HOW WE COMPARE IN THE INDUSTRY

From proprietary connections to additional software layers, you can almost guarantee you will need to put in a lot of work to use our competitor's technologies. We believe adding additional complexity and overhead to an already crowded IT space is often less secure. It also burdens the staff that have to manage it. Every new technology comes with a whole new set of work-arounds, bugs, and vulnerabilities. We like to keep it simple. Provide industry standard technology in a highly secure environment. You know exactly where your data is at all times and who has access to it. Simple in use, simple in pricing, a simple decision. Please see below for the information we have gathered on other industry options.
