When selecting a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, one of the first considerations to make is whether to go hosted (on the cloud) or on-premise. Although both types have their advantages and disadvantages, it’s worth taking a closer look and offering points of consideration to make the software selection process less daunting. Software Advice, an advisory firm that helps buyers select ERP software, conducted research to create a comprehensive guide to help buyers determine the best type of software needed for their organization, with findings compiled in this article.

The biggest difference between the two types of systems is cloud-based software is hosted on the vendor’s servers and accessed through a Web browser, while on-premise software is installed locally, on a company’s own computers and servers. Although over time, both systems’ cost tend to converge, cloud-based software is priced under a monthly or annual subscription basis, while on-premise software is usually priced under a one-time perpetual license fee.

Some advantages of cloud-based ERP software include its shorter implementation time, great stability with frequent updates from the vendor and no additional hardware investments. On the other hand, some disadvantages of this type of system are its less customizable functionalities and an organization’s possible less peace of mind that comes with data security being in the vendor’s hands.

On the other end of the spectrum, on-premise ERP systems are known to be more customizable and offer greater control over data. However, the implementation process can take longer and organizations have to pay associated hardware and IT costs. Organizations will find that cloud-based ERP systems are more mobile-friendly compared to their on-premise counterpart. 

It would be in an organization’s best interest to first assess its needs, budget and top concerns before deciding on the right type of ERP system that will be the right fit.

A Handy Guide for Your ERP Software Selection Process

Written by

The process of selecting an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software is no easy task. With many factors to consider such as cost, vendors, business needs, and the vast software selection in the market, the task of choosing the right ERP software becomes all the more complex. Software Advice, an advisory firm that helps buyers research and choose ERP software, conducted research and sought expert advice to create a comprehensive guide to help buyers through the ERP selection process, with findings compiled in this e-book.

Research shows that 59% of buyers cite data integration as the top reason for purchasing a system, while a staggering 24% of users say their current system lacks adequate support. If you find yourself in the same boat as these buyers, it might be worth investing in a new ERP system.

Below are some tips to help in your ERP software selection process:

1. Assess your business needs and identify must-haves

  • Look into your business needs and identify key issues that need to be resolved with the aid of an ERP software, then form a selection committee comprised of both mission-critical employees and IT staff. This ensures that all voices (of varying departments) will be heard and unique needs will be evaluated.

2. Outline your key requirements

  • After forming the committee, have everyone write up their own “wish list” of issues that they would want to be solved with the help of an ERP software, and specific capabilities they want the new system to have. At the end of the brainstorming session, the committee should have a concrete list of immediate business issues that need to be resolved and a shortlist of features that the new software must have.

3. Create a list of vendors

  • Some factors to consider when creating a shortlist of vendors include: how the vendor targets your industry (or niche), your budget, deployment preferences, must-haves, technical requirements, ERP functional strengths and user-friendliness.

4. Get references from vendors and other reputable sources

  • Once you’ve narrowed down your list of possible vendors, it’s worth gathering references from third-party reviews, people in your industry who are currently using the systems in your shortlist, news articles, and current clients of the vendors who are in the same industry or who use similar ERP modules that you would need.

5. Decide and negotiate

  • Make sure to negotiate for software pricing after you’ve made your selection and ensure that every single promise and requirement fulfillment is noted in writing from the vendor.

WebSan Solutions Inc., a cloud Microsoft Dynamics Certified Partner and IT consulting and solutions provider has moved to a new office that offers a bigger and brighter workspace. The new office space will support a significant expansion of WebSan’s team and the growth that the Canadian company is continually experiencing.

The previous office space that the company occupied had limited space which could no longer support the increase in WebSan’s team. As WebSan continues to experience business growth, an expansion in office space was a natural next step to better accommodate the team’s needs and an increase in new clients.   

Over the past year, WebSan has acquired a substantial number of new clients and particularly strengthened its Dynamics CRM practice.

“Our team is excited about expanding our office space to accommodate WebSan’s growth. The new office space will not only allow us to better serve our customers, but also reflects our progression as a company,” said Andrew King, Managing Director of WebSan Solutions Inc.

5 Reasons to Choose Cloud Computing

Written by

Perhaps your company is struggling with existing complex and costly business software and hardware in order to carry out your day-to-day business activities. Your company has hired a team of expensive specialists/experts to manage and maintain these systems. It has come to the point that your company can no longer keep up-to-date with the latest technology due to limited resources. What should your company seek in a new enterprise solution? With the beginning of a new year, it's important to consider the advantages of making a transition to the cloud.

Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is a network of your company's business areas located externally on the internet.  The biggest advantage of cloud computing is that you no longer have to purchase expensive business software or hardware - not to mention the costly IT staff required to maintain your systems. All of your company's activities and information are located in an external online server which is supported and managed by an experienced vendor. As all your business functions are online, all necessary updates, upgrades, and backups are done automatically. Additionally, your company benefits from access to real-time information from each department such as HR, Marketing, Sales, and Accounting, among other business areas. Finally, your company benefits from being able to scale your cloud network up or down depending on your business needs and/or as your company grows. With these factors in mind, consider these 5 reasons to choose cloud computing as your next business venture:

Up and running within days/weeks as there is no purchase of hardware or software. All you need is an internet connection.
Reduce dependence on IT personnel.
Remotely access your information from any location on any device.
Real-time access to your company's information across all business areas.
Scalability allows for your company to make changes as your company grows.
