Network Assistance’s hosted solutions allow you to benefit from updated software without the prohibitive initial costs and inconvenience of upgrading.
Hosted applications, also referred to as Software as a Service (SaaS), offer a range of benefits and improvements over the traditional approach of licensing. For many organisations, having software which can be accessed on demand has huge benefits – not least the fact that unnecessary licenses no longer need to be purchased (and tied to specific computers).
When you choose Network Assistance to provide a hosted service, we physically collect the data from your servers and transfer it to the virtual environment housed within our local datacentre. This ensures a fast, personal and fully secure service which is extremely rare in the industry.
Network Assistance offer a fully managed and completely hassle-free approach to cloud computing which means that applications can be delivered in a virtual environment. When you store your data and applications in Network Assistance’s datacentre, you can completely forget about hassle of having your own hardware and software to worry about – and backups become a thing of the past.
When Network Assistance host your applications and data, they are deployed through the cloud to give your users 24/7 access from anywhere in the world. Of course, this is provided through a superfast connection which is 100% secure and extremely reliable.
Business applications of all types can be deployed into the Network Assistance cloud, whether these are third party or bespoke applications.
Hosted applications also offer tremendous flexibility – e.g. new employees can easily be added to the system within minutes and at minimal cost. Likewise, any departures can be quickly and securely removed, often with the ongoing monthly costs reducing as well.
A major factor in hosted application is the lower costs. Traditional software, and the associated hardware needed to run it, are expensive and must upon installation. Within a hosted environment, there is no capital outlay at all and instead a small monthly fee with be paid (which in itself has tax advantages).
The delivery of Software as a Service generally provides a superior and more reliable solution for organisations with remote workers.
Hosted applications also ensure that a disaster recovery system is in place should your offices become unusable. As hosted applications are not dependent on your internal infrastructure, in the event that these are affected, users can continue to access the cloud-based software from any internet-enabled computer.
