Cloud ERP is Software as a Service (SaaS) that allows users to access Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, other applications, infrastructure and data storage, over the Internet. Cloud ERP generally has much lower upfront costs because computing resources are leased by the month rather than purchased outright and maintained on premises. Cloud ERP also gives companies access to their business-critical applications at any time from any location.
