What If I’m Not Ready To Upgrade To Cloud ERP (Yet)?


Free Upgrade to Cloud ERP SubscriptionThere are a lot of benefits a true cloud ERP subscription can provide to your business. This includes the hardware infrastructure, security, maintenance, software licenses, implementation, training, support, integration services and all upgrades in a single monthly investment.

The upgrades in most cases include updates, enhancements, plus the required services to help your business take advantage of them. For the most part this is a good thing. Compared to on premise solutions, there is minimal impact to your budget because a cloud ERP subscription eliminates the days of expensive hardware upgrades, overhauls and upgrade fees. When you don’t have to pay extra for upgrades, your business is no longer tethered to outdated versions of technology that minimize efficiencies and impair process improvements. New versions are often easier to use, make business processes more efficient, provide easier access to information, have deeper levels of functionality, provide greater levels of integration and are more secure and stable.

But what if your business is not ready to tackle an upgrade to take advantage of the latest software?
