Top Five Reasons to Switch to Cloud-Based EDI Solutions

cloud-basedQuestion: Roger, we have an old, on-premises EDI solution and our IT consultant is recommending that we switch to a cloud-based EDI system. What are the advantages of switching to a cloud-based EDI solution?

Answer: Cloud computing is the use of computing resources that are delivered as a service over a network (typically the Internet). The name comes from the use of a cloud-shaped symbol as an abstraction for the complex infrastructure it contains in system diagrams.

At B2BGateway, our Software as a Service (SaaS) based EDI solutions are often referred to as ‘cloud-based EDI’, as they are delivered over the internet. In fact, we have been doing this since 1999, long before the term ‘cloud computing’ was invented. In listening to our clients and studying their user habits, we have come up with the following top 5 advantages for switching to a cloud-based EDI solution:

  1. Cloud-based EDI computing solutions require no further investment or outlay in expensive computing hardware or infrastructure and can integrate fully with ERP/Accounting software solutions such as Sage, NetSuite, Microsoft Dynamics, Epicor, Intuit, Intacct, etc.
  2. Your organization does not have to have a large IT based staff or great EDI knowledge.
  3. Cloud computing systems can deliver substantial cost reduction – costs are based on your usage and are not fixed.
  4. Scalability – using the cloud allows your organization to scale resources on demand, i.e. spikes in a seasonal market place.
  5. Cloud based EDI solutions allow for multiple users in multiple locations throughout the globe.
