6 Benefits of Using a Hosted Server for your Sage Solution

Improving your Business Software

If you’ve been thinking about buying or upgrading to Sage 200, a crucial factor to consider is the compatibility of your IT infrastructure to run the software. Developments in hardware and the associated Microsoft technologies (Server, SQL, Windows, Office etc.) are ongoing and can make improving your business software much more costly than it needs to be.

Working from Multiple Locations & Devices

In addition, flexible working, from multiple locations and multiple devices is now a ‘must have’ for many companies. Whether you are working from home, abroad or on the move in between meetings, having the option to work remotely is no longer a benefit, it’s a genuine requirement.

As users spend increasing amounts of time moving from one device to another, the ability to have a seamless user experience with continuous access to your company information has become a process more difficult to oversee. Factors such as security, permissions, data sovereignty, disaster recovery, and continuity are all of paramount importance yet are not part of your day job. So, how can you gain the relevant service without having to oversee such dynamics?
