Cloud-computing allows businesses to scale inventory management software to their exact needs. You only have to pay for what you use. Furthermore, small and medium-sized businesses do not need to purchase costly hardware and software to operate their inventory management. The software is all on the Internet. Updates to the software and issues with the servers are all aspects of having inventory management software, but with cloud solutions these responsibilities fall on the service provider. You do not need to hire a team of IT professionals to maintain your inventory management software and hardware. This allows businesses to dedicate the costs that would have been spent on IT to their core objectives as a business. Another way businesses save money on the cloud versus the desktop solution is in the amount of time it takes to deploy the software. Cloud software solutions deploy quickly and for a lower upfront cost than standard desktop software. One extra benefit on top of all of the savings is that with cloud services it is easier to keep track of how much you are spending on your inventory management solution. Typically, you will pay a monthly fee or just one (discounted) annual fee. Backstore even has the same price regardless of number of users
or features used.
