Have you thought about using a cloud-based ERP software system to help your overall B2B strategy? If the answer is yes, this article is the perfect read for you!
First, let’s define what a cloud-based ERP software system is.
A cloud-based ERP software system is a system of enterprise resource planning software and tools that are hosted and managed offsite in the cloud by your vendor. In contrast, traditional ERP software systems are locally based.
Cloud-based ERP software systems can be used for your accounting, procurement, project management, risk management and compliance, sales, and fulfillment needs. Such a system lets you manage all your business operations in one central location without paying for multiple applications and worrying about data duplication.
Compared to traditional ERP systems, a cloud-based ERP software also deploys automatic updates so you don’t need to worry about falling behind on the latest trends. This is one of the great advantages of using a cloud-based ERP software and lets you build a competitive advantage as your market continues to grow.
Like many other cloud-based ERP software systems, Blastramp helps brands bridge the gap and ensure your B2B strategy has no cracks in it.
Repetitive manual tasks can cause delays in shipments, lose track of inventory, and ultimately overwork employees. Blastramp maximizes your efficiency with easy integrations with other organizations — like the ones listed below — allowing you to centralize your business with just one software system.
Here’s a list of all our integrations:
Founded in 2010, JOOR is the world’s largest wholesale platform and data exchange for fashion, beauty and home. They connect over 12,500 brands with 300,000 retailers across 144 countries every day.
Akshay Bhasin, Integrations & Data Product Manager at Joor had this to say about how our two software's integrate to help out brands:
“It's been great working with the Blast Ramp team regarding the JOOR integration that they've developed. It's evident that they're willing to continually innovate alongside JOOR, and at times are even willing to go the extra mile to develop enhancements to this integration, enabling the clients who use it to make the most use of it.”
NuORDER is another integration offered on our cloud-based ERP software system. NuORDER is a leading B2B e-commerce platform that helps brands deliver a seamless, more collaborative wholesale process, where buyers can browse products, plan assortments and make smarter buys in real-time.
Here’s what Shawn Gatlin from NuORDER had to say about our cloud-based ERP software system and how you can use it for your B2B strategy:
“I believe we have made great progress ... We have also had the opportunity to collaborate with Gwen directly, a member of the Blastramp team, which has proved extremely successful in aligning the communication of the NuOrder and Blastramp system. Moving forward, we will continue to loop in Blastramp contacts to ensure cohesion in all integration projects.”
You can also integrate an accounting system like Quickbooks to your cloud-based ERP software system. QuickBooks is an accounting software package developed and marketed by Intuit. QuickBooks products are geared mainly toward small and medium-sized businesses and offer on-premises accounting applications as well as cloud-based versions that accept business payments, manage and pay bills, and payroll functions.
Historically speaking, ERP software systems were monolithic and worked separately from other systems with no integration at all. This meant that they weren’t easily customizable and oftentimes took a lot of resources to update.
However, today’s cloud-based ERP software systems are much more advanced and make your day-to-day business processes much easier to complete.
Cloud-based ERP software systems allow you to essentially all of your business needs in one system. As mentioned above, cloud-based ERP software systems can be used to run your accounting, procurement, project management, risk management and compliance, sales, and fulfillment needs all in one place.
If you’re a brand that uses a third-party logistics provider (3PL), this means that your cloud-based ERP software system can communicate back and forth with it. A 3PL company can provide services such as transportation, warehousing, picking and packing, inventory forecasting, order fulfillment, packaging, freight forwarding, and much more. All of these different business processes can be managed through a cloud-based ERP software system.
With a cloud-based ERP software system, you have data coming in from numerous departments into one central software system. When a cloud-based ERP software system is set up correctly, data from departments such as accounting, manufacturing, supply chain, sales and human resources (HR) feed into one central location.
Unlike traditional ERP systems, cloud-based ERP software systems let your team access data in real-time from any device. Once you can see all the data in your cloud-based ERP software, your team can recommend any improvements that are needed, map future scenarios for you and your customers, and implement better strategies based on comprehensive. A cloud-based ERP software system with these capabilities helps your team become more efficient and frees up valuable time to work on core business needs.
Comprehensive reporting is an important tool for many businesses. It encourages your business to think in an integrated way and fosters more collaboration amongst colleagues.
