This eliminates the need to invest in and maintain in-house servers, reducing costs. Find out about the benefits and main features of an ERP in the cloud!

Benefits and features of an ERP in the cloud

Regardless of where the software is implemented and who manages it, an ERP solution generally supports the same business processes. However, there are some differences between on-premise ERP and ERP in the cloud.
ERP in the cloud has become a system with a growing trend due to its benefits: 
  • Lower cost
A business management system in the cloud is provided on an “as a service” basis, so the company pays a subscription fee defined by the functional scope of the ERP, number of users, storage, and computing resources. In addition, companies eliminate the initial investment in servers and their maintenance.
  • Flexibility
Business management software in the cloud allows complete customization to meet the company's requirements fully. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central ERP is available anywhere and on any device, be it a browser or a mobile application.
  • Quick access to the solution
Implementing ERP in the cloud is faster, as there is no need to acquire any infrastructure and all the resources are available as soon as the license is obtained. 
  • Automatic updates and better performance
A business management system in the cloud offers companies optimized performance, adjusting automatically and providing additional resources whenever necessary, without needing additional migrations. In addition, the provider is responsible for updates, ensuring that the company always has access to the latest version of the software.
  • Security
IT security is increasingly complex, and companies must defend themselves against possible attacks. An ERP in the cloud, such as Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, can offer greater security, as there is greater investment in protecting it.
