What’s Driving Manufacturing Companies to Move Enterprise Software to the Cloud?

Manufacturing companies are reviving their approach to data management.  From workflow efficiency to cost savings and organizational growth – it’s easy to see why they are progressively investing in cloud computing platforms to reach their target. 

Most technology dependent industries are under great pressure from their executives to become 100% cloud based. They stand firm in the belief that cloud-based software is the way of the future.  Not only can they reduce their costs, but they are able to communicate more efficiently and increase their business continuity while decreasing their time to market.

Alongside executives are managers who appreciate the productivity of modern day ERP software. Cloud-based ERP software centralizes data from numerous areas and locations to provide a unified view of the entire organization. This allows manufacturers to keep up with demands from their customers in real-time.  Software is up to date immediately upon release. The system is available as long as you have an internet connection, allowing employees and customers access no matter where they are.

Still today, many manufacturers are working with a much older version of ERP software. There is no better time than now to replace an older system.  In the midst of groundbreaking new technologies and flexible pricing plans – it is easier to switch, easier to manage and less costly to maintain. The cost-savings are a quick and sustainable win for your organization. 

When thinking of cloud technology its important to think long-term. While you are likely to reduce costs as a result of moving to the cloud, if deployed correctly, it should also result in automation driven efficiencies as well as cost-savings across the organization – not just now, but in the future as well.

The most successful manufacturers today are seeing results because their executives see the value in implementing cloud based software. They are making careful, strategic decisions with the right software vendors and implementation partners to make an impact on their company.  Interested in making the change but not sure which cloud-based ERP system is right for you?
