By the virtue of pandemic forced changes, enterprises around the globe are now adopting the digital transformation way quicker than expected. Following the same, companies are now moving their Enterprise Resource Planning(ERP) softwares to the cloud. The adoption of the cloud based ERP system has multiple advantages of which the prominent ones are: ability to add a new added security layer to the ERP and reduction in the long term hardware purchase & maintenance cost. Along with this, cloud ERP also offers a great flexibility, thus increasing the organization’s agility and bringing down the operational costs.
While it is true that getting ERP to the cloud is advantageous, it has a silver lining. This whole process could be complex and time consuming if not handled by any experienced professional. This is where new age companies like gotomyerp come into picture, who make this process of getting ERP to the cloud easier.
Robert Eppele, Co-Founder of gotomyerp and a strategic entrepreneur, has created multiple businesses over 20 years in various industries like Engineering, Marketing and Technology. Also, he has served 3 years with Ernst & Young, Kenneth Leventhal CPAs as Senior Auditor and Technology Consultant. Today with CEO Views, he shares his journey as an entrepreneur and how gotomyerp evolved to a level that it is today.
INCEPTION AND TRANSFORMATION
Recalling the initial days of gotomyerp Robert Eppele says, we started this business in 2005 as most of the consulting companies do- sell solutions, implement, consult and support. We had grown well and in the same year we joined Intuit’s journey to becoming a leading ERP solution. Sometime in 2007 the leadership of gotomyerp was invited to a highly secretive project with IBM and Intuit which was intended to put QuickBooks in an on-premises “cloud server”. The initiative was called “IBM Smart Business”’ and our executive team was invited to see the future firsthand. At that moment, we knew what we had to do. Our experience led us to Amazon Web Services (AWS) in 2007 and since then, our entire fleet has operated exceptionally well. Today, we operate and care for a diverse group of customers who selected us because of our reputation for delivering a quality of service above all others.
CLOUD ERP: ROADBLOCKS AND SOLUTIONS
“We remove uncertainty and provide consistency”
Nearly all our customers didn’t know what to expect when they started with other “providers”. The uninspiring support, little to no help, service outages, drops and frustrations. Then they realize – they are no longer “good-enough” and the low price that enticed them before isn’t worth the headaches today.
Gotomyerp is an experienced hosting provider who offers a cloud-based platform for Quickbooks and Sage. Our flexible software allows easy access to all your information among all of your team members.
Explaining more on this Robert Eppele, Co-Founder of gotomyerp says, an incredible hosting service that extends the longevity of your investment of QuickBooks, Sage, MS Dynamics, and other critical systems you depend on.

Since then, our service has matured to the most resilient solution in the industry.When asked, we can offer system selection and implementation services along with customized solutions that fit just about any business need.

By deploying in a decentralized manner, a firm can instantaneously expand and leverage talent from anywhere.
Speaking about the reliability of gotomyerp services Robert Eppele says, our process is engineered to be easy. We handle nearly all the steps needed to transition you to the cloud with the assistance of their consultant or ours. We coordinate the process for an exact sequence of events that guarantees day success.
Our customers depend on us to access their system every minute of every day. To that end along with all the security that AWS provides, we have taken the extra effort to prove to our customers that we are audited as a service provider. To ensure the security of the data, we encourage all prospective customers to ask the “hosting provider” who’s SOC documents are being provided or relied on? Is it really theirs or their 3rd party colocation services?
