"Anywhere - real time!"
Minimize Capital Outlay
The Collect! cloud based hosted solution is all inclusive; the hardware, the applications, the environment, the backups and the maintenance are all taken care of for you. This substantially lowers the cost of getting started, allows you to pay for what you use in the cloud, and enables you to grow without having to reinvest in additional hardware or reconfigure systems that were not properly sized.
There are a number of reasons that an office would consider moving to the cloud from an on premise solution. For example, if an office doesn't want to hire expensive technical staff and requires remote access for management or administrative staff, then a cloud based hosted system may be the right solution for the office. In general, the portability, mobility, scalability, and availability of a cloud solution are going to fit collections offices small, medium, and large.
Safe & Stable
Keeping your data on premises can feel safer because an on premise solution is tangible, you can see it and touch it and you feel that the data is "safer" than having it on the cloud. However, a cloud based solution is more secure, more robust, and more scalable.
" The Collect! cloud based hosted solution has its benefits, such as not having to have a full time IT employee in place."
For smaller organizations, choosing the Collect! cloud based hosted product will quickly level the technical playing field with larger collection agencies. The Collect! cloud based hosted solution provides your company with nightly backups, data security, a disaster recovery plan, and access from anywhere an internet connection is available. This allows you to focus your resources on growing your business.
A Collect! cloud based hosted solution offers a means of creating a collection solution at a lower cost of entry; oftentimes at a fraction of the cost of creating a premise based solution. In addition, a Collect! cloud based hosted solution is scalable; you pay for what you use and can readily grow as the business grows.
The Real Cost of Ownership
The fact is the cost of owning a premise-based solution is more than just buying software. You have to acquire hardware, build the network, and then maintain everything. Eighty percent of the total cost of ownership of a premise-based solution happens after the sale of the software. With a cloud solution you have a predictable service - just like electricity. You pay for what you use and when you want to use it, it is always on.
The Collect! cloud based hosted solution includes a highly secure environment that includes backups, disaster recovery and redundancy. So the individual office really needs to ask where they want to put their resources; growing their business or creating and then managing a premise solution.
