Essentia Hosted Solution
When choosing Essentia, customers can choose to host their own solution or have their software hosted in LWSI’s data center. The Essentia Hosted Solution, provides many benefits to our customers who select this option. Such benefits include:
- Decreases the demand on internal IT staff – With the Essentia Hosted Solution, LWSI is responsible for daily backups and monitoring of the server. LWSI is also responsible for hardware and or software updates.
- Constant smaller upgrades – LWSI’s goal is to keep our customers current with the latest technology and Essentia application.
- Save Money – Several factors contribute to costs savings:
- Lower IT Costs – When you subscribe to a Essentia Hosted Solution , you avoid the overhead associated with implementing conventional software. A typical software implementation involves purchasing and maintaining servers, housing them securely, and installing and maintaining the software. This requires the time and effort of experienced IT personnel and deflects the efforts of employees at a number of levels away from the core mission of your agency.
- Economies of Scale – Subscription to Essentia Hosted Solution reflects the economies of scale achieved by many agencies coming together and allowing LWSI to host their solution. LWSI already has a dedicated data center and trained staff who are experienced in supporting and maintaining such equipment.
- Pay as You Go – Essentia Hosted Solution customers pay on a monthly, quarterly, or annual subscription fee. Compared to a traditional software license, this subscription payment structure can work to your advantage because an ongoing monthly expense is easier to budget than a large one-time payment.
