The cloud is changing the way we do business. The term ‘cloud computing’ still confuses many people, which isn’t surprising as different vendors define it in different ways. Your business information is your business’s lifeblood, making it crucial to have a thorough understanding of how the cloud works, whether it’s safe, and where and how you can access your data when you need it.

Cloud business management represents a giant leap forward in how businesses secure and access their mission-critical information. Our new eBook, Moving to the cloud: A guide to cloud business management technology, is a comprehensive overview of what you need to know as you consider moving to cloud business management technology.

Endeavour has used researched evidence to show why businesses are moving to the cloud and how they are benefiting from the move. The eBook will also inform you about different cloud models, security and finding the right fit for your business needs.

More and more, businesses are relying on technology for their core processes and functions. That’s why it’s essential to have the right technology in place to make sure those processes are running smoothly and accurately. This is especially true of critical functions such as accounting, financial management, inventory management and human resources. Having the right solution in place to automate core financial functions will save you time and money, and help support business growth objectives.

Many other benefits include:

  • The ability to access business data anytime, anywhere, and in real time. All that’s needed is an internet connection.
  • The flexibility to scale resources up or down as necessary.
  • More responsive service and support.
  • Minimized financial risks: You can reduce upfront capital spending on technology infrastructure, so you can be up and running with cloud ERP.

The guide will also help allay any perfectly understandable fears about security. How safe are your your corporate jewels - financial, supplier and customer data - in the hands of a third-party provider?

With many cloud-based solutions available, it can become a difficult task selecting the most appropriate one for your business, one that aligns with your strategies and objectives. If you’re considering moving to a cloud business management system or cloud ERP, this guide will help you better understand different types of cloud ERP models, as well as providing guidance around which is the best for you and your business.
