ERP Hosting in the Cloud

You have enough to focus on – serving your customers, innovating in your field and your offerings, and ultimately growing your business. Let us help you lighten the load.

As experts with over 30 years experience with Microsoft Dynamics, Sage and SysPro ERP and CRM solutions, we know how critical the success of your initial ERP implementation and its ongoing optimization are to meeting your business objectives. We also know how resource-intensive ERP implementations and upgrades are. The people, capital, technology and time investments can quickly overwhelm budgets and initiatives and threaten to derail the success of your project.

By hosting your ERP system in the cloud, you very quickly gain an edge with increased mobility, productivity and reduced costs. You also gain an extension to your IT team, affordable and quick access to flexible and scalable hardware, and peace of mind in knowing that your data is securely backed up and protected against threats.

As a Microsoft CSP (Cloud Solution Provider) and premier provider of Microsoft Azure, we are no newbie to the cloud. We’re your strategic partner in the cloud – working proactively with clients to ensure that we continuously provide additional value.

By hosting your Dynamics, Sage or SysPro ERP system with Socius as your partner in both ERP and Cloud, we become more deeply invested in your success. And your success is our success.

Are you ready for the future?

The longer you own and use an ERP system, and the more your business grows, the more you need the ability to quickly scale to meet system and business expansions. Deploying ERP in the cloud is an easy and reliable way to address these needs.

Our Cloud Deployment Options

As your One Cloud hosting provider, we still offer the power of choice. Choose between a public cloud option with the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, a Socius Private Cloud option and a hybrid option based on what works best for your business.

Public Cloud - Microsoft Azure

Leverage Azure’s flexible cloud platform that enables you to quickly build, deploy, and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed data centers.

Socius Private Cloud

Be confident your data is secure and compliant in the Socius’ Expedient data center – co-located inside Expedient data center.

Hybrid Cloud

If you aren’t ready to go ‘all-in’ to the cloud, you have the flexibility to move some apps to the cloud and keep others on your on-site servers.

Implementation Options to Suit Your Needs

Whether you own your ERP license outright and are looking to reduce the cost and hassle of maintaining hardware or if you’re looking for a subscription-based ERP solution in the cloud, we’ve got your back.
