Are you contemplating moving to a cloud ERP or CRM solution? It’s important for you to consider timing and be prepared.
Where Do You Fit in the Following ERP Solution Examples?
Scenario One: Required Updates
Often, organizations with an on-premise environment will find themselves saying, “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.”
But, without even knowing it, you could have issues or parameters with your current solution that could become a roadblock in the future.
If you have requirements around browsers, or operating systems, or databases, they may force you to upgrade your CRM or ERP solution. In that case, if you’ve customized, there might be a significant investment required for you to do that.
That’s when it’s typically a good time to take a look at cloud-based solutions.
Scenario Two: Quick Expansion
When a company that is part of an overall larger organization wants to ramp up and expand quickly, cloud solutions provide useful industry-focused solutions and ramp-up quickly for subsidiaries and spin-off companies. We’ve seen a quick expansion to be very useful, and it is time to consider cloud-based solutions.
Scenario Three: First Gen Solutions
Companies with first-generation solutions may be operating with Excel or QuickBooks, as a quick and easy answer. As companies begin to expand, you’ll outgrow these platforms. Leveraging a cloud-based solution is what’s going to take your company and processes to the next level. You’ll have the flexibility and scalability you want for the future.
What If My Organization Doesn’t Fit These Scenarios?
There are multiple scenarios beyond these listed in which a CRM or ERP solution could significantly improve how you grow into the future. The important thing to remember is you need to plan ahead and be prepared.
