A Cloud Enterprise resource planning (ERP) service for accounting and financial management has many benefits over an on-premises one.
Let’s talk about the difference between on-premises and cloud ERPs. With an on-premises ERP, your organization typically owns or leases both the server and computers on which users access the software. Meanwhile, with a cloud ERP, you lease the software from the server’s vendor and access the ERP through a web browser. Typically, a cloud-based ERP will be a Software as a Service (SaaS) product.
So, why does it matter whether you use Averiware cloud ERP or an on-premises one? The key differentiators are cost, integration, scalability, and customization options — all of which are improved when using a cloud-based solution. Here, we’ll see why you should integrate Averiware Accounting ERP software,
In an on-premises solution, your IT team needs to deploy, monitor, and manage your ERP. This requires time and effort, not to mention personnel who may not have the time for additional responsibility.
In our cloud-based solutions, on the other hand, you pay a subscription fee for the hardware and software costs, which your remote vendor will handle entirely. Plus, cloud-based ERPs are usually considered operating expenditures.
An on-premises ERP can be challenging to integrate into your existing legacy system. If you install it incorrectly, you can cause widespread issues. Our Cloud ERP teams, in turn, have more experience integrating ERPs into existing systems and can address issues that may arise more immediately.
As your number of users grows, you can scale your cloud solution more easily than an on-premises alternative can provide. Cloud solutions typically provide more flexibility as your number of clients and end-users grows. With an on-premises solution, you’ll likely need to buy more hardware to meet growing user demand.
The biggest worry that users have in choosing an ERP is customization. Although you can customize your on-premises ERP, you’ll also find that customizing slows down the integration process. In fact, on-premises ERPs can’t provide real-time data monitoring that cloud ERPs can. Additionally, a cloud ERP team will customize your solution, as well as monitor necessary updates and security patches.
Averiware combines sophisticated internal controls with a user-friendly interface. Not only can you access real-time data from anywhere in your company, but you can also simplify tracking for accounting, auditing, and continuous improvement processes. What’s more, you can always customize your cloud ERP service to fit your specific financial management goals and objectives.
