Tech Challenges for SMEs – License Agreements

Stuck in perpetual license agreements? Need to renew your software licence next year?

Legacy business management systems and ERP software can become expensive and may need replacing or upgrading sooner than anticipated to counteract security vulnerabilities and slow performance.

The solution is switching to more affordable and efficient cloud-based and subscription-based services. The licensing model per user per month is gaining more popularity for both large enterprises and small businesses who need more flexibility and want to pay only for the services they use.

For small businesses who are generally more agile, a monthly commitment is preferable to a multi-year engagement for software license agreements. It enables your company to pay only for the resources and applications you need, saving costs.

Cloud solutions generally require a monthly license fee payable for the user access, storage, security and other applications within the cloud environment. Employees can access files and data from anywhere, at any time, on any device connected to the application.

The subscription plan covers multiple devices and access to specific applications based on the company’s unique requirements. Your business can easily upscale or downscale the license agreement levels if needed. There is no need to be tied down to high upfront investments or yearly contracts, as is the case with on-premises ERP solutions.

Subscription-based solutions such as Office 365 and Dynamics 365 provide the performance expected from traditional on-premises business management software with the added benefits of cloud technology – mobility, sharing and collaboration – at an affordable price.
