Cloud computing: Most IT leaders turn to SaaS ERP
Most organizations are migrating from resource-intensive on-premises ERP systems to SaaS ERP. For example, 64% of businesses use SaaS ERP compared to 15% who use on-premises ERP.

Cloud ERP offers more benefits than on-premises ERP, including cost savings, easier maintenance, and automatic upgrades. That said, let’s look at why most IT leaders turn to SaaS ERP.

1. Cost Savings

When you implement SaaS ERP, you don’t have to invest in hardware as your vendor hosts the software. Also, you don’t need to hire dedicated IT professionals to maintain the system.

2. Easy to Scale

With SaaS ERP, adding new users is just a matter of time. Again, you don’t need dedicated IT professionals to add new employees or workflows to the ERP. Just contact your vendor, upgrade your plan, and you’re good to go.

3. Real-time Data Sharing

Unlike on-premises ERP, SaaS ERP is hosted on the cloud. This means you can get real-time updates anywhere using any internet-connected device. You no longer need to stay in the office to update the client about the latest improvements.

4. Modern User Interface

The easier the software is to use, the more your employees will use it. Its simplicity will also improve productivity and efficiency in your organization. Plus, if you use a customized ERP, completing tasks would get much simpler for your employees, thereby increasing the return on investment.

5. Continuous innovation

SaaS ERP vendors maintain your software, including upgrades and software patches. IT leaders won’t have to worry about upgrading as the vendor usually introduces new functionalities to help you get the most out of your investment. You can even choose to delay upgrades (as it usually affects your subscription costs).


SaaS ERP provides more cost savings, increases productivity, ensures real-time data sharing, and has an easy-to-use interface. Plus, SaaS ERP is easier to scale and requires little to no maintenance from your side.
