Trying to determine whether your company needs an on-premise or a cloud manufacturing ERP solution to manage your business? With the market share of cloud based solutions increasing in the marketplace from 6% in 2011 to 16% in 2012 – it’s easy to understand why you might be considering the merits of cloud manufacturing ERP. So how do you cut through the fog of uncertainty when trying to make the best decision for your company?
Panorama Consulting, a leading independent ERP selection firm, recently cited three key areas of focus when determining whether on-premise or cloud ERP best fits the needs of your company – flexibility, control & security, and integration. Let’s take a look at how JOBSCOPE manufacturing ERP software addresses these key areas.
Flexibility. Whether you need to deploy on-premise, or in the cloud, JOBSCOPE manufacturing ERP software has you covered.

Control and Security. Quoting Panorama directly, “Our research and experience shows that cloud providers typically provide more secure and reliable solutions than any internal IT group ever could…” If Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE), a longtime JOBSCOPE ERP customer in the UK, feels that our software security is good enough for their nation’s nuclear defense program, odds are it will meet the needs of your business. You’ll get the same security that it takes to manufacture and maintain Trident warheads, at no additional cost.
Integration. Having an enterprise-wide solution that can manage all of your software programs is critical to streamlining your business processes for optimal ROI. Ideally, if you can minimize the points of software integration that are necessary, then you can effectively circumvent some of the 3rd party relationships and bolt-on applications that your software may require.
