PORTLAND, Ore, June 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Springbrook Community is the first, true, 100% cloud ERP solution for local government. Springbrook Community will be introduced at this year's Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) conference in Chicago, IL.
Private enterprise has embraced the cloud and local governments are taking notice. Cloud solutions provide a multitude of benefits to organizations facing shrinking budgets and expanding requirements. Benefits realized by Springbrook Community cloud customers include:
Increased Effectiveness of IT Resources
Overburdened IT staff no longer needs to manage ERP software and the hardware that runs it. All applications have full redundancy while service packs and upgrades are automatic and hands-free.
Reduced Hardware Expense
Maintaining hardware for ERP applications and the data they contain requires more than just IT staff time. Servers must be purchased and maintained, database licenses must be purchased and kept current, and obsolete hardware must be replaced. With Springbrook Community, all hardware and license fees are included in the flat and fixed cloud subscription fee.
Continuity of Service
With Springbrook Community, data and applications are not on premise where a disaster can prevent the performance of mission critical functions. Springbrook Community goes far beyond mere disaster recovery, providing uninterruptable continuity of service.
Flat and Fixed Predictable Costs
Springbrook Community provides defined, flat and fixed regular costs that make budgeting simple. Random and large capital expenditures are replaced with small and predictable planned payments.
Work from Anywhere/Anytime
Springbrook Community is securely and easily accessed from any internet connection . . . anywhere. Users log-in with their unique username and password without the need and expense of WAN access to the organization's network. Employees can log in from home or on the road.
Springbrook Community cloud clients often experience greater overall security than provided by on-premise solutions. Springbrook has partnered with an industry leader in hosting and cloud computing to ensure the highest level of constant data and application security. All transmitted data is encrypted with SSL (Secure Socket Layer) 256-bit encryption, and all servers use hardened, patched operating systems behind a dedicated firewall.
Springbrook Community's cloud computing partner maintains ISO17799-based security policies and procedures which are regularly reviewed and audited. Springbrook Community users can also expect the highest level of physical facility security available for complete and comprehensive security in any situation.
