Why host business application software?
Hosting of enterprise software applications offers many benefits to small-to-medium sized businesses.
Lower Hardware Costs – Since the hardware hosting hardware is owned and maintained by The ERP Group, customers avoid the high costs of purchasing, configuring, maintaining and eventually upgrading expensive server hardware and virtualization technology.
Reduced Infrastructure Costs – Customers are only responsible for providing and maintaining Internet access for workers to allow connection to the hosted applications.
Accessibility – Users can work from anywhere. They simply need to have an Internet connection, log in to the hosting server remotely, and are immediately connected to the application software and data.
Data Security - Your data resides in a secure data center which has redundancy in case of disaster. Backups of the virtual machine hosting you applications and data are made nightly and stored securely.
Portability and Flexibility – Should you decide at some point to bring your application and data back in-house, you retain the flexibility to do so with little interruption of operations. The use of virtualization technology makes it possible to quickly move your virtual server to your own physical hardware.
