7th October 2013, London: Brady plc (BRY.L), the leading global supplier of trading, risk management and settlement solutions to the agricultural, metals, recycling, energy and softs sectors, announced today that its flagship recycling solutions, CRES™ and IMPACT™ are now available in a Cloud offering.
For over 30 years Brady has been providing the Business solutions to many of the leading Recyclers and Steel Mills in the world. Up until now, our clients had to secure and maintain the servers and infrastructure required to support these systems. Due to the nature of our clients’ operations the highest levels of operational performance, control and availability are critical. In most cases this made on premise implementations the only realistic option to satisfy these requirements. Now Brady’s dedicated Cloud Services offer an alternative choice with many additional benefits.
Brady’s dedicated Cloud Services provide the highest levels of availability through n+1 redundancy and fully optimised storage across the solution. This provides the perfect environment for enterprise wide and mission critical solutions. Due to the scalability of our cloud environment, it is easy to add more resource as demand increases. For traditional on-premise installations these changes may result in a requirement to re-architect the entire infrastructure to accommodate growth. These circumstances can be very costly. With the Cloud solution additional costs for scaling up or out are incremental. This flexibility allows the client to control IT costs and minimise system upgrade disruptions, with added reassurance that our Cloud Services are backed and managed by Brady experts, who have a wealth of domain and system expertise.
The Cloud solution isn’t necessarily only an option for new clients. As our current clients face upgrading or replacing aging equipment, moving to the Brady Cloud solution in many cases may provide a compelling alternative.
Another benefit to moving our applications to a Cloud solution is our ability to offer the CRES™ system to organisations that previously were too small, either in terms of the financial outlay requirements or relative to their system requirements. Now prospective clients, with as few as three locations, can take advantage of the system’s capabilities and benefits previously only available to their much larger industry peers.
Today organizations are constantly looking for ways to reduce or control cost while maintaining levels of quality and service. For steel mills, raw material costs represent well over 50% of the cost of their finished products. By automating many aspects of the planning, procuring, receiving, managing inventories, consuming, accounting and supplier relationships, IMPACT™ provides numerous opportunities to reduce costs and improve efficiencies.
For Brady’s IMPACT™ clients, we offer an optional rental licence model. This option allows organisations to effectively opt to “pay as you go”, whilst immediately realising the cost savings and inherent operational efficiencies provided by the product.
For organizations that prefer not to invest in and maintain IT infrastructure, the Brady Cloud solution provides a compelling alternative to traditional on-site system installations.
