ADS Portal, a privately held subscription based computing provider, today announced Access Accounting has chosen ADS Portal for provisioning their Dimensions Online.
Dimensions Online offers a totally flexible business solution for organisations that require a virtual office environment. The service allows remote workers, such as sales teams and home-based employees, to gain secure, fully-protected access to the flagship software solution, Access Dimensions, via the Internet.
John Beech, managing director for Access Accounting, comments on the partnership, “Dimensions Online breaks down the barriers of a physical working environment whilst retaining all the benefits of Access Dimensions. This offers businesses greater freedom to operate in the way that best suits them. For the solution to be totally robust and available 24x7, we had to have a reliable hosting partner. Due to their proven customer satisfaction and resilient infrastructure, ADS Portal is that partner of choice.”
ADS Portal will provide Access Accounting resellers and customers with the flexibility to subscribe to not only Dimensions Online, but an array of business and bespoke applications.
Ian Readman, Managing Director, ADS Portal, says, “We are extremely pleased to be providing Access Accounting the hosting platform that enables them to offer their customers such an innovative solution as Dimensions Online. We see more and more small to medium enterprises outsourcing not just their applications but their IT infrastructure. Offering customers what they need to be successful in their business is why Software as a Service is increasingly becoming defacto in application provision.
Access Accounting and ADS Portal will enable customers and resellers alike to choose how they access their business critical data,” he continued.
