On-Premises (In-House) ERP Solution

How On-Premises Software Works

On-premises refers to software applications installed on-location on a client-owned server. Blue Link’s on-premises inventory management and accounting software will be installed by our professional implementation team on your in-house servers. Installation, data migration and employee training services are provided during the installation. Once the system has been installed, the customer becomes responsible for maintaining the system in terms of IT maintenance and managing hardware.

Bue Link’s on-premises solution involves the purchase of one-time paid licenses – you own the software. Additional hardware purchases may be required for the system.
