ASP services, or SaaS
A web-based software is an application that is installed on a web server and to which an internet address is assigned. The web server may be yours or one of Artisan's. The software is then available for users online via their web browsers – nothing is installed on individual computers.
ASP stands for Application Software Provider while SaaS stands for Software as a Service. The provision of ASP services means that we provide software services over a network. The services are run on our servers and you do not need to install anything on your computer.
Over the past few years, the purchase of software has been the most common operating mode. However, the acquisition of software requires having powerful computer hardware and software to install it on. These also need to be renewed every three to four years.
Outsourcing your IT services gives you access to top of the line IT solutions, but without the need for expensive investments in new web servers and databases, and without hiring network experts or IT consultants.
