“Why should we choose Oracle ERP Cloud for our business?”  

We frequently hear this question as companies evaluate which ERP solution would best suit their needs. 

To help answer that and other common questions, TrustRadius surveyed existing Oracle ERP customers and created a report to help you make an informed decision. Here are a few of the most often asked questions and the answers these customers provided.

Why did you decide to commit to Oracle ERP Cloud over other offerings?

1. Cloud suite. As they were looking to make the transition from on-premise solutions, customers said that Oracle was a leader among cloud ERP suites. They specifically called out how the suite is specifically built for the cloud, as well as how it helps them reduce overall infrastructure costs.

2. Breadth of product features. Customers frequently choose Oracle ERP Cloud due to its broad feature set. They regularly point to the suite’s comprehensiveness and its comparative superiority for specific features, such as control over financing needs and global scalability.

3. Integrations with other Oracle products. Customers also choose the suite because it’s easy to integrate with other products in the Oracle ecosystem—including native integration across the Oracle Cloud, from HR to supply chain to customer experience. The ability to smoothly interface with the rest of their technology stacks helps break down information silos and increase process efficiency across their organizations.

4. Reduced IT costs from transitioning to the cloud. Customers in all company sizes said that the suite was a critical part of helping them significantly reduce IT costs after they transitioned from an on-premise to a cloud ERP system. The savings included reduced IT maintenance, decreased fees, and freed up labor resources.

One large hospital and health care company said they’ll be able to eliminate 9 financial tools, which will streamline their processes.
