A cloud ERP solution will help any type or size of business grow. The streamlining and automating of your business management processes, including financial, sales, customer management, business intelligence, and reporting, will give you the insights you need to make growth-enhancing business decisions. However, while implementing a cloud ERP brings many benefits, you may be unconsciously aware that your efforts could be hampered by your vendor’s cloud ERP pricing and licensing structure, if it is traditional, confusing, inflexible, or all of these combined.
Your cloud ERP license model may be slowing you down
The implementation of cloud ERP software can be relatively quick and inexpensive to implement into your business. There are no upfront costs for hardware and data servers. There’s little or no need for IT support services because updates and upgrades are in the hands of the cloud vendor. However, if you choose a cloud ERP vendor with traditional cloud ERP pricing, you may be nullifying these benefits and stunting your business growth. To show you how, let’s compare Acumatica’s modern consumption-based pricing structure with a traditional pricing structure through the eyes of actual Acumatica users.
OFS International (OFSi), a company that provides inspection services, couplings manufacturing, threading, storage, accessories, field services, and rig returns in the Oil and Gas industry, closely evaluated 11 ERP systems. They disqualified all but Acumatica, a decision they say saved them $175,000 in user-fee costs and helped support their rapid growth. Yuri Dorovskikh, IT Manager, explains, “Acumatica was the most affordable solution with great value. It came out as a winner because of the unlimited user licensing and easy customization.”
Shivani Raval, Director of Operations for Fidelux Lighting, a company that designs and distributes top-tier LED lighting solutions, says that his business chose Acumatica’s cloud-based ERP solution for several reasons, two being cost and the ability to grow. “Licensing with Acumatica is all about the resources and usage rather than how many users you have. As we move into new markets, Acumatica gives us the confidence that we can handle the increase in transactions and growth with ease for many years.”
Affordable growth with Acumatica cloud ERP
Many businesses from different sectors have chosen Acumatica due to its affordable, consumption-based pricing over our competitors’ restrictive licensing. Acumatica customers confidently add users at any time, knowing that there are no additional license costs for adding users, whether they’re casual users, suppliers, or customers.
The Acumatica modern cloud ERP pricing and licensing is based on:
- What applications you want to use now (all applications are integrated and can be added at any time)
- The type of license you choose (SaaS Subscription, Private Cloud Subscription, or Private Perpetual License) with the ability to switch without penalty
- Your projected level of consumption (which is based on the volume of your business transactions and storage)
Because your level of consumption increases and decreases over time, you can increase or decrease your resource levels and data storage when you need. Additionally, because you don’t have to worry about paying for a per-user license, every employee can access your cloud ERP solution at the same time, which means accessing real-time data for insights based on a “single version of the truth.” Charging for the resources used rather than per user powerfully impacts a business’s ability to grow.
Your right to life, liberty, and growth
You may have heard of the saying “grow or die” which is an important element in business when looking to thrive. Effective growth is possible with Acumatica’s consumption-based cloud ERP pricing, which is a right they’ve included in their Acumatica Customer Bill of Rights. They’ve also included the right to sustainable pricing, promising to limit annual increases of no more than 3% when needed (unlike the competitors who often offer low introductory rates and slam you with a 20-to-50% increase after year two or three of the renewal agreement.) Acumatica is committed to protecting your company from shady business practices.
If your current cloud ERP license is hindering your growth, then look no further than Acumatica Cloud ERP.
