100% Cloud Applications

What is Cloud Computing?

In the current "normal" economic environment, businesses are looking for new ways to grow while keeping a keen eye on the bottom line. Most companies are already running lean and need fundamentally new ways to conduct business to make a substantial difference to both their top and bottom lines.  FinancialForce business applications and cloud computing represent a potential game changing strategy to transform and position your organization to compete effectively in this hyper-competitive environment. 

The choice between cloud vs on-premises applications

From an IT perspective, most companies have come to the realization that traditional on-premises based systems are expensive to implement, own and maintain. More importantly, the majority of IT resources at most organizations are focused solely on maintaining legacy applications, not on delivering new initiatives.  Cloud computing on the other hand, eliminates the majority of day-to-day IT headaches. It allows you to shift IT resources to projects that have more strategic impact. Moreover, a large number of IT analyst firms have confirmed that cloud based applications are 30-40% more cost effective than their on-premises forebears. In short, cloud computing is a more strategic and cost effective solution.

Real-time applications for real-time business

Business today needs to be conducted efficiently at internet speed and able to leverage the increasing capabilities of mobile devices and virtual office environments. FinancialForce applications are designed to serve as the financial and project information hub in this environment. They are real-time applications, built to mitigate time lags and unnecessarily long period close processes.  They provide unparalleled ways to capture and store financial information so you can analyze and measure your business. The application’s multi-dimensional database is complemented by a full array of reporting and dashboard tools available on the Salesforce Platform. This includes the ability to push information to mobile devices while your employees are out of the office, at a customer or supplier site. And finally, FinancialForce.com has harnessed the power of Chatter, a Facebook-like collaboration tool that allows your employees to collaborate in real-time across departmental barriers like never before.
