Rather than investing in physical hardware, why not consider spreading the cost with a hosted version.
The move to the cloud will be completely seamless – your users will notice no difference and you can have all your applications installed on the virtual server. You still maintain total control of your servers whilst our expert team monitor and maintain your server on a 24/7 basis.
Many vendors such as Google and Microsoft allow you to use their applications on a pay as you use basis. By paying a single monthly fee, you get full access to the application for as long as you want, without ever having to worry about upgrading.
A good and often used example of a hosted application is hosted emails. You rent individual mailboxes and pay per user. Our hosted email solutions will come with built in anti-spam and anti-virus protection so you do not need to worry about any additional outlay for this. You can add or reduce the amount of users you have fairly easily and if you later choose to have an on premise solution instead it is also fairly easy to switch.
