Why not host with Amazon / Azure / Google? Isn’t the cloud “just the cloud”?
We know you’ve got choices in cloud hosting. The big players entered the game a while ago – Amazon, Azure, now Google. Sure, you can get your apps up there, and they’ll be ‘in the cloud’, but will the hosting company be responsive, and listen to your apps and know your P21 ERP needs? Can they work with you as a P21 ERP upgrade or consulting partner? We can. Is there a phone number to call if you have problems? Ours is 888-300-2340.
