The economic climate has continued to put financial pressure on small to mid-size companies causing them to delay computer hardware and software upgrades. As a result, more and more of these companies are working with dated software and unreliable hardware which is beginning to impact their business.
Commence Corporation, a leading provider of hosted and cloud based CRM software, has been helping businesses address this issue and reduce their IT infrastructure cost through the use of the company’s new hosting service. “Many people do not fully understand what software hosting offers them and are confused between software hosting and cloud computing” says Todd Pape, Chief Technology Office at Commence. “Customers currently utilizing on premise CRM software often want to remain with their in-house platform, but are looking to have the system maintained by professional engineers. Commence offers this as a service and it’s an easy transition. We provide the software, high speed servers with full backup and recovery, and manage the Commence CRM system 24/7 for the customer. This alleviates the high cost associated with purchasing new hardware and software and employing in-house staff to manage the system. It also enables Commence customers to focus their energy on growing their business while we maintain their CRM system.” Prices for Commence CRM hosted software service start at just $1 dollar a day per user.
