Cloud-Based ERP Software
Simply put, Cloud computing is the full-range delivery of computing services over the internet. Servers, storage, databases, software, and analytics in the Cloud environment result in flexible resources, remote access, and economies of scale. Prior to the Cloud, municipal customers accessed applications from software downloaded on a physical server in their building. Cloud computing offers access to web-based applications through the internet, allowing users to work at any time and from any location.
BS&A’s Cloud-Based ERP software was designed from the ground up to address the challenges of remote work, 24 hour availability, and ease of use. We have completely rewritten our software to take advantage of web-based technology designed for use in Microsoft Azure data centers. This allows you to focus on providing services to your community, rather than relying on I.T. administration.
Rapid, Hassle-free Updates
BS&A manages all Cloud-Based ERP system updates on an ongoing basis. This allows you to keep up with the evolving needs of your municipality, and ensures that you are using the most up-to-date technology and functionality. With BS&A’s Cloud-Based ERP, updates take a minimal amount of time, and usually occur during off hours to prevent business disruptions.
Software as a Service
BS&A’s Cloud-Based ERP is Software as a Service (SaaS). A single version of our ERP software and its associated infrastructure services multiple municipalities. However, while each municipality uses the same software and is hosted on the same Microsoft servers, each organization has its own separate SQL database, and is inaccessible to others. BS&A’s product is a true Cloud-Based ERP system.
BS&A’s Cloud-Based ERP users can access business information in real time, from anywhere, and on any device. This ensures staff members across the municipality are working with the same data no matter the location, and can make decisions faster and more confidently.
Without the challenges of adding more servers for more users, BS&A’s Cloud-Based ERP solution makes scaling your municipality easier. As your municipality grows, our Cloud-Based ERP grows as well.
Security, Compliance, and Disaster Recovery
In partnership with Microsoft Azure and Microsoft data centers, BS&A’s Cloud-Based ERP offers industry-leading security and compliance for our municipal customers.
Storage Resilience and Access
If on-premises hardware fails, our municipal customers could spend a considerable amount of time and money transferring data to a newly-purchased storage system. With BS&A’s Cloud-Based ERP, data is housed in Microsoft data centers, where these tasks are automatically managed.
