Cloud Integration FAQs

How Does A Cloud Integration Achieve Business Integration?

Achieving ERP Integration

It almost goes without saying that moving everything related to your business to one system allows for immediate integration. For example, it allows employees in different departments to access the information they need when they need it. Of course, you can set viewing parameters, giving employees access to only certain information.

ERP systems generate real-time reports, allowing you to make decisions based on the most current information available. Also, they are designed to make finding the specific information needed easy to find. A wide array of reports on everything from marketing to sales, finances, and employee hours can be created.

They eliminate the need for re-entering pertinent information time and time again, while also preventing information and orders from being duplicated.

What Is The Outcome Of Cloud Integration?

The Outcome Of Integration

Thanks to this integration, you should see increased productivity, efficiency, and even customer satisfaction and acquisition. An ERP system allows customers to easily get an update on the status of their order, know whether or not an item is in stock, resolve any issues promptly, and know the information they are getting is correct. All of these things are sure to result in repeat business.

If you have not already invested in an ERP system for your business, it is definitely time to do so. After all, the sooner your system is implemented, the sooner you will start reaping the rewards, including integration.

What Kind Of Organizations Uses ERP Cloud Integration?

ERP software is beneficial to organizations regardless of size or industry. In recent years, small- to mid-sized organizations have fueled most of the growth in the ERP industry. While large enterprises dominated ERP usage in the past, niche solutions have made it possible for smaller organizations to implement ERP software.

Organizations pursuing digital transformation often implement ERP software to enable their digital strategies. These organizations use technology to create new business and operating models. Their goal in implementing new technology is to improve data insights and the customer experience.

What Is The Difference Between ERP And CRM?

Customer relationship management (CRM) is a type of enterprise software that automates the sales and marketing functions of an organization. Many vendors include CRM software in their full suite of solutions, but some organizations take a best-of-breed approach. They’ll implement a CRM system from another vendor and integrate it with their main system.

A CRM provides real-time data on lead behavior and demographics allowing organizations to personalize their communication with leads and customers. CRM functionality enables organizations to maximize the benefits of their ERP implementations. Improving the customer experience is a common reason organizations implement software solutions.

How Much Does It Cost To Integrate An ERP Software?

ERP software for larger organizations tends to cost more than niche software. Organizations can save money by only implementing the functionality they need instead of implementing a full suite of solutions.

Licensing costs also depend on the deployment model. While cloud computing may be cheaper in the short-term, it is more expensive than on-premise software in the long-term. Cloud and ERP is subscription-based so you pay per user or per module. Maintenance, customization and resources are other costs to consider. You’ll need resources for configuration, data migration and implementation. Beyond these technical components, you’ll need to budget for business process reengineering and change management. The ideal ratio of software costs to service costs is 2:3.

Our ERP consultants can give you that leverage to save as much as 30-60% of what you would have paid otherwise.

While ERP software is expensive, cost shouldn’t be your main concern when deciding whether to initiate an ERP implementation you likely will recoup your costs within three years due to the business benefits you achieved.

What Are Some Of The Risks Associated With ERP Software?

While ERP has the potential to provide numerous business benefits, it can also be a risky proposition. If not managed properly, ERP projects can cost more and take longer than expected. They can also cause operational disruption and employee resistance.

Organizations assume the most risk when they approach their ERP project from a technical perspective instead of business perspective. If you don’t align new technology with your people and processes, you may not realize expected business benefits. You can’t improve data visibility if your ERP system can’t support optimized processes. You also can’t improve the customer experience if your employees don’t know how to perform optimized processes. Other than ERP failure, the biggest risk of ERP implementation is a low ROI.
