Posted on: December 2, 2016 | By: Craig Thompson | QAD Business Process
While cloud ERP software has certainly gained popularity in the past few years, there are still many businesses out there that are still using an on premise ERP system. For those who are unfamiliar with cloud solutions like QAD Cloud ERP, the prospect of trusting this ambiguous “cloud” to store all of your trusted data can be quite unsettling. However, cloud ERP is much safer and more practical than you may originally anticipate. Below are 5 major reasons why to choose a cloud ERP system like QAD to help elevate your business.
Reason 1 – Flexibility
Because your ERP system is cloud based, this opens up the doors for much simpler customizations and expansions. With QAD, your business is consistently set up for growth and success so rather than feel limited by your ERP system (i.e. constricting users, not allowing you to access the functions you need, etc.) you have much more room to grow and expand without feeling held back by your ERP System.
Reason 2 – Security
Just because your software is held in the cloud and is accessible anywhere, that doesn’t mean that there is suddenly more room for error or security breaches. QAD’s cloud based ERP software allows you to constantly monitor your data without having to worry about ambiguous downloads or risk of theft. Everything is user and password protected so you can be confident that your information is secure.
Reason 3 – Predictive Analytics
While QAD can’t see into the future, it can do its best to predict future buying patterns, demand and other information based on past performance and analytics automatically without having to leave complicated equations and guess work up to your users. This allows for more accurate processing as well as more productive employees – what’s not to love!
Reason 4 – Simplified Reports and Workflows
QAD’s cloud based ERP software provides its users with customizable report templates and workflows to help simplify your daily processing. Based off of the industry you are in and your businesses individual needs, your ERP partner can help implement a solution that eliminates the need for complicated manual processing or time extensive reporting. Cloud ERP makes it easier than ever to eliminate error and increase productivity within any organization.
Reason 5 – Accessibility
Probably one of the most attractive features of Cloud based ERP software is its ability to be accessed anywhere and anytime you need it. In today’s mobile workforce, your business isn’t just confined to one singular location – employees travel, work on the go and get things done after hours; why limit them with a dated ERP system? Cloud based ERP like QAD completely restructures the traditional work structure and allows for a much more liberated work environment.
Cloud based ERP software is the up and coming trend that can completely alter your way of doing business – for the better. Don’t let your dated ERP system hold you back and limit growth, by switching to a cloud based ERP system you can liberate your employees and simplify daily tasks, all while knowing that your information is safe and secure.
