What’s the Cloud?
Cloud computing means storing and accessing data and software over the Internet instead of using your server’s hard drive. The cloud enables data and software to be accessed from anywhere and at any time.
What is Software as a Service (SaaS)?
Typically, traditional PARC systems require you to purchase and install proprietary software onto your on-site server. In comparison, FlashPARCS’ Software as a Service (SaaS) model hosts and manages customized software all from the cloud. It is made available to customers over the Internet for a monthly fee, like Quickbooks online or SalesForce.com.
Smart Cloud vs. Cloud Lite
Some providers would like you to believe that you’re running your business in “the cloud,” but what they commonly market as “the cloud” is usually nothing more than a copy of the info from your on-site server that’s “parked” it in the cloud. We call this “Cloud Lite.”
FlashPARCS’ employs the power of Windows Azure, a flexible cloud platform that accesses a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. FlashPARCS’ Smart Cloud not only allows for dynamic, intelligent, real-time access to your data, but also provides network redundancies, disaster recovery, high availability, and scalability for your business.
Power of Real-Time Software
FlashPARCS’ Smart Stations have the power of a full blown computer, but the intelligence comes from our software. As we like to say, FlashPARCS’ Smart Station is the beauty, while our Smart Cloud SaaS infrastructure is the brains. Using a centralized, dynamic command center (like the one seen in Flash Valet), you can remotely control your operations with a few clicks of a button. Control revenue reporting, demand-based pricing, loyalties and rewards, a live attendant for customer assistance, and more.
The Cloud + SaaS = Cost Savings
Eliminate costly on-site infrastructure that’s hard to maintain with FlashPARCS’ Smart Cloud-based, SaaS model. By housing and managing hardware and software off-site, the Smart Cloud limits the need for tech support.
