Consider a Cloud-based Warehouse Management Software System From an ROI Perspective
August 19th 2020 14:41:16 PM
At one time, the only option available when buying software was installing it on your computer. You’d have to install updates as they became available and you were responsible for making sure you had the latest version of the programs you were running. Keep in mind that these updates needed to be installed while (hopefully) causing a minimum of disruption to your day-to-day operations. Around this time, updating to a cloud-based warehouse management software system sounds like a really good idea.
If you are ready to take the next step to a cloud-based warehouse management software system, there’s no need to put it off. Just contact us online or call (330) 645-9959 to schedule an appointment with a Scanco Solutions Expert right now.
Cloud-based Warehouse Management Software System From an ROI POV
If you are looking to update an existing warehouse management software system and decide to go with a cloud-based model for your business, it is important to ensure this idea makes sense from an ROI point of view. Moving to a cloud-based system is not just the next step forward in technology, it also gives you some real financial benefits.
- No Up-Front Investment
With this type of system, there is no large, up-front investment required. Instead, you pay month-to-month for the service. If you are operating a small or medium-sized business, this can make more sense than having to plan for a large capital expense.
- Lower Ownership Cost
Once you introduce a cloud-based warehouse management software system into your business, you will no longer be responsible for system upgrades. The vendor is responsible for the routine software maintenance, which includes all scheduled upgrades and installing patches.
- Fewer Training Costs
There will be less time and money spent on training your staff to manage and maintain the software. You will need to devote time to training your team on how to use the software effectively as you introduce it initially and when you hire new staff. The latter costs are to be expected.
- Scalability as Business Grows
When considering solutions for your business, you need to look at what is a good fit at present and how it will suit your future needs. Ideally, the one you choose will have the capability to grow with your business so you aren’t faced with a situation where you have to replace it later on. Otherwise, the ROI is not going to be very high.
