SAP Business One Cloud ERP Options to Fit You and Your Business

Choosing the Right ERP Delivery Model

When choosing your best ERP solution, the delivery model is just as important as the system itself. There’s no ‘one size fits all’ solution – the deployment model that’s right for one company may not be the best fit for another. That’s why we work with you to select the option that best fits your business based on your workflows and how much control you want over your data.

On-premise

Your SAP Business One system is installed and maintained locally, at your business location. Your users access the system on your local network.

Private ERP Cloud Hosting

We host and maintain your SAP Business One system in our Tier 3 datacenter. Your users access the system through a remote app, with enhanced security if desired.

Why Choose SAP Business One Private Cloud? Peace of Mind.

Some companies think it’s easier and more cost-effective to host their ERP system on-premise, using their own servers. But there’s a lot more to consider than just hardware. You need a sophisticated IT team that’s well-versed in ERP to properly maintain the database and apply proper security. And perhaps most importantly, you need a comprehensive backup and disaster recovery plan that’s strictly followed to ensure you’re covered in the event of a system failure. We’re talking about a mission-critical system that will run your entire business. Can you risk downtime – or even worse, lost data?

This is why so many of our customers choose our SAP Business One cloud ERP hosting service. As the first and longest-standing Canadian provider of private cloud hosting for SAP Business One, we offer a level of infrastructure and redundancy that simply isn’t possible on your own.

Fully Managed ERP Infrastructure

We host your SAP Business One system in our own Tier 3 datacenter or on Amazon Web Services (AWS), based on your business requirements. Users access your SAP Business One system using secure, high-speed internet connections and industry-standard Microsoft Remote Desktop technologies.

Our team handles all server maintenance and 24/7 monitoring. We can identify any problems and re-allocate server resources in real-time to proactively address performance issues. And you'll benefit from the efficiency of working with one provider for both your ERP system and server.

Complete Disaster Recovery

Our strict recovery protocols include both on-site and off-site backup schemes to minimize data loss. In the event of a failure, we can restore your database to a point in time over the previous 21 days, with backups taken every 15 minutes. Your database and other critical files are always backed up to a second geographical location for added redundancy. In the event of a failure, we aim to have you back up in running in a matter of hours to limit the impact to your business.

Best Practice Optimization

Our private cloud ERP hosting service is optimized to meet and exceed recommended specifications for SAP Business One and its component system. With continuous monitoring, our team performs back-end adjustments, like load balancing, to ensure peak system performance and optimize your user experience. Access to our Help Desk gives you ongoing support and quick issue resolution.

Safe Harbour Approach

If you select our SAP Business One cloud service, you will own a virtual copy of your server (subject to licensing requirements) needed to deliver the service. This gives you options for the future. You have the flexibility to move your system to an alternative datacenter or bring the system on-premise, with minimal impact. Where required, we have the ability to host your system entirely within Canada to ensure data is not subject to the U.S. Patriot Act.

What Our Customers Say

Working with ProjectLine has been amazing for us. They helped us bring all of our teams together quite quickly, kept things very simple for us and helped us onboard the system in bite-size pieces so it’s actually felt manageable.

Not sure which ERP hosting model is right for you?

When considering a new ERP solution, you need to consider factors beyond the technology – most importantly, your business workflows and how much control you want over your data.  Ask yourself these questions to understand your needs more clearly.

What do your users need? Think about more than just the functionality your teams need. Also consider the way they consume data and interact with the system. What’s the user role? What kind of processing power do they need to work effectively?

How much flexibility do you need? Take a quick inventory of the workflows across your business. How many fall into the ‘unique’ category and may require additional configuration or integration with other systems? Are these mission critical processes? Is there opportunity to adjust the workflow to use standard functionality?

How can you get your data, in what format and at what cost? First, consider what your reporting needs are, including whether you have other systems that feed data into your ERP for reporting and analytics. Second, think long-term. If you ever decide to migrate to a new ERP system – or a new hosting provider – how easy will it be to get your data and how much will it cost?

Where is your data located? Does it matter for your business? Depending on your line of business, you may have requirements to maintain your data within Canada. This may or may not be possible with certain cloud solutions, depending where their datacenters are located.
