PROFITsystems, Inc. announced the introduction of remote hosting to its services for furniture and home goods retailers. The company has designed and engineered a sophisticated remote hosting network for it clients, according to Jeff Niskern, president. PROFITon-demand began rolling out to clients nationwide last month.
As a remote hosting tool, the company says, PROFITon-demand is unmatched in reliability, which includes 24-hour monitoring and maintenance by IT specialists and network engineers. The new service boasts a state-of-the-art data center for high-speed data transfer and consistency, and managed firewall hardware for rock-solid, vaulted data security.
PROFITsystems developed its hosting environment to be more affordable and hassle-free, compared with traditional methods – most providers install their software products directly on clients’ internal computers and networks. “PROFITon-demand is an easier way to implement and to update the software that our clients use to run their businesses profitably,” says Niskern. “If you are a furniture retailer, you want to focus on your furniture business. You don’t want to be an IT expert, too.”
A monthly subscription fee is the only requirement for access and covers all upgrades. “It’s hard to keep up with all the tech stuff, especially in a tight economy” said W. Clyede Mynatt, president, The House Store, Atlanta, Georgia. “Who wants to invest in computer equipment or software that is going to be obsolete in no time,” added Mynatt, who is an early adopter of the new program. “Plus, I don’t want to worry that something went wrong with a nightly back up. My entire staff can access information from anywhere, so that’s another advantage. This is the way of the future, except that PROFITon-demand is available now.”
PROFITon-demand is the first fully comprehensive hosting tool available to the furniture trade, providing shared documents tools, which includes ubiquitous applications like Microsoft Office. “PROFITon-demand fits the scale of our operation perfectly,” said Ken Sisson, owner, Domaine Fine Furnishings and Design, Calgary, AB, Canada. “It’s straightforward and you get everything you need versus having to establish a separate budget for software.”
PROFITsystems, Inc. is a leading provider of home goods management software, consulting and retail business solutions. Software features include fully integrated inventory management and accounting systems. PROFITon-demand allows clients to implement PROFITprofessional, the company’s signature software program, with limited start-up and lower maintenance costs.
