Hosted services are revolutionizing the way a business can deploy and deliver software solutions to employees and customers. Web based applications represent a significant leap forward from traditional client/server software. Your core business applications are instantly accessible from anywhere you can access the Internet and facilitate easy collaboration among all authorized users. There is no software to buy, install, or maintain, so it is fast and affordable to deploy. It's secure and private, and offers data backup and security based on industry best practices.
