Cloud ERP Software Selection: 6 Reasons Why Customers Choose SAP Business One Cloud

With cloud ERP software, specifically SAP Business One Cloud, you can have all the depth and flexibility of SAP with the advantages of outsourcing your IT to a cloud provider.

1. Fast Onboarding:

With cloud deployment, you can be up and running on SAP Business One Cloud in as little as two weeks. An experienced SAP partner who provides a preconfigured solution ready to import your existing data and begin working is an ideal solution.

2. Low Upfront Cost:

SAP Business One Cloud includes all the software, infrastructure and technical support to begin working. If your servers are in need of being replaced, now is a good time to consider moving to cloud accounting software. Let the experts in IT handle all of the updates, adding users, backups and maintaining equipment.

If you are just starting up, using the cloud is a great way to control your initial costs for equipment and personnel. Using an experienced SAP Business One Cloud hosting provider allows you to focus on your business while they take care of your IT.
