Moving To The 'Cloud'

Moving To The 'Cloud'

As part of our commitment to stay at the leading edge of technology, and to provide you with the most efficient tools for managing your business, we are transitioning many of our XSite products to offer 'cloud' or web-based access.

What is 'cloud' technology?

In the simplest terms, when you use cloud or web-based software, you are accessing the software and the data it holds over the Internet instead of on your computer's hard drive. The 'cloud' is just a metaphor for the Internet. 

Why is it better for my business?

There are any number of reasons, but for Gas Station and Convenience Store (C-Store) owners, some of these are key:

Monitor Your Business More Effectively. With cloud software, the speed at which you can access your data and analytics helps you make smarter business decisions faster.

Reduce Spending on Technology Infrastructure. No more having to buy servers and install programs. Wtih cloud software, you can have easy access to your information with minimal upfront spending. Subscription models allow you to pay-as-you-go (weekly, quarterly or yearly).

Streamline Processes. With cloud technology, you are able to et more work done in less time with fewer people.

Anywhere, Anytime Accessibility. Because cloud software is accessed through your internet browser (ie. Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, etc.) you have access to your company information anytime, anywhere!

Less Training Required. It takes fewer people to do more work on a cloud, with a minimal learning curve for using the software.

Improve Flexibility. You can change direction without serious “people” or “financial” issues at stake.

These are just a few of the benefits of cloud or web-based technology. To learn more about how our web-based XSite products can add value to your business, give us a call!
