Why move to the cloud? HomCo's CFO explains

Since it’s a cloud-based system, you don’t have a lot of initial set-up costs. And my monthly maintenance charges are at least $100 less than what I was paying before we switched.


Our management team is no longer handcuffed to our desks. Now that we’re cloud-based, we can do our work anytime, from anywhere. I have the ability to go home, eat dinner with my family, and then if I need to do something, I can tap in at home.


Our inventory is becoming better because of RockSolid MAX. Our tracking and receiving are better because we can access the system from anywhere through the cloud, I’m spending less time at the store.


Before we moved to the cloud, I would always have to go in early or stay late to do software updates and other maintenance. But now that’s a thing of the past.


Moving to the cloud has not only freed up valuable time to focus on more productive areas, but also given us a greater comfort level with backups and data security. And being able to access the system from anywhere where there’s a web browser is also a big plus.


I knew from the day we started looking for software that we wanted a cloud-based system. I really liked the idea that they would be taking care of our data and we would not have to manage a server and deal with software updates and daily back-ups.


Not only do we have more time to spend on what’s really important for the business, but now we can be confident that we’re protected against ransomware attacks, spyware, viruses, and all the other online threats out there.


Before Spruce, the Epicor program was hosted on a server and we had to do all of our own backups and upgrades. When we switched to Spruce, we no longer had to take care of maintenance, backups, and security. That freed up valuable time to spend in more productive areas.
