Touchstone FMS Business Unit HeadMore
For anyone that is looking to change their Financial Management System there is a plethora of software to choose from, but which one is right for your business?
Then you have the burning issues of SaaS vs Perpetual Licence and Cloud vs On Premise, the decisions are no longer as simple as they once used to be.
If we believe everything we read according to the industry soothsayers, the only way to go is ERP in the Cloud with wall to wall functionality, with the FMS coming as a natural part of the solution. However on closer analysis many of the popular ERP solutions, particularly those that have been “born in the cloud” for SME’s / SMB’s lack industrial strength FMS functionality.
There are certain sectors and industries that would gain little benefit from the implementation of a general ERP solution; In some instances it could even be a retrograde step. A prime example is the UK Financial Services sector, many businesses will have specialist front of house systems such as underwriting, broking, FX management, investment and asset management etc. which integrate through to the FMS. I doubt there is any ERP system (Cloud or On Premise) in the market today that can offer in one system the total functionality that is contained in these best of breed solutions.
What is needed in such instances is an industrial strength FMS at the heart of the business systems landscape. For the Financial Services Sector in particular there is no better than Infor SunSystems; with its long pedigree and superior functionality it is the FMS solution of choice.
