4 months after the launch of SeniorERP Online, the first customer who has chosen the Software as a Service formula offered by Senior Software, talks about reducing costs at every level of organization:
“The main benefit for a company that implements SeniorERP is reducing expenditures: the ERP helps you identify losses in a business and to eliminate them in time. Specifically, an ERP involves a more efficient organization, viewing in real time all company assets, and implicitly allows decisions in a timely manner. The launch of SeniorERP Online has helped us to access a complex system, fora modest budget. We have outsourced a number of expenses that would have tripled the cost of investment in an ERP. ”
Cristiana Alexandru, Finance Director at Sea Bell Trading
SeniorERP Online’s principal benefit is that it does not require licensing costs, infrastructure hardware / software or server maintenance for an ERP implementation. Data storage and management of server infrastructure are the responsibility of the software provider, while the customer accesses the functions and data online, in real time and from any location, based on a monthly subscription of 69 EUR per user.
Online SeniorERP addresses companies which:
• have less than 20 users of the ERP system;
• have more points in the country and desire access to information in real time;
• desire implementation of a complex, mature, experienced ERP;
• needs simple integration, do not require extensive customization;
• desire a very short time of implementation;
• have limited technical resources or do not want to invest in hardware infrastructure;
• do not want to hire permanent staff specializing in IT;
• desire extension of the total costs of ownership (TCO) for the ERP system over a longer period of time;
“The SeniorERP Online has proven to be closest to our needs in terms that we had a small number of users, we had no IT department and required the acquisition of new servers. This variant involves accessing and operating SeniorERP online on a monthly subscription. Our data can be accessed in real time from the system, regardless of location. ” Cristiana Alexandru, Finance Director at Sea Bell Trading
The major prejudices on this type of online solutions is related to the security of company data storage in the Data Center and to the fact that ownership rights of the system are not transferred, the customer having in exchange ownership right for its own data. In the interview given to Senior Software, Ms. Cristiana Alexandru, Finance Director at Sea Bell Trading identifies counter-arguments which are, in fact, competitive advantages for the company:
“Hosting data in a Data Center proved a reliable and less costly alternative to the to storing of data on our own servers. We realized that such an action is as natural as outsourcing accounting, or other activities of the company, this will improve the new work. Ownership of the license is compensated by the right for use of the application, based on the monthly subscription fee, which exempts from servers with additional costs and IT maintenance. We made a calculation and practically, for the Enterprise version, besides the initial investment, we paid at least the monthly subscription cost of system maintenance. “
Implementation of the ERP system in the Online variant, following the Software as a Service, is a new trend that more and more software suppliers tend towards, in an attempt to reduce the initial investment for the business. On condition that such implementation was a success, Ms. Cristiana Alexandru said:
“Openness and verticality of the software provider are those that guarantee the success of implementation. Knowing that every time problems could arise, we got solutions for every situation in hand, helped us pass easily over the specific challenges of ERP implementations.
In our case, the support received from the Support Department of Senior Software was great, prompt. I felt the lack of involvement of an internal IT person, because that support has helped us very much, even when I needed additional configuration. ”
