Understanding that, we would like to clarify 3 misconceptions on Cloud ERP Software that are thought to restrain businesses from vital digital transformation.

Not all cloud ERP software is priced on a subscription basis.

It is a common school of thought that on-premise ERP system is quoted as a one-time perpetual license fee, while cloud ERP system is priced under a monthly or annual subscription.
