Hosted systems have the flexibility to be used equally effectively as a complete replacement of your on-premises systems; as a hybrid solution for remote offices; disaster recovery facility; or data back-up repository.
One of the main barriers clients often face when implementing a new software solution is the effort required from their IT team to provide and support the required infrastructure. Ascertus can provide hosting for the majority of our products including iManage Work (WorkSite) and are the only UK company providing iManage Work (WorkSite) as a hosted solution. This drastically reduces the internal IT effort required, proves more cost effective, and provides Ascertus with 24 hour access to the environments to monitor and maintain systems in accordance with an approved change control process. It is also easier to build applications that span both on-premises and the cloud.
