On-Premise

On-premise Manufacturing ERP software maintains your business data on on-site servers that are accessible through your internal network. With an on-premise solution, you own the software outright as opposed to a cloud-based solution in which you license the software for a flat monthly subscription cost. As a whole, on-premise solutions provide greater overall control and are more customizable, and require an IT staff capable of handling and maintaining such software.

Platform features:

  • You have total IT control and responsibility for hardware and software upgrades, uptime, security, and redundancy
  • One time cost for the purchase of software
  • Software is customizable to meet your company’s requirements

Private Hosting (Hosted)

To put it simply, cloud computing gives you the ability to securely access and use your business software through a web browser or any internet enabled device such as phones and tablet computers.

The benefits of a private hosting platform:

  • No need to purchase or own servers/hardware
  • Controllable/predictable monthly costs
  • Minimal IT support required
  • Accessible via the internet - anytime, anywhere, on any device
  • Easily add/remove users
  • Secure and reliable, guaranteed system uptime of 99.95%.
  • No technology infrastructure required (Only internet access)
  • Automatic software upgrades and data backup

Private cloud, also referred to as hosting, means your specific software is housed on a secure remote server that is maintained by a third-party hosting facility as opposed to being shared with other businesses. Private cloud computing, by definition is a single-tenant environment where the hardware, storage and network are dedicated to a single client or company.

  • You have control over the implementation and upgrade of the software
  • Software can be customized to meet your organization’s needs
  • Costs related to hosting service are based on a monthly subscription
  • Software costs are based on either a perpetual license or monthly subscription
