Enhancing POS With Cloud ERP: How Retailers Can BenefitSource: NetSuite
Cloud computing is giving SMB retailers new levels of agility, cost-effectiveness, and competitive advantage against bigger companies. This paper discusses the basic workings and benefits of cloud computing, and details benefits that Retail Anywhere’s cloud offering from NetSuite can bring to retailers.
Successful cloud implementation starts with deciding which cloud model you will use and then which provider will be best for your ERP needs. Some providers offer services like Platform as a Service (PaaS) or Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas) which are meant for enterprises that want to develop their own applications, however, these systems are useless for retailers who want ready-to-run ERP applications.
If you want a cloud service that provides a ready-to-run ERP application then you will be looking for a provider of SaaS (Software as a Service) applications. As SaaS becomes more popular there are a growing number of solutions available and picking the right one can be difficult. Using multiple vendors with multiple solutions you are searching for is something to avoid, since the cost reduction from using the cloud may be offset by compatibility issues between multiple cloud vendors.
Retailers should aim to integrate multiple applications into a single ERP system such as CRM, accounting, eCommerce, inventory management, and others. Retail Anywhere selected NetSuite as its retail ERP cloud partner because NetSuite offers a robust and integrated suite of SaaS ERP applications.
