Global Shop Solutions ERP Deployment

Global Shop Solutions can be deployed both in the Cloud or as an On-Premise ERP:

Global Shop Solutions Cloud ERP

Global Shop Solutions has two flavours of Cloud ERP deployment:

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)

Fully managed and delivered by Global Shop Solutions

Managed Services

On-Premise Global Shop ERP licensing, managed by Global Shop Solutions.

When we work with fast growing, agile manufacturing companies, Cloud ERP is often the best choice as it can provide lower overheads and more agility, with less maintenance and IT headaches.

Global Shop Solutions On-Premise ERP

Global Shop Solutions can also be purchased as a traditional On-Premise, perpetual license. 

In our experience at ERP Research, this can be the best option for companies that already have a well established IT operations team that is capable of performing backups, updates and also a great option for companies that want to maintain tight control over their data. It can also be the cheaper option if you have recently invested in IT hardware.
