More and more businesses are migrating to SaaS accounting and ERP software platforms, however a lot of companies still need the customization features of their on-premise accounting software but could use benefits that cloud hosting has to offer. If your business is looking for more flexibility, reliability and security; the cloud removes the hassle of maintaining and updating systems, allowing you to invest your time, money and resources into fulfilling your core business strategies. Here are the 5 Common Cloud Hosting Benefits you get when your Accounting or ERP software is hosted in a cloud environment:

  1. A Secure Environment

Private resources and access for data protection and a fully secure environment. You can protect your most valuable assets, your data with secure data encryption, incident monitoring, and endpoint controls.

  1. Customize & Control with Flexibility

On premise ERP / Accounting software platforms often appeal to a lot of businesses that are looking for tighter control over their organization. They need to meet specific regulations and customizations, but often times that comes with a lack of flexibility and mobility. When you take your on premise ERP and create a hybrid cloud solution, you keep the control you need but also gain the flexibility and mobility benefits you want.

  1. A Virtual Workspace

Moving your business applications such as CRM Systems, ERP Software or Accounting Software; you are creating the ability for a remote workforce with better ease of access. When you host your endpoint devices in the cloud, you create a more controlled virtual environment.
