Enprise offers up solution for smart paths to cloud

Enprise Solutions has launched a new offering designed to help businesses chart the smartest path to the cloud.

The business software company says the new offering, Enprise Cloud Path, creates an optimal cloud roadmap for individual businesses, after weighing the costs and benefits for the specific business.

Elliot Cooper, Enprise Group chief executive, says while moving to the cloud has big benefits, it also has its risks and businesses need help deciding when and how to move.

“Businesses need to be smart to reap the maximum gain for minimum spend,” Cooper notes.

Enprise is a leading trans-Tasman provider of solutions based on the MYOB EXO and MYOB Advanced software platforms and says all of the software it sells – which include Microsoft CRM, Halo business intelligence, Valogix inventory forecasing along with manufcaturing, POS, e-comerce applications, job costing and EDI solutions – can be delivered in the cloud.

Existing customisations can also be transferred into the cloud.

Cooper says one of the biggest risks with cloud is multiple suppliers all pointing the finger at each other when things don’t work as advertised.

“Enprise takes responsibility for making sure ‘everything works’ in the Enprise-managed cloud. If there’s a problem, we fix it,” he says. 

Enprise’s offering is already being used by specialist ERP provider Co-SYS to execute cloud transitions for its own customers.

The two companies signed a partnership agreement which extends the Enprise Cloud Path service to Co-SYS customers, following a successful pilot project.

 Geoff Roberts, Co-SYS director says the new partnership gives Co-SYS customers fresh options to ‘future proof’ their business systems.

“Our customers can keep using their server-based products for as long as it suits them, then move to the cloud when they’re ready, with no loss of service or support,”Roberts says.

Fellow Co-SYS Director Steve Jubber says some customers are ready to go to the cloud now, some are close and some don’t ever wish to go there.

“Our new partnership with Enprise increases our ability to give customers whatever works best,” Jubber says.
