Finding the Right Manufacturing ERP Software for Your Business

Finding the right ERP shop management software for your business

When determining the shop management software package that best fits your business needs, budget and technology infrastructure, it is important to understand the differences between the Cloud and On-Premise platforms.

What separates JobBOSS from other enterprise resource planning (ERP) software solution providers is that we are the only job-based ERP for custom, make-to-order, and mixed-mode manufacturers that offers such a wide variety of solutions, platforms and flexible pricing models. We believe that you should have the power to choose what is best for your business.


Cloud or On-Premise – which one is right for your shop?

Hosting your JobBOSS software on our Cloud platform means your JobBOSS data is housed on a secure remote server, and no on-site hardware or software installation or maintenance is needed. JobBOSS Cloud requires less time and focus from your technical staff, and is accessible 24/7 on many different internet-enabled devices.

On-Premise, on the other hand, means that your business data is maintained on your on-site servers that are accessible through your internal network. As a whole, on-premise solutions provide greater overall control, and can operate without being connected to the internet. On-Premise may require an on-site technical staff capable of handling and maintaining such hardware and software.
