The primary reason why companies both big and small are taking advantage of the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) ERP delivery model is that the world is moving towards a web-based business model, because it offers several advantages over the traditional delivery models.
The web based ERP helps remove most of the location-dependent anxiety that gets in the way of communication, collaboration, and trading. Traditionally, software used to be delivered in boxes, and had to be installed in the same building as the people that used it. The web based ERP removes these constraints, enabling SaaS, which in turn becomes the basis for innovative ways of interacting and doing business.
SaaS is a software delivery model, by which enterprise applications are delivered over the Internet, and managed as a service by software vendors such as “Ramco On Demand”. They are priced on a subscription-service basis, often based on the number of users or seats.
The business benefits that SaaS ERP offers include the following:
- The SaaS ERP model shifts the burden of getting and keeping an enterprise application up and running from the customer to the vendor.
SaaS ERP can be implemented rapidly, and eliminates the infrastructure and enduring costs, which traditional applications require.
It permits users to leverage the software functionalities, without the burden of deploying and managing the software themselves.
SaaS ERP also eliminates the costs and complexities of deploying additional hardware and software, or dedicating additional staff resources to support the enterprise application on an ongoing basis.
The SaaS ERP model also enables every customer to benefit from the vendor's latest technological features, without the disruptions and costs associated with software updates and upgrades.
ERP Cloud essentially refers to having the applications installed centrally on cloud servers so that it is accessible from any place from an online connection irrespective of platforms used or browsers as a local desktop interface. It provides proven financial management and ERP that easily integrates with your broader sales and service processes.
Cloud ERP based software takes your business beyond traditional accounting software, streamlining back-office processes and equips you with the visibility you need to make better faster decisions.
