Are you ready to move your Sage ERP to the cloud?

While bracing up to an increasingly mobile workforce trend is a contributing factor for many businesses moving to the cloud today, other key motivators include the push to lower hardware costs and reduce energy bills, as well as automate processes for more scalable, intuitive and efficient business operations. Currently most businesses moving to the cloud are hungry for better business intelligence, with real-time analytics powered by Software as a Service (Saas) applications connecting all critical business processes. By going to the cloud, businesses – including Sage ERP users – can extend the life of their Sage enterprise resource planning solution to increase productivity and profitability.

Case in Point: As a leading fuel distributor, RelaDyne is a Sage ERP user in the cloud. RelaDyne provides select markets with fuels in loads up to transport bulk quantities as well as fuel additive products. Part of the reliability services at RelaDyne includes a suite of fueling services, known as RediFuel. The company operates 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, with a specialized fleet of trucks and equipment and on-hand fuel storage that ensures availability during emergency situations. Right now, RelaDyne is experiencing 20 percent year over year growth. Looking to scale for growth, RelaDyne migrated away from its existing data center provider to CompuData’s Sage Cloud Hosting. One of the biggest draws in RelaDyne’s decision to leverage CompuData’s Sage Cloud Hosting was the fact that CompuData is an experienced Sage Partner with the knowledge, expertise and consultancy to best understand RelaDyne’s environment and the importance of each particular system in RelaDyne’s data center. RelaDyne’s multi-layered architecture and variety of Sage applications needed to be managed by a data center provider with proven Sage competency – particularly as RelaDyne operates 24/7 and must rely on a Sage Cloud Hosting provider to quickly respond to the company’s needs any time of the day or night.
