The main advantages of hosting are:
Hosted services allow small and mid-sized companies to have access to an IT infrastructure that they normally can’t afford. Hardware, bandwidth and networking are additional hidden costs.
Our Hosted services give you access to high caliber hardware and software that is usually out of the price range for smaller companies. As your users access our hosted system there is no need to purchase an expensive server and server software. You can use your existing hardware as workstations and your existing Internet connections.
Reduce IT Costs
Hardware, server software and networking are becoming more complex with each passing year. As a company grows, it hits a certain point where their IT infrastructure costs will soar.
With hosting, if a server blows up then it is our problem. We take care of backups, service packs and upgrades, thus eliminating your need for an in-house IT employee.
What happens if you close a deal and you have to expand rapidly? For most, this means new (or more) hardware, more expensive Internet connections and new IT personnel. Aside from the cost factor, it will take time.
With SIMMS Hosted all you have to do is increase your user count. You can add new users instantly.
Systems need to be updated and maintained on a constant basis. When this isn’t done then security becomes collateral damage. Security software is also expensive.
We use Citrix for several reasons. The main one is security. Citrix is considered the Cadillac of Internet security. Citrix is expensive, costly to implement and cost-prohibitive for most companies. As soon as a user connects into our servers they are on a secure connection.
Even though SIMMS runs on Windows with Citrix you don’t need to replace your MAC computers because they can access our Hosted service. Also, Citrix maximizes bandwidth and provides for a more stable connection.
