Know the Benefits of Adopting Cloud-Based Systems and how they can help companies to grow and to improve their operations.
Nowadays, technology is a very important part of our lives, and we use it for just about everything. It seems to change daily and to keep up, we must change with it.
Adopting new technology can help companies to grow and to improve their operations. According to the websites Precision Software and Unity Communications, a cloud-based system refers to anything related to the delivery of hosted services via the Internet, and it can be either private or public. This technology has created an essential digital world that can be used in any industry. These cloud-based systems provide enterprises with a holistic view of their operations, improving visibility and team collaboration.
We spoke with experts in our company, and they gave us their opinion about adopting this technology in the supply chain industry.
Andrew Gulovsen, our CMO, says that integration and collaboration are key elements to agility and success within the supply chain. He thinks that having cloud-based platforms and applications allows the consumers of data to analyze and curate from anywhere and at any time. Also, he argues that sharing this intelligence between customers, partners and suppliers keeps every stakeholder connected to valuable information in order to make the best decisions. Finally, he says that continual updates and iterations of the business programs require easy access. Cloud-based systems push these changes to reduce disruptions for seamless improvement and better insight.
Adriana Padilla, technology expert and Product Development Director at Hubtek believes that one of the benefits of adopting this technology is that carriers are able to quote more, which translates into more money for your company. She also says that because you can automate mundane processes, it allows you to give more valuable tasks to your team, and they will enjoy their jobs more because they have the technology to work with and can do their job in less time.
She states that another benefit is that these technologies minimize mistakes, because they are extremely accurate. She thus concludes that when a company grows, if the technology grows with it, you will have a positive return on investment because it will reduce costs and allow you to do more things in less time.
According to Carlos Gonzalez, our Customer Success Manager, this software increases efficiency and reduces costs. He says that by using cloud infrastructure you don’t need to spend a huge amount of money on purchasing and maintaining equipment, because when you have all the services online, you can automate mundane processes and workflows. It simply means that in the cloud, you will perform any given process step-by-step, to create an efficient analysis based on the input of your business.
He also argues that another great benefit is scalability and growth. As business demands increase, you can easily increase your cloud capacity without having to invest in a physical infrastructure, only in cloud storage; and when the current plan is not enough, you can upgrade the service. Also, if you need to move data from one location to another, the extra space that is required can be added to your storage environment. The good thing about it is that here, you only pay for what you are going to use.
To conclude, he says that cloud-based platforms are on the rise every single year, and it doesn’t take much to see why. Companies recognize cloud benefits, and they see the impact in their production, security, and ROI.
