Why Mobility Matters in Cloud ERP

Smartphones have revolutionised the way we use technology, and the way we do business on a day-today basis. Everywhere you turn, you find someone on a mobile device. They’re texting, shopping, tweeting, and banking while on the move. More and more, however, people are using their phones, laptops, and tablets as mobile workstations, especially now that working remotely is an option for more than half of the companies across the globe. Being able to work from wherever, whenever is fast becoming a critical component of business success – making mobility a top feature to look for when selecting a cloud ERP solution.

An ERP solution is an ideal way for your organisation to handle finance, customer service, resource management, and everything in between more efficiently and cost-effectively than ever before. ERP software is even better when it’s cloud-based. Why? Because the cloud provides an additional layer of security, allows for quicker implementations, creates less software maintenance clutter, and minimises the need for IT support along the way. Making the switch to true cloud ERP is a no-brainer – it’s improvement all around.

Likewise, mobility is a crucial part of modern cloud ERP solutions because it enables new levels of productivity and tighter management across your operation. Your workforce is empowered to conduct their work anywhere at any time, while still being able to check up on core business processes and metrics. As one of PCMag’s 19 Best Business Mobile Apps, Acumatica Cloud ERP and Acumatica Mobile ERP App for iOS and Android are always at the forefront of delivering ERP solution mobility. The benefits of Acumatica’s mobile ERP app include real-time and 24/7 access to updated information, extended functionality with Acumatica’s Mobile Application Framework, and automatic synchronisation.

Let’s say you work in the construction industry and need to access change orders from the job site, but don’t want to waste time travelling back to the office – Acumatica Cloud ERP enables you to check critical data on-site and in real-time. That’s just one example, but there’s no end to the possibilities when you think of how mobile-first ERP can improve efficiency for your remote working teams.

This level of connectivity will certainly help improve your workforce’s productivity but there are other advantages too. There’s far less chance of error when your employees have real-time visibility of core business data. Risk of double entry for any sort of data is dramatically reduced when it can be added in real-time. This improves efficiency for your office employees too, as they’ll benefit from the availability of these real-time updates being made by those working remotely.

Mobility is critical when you look at just how streamlined it can make your business. We live in a digital age where connectivity isn’t just appreciated but expected. It’s no longer a choice, but an inevitability – and ERP is no exception in that regard.
