We implement change based on your company culture and vision!
We believe that implementation styles and approaches will greatly impact the outcome user adoption. Since no company’s culture is quite the same, it is important for the solution provider to immerse him/herself into your culture. ERP and CRM solutions are not the key to success. But the right solution for the right people is what brings significan beneficial change in a company.
You can choose between open-source, a one-time payment or a monthly/ yearly licence solutions.
These solutions are developed by a community of people, is free but needs to be hosted at your own premise or by a 3rd party host. Opensource will end up costing you money considering hosting, security, uptime and infrastructure.
Monthly/ yearly license:
ERP and CRM’s can be used for a montly/ yearly licence fee. Not paying the fee will result in a loss of access to the software or will affect the support of the solution by its vendor.
These solutions are typically found on specalised shops and once purchased, will be used and maintained by the vendor until its next release. These require hosting on local databases.
CRM and ERP’s are made on two main technologies, either requiring server infrastructure or using a secured database at the vendor’s servers.
Software installed on your own computer/ server is considered on-premise. These are divided into 3 main business sizes: Small businesses, Medium sizes companies and Large corporations. Generally, the larger the company size, the more expensive the on-premise licence and infrastructure investment and running costs will be.
The price of true-cloud solution is generally based on the licence type and the user access fees. This means that you will be paying the same price for an accounting package regardless of your business size. The difference will be the number of users.
OpenSource solutions require you to manage the hosting of its software as well as your data on your own secured and maintained servers. Backups and restores are to be managed by your own employees or a vendor of your choice.
Updates and upgrades:
True-Cloud solutions provide automatic and seamless software updates and upgrades as well as an up-time guarantee of 99.95%.
On-premise software requires you to invest in internal resources (or use a vendor) to purchase, maintain, upgrade the hardware and software elements of the solution.
Ransomwares and security breaches are becoming increasingly frequent. Securing your data is assured by the true-cloud vendor in contrast with On-premise.
