Cloud ERP as Software as a Service (SaaS).

An ERP system doesn’t have to be run exclusively as an on-premise solution. A growing number of manufacturers offer cloud ERP systems that can be easily run as an SaaS meaning there’s no need for additional administration, maintenance or updates. The company only pays a monthly flat-fee.
So what about security? Of course, no business wants their business-critical data stored on third-party servers because they fear it being stolen by hackers or competitors gaining valuable insights into their dealings. That’s why classic ERP systems today are preferred on-premise in an in-house data centre rather than as an ERP cloud solution.

What’s the difference between on-prem and cloud ERP? Which system is the best?

ERP cloud solutions can be procured as a Service from the cloud giving maximum flexibility. Businesses can switch between different easy-to-scale solutions and pay only for the ERP solution they actually use. 
Another benefit is that because a growing number of employees work on the go or from home, provisioning and sharing of data from the cloud is much easier and more effective.
On the other hand, those businesses who prefer an ERP system for their own data centre tend to get everything but the kitchen sink – whether they want it or not. In summary, cloud-based ERP systems offer more opportunities and freedoms.

What is enterprise resource planning (ERP)?

Resource planning covers capital, accounting, assets, personnel, warehousing, orders, production, etc, but an ERP system doesn’t only control business processes, but manages and analyses them with the aim of providing a complete overview of all business-relevant items and transactions.
An ERP system works holistically, but can also be used for specific areas such as financing, inventory management, production planning, research, order processing and many more.
There are numerous ERP providers on the market offering ERP systems for small businesses and large corporations including, for example, Microsoft, SAP solutions, SAGE, and Oracle.

Tailored ERP.

In 1990, Günter and Ilse Achleitner transformed their conventional farm, located alongside the fertile banks of the Austrian Danube, into an organic operation. Both were wholeheartedly convinced of the benefits of using natural farming methods. Neither could imagine at the time how successful their endeavour would prove to be.
