Although cloud-based ERP solutions can help companies manage upfront and ongoing IT costs, many businesses are put off by initial setup fees, minimum user requirements, and annual contracts.
Because of these complexities, potential customers find it difficult to compare vendor offerings.
Many customers are uncertain about what they are getting for their money. Similarly, many solution providers are unsure of how and when to recommend cloud-based ERP, says Linda Rose, President and CEO at RoseASP, a division of Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Rose Business Solutions that focuses on offering Microsoft Dynamics GP and other business software in an on-demand environment.
Rose explains that businesses often do not have free time to spend investigating the ERP solution that they need to make their operations more profitable. Aiming to simplify on-demand ERP for customers and partners, RoseASP decided to build an ERP offering that combined the company’s experience in financial accounting with top-tier hosting capabilities.
Apart from the team that runs our IT operations, we are all accountants who understand what is needed in various industries, says Rose. ―We used our accounting expertise to simplify the setup needed for customers to get started on Microsoft Dynamics GP in a cloud environment. Our goal was to make the offering, setup, and pricing easy to understand so that customers and partners could be confident in trying out the solution.
