Three Ways Clients Win With Software-as-a-Service
Acuity’s commitment to delivering our enterprise legal management (“ELM”) software in the cloud is based on our steadfast desire to always do right by our clients. Software as a Service (“SaaS”) translates to three big wins for the corporate counsel and insurance claims organizations we serve:
(1) Affordability: we believe the smaller and mid-sized legal teams out there should be able to access and benefit from ELM efficiencies just like the larger corporate teams with deeper pockets.
(2) Rapid Turn On: delivering our service in the cloud means we can get legal teams up and running on our matter management and e-billing platform in weeks. No more suffering through excruciating on-premise installations with long lead times and frequent communication black holes.
(3) Best User Experience: because we routinely build, test and ship updates, our clients benefit from regular releases of new functionality – accessing the latest features and technology by simply logging on in the morning and without complicated behind-the-firewall machinations.
SaaS Adoption On The Rise Chief Information Officers and technologists care a lot about the applications they manage – and the data that powers them. Simply put, both data and application must be secure, accessible and usable – no caveats, no down time, no exceptions. Goverance, risk mitigation and compliance rule the day, and often are the key criteria against which technology investment decisions are made.
The reward/risk ratio continues to shift favorably toward cloud-based delivery of software. According to Computerworld’s 2015 Forecast Study, 42% of IT decision makers are planning to increase their spending on cloud-based services in 2015. In fact, cloud computing was cited as the single most important IT project currently in flight among the study’s participants, with 16% assigning cloud-based projects top-billing in terms of impact and import. At the same time, disaster recovery and business continuity ranked a distant sixth.
Acuity Protect‘s comprehensive approach to disaster recovery and business continuity ensures your move to the cloud is best for your business, your risk profile and your bottom line.
