It’s morning and you’re sipping your coffee trying to get that needed jolt of caffeine as the florescent lights beam too brightly above you at the office. Your coffee is a delicious Italian Roast that you made at home, and it’s so smooth and creamy with that tablespoon of milk you put in there. Aren’t you glad you decided to buy a whole bunch of cows to milk every morning to make your coffee tastier?
Wait, you didn’t go and milk a cow this morning? Why not?
Wait, let me guess: You like the time and cost savings you get from letting the milk company keep cows, milk those cows, and process that milk. I’d guess that you also appreciate that all you have to do to drink delicious, milky coffee is pay a small amount to buy a gallon of milk. This concept of saved time and money applies to your business systems, too. If you’re like me and you don’t want to have to go to a huge amount of cost and effort just to get your everyday business tasks done, you might want to consider switching to a cloud-based ERP such as NetSuite.
What does NetSuite have to do with cows? NetSuite has nothing to do with cows, save for that it helps you save “moo-lah” (sorry, I couldn’t resist).
What is NetSuite?
NetSuite is a cloud-based, enterprise resource planning (ERP) system built to do all the things that you expect your ERP to do. NetSuite helps your business by putting all your critical focus areas (like inventory, finances, shipping, HR, and more) into a big overall picture so that you can track and optimize every aspect of your company, with just a glance. However, NetSuite goes beyond the actual ERP operations you’re used to. In addition to doing everything that your ERP already does for you, NetSuite also saves you time and money.
Imagine how fast your business would grow with more time.
Because NetSuite is a cloud-based ERP, it gives you all the benefits of the cloud: namely outside maintenance, browser-based computing, automatic upgrades and security updates, and automatic backups of your data. Plus, NetSuite gives you the ability to access your company’s up-to-date, real-time data from anywhere at any time, using any device that can access the Web. Imagine how much your IT team could accomplish if they weren’t required to maintain your ERP system all the time. Imagine how much time you’d save if you didn’t always have to be at your desk before you could look up data for your company. There’s no reason you should have to go to the time and effort of milking a cow just to get a tablespoon of milk for your coffee—and there’s no reason your company should have to waste time either.
Imagine how fast your business would grow with more money.
Because it’s on the cloud, NetSuite costs far less, which means there’s more money to grow your business. An ERP system that isn’t on the cloud requires you to buy servers, hire a large IT staff, tie up your money on an infrastructure you’ll only need later, and also make the enormous investment of purchasing that ERP, but with NetSuite, you don’t need to spend money on any of that. NetSuite starts out at the size you need it to be, for an affordable monthly licensing fee. Imagine how much your company could accomplish if you didn’t need to spend money on servers/infrastructure, IT staff, repair costs, or maintenance fees. There’s no reason you should have to purchase a whole cow (plus its food, maintenance, etc.) just to get a tablespoon of milk for your coffee—and there’s no reason your company should have to waste money either.
Now go enjoy your coffee.
