3 Myths About Cloud ERP Software Debunked!


179019172Unfortunately, there are several myths floating around the Internet about cloud-based tools, especially cloud ERP. The problem is that the owners of small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) miss out on 
the amazing benefits of these tools because they unnecessarily fear untruths.

It’s time to dispel these myths! Here are three of the most common misunderstood facts about cloud ERP software, and why it makes no sense to continue relying on outdated, legacy systems.

Ask These 5 Questions Before Making Any Cloud ERP Customizations

476968537In the early 1900s, Henry Ford sponsored a way to mass-produce cars using an assembly line. For the first time in the history of the world, regular people could afford their own set of wheels.

Likewise, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) must take advantage of cost-saving techniques available today. If something can be made or delivered without costly customizations, it’s going to be cheaper to buy.

The same idea applies to cloud ERP systems. If SMBs are able to successfully use these tools without paying a vendor to customize the offering — or, completely rebuild the system — they’re going to save lots of money. Embracing an out-of-the-box solution is absolutely ideal from a cost standpoint.


This is why SMBs must find a vendor offering an affordable cloud ERP system that has built-in workflows, integrates with your current systems, performs all of the necessary functions and moves the business forward. Here are five questions to ask before going forward with any ERP customizations.

How Distribution Software Solves These 4 Common Fulfillment Problems

common fulfillment problemsFrom sales and invoicing to warehouse management and inventory tracking, distribution is a very complicated endeavor. As a wholesale distribution company, you’re well aware of the challenges associated with fulfillment – you encounter them on a daily basis. Find out how distribution software solves these common problems and helps your business run smoothly.

1. Your customer places an order, but you can’t fulfill it.

When your customer places an order – no matter the channel – you’re tentatively promising that you’re able to fill it. But your inventory is inaccurate or your warehouse is mismanaged, so you’re unable to process and fulfill orders as they come in. Your customers, who assume that your product availability is accurate when they place the order, are upset. You’ve lost their trust and all but eliminated the possibility that they’ll return in the future.

How does distribution software help?

Distribution software utilizes data-capture technology to accurately track every item in your inventory. This warehouse management system is linked to barcode scanners, laptops, smartphones and mobile devices, so every item that comes in and out of your warehouse is tracked. Your overall business management system is integrated, so all the tracking data that’s captured is immediately synced to the ERP software. This grants you real-time inventory control and visibility into your omnichannel transactions.
