On Premise? Cloud based? What’s the difference?!?

25 Sep 2014

Through your search for the ultimate CRM system you will have explored Cloud solutions and On Premise solutions. You may be looking for a SalesForce alternative, but which one? In this blog I’m going to be focusing on the key benefits of having a cloud hosted solution.

1. Simplicity

How simple is it to be able to rely on a service that will be all hosted, that you can access anywhere in the world.

2. Low cost

Using cloud hosted CRM software like OpenCRM will limit your recurring costs dramatically. Monthly subscription fees, annual support/maintenance fee and an initial, one time training and configuration cost are all it takes!

3. Less maintenance

Nothing is on premise, so we take care of everything. Have you spotted a bug? Our amazing support team is on it! There is no need to trouble your IT department, or hire one out if you don’t have one. Our support team is there for you when you need it.

4. Auto upgrades

The issue with an on premise system is that you need to worry about upgrading it! Not anymore, OpenCRM takes care of that. You will have access to all the latest upgrades, included in your support contract. We let you know when an upgrade will be made, out of hours to allow for a smooth, seamless transition.

5. No Down time

No more risk of losing precious billable time! With a current 99.999% uptime, OpenCRM has a whole host of security features and numerous fail safes to make sure that if anything were to happen we would be on it within a 30 minute SLA to get you back up and running smoothly.

If you have any other questions in your debate, don’t ever hesitate to give us a call! We’d love to show you just how much benefit you can get from a cloud hosted CRM system. We are there to help you grow, evolve and maximise your success!
