Cloud System vs. Hosted Solution

Nov 22, 2015 | CEO Blog

Well, the world is moving towards the cloud. I have learned to always follow the leaders in the industry. We look at Apple, everything is going cloud based. Dropbox, a personal favorite, takes cloud based storage to a whole new level.

Technology and internet connections have become extremely stable. I can’t remember the last time my internet went down ;).

Now, let’s talk about the last time you had to call your IT guy to deal with an issue!

Streamline is considered software as a service (or SaaS) which is a way of delivering applications over the Internet—as a service. Instead of installing and maintaining software, you simply access it via the Internet, freeing yourself from complex software and hardware management.

SaaS applications are often referred to as cloud based solutions, Web-based software, or hosted software. The provider will generally manage access, performance and security for the application.

Cloud based systems allow you to run your business from anywhere in the world. If you have the right team, property management can become extremely easy and convenient.

As an example, we run an extremely profitable business in Park City. We have a steady growth of 100% year on year for the past 4 years. This continued growth is due to constant tweaks to the system to optimize the process. But the best thing about all of this is taking a break vacation and watching reservations come in as you use your computer or tablet to watch what us happening with your business.

Work smarter, not harder. Cloud based solutions are making technology more powerful and giving us property managers more freedom to work to live and not live to work. I challenge you, get on a cloud based system and let me know that feeling when you see a reservation come in while you are on a beach sipping on a pina colada!

Make sure it’s Streamline ;). The pina colada model is proven.
