Flexibility and freedom certainly make life easier for business owners. But as managers or supervisors, you are expected to do too much in a single day and you end up just longing for some extra hours or wish you could be a genie, who could be present at multiple locations at once. At times you even wish for a time machine so that you can go back in time and mend the loss due to which your company suffered. Alas! Circumstances don’t always behave the way you want them to.
Accessing your business’ data from anywhere in the world at any time might look like a dream. But at times you don’t have the access to your office system, or perhaps, you are out of town for some other official work and desperately need the latest updates on the business operations. Are you too a victim of a similar situation? Then maybe it’s time for you to think about the mobile cloud-based ERP solutions.
Since your very own smartphone is one device that stays with you all the time, wherever you go, how about having your ERP on your phone all the time? Isn’t the idea cool and happening? Definitely!!! Let’s get to explore the concept of mobile cloud ERP even further.
The Need of Cloud-based ERP Arises…
- When you need to work beyond working hours: Being a business owner, typical office hours never bound you. Your business can demand your time and attention anywhere, anytime!
- When you are on a vacation: It’s not surprising if your mind is preoccupied with the thoughts of your business proceedings even when you are on a beautiful beach with your family or friends. Critical business circumstances can even let you sacrifice your much-needed holiday.
- When you want updates from some remote business location: Imagine you are on a business trip and receive a big order on phone. You might immediately wish to know about the current stock levels and available raw material in the warehouse. At such times, you certainly wish you had an Aladdin’s lamp to get the details immediately.
- When you wish to get updates from two separate plant locations simultaneously: Have you ever wanted real-time updates on the production floor while attending an administrative meeting in the boardroom? Often, right? Even it is not possible for you to be present with frontline workforce all the time because you have many other responsibilities to fulfill.
- When you wish to have a cutting-edge over your competitors: Speed, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness are the basic necessities of any business to flourish. Sometimes such extra push, which can never be achieved by your legacy software solutions, too is needed to outsmart the competitors.
- When you want to overcome the age-old legacy processes: The primitive ways of operations and manually operated tasks certainly hamper your efficiency and productivity and you desperately want to switch over to an automated system to overcome loopholes and bottlenecks.
- When you have a large amount of data to deal with: A lot of times you must have faced this challenge of what to do with large chunks of data; how to store, manage and access it on the go? The failure to do so can have serious repercussions on the business.
- When you want to bring down the costs: Just like any other businessman, you too aspire to save both money and time, have enhanced as well as real-time collaboration among the departments, and reduce the time taken to introduce a product to the market. But how?
- When you want to scale your business: You long for only as much storage and power as needed, and wish to have the capability to invariably determine the requirement of resources based on changing project workloads. But it remains a distant dream…
