Digital transformation sure isn’t easy for companies to put into practice. Even in the face of seismic, business-altering culture and customer shifts due to the recent pandemic, companies still struggle with it. Many have spoken about the reasons companies are slow to adopt digital transformation but let us propose an alternative solution. Why not leverage cloud ERP as the catalyst for digital transformation? For companies that manage inventory, it’s an exceptionally straightforward way to successfully move to the cloud. Having something tangible, like inventory, that touches every team in the front and back office, is critical to rally the company and customer experience around.
Struggling with Digital Transformation? Consider Cloud ERP as the Catalyst for Success.
At this stage of the digital transformation movement the consensus among companies that have moved critical systems to the cloud receive substantial benefit including increased revenue, lower costs, and improved customer experience. Furthermore, companies that embrace digital transformation also gain the ability to scale and grow a business more effectively than companies that don’t embrace cloud-based technology.
As the number one CRM solution, Salesforce is a pioneer in the cloud industry, so it’s a logical place to start when considering a move to cloud ERP. Ascent Solutions is the top back office application for helping customers achieve Operations 360 on Salesforce. Recognizing that it is difficult to manage a company well with spreadsheets or cumbersome legacy software, Ascent Solutions provides a cloud-based ERP alternative, for real time data, any time, anywhere.
For companies that manage inventory, orders, and warehouse logistics, Ascent Solutions’ turnkey applications available on AppExchange are a great way to accelerate digital transformation. It’s pretty easy for employees to see a correlation between better inventory management and happier customers. This makes change management and technology implementation much more straightforward. Here’s a diagram that illustrates Operations 360:
Benefits of Cloud ERP
- Single Source of Truth. A single cloud ERP + CRM system connects the front office with the back office for increased visibility into supply chain bottlenecks and potential shipping/fulfillment issues for customer orders.
- Real Time Visibility. The ability to quickly locate inventory is critical for successful reverse logistics. Cloud technology enables companies to track serialized and non-serialized products down to the truck and palette locations.
- Data Driven Customer Support. Customer service reps (CSRs) are also able to see inventory location and bottlenecks in real time.
