that have in­vested in cloud-based ERP so­lu­tions have ex­pe­ri­enced sev­eral ben­e­fits. We’ll take a look at some of the most com­mon ben­e­fits below.

In­creased ERP Per­for­mance

When it comes to im­ple­ment­ing an in­house ERP so­lu­tion, this of­ten re­quires a size­able chunk of com­puter power, which some smaller busi­nesses will not pos­sess. Cloud-based so­lu­tions only re­quire a steady con­nec­tion to the in­ter­net, which nearly all mod­ern busi­nesses al­ready have.

As the re­sources to host the ERP so­lu­tion are taken care of by the provider, the sys­tem should per­form bet­ter, re­gard­less of the sys­tem you are us­ing.

En­hanced Ac­cess to In­for­ma­tion

Com­pa­nies with­out an ERP will likely strug­gle when it comes to sort­ing through their streams of data and in­for­ma­tion to find what they need when they need it. ERPs eas­ily sort through your data and col­late rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion in an ef­fec­tive and co­he­sive man­ner.

As cloud-based ERP so­lu­tions are ac­ces­si­ble any­where, at any time, (pro­vided you have an in­ter­net con­nec­tion) this will quickly im­prove busi­ness op­er­a­tions and en­able you to ac­cess crit­i­cal in­for­ma­tion out­side of the of­fice.

In­creased Se­cu­rity

When it comes to in­ter­nal mat­ters, your data se­cu­rity is en­sured be­cause of how you have to ac­cess an ERP sys­tem. In most cases, you will be re­quired to ac­cess your ERP sys­tem through an ac­count.

Each user will typ­i­cally have their own ac­count and a cen­tral ad­min panel con­trols who has ac­cess to what in­for­ma­tion. Gen­er­ally, cloud-based ERP so­lu­tions of­fer en­hanced se­cu­rity, along­side 24/7 sup­port. This means if an is­sue does oc­cur, it can usu­ally be solved quickly.
