Cloud-based ERP: What You Need to Know in 9 Questions

Cloud-based ERP: What You Need to Know in 9 Questions

cloud_based_erp_SWK_2Looking to upgrade your ERP software? So what about cloud-based ERP software?

Have you read the four types of cloud-based ERPs or about the cost savings that come from cloud computing? There are a lot of questions to ask!

This article may help you determine if a cloud ERP solution is for you.

Is cloud “all or nothing”?

In today's world, most companies are already leveraging the power of cloud-based systems by hosting some portion of their business in the cloud. Some of the typical systems to have hosted are:

  • Phones
  • Email
  • Sales-force automation
  • CRM system
  • HR management system
  • … the list could go on

Here at SWK, we were already taking advantage of the cloud before we made the choice this year to migrate our ERP to the cloud as well.

How to determine if cloud ERP is right for you:

You already know that cloud-based ERPs (also known as Software-as-a-Service or “SaaS”) are convenient to use anytime, anywhere, and on any device, but here is a piece of advice that most resellers are hiding from you:

“Only you can decide if the cloud is right for your business.”

Every company should weigh the pros and cons for their business needs and requirements -- and seriously, you are the only one who knows those things about your business.

To make the best decision, you should truly understand what the cloud is and how to harness the powers of the cloud. Make your educated decision with a handy guide. SWK Technologies has provided a list of the nine questions you need to ask about cloud-based ERP. Seven of these questions are smart to ask, no matter what kind of ERP you’re considering, and two of them are specifically geared toward the cloud.

We hope that after you read this white paper, “9 Questions to Ask About SaaS,” you’ll feel better informed about what the cloud can and cannot offer you – and that you’ll feel confident in the choice you make to support your business.

What are you waiting for? Download the white paper now. More information can only help.
