The void is widening between legacy Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and cloud ERP as traditional onpremise tools are shifting toward delivery of applications over the Internet. The cost savings resulting from the increased productivity and efficiency that characterize a move to web-based business applications drive the growth for ERP in the cloud. iBE.net helps streamline the costs incurred in a traditional ERP solution through their ‘Integrated Business Environment’ approach. They allow professional service companies to manage their core projects as well as related processes, thus creating an efficient database tool. “Modern cloud-based applications are easy-to-use but are point solutions which ultimately lead to the deployment of numerous applications,” says Richard Minney, Founder and CEO, iBE.net.
“The iBE approach, with its single app, provides flexibility and broad out-of-thebox functionality across industries.” It enhances core processes like billable time and internal activities, recovering lost revenue, controlling expenses, sick leave, and other absences. The company facilitates updating of employee profiles by staff thus saving time and cost for the HR department. It helps to create dashboards for project and client profitability to get new insights into the business, and share information with the clients’ consultants and customers in real-time. iBE.net also delivers end-to-end support for projects like business acquisition to billing, simplified by pre-delivered connections to Quickbooks, SAP, SalesForce and ADP. iBE’s approach allows clients to access their data instantaneously, all of this under a blanket of security delivered by Amazon’s secure cloud.

The days to come will witness the development of iBE.net’s product module. Currently, iBE.net is venturing into the domains of maintenance, asset management and tracking, purchasing, and e-commerce. “We want to build a comprehensive application for our clients with the potentiality to run the whole business, and unquestionably the facets of the business they want to,” ends Minney.
