You’ve decided to move your Sage ERP to the cloud. Great idea, but how will you decide which hosting option is best? Meet Cloud at Work. Cloud at Work has been hosting Sage ERP and other Sage applications for years and has quickly grown into an extraordinarily robust cloud hosting platform relied on by Sage users and partners throughout North America. We believe that Cloud at Work can stand toe-to-toe with the biggest hosting services out there. In fact, it may even step on a few toes.

Layers (and layers) of separation

If your Sage ERP application does not work, or does not open, who do you call when your application is in the cloud? Your IT provider, your Sage provider, the internet service provider, the hosting company, someone else? Who will be responsible for fixing the issue and how long will it take? These are the questions you should be asking as you look for the right Cloud for Sage ERP.

The overwhelming majority of companies that use Amazon, Azure or Google to host their applications will never ever speak to these behemoths when an issue arises. Most companies’ relationships with their Cloud Service Provider (CSP) pass through many layers. In fact, in many instances, you won’t even choose your CSP, a company in one of those layers will choose it for you. And the layers can get pretty thick. If you rely on a managed service provider (MSP), they’ll be one of the layers. And something called the Provisioning Portal will be yet another layer.

We get it, creating a world-class application hosting service requires resources. But we contend, it does not require layers. The problem with layers is this: when you have a question or an issue it becomes very difficult to determine who’s at fault — or more importantly, who can fix it. And when that question is about the mission-critical software that’s running your business, you shouldn’t have to sift through layers to get an answer.

Or straight to the source

The Cloud at Work Sage hosting service operates differently — much differently. You have a question — you call us. You have a problem — you call us. One call. No layers.

Cloud at Work was purpose built to host Sage applications. We are staffed by some of the keenest and most experienced Sage minds in the country ready to provide world-class service to Sage business partners and their customers. We can quickly identify issues, get to the root of problems, loop in your Sage business partner, and get you back to business. It’s an application focus and a level of service that other CSPs simply cannot match.

But that’s not the only reason Cloud at Work Sage cloud hosting services make smart sense. Our Tier 4 (highest rating) Data Centers are protected by 24x7x365 on-site security with dual factor, biometric access control. Support features include 24x7x365 monitoring, alerting, and notification, 99.99% availability and hourly backup snapshots. And that’s not the half of it. Simply stated: Cloud at Work Data Centers are among the best of the best and we invite you to compare them to any CSP out there.

We’re pleased that Sage ERP customers and their partners have multiple options as they consider a move to a Hosted ERP model. The model has numerous advantages over keeping the application in house, including remote accessibility and stronger security. We’re so certain that when you review options for hosting Sage 100, Sage 300, Sage X3, and other Sage applications, you’ll see what makes Cloud at Work the clear choice.
