Why the Cloud?

The acceleration of services digitalization requires a continuous evolution of the company’s network infrastructure (Discover our cloud computing solutions).

The IT budget of an SME must be controlled, measured, and in line with strategic and growth objectives, while enabling new tools availability.

The growing endorsement of advanced communication tools on a daily basis (online community, chats, videoconferencing, etc.) makes users confused about their company not adopting the same services, resulting in a complex management of the BOYD and critical computer data security.

Until recently, adaptation to these technological evolutions required investment in costly infrastructure, regular maintenance and updates, without necessarily measuring the total cost of ownership, let alone the return on investment.

All this resulting in being trapped in heterogeneous technologies, unable to meet the company’s evolution needs and customer expectations.

The Cloud allows companies of all sizes and technological maturity to access flexible, scalable and pay-per-use solutions.

The 10 advantages of SaaS for your SME

Services at a lower cost

Lower software usage and maintenance than traditional systems, and a durably low subscription cost in a very competitive market.

No installation or updates

SaaS software is pre-installed on the provider's servers and ready to use, resulting in a very short deployment time. Updates are made by the service provider and all employees use an identical version for internal data compatibility.

No investment amortization

Software accounts for an operating cost, fixed and predictable, not an investment in the balance sheet. Subscription cost is immediately deductible from the company's income without yearly depreciation.

Consumption reduction

Server consumption is optimized by sharing resources between companies.

Secure data

Data security responsibility lies with the selected service provider, who’s core business includes data security.

A customizable contract

When storing confidential data, you can negotiate specific provisions for security, maintenance and data availability with the service provider.

Accessible anywhere 24/7

The relocation of software to remote servers allows a mobile use of services and documents. Access with an Internet connection is possible from anywhere, at any time.


The offers are flexible and scalable, allowing solutions that meet the company’s real needs. Subscription can be amended almost instantly when hiring or downsizing.

Produce in SaaS mode

In addition to application use, SMEs can create SaaS services for their customers without having their own infrastructure, you just need to contact your supplier.
