What is the primary advantage of choosing MicroAccounting for hosting services over another company?
We know your ERP software, so we have the background to make sure implementation goes well.
Who should consider using a hosting service?
Everyone. It’s an especially great solution for small-to-mid-size businesses.
How do I know if hosting is right for my application(s)?
Most software products are capable of being hosted these days. However, there are exceptions. If your software can run on a server operating system (OS), it likely can be hosted. We can do a review of the software you are currently running and your network and personalize your hosted solution and costs.
Is hosting more or less expensive than an on-premise solution?
Too often, people look at the monthly cost of hosting vs. new server set-up, which is misleading. Consider all other costs involved to run your own server—updates, security, back-ups, and full upgrades every three years, which require migrating all of your data, not to mention the internal staff salaries and time. Read our blog article, Cloud ERP ROI—Impressive Value for more details.
What are the costs associated with hosting?
The biggest costs of hosting are the CPU, memory storage and back-up hard drives. There are some licensing costs as well. It is important to scope out your current environment and get a true understanding of your requirements.
How long does it take to implement a hosted solution?
Start-to-finish, the implementation process will take approximately 60 days. We test all features to make sure your system is ready to move to the cloud.
At what point should I consider moving to the cloud?
The best time to move to the cloud is when your servers or workstations are getting old. Another great time to make the change is when you upgrade your ERP solutions. This will allow you to test the new version in a cloud environment.
Is the cloud secure?
Yes! Hosting provides 24 x 7 monitoring of your servers, which are located in a secured building, in a cage only accessible by a select number of people.
