What is Cloud ERP?

Everybody’s talking about it. Every business wants to be in it. But what exactly IS the cloud?

Many of us are already familiar with the cloud but may not know it. We store our emails and photos online, and we access online music and video on our cell phones and home computers. However, the cloud has been a significant game changer for manufacturing, distribution and supply chain enterprises, leading them to improved efficiency and productivity, reduced costs, technology innovation and growth.

The Cloud

Cloud computing lets you store and access data and software applications on the Internet instead of your own computer hard drive or a big server in your company’s building. Data is actually stored and managed on remote servers, and end users run web-based applications that use those computing resources. Both the remote servers and the entire process is what we call “the cloud.”

Cloud ERP

The cloud makes cloud ERP possible.

The cloud provides the technology foundation for cloud ERP. The Rootstock Cloud ERP solution helps small and medium-sized manufacturers, distributors and supply chains compete with larger firms and move into different markets, and it frees larger firms from their expensive legacy on-premise ERP systems.

Reduced Costs

Reduced Costs

Data and applications are stored remotely, so there’s no need to buy and maintain expensive hardware.

Enjoy faster ROI

Reduced capital expenditures; lower IT overhead, including infrastructure, maintenance and life cycle costs; and an end to time-consuming, costly upgrades help you quickly realize your return on investment.

Centralized Data Storage

Centralized Data Storage

The cloud is ideal for storing and managing large amounts of data.

Turn data into actionable business intelligence

Data generated by both human activity and machines no longer has to be stored and accessed manually from multiple locations in different formats. Everything from engineering plans and bills of materials to customer and sales data can be stored in the cloud and accessed by the different departments of your enterprise.

Scalability

Scalability

The cloud can deliver more or less computing power to match business requirements.

Adapt to changing customer demands

Dynamic markets, shrinking demand, projected growth - cloud ERP gives you the flexibility to scale up or down as needed, and pay only for those computing resources that you use.

On-Demand Real-Time Access

On-Demand Real-Time Access

Cloud-based software and data is accessible in real time from any location with an internet connection.

Make on-the-fly business decisions anywhere, anytime

All along your supply chain, workers in every department can react instantly to resolve issues, enter data more quickly and accurately, fill orders faster and manage inventory more efficiently. Add social collaboration to the mix and your entire enterprise can coordinate work in real time across the globe.

Automation

Automation

The high speed of data and application access in the cloud allows streamlined and repeatable business processes.

Increase efficiency, productivity and agility

Cloud ERP simplifies workflows and integrates disconnected functions to give you visibility across your entire enterprise. Connecting your customer and sales data to your inventory, production and distribution introduces new efficiencies and improves worker productivity to help you stay lean and agile. When your system is part of a large, popular cloud platform like Salesforce, you can expand your cloud-based ERP solution with additional software that integrates with your cloud-based ERP out of the box.

Innovation

Innovation

The cloud continues to drive new technology such as smart machines and advanced analytics.

Create new business models and attract new customers

Mobile technology is everywhere, but your future may also include the Internet of Things, wearable technology, innovative new ways of looking at critical business data, and even new after-sales business models. Cloud ERP makes all of these innovations possible.

Security

Security

The cloud is protected by secure data centers with strict access control, redundant systems, continual monitoring and advanced privacy protection.

Adhere to tough security protocols to keep your data safe with no costly downtime

Nothing is more important than keeping your data secure. Between the advanced security of the cloud and your active participation in creating and enforcing security protocols in your enterprise, cloud ERP ensures that your critical data is always safe.
