Complete-Cloud Based Features
The Soft-Pak solution can be either on your own in-house server or on our secure hosted cloud. Our cloud solution provides complete Soft-Pak functionality without hardware investment. Ideal for operations that want to eliminate hardware purchases, maintenance, and administrative expense associated with supporting in-house servers. A standard high-speed internet connection (DSL, cable, wireless or cellular) is all that’s required; as the Soft-Pak application is platform and network independent. Leverage your existing equipment; as the Soft-Pak cloud solution works with most PCs and printers. The complete package; including customer support, software updates, and security all without having to manage more equipment.
Soft-Pak maintains 99.99% uptime with both a primary and secondary data center with real-time high availability replication software to ensure ongoing reliability. Both data centers are owned, managed, and supported by Soft-Pak; we do not outsource equipment, software, or support. No expense has been spared; as each data center maintains redundant power, multiple forms of connectivity, storage, and replacement equipment on site. Soft-Pak continues to test our DR “disaster recovery” failover process in an effort to ensure constant and reliable access no matter the emergency. Fast, secure, and reliable; with thousands of users, supporting their billing, routing, scale, and fleet operations, the Soft-Pak cloud continues to deliver value.
Secure. Compliant. Reliable.
How secure are your hardware and your data? That’s a big question in today’s business environment. The migration to cloud services is the choice for most waste haulers. Simply put, you gain reliability, performance, and security all while paying and managing less. User security is controlled by the client, so only company management or authorized administrators have access. Soft-Pak takes it one step further by contracting outside security experts to perform annual security vulnerability assessments. Just part of the ongoing investment to make sure our clients are secure. Prevent data loss, secure corporate information, and ensure your operation is never down….. all on the Soft-Pak cloud.
