As access to the Internet becomes more widespread with faster, more reliable and ‘always on’ connections becoming the norm the growth of applications using the hosted application model continues to expand.
The thin client concept is nothing new but advances in Internet connectivity have allowed the application to move from a local server to a server on the Internet.
What Are The Benefits?
Reduced costs to you, instant deployment for you, no maintenance for you
With hosted applications the hardware and software is the responsibility of the vendor with the client only having to maintain access to the Internet. As there is no software to download a hosted application can be made instantly available across an entire organization even where the organization has multiple regional and international offices.
New customers can often test hosted applications either through a free introduction offer or with minimal risk using a Pay-As-You-Go model. If after trialling the hosted application the customer finds it unsuitable then they can simply stop using the service.
Since the application software and data is stored in the cloud, it is available to the authorized client once they have logged on from anywhere with Internet access. The customer can now work anywhere in the office environment, from remote offices or from their home or hotel without the need to download their work or synchronize with portable devices.
Assistance is provided if you require access to the application in adding , creating new users. If you require the application to be updated, this can be done with minimal impact on other applications.

- Low start-up costs
- Minimal Risk, no long term commitment
- Backups and viruses is taken care of
- Hardware and software server maintenance is taken care of
- Investment in local hardware & software reduced
- No need to synchronize data with multiple devices
