Lower Total Cost of Ownership
Cloud software requires far less initial investment and maintenance expenses, having a lower total cost of ownership than an on-premise software.
Focus on Core Competencies
The cloud helps manufacturers stay away from buying and implementing expensive on-premise software and focus on buying, making, and selling products to customers.
No Frivolous Licensing Lawsuits:
On-premise software providers have sued for Millions of Dollars based on Indirect Usage. Cloud providers have simpler and more customer friendly licensing requirements.
Upgrades for on-premise software can cost millions. Cloud providers make continuous improvements and users can always be on the latest software version, with minimal upgrade costs.
Employees can make smarter decisions irrespective of time and location. With secure internet access, they can use laptops, tablets, and smartphones rather than being on-site.
Access to Talent
Manufacturers in rural areas struggle to recruit qualified IT employees. With cloud software, users have access to cloud providers' deep pool of qualified IT professionals.
