CLOUD TECHNOLOGY
SaaS for Small and Midsize Businesses

ENTERPRISE-CLASS WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT AT A FRACTION OF THE COST

Since the term was coined just a few years ago, cloud computing has grown from an IT buzzword to a global business meta-trend. The cloud, in all of its various permutations, is causing organizations to re-evaluate, if not completely retool, their approaches to their computing needs.

Software as a service (SaaS), in particular, has emerged as a low-risk, cost-sensitive, cloud-based delivery model for automating standardized business processes.

Outsourcing your payroll, HR, and other workforce management applications to a SaaS model eliminates the technology headaches that can plague internal deployments. It reduces costs. Lets you offer the same premium employee packages provided by your larger competitors. And offloads the entire IT burden from your organization so you can focus on what you do best — growing your business.
