10 reasons to choose hosted applications:
1. Your Own Team of Experts
When you turn to a hosted applications solution it’s as though you suddenly have an entire staff of experts working for you—serving as an extension of your IT department and allowing your in-house team to focus on the other critical IT assignments.
2. Cutting-Edge Technology
Since hosted apps providers focus on their specific area of expertise, they can stay on top of the latest advances in their industry. They also have the resources to implement and maintain a variety of technologies to deliver the best in hosted applications.
3. Reliable Access
Hosted application providers are committed to providing a reliable uptime. They know that if servers go down, your productivity is down. That is why we offer you exceptional customer service.
4. No Setup or Maintenance
When you turn to a hosted apps solution, you immediately have a fully equipped, top-of-the-line system that will be continually updated and maintained. This saves you thousands of dollars in server hardware, software, upgrades, and the expertise to run it all.
5. Seamless Scalability
When your company grows, your infrastructure must also grow. Hosting providers have extensive hardware and software resources and they can scale easily. Cloud hosting, in particular, is especially designed for scalability—since you use only the infrastructure resources you need.
6. Automatic Backups & Easy Data Recovery
Hosted application providers know that you have entrusted them with your valuable data—so they have the systems and resources to implement backup and data replication.
7. Security During Storage & Transmission
Hosted services integrate extensive security measures to help protect your data from physical threats – such as theft, overheating, power outages, and fire.
8. Automatic Software Upgrades
When you choose hosted apps, you don’t need to worry about downloading and installing server software upgrades or security patches. Perhaps more importantly, you don’t have to worry about keeping email virus and spam protection systems current on email servers.
9. Data Access Anywhere
With hosted applications, you benefit from having a wide range of data access options. This flexibility helps your employees to be more productive, compared to employees who are limited to using only a specific computer or specific software.
10. Better Teamwork
With workers being more dispersed than ever, gone are the days where you can get by with passing a paper around the office to get input. Collaboration apps like SharePoint make it possible for multiple people to work from the same file, making teamwork easier and more effective.
