Cloud computing technology for SMEs now live

19 May 2009

A cloud computing technology suite containing over 20 business management and productivity applications for small and medium business has been launched by an Irish company.

Eazybusiness launched the productivity suite yesterday at the International Cloud Computing Conference in Prague.

The applications, which include email, document management, time and attendance, web meeting, invoicing, inventory management and salesforce management, are accessed securely by company employees over the internet.

“Eazybusiness allow companies to save significant costs, which is becoming all the more pertinent in the current recessionary climate,” said Pat Bolger, CEO.

“Why spend money supporting outdated in house applications or buying new servers? With Eazybusiness you need never buy another server, all the applications are hosted in the cloud and are available from anywhere over the internet,” he added.

When a user signs up to Eazybusiness, their applications become available immediately without any need for the user to worry about installation, hosting, backups, security, etc.

All the applications are accessed over the web through a virtual desktop or ‘webtop’ that is automatically created for each user. The webtop is similar to the Windows look and feel, and so should be instantly familiar to the majority of users.

Bolger said that companies that sign up to Eazybusiness are also given a free company website, the content of which can be updated and changed over the web at any time.

The Eazybusiness offering is free for the first 90 days and costs from as little as €3 per user per month thereafter.

In addition, Eazybusiness offer a package for free for companies with less than 10 users. The Eazyconnect package includes corporate email, shared calendar, shared tasks, document management, online chat and online meeting applications.
