It’s important for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to scope out and capture all related costs associated with their cloud ERP system. Without combing through the fine print, it’s easy for costs to quickly spiral out of control.
With most cloud ERP options today, the subscription typically includes licensing, support and upgrades. Of course, not every vendor is the same — far from it, in fact. Details of the six primary line items — licensing, training, upgrades, support, ongoing maintenance and “services,” which should include initial setup, data migration and implementation — vary dramatically from provider to provider.
With so many factors to consider, finding the best and most cost-effective vendor for your company’s needs is going to require a bit of work.
