While on-premise software is downloaded, and installed on a server or computer, cloud software is available over the Internet and offers the same functionality, but also provides some much-needed extra benefits.
No Added Costs/Speedy Setup
Cloud-based software has no costs related to server hardware, maintenance, licenses, network configuration or IT support. Instead of waiting for a CD to arrive, configuring the hardware and installing the software, you can be up and running in minutes.
Keeping software up to date can be both pricey and complex, but it is crucial. Cloud-based CMMS services are monitored around the clock with hardware and software updates automatically handled by your CMMS provider.
Databased security is the responsibility of the cloud CMMS provider so you get the peace of mind that comes with knowing that data protection, secure logins, data encryption and anti-virus updates are all taken care of.
