What is SaaS?
Launchpad – SaaS Access Control & Hosting Service
Software as a Service (SaaS) is a model of software deployment whereby a provider licenses an application to customers for use as a service on demand. SaaS solutions provide a more cost-effective alternative for organizations to achieve their business objectives than traditional packaged applications. Hosting your application with AMT’s service in certified data centers eliminates the need for software installation as well as maintenance and upgrades of software.
Why is SaaS more cost effective?
The SaaS model eliminates the large upfront software cost of implementing a traditional system. A monthly fee is simply charged for housing your data, and maintaining your application, meaning you can be up and running within a few days! SaaS also eliminates the costly investment of owning servers, not to mention their maintenance and replacement.
Is it Secure?
Yes. Millions of dollars are traded over the internet every day. Though Security-as-a-Service is still a new idea, many people do their banking online, and send confidential messages via email daily. AMT’s hosting center follows industry compliance to protect your data including SAS 70 Type II, PCI DSS, and Safe Harbor.
What do I have to do?
Besides branding the product and understanding the role you will be playing as an access control OEM, very little. We can help you with a variety of things including “Sell sheets”, pricing, marketing, training, technical support and best practices for installation.
Can I put my logo on the product?
Yes. AMT reference applications are created to be re-branded and therefore require you to put your brand on the product. We’ve made it easy for you to upload your logo and browse color themes for your application.
Can I move the system to my server?
Yes. Consumers of the AMT hosting service always have the option to purchase the software and move the entire operation in house if desired.
