TEC Releases 2016 Cloud ERP Buyer's Guide for Manufacturing

New guide covers the current landscape, recent developments, top products, and reasons for manufacturing companies to make the switch, Technology Evaluation Centers reports

Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC), announced the release of its 2016 Cloud ERP Buyer's Guide for Manufacturing. Available now to those with a free TEC subscription, the new guide details the latest developments in and current status of cloud-based enterprise resource planning systems, with a special focus on implications for companies involved in manufacturing. Even with manufacturing-centered companies having lagged behind those in a number of other industries in terms of cloud-based ERP adoption, the TEC report details a range of offerings that are ripe for productive use by small- and medium-sized businesses, in addition to those of enterprise scale. Concisely delivering the benefit of TEC's proven, widely relied-upon expertise to readers, the new guide will be of great interest to many in the manufacturing industry.

"As with so many other kinds of software, enterprise resource planning is moving quickly to the cloud," said TEC Director of Selection Services Michael Thaw, "That entails some real advantages for manufacturing companies poised to make the leap, and the transition can be a lot easier than some would expect. We think our Senior ERP Analyst Aleksey Osintsev and other experts have done an excellent job of creating a guide that readers can put to good use. The new report is free to those who sign up for a TEC account at our website or have one already, so we hope that many will benefit from this important study."

Enterprise resource planning systems are sophisticated software suites that centralize a diverse array of business-related data. Often covering everything from product development and manufacturing to marketing, sales, and shipping processes, these comprehensive systems have traditionally been packaged as software installed and maintained by licensees.

In recent years, however, ERP software has increasingly become available in software-as-a-service form that leaves the responsibility for hosting and updating with the companies that create it. The new TEC 2016 Cloud ERP Buyer's Guide for Manufacturing examines the existing options of this kind in light of how they can benefit companies with a focus on that activity. Created by one of the leading TEC experts on the subject with input from a range of other domain experts, the new guide covers everything from the lay of the current cloud-based ERP landscape to issues like the now-thawing historical reluctance of some manufacturing companies to make the switch.

The brand new 2016 Buyer's Guide is the most comprehensive and informative of its kind, upholding TEC's longstanding reputation for providing useful, actionable software selection advice. The new guide is available now at the TEC website, with a simple, free account registration granting access. Visitors there will also find a rich selection of equally valuable resources of other kinds.
