Why flexible cloud ERP pricing and licensing is important ?
Business growth can be attributed to many things: smart decisions, motivating leaders, customer satisfaction, team effort, and modern technology.
Modern technology, in particular can be a game-changer. The adoption of a cloud ERP solution, can be the backbone of your business digital transformation. With the onset of 5G network deployment and the proliferation of usage of smart phones and gadgets, it is inevitable that deployment of your ERP on the cloud is unavoidable and will come sooner than one can expect. Deciding to implement cloud ERP is becoming a necessity for succeeding in today’s marketplace.
As you evaluate your cloud ERP options, you should ask yourself some important cost-related questions:
- Do I want to buy ERP licensing outright (CAPEX) or pay a monthly subscription (OPEX)?
- How does the industry I’m in (e.g. a construction, manufacturing or distribution company) may need a totally integrated and always online system?
- How much will it cost to integrate with third-party software products?
- Does the ERP solution offer deployment options such as on-premise or cloud-based version and which one do I want/need if it does?
- Is there a consumption-based cloud pricing option?
Per user pricing limits growth, but if you’re charged for resource usage, then you can expect to provide all (not some) employees with real-time data. They can use this information to do their work quickly and accurately and to make good business decisions. Additionally, having the ability to grow or shrink resource levels and data storage when you need is a huge cost-saving.
Choose your cloud ERP solution wisely.
The cloud ERP vendor(s) you evaluate should have answers for you, and these answers should come in the form of options for your unique business requirements.
Deployment options, implementation assistance, customization capabilities (with low-code or no-code capabilities), an adaptable platform (offering open APIs for seamless integrations), and a system that provides specialized industry editions, be it Construction, Manufacturing, Distribution or even eCommerce; these are the features and functionality you should be looking for. And, most importantly, your cloud ERP solution you choose must provide flexible cloud ERP pricing and cloud ERP licensing.
Choosing wisely results in increased efficiency, growth, and profitability and of course lower your cost of investment with the best return-on-investment.
