During the decision process on whether or not to adopt cloud computing as a strategic resource, many companies still have doubts about the efficiency and availability of tools that can support them during the migration process. Thinking about it, we decided to start a series here on the blog about solutions that can be hosted in the cloud and that provide great benefits for different types of companies. We will start with Cloud ERP – Enterprise Resource Planning.

ERP is an information system that integrates all data and processes of an organization into a single system. Integration can be viewed from both a functional perspective (finance, accounting, human resources, manufacturing, marketing, sales, purchasing, etc.) and a systemic perspective (transaction processing systems, management information systems, decision support systems , etc).

ERP reduces sales cycle time

The introduction of intelligence through applications in the business allows to considerably reduce the time spent in relation to the sales cycle.

Applications can process all datasets about products, markets and sales areas and analyze them in real time, generating results that can boost the pace and efficiency of the sales process. The application allows you to work faster, in real time and transforming a lot of data into relevant information for companies. Learning to use and using it intelligently reduces the number of steps in a business process, helping throughout the existing sales cycle.

Data is another key factor in an ERP system. In a supply chain application, for example, data from an ERP solution can inform you about a shipment that wasn't possible before, and this can help drive better business decisions.

Cloud-based ERP systems

Cloud ERP or cloud-based ERP has the ability, for example, to run in a shorter time compared to an on-premise ERP solution.

Everyone is doing it, or at least thinking of moving to cloud-based ERP software.

According to the already proven results, many companies consider using cloud ERP as a more efficient and cost-effective option. The truth is, moving to cloud-based ERP software is a lot like preparing for an on-premises ERP implementation. The difference is that you won't have to scale and buy hardware and supporting infrastructure; otherwise, the steps for implementation are the same.

Most companies have seen a significant improvement in their processes after implementing cloud-based ERP software. However, a priority step before performing the migration is planning, as this makes it possible to obtain all the benefits of a cloud-based application.

The most important preparatory step is to map business processes through visual tools to identify where improvements are needed and where they can be implemented in the cloud system.

It is possible that your current business processes have been slowed down by the on-premises ERP system used so far. But with the use of cloud computing, the process becomes more flexible and allows for more advanced ways of doing things.
