Benefits of Hosted ERP
When you use Blue Link’s cloud-based software, you don’t need to worry about the technical side of things. Instead, you get to just do your work. We handle all of the security, back-ups, upgrades and other “IT stuff” and keep your data safe and secure, so that you can focus on what’s most important for your distribution business.
The benefits of a SaaS cloud implementation include:
- No large upfront cash outlay
- Infrastructure and hardware costs are pushed to the software vendor (Blue Link)
- No more worrying about backups
- Painless, annual upgrades
- Increased access to expert support (in lieu of an IT department)
- Remote access from anywhere with an internet connection
- Improved security and reliability (malware protection, database back-ups and secure methods of connection)
- Increased up-time and redundancy
- Immediate or quick access to a broad range of applications
- Monthly fees include warranty costs
No more hardware or servers.
Blue Link’s cloud-based software lives on our servers – so you don’t need to worry about managing your own equipment. This means you don’t need to maintain any equipment in-house or worry about costly maintenance and upgrades. Instead of spending money on expensive equipment and the people to required to manage said equipment, you can put it towards something better….like a pool table for your team. Or an ice cream machine.
We don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk.
We use our software every day. For managing leads, for accounting purposes, for reporting and analysis, project management and more. And we store all of our sensitive and confidential data on the same servers that our customers use. We trust our security policies and run our entire business on the systems we sell.
Access all of your data in one place.
A major benefit to cloud-based software is that all your data is centralized and accessible over the internet from any computer, at any time. You don’t need to worry about storing data in multiple places, on multiple devices. Instead, you can access your data and systems from anywhere with an internet connection.
You can work from home, from the office or on the road.
Speaking of accessing the software from anywhere, Blue Link’s cloud-based ERP is secure even when not in the office. When you use hosted ERP software, your office is everywhere. At work, at home, at a customer’s office, a hotel – anywhere you have internet, you can access Blue Link. As part of our security features, we help you access the system through a VPN when you’re working remotely – which means even more security no matter where you are.
Your data is backed up automatically every day.
Daily backups, and even better, our backups are stored in multiple physical locations for further security and redundancy. You never have to worry about losing your data – we never have, and we never will. We have a dedicated team of people to manage your data, your systems and your software every day.
You’re always using the latest and greatest technology.
Unlike on-premises software which puts the upgrade process on you, our software is updated on an annual basis by our in-house team of experts. We plan annual, scheduled upgrades to make sure you’re on the latest version of the system and always using the most up-to-date technology.
