A Cloud ERP comes with 3 great advantages:
Let's see in detail what these advantages mean for your company:
Save time and costs
Opting for a Cloud ERP solution means no license costs, no installation, no investment in hardware. A Cloud ERP allows a considerable economic saving in terms of purchase and management costs. Compared to on-premises solutions, which require substantial initial investments in sufficiently performing machines, qualified assistance and technicians, with Fluentis Cloud the maintenance and resolution of technical problems are our responsibility.
Access anytime, anywhere
With a Cloud ERP you can control, monitor and work on your management data from anywhere and at any time because process management is no longer relegated to a company computer, but moves with you. An Internet connection is enough to be able to work. With a Cloud solution you can give a profiled access to the system to your customers or suppliers in complete safety.
Data always protected
Contrary to what some people think, data security on the cloud is higher than data stored locally on company servers. We use a multi-level security system for the infrastructures responsible for hosting the data of the client companies that protects their integrity. Furthermore, every day a security copy of the data is created as a further guarantee against the risk of being deleted or lost.
