If you’re already choosing a new ERP system for your accounting needs, going cloud just makes sense. Industry experts agree that cloud software is the future.
While going cloud might not make sense for everyone, here are several situations where cloud is a great fit:
Remote work — If the bulk of your staff works remotely, a cloud solution is a great option. With a cloud ERP, you can access your system on the go, whether you’re using a laptop, tablet or smart phone.
Security concerns — While on-premise companies are at risk of security breaches or loss of data due to server crashes and natural disasters, cloud solutions are becoming increasingly secure.
Limited IT resources — Cloud solutions eliminate the need for a large IT staff. Since the system is run entirely in the cloud, it is maintained by the provider (in our case Microsoft).
Desire to stay current — If you want to avoid the hassle of upgrades, choose a cloud solution. Most cloud software is automatically updated so you’re always current and using the latest and greatest.
Minimal startup costs — Most Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions operate on a monthly payment plan. This eliminates any large upfront expense and gives you control over setting your monthly ERP budget.
