One of the beauties of the SaaS model is that the software is kept up to date with the latest features, functions and best practices. Cloud ERP providers roll out updates on a regular basis (as often as monthly, in Oracle’s case).
This means that the latest technologies become available to subscribers on a regular basis. However, not all cloud software systems are made the same and finding the right one can be difficult.
Here are three key factors to keep in mind as you choose your system:
Ongoing support – Your cloud ERP solution provider should provide ongoing support, regardless of where you are in the integration process. You should always feel comfortable reaching out to your provider.
Supply chain visibility – You should get a complete set of inventory management, manufacturing, and purchasing features to help streamline your supply chain. On top of this, you should also have a real-time view of key suppliers, inventory and ordering indicators.
Quote-to-quote process – Your platform’s order and billing management module should integrate with your sales, finance, and fulfilment operations to eliminate any bottlenecks. This streamlines the entire order and sales process, meaning you can get more done in less time.
