ALLENTOWN, Pa. (Oct. 9, 2013) — MAM Software Inc. said its Autopart Online Software as a Service (SaaS) solution is available for use in the U.S.
Autopart Online is a cloud-hosted version of MAM's Windows-based application for distributors, jobbers and retailers that offers the same point-of-sale, stock control and accounting functionality as its on-premise counterpart, MAM said, but comes without the costly purchase and upkeep of in-house server infrastructure. Autopart Online is already used in the United Kingdom.
"We're thrilled to bring our latest SaaS product to the U.S.," said Mike Jamieson, CEO of MAM Software Group.
He said businesses continue to move toward "virtual solutions" since "cloud hosting has proven itself as a trusted alternative to privately hosted environments.
"MAM has met this movement head-on and we look forward to helping more businesses take advantage of all the benefits the cloud has to offer."
Rather than buying and installing software upfront, Autopart Online Software as a SaaS allows users to rent business management systems on a per-user basis, MAM said. Instead of purchasing and maintaining expensive servers on their own premises, users connect to a state-of-the-art data center by an enterprise-grade network.
Autopart Online is a fully managed service. MAM Software will update users' software when necessary, maintain the server hardware and ensure that customers' data is securely stored and backed-up. The company said implementation processes are streamlined and new users can be added easily.
