Flexible scalability provides solid support for growth

Loads of on-premises hardware can easily become a heavy weight that can keep a company from moving forward, especially if there are multiple pieced-together legacy systems to contend with. B&M had already been using AMCS Enterprise Management on-premises for several years prior to their decision to upgrade and migrate to the cloud, so the only issue was whether to invest in more software to accommodate the continued growth of the business.

We recently expanded our already large service area with two new locations, and we are looking toward more growth on the horizon. It was time for us to think about moving to a solution that would be easier, cheaper, and faster to scale than investing in more hardware.” A reliable cloud-based solution provides much more flexibility and easy scalability, and that makes it a solid foundation for a business that is expanding and evolving

AMCS Cloud-based Platform provided the latest, most advanced solutions

The company’s recent ERP system upgrade from an on-premises solution to the AMCS Cloud-based Platform for their enterprise system is exactly the kind of technological solution that will allow them to meet their customers’ needs in the most efficient way possible as the company continues to grow.

Alleviating the need to continue investing in more hardware was a big factor for B&M, but more importantly, moving to the AMCS Cloud-based Platform also provided them with the latest, most advanced solutions to improve the efficiency of their workflows. This positive impact on efficiency means a significant reduction in the time it takes to complete mundane tasks, which frees up IT-personnel to work on more value-adding activities.

Advantages of cloud-based versus on-premises

B&M’s decision to migrate their enterprise system was based on two key factors: one, upgrading the system to include the latest functionality to add more efficiency to their expanding workflows, and two, increasing the flexibility to make it more future proof. The AMCS Cloud-based Platform provided the answer to both these things.

According to Andrew Waland, IT Manager for B&M, migrating the enterprise system to the cloud provides them with a variety of advantages over working with multiple servers on site:

Benefits of a Cloud-based Platform

  • Flexible scalability
  • No need for (continued) investing in hardware
  • Continuous upgrades to the latest cutting-edge software functionality
  • Reliable solutions for business continuity and disaster recovery
  • Quick access to identical parallel environments for testing
  • Faster support and problem resolution
