Cloud ERP Failover Protection
- The Big Risk Cloud ERP Buyers Rarely Notice
What if your Cloud ERP vendor fails? The Cloud ERP industry makes effectively no provisions for ERP buyers in the event the Cloud ERP suddenly ceases operations. Usually the last people to know about the potential collapse are current customers—only learning about the matter after it's largely happened.
In stark contrast, the failure of a seller of perpetual ERP licenses is manageable for ERP buyers, as they owned local licenses and hardware. They could continue to operate while they planned a migration at some point. However, with Cloud ERP this option is completely removed with the typical deal, and therefore the huge risk.

Long term ERP license costs were initially very difficult to calculate. Working with SoftSelect we were able to insist on a predicable ERP license fee approach and achieve much lower initial and ongoing license fee costs.
Negotiating ERP costs is complicated and the ERP software vendors take advantage of the buyer’s lack of experience. SoftSelect’s experience and influence helped us level the playing field. We clearly saved money and lowered our long term risk.
SoftSelect was a great partner throughout the process of choosing an ERP solution. They helped us control the terms throughout the ERP buying process, and we achieved impressive results in reduced ERP license fees. Having an experienced partner like SoftSelect, helped us negotiate for the products we need and set our expectations for the process of implementing these solutions.
