FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ATLANTA, GA – Software for Hardware announces the release of SFH Cloud™ , which has been developed in response to door, frame, and hardware distributors’ need for easy remote access, lower IT costs and higher data security and protection. SFH Cloud™ is now available to current and new Software for Hardware customers.
Software for Hardware believes that cloud migration makes sense from a staff, cost, and client perspective. Shifting the IT environment from a local in-office server to a cloud-hosted environment provides door distributors dramatic benefits. IT Manager at Software for Hardware, Michael Schecter stated, “We developed SFH Cloud for distributors with low IT resources but high need for easy access, system reliability and data security.”
This summer Software for Hardware concluded a successful Beta test period with Software for Hardware users. National Door Center, located in Irving Texas, jumped at the opportunity to participate in the SFH Cloud Beta. Prior to SFH Cloud™, National Door Center utilized Software for Hardware via a home-office server. Unfortunately, their internal I.T. system caused frustration for Marty Vaughan, who runs operations and sales.
Frequent tech problems caused interruption in order processing and simply completing project management tasks. Marty reflected, “We were connecting to the home office server and we encountered issue after issue. Seemed that our connection would only work one out of every two times. We’d get kicked out of the software due to our poor network setup.”
National Door Center immediately realized a dramatic improvement in the first few days of use. Marty continues, “Ever since we’ve been using SFH Cloud it has been a much more solid experience for us, most all of the problems we experienced disappeared on day 1 once we went to SFH Cloud.” Marty and his team are very pleased with the business results of migrating to the cloud provided faster and more dependable access to the software. Marty described the transition from their old software and old server to SFH Cloud, “It has literally been night and day.”
SFH Cloud™ is based on state of the art cloud technology through Amazon AWS. Ian Oxman, co-owner, “Too often IT issues such as frequent downtime and ongoing costs hinder distributors ability to maximize the value of powerful door frame hardware software. SFH Cloud™ eliminates those issues and enables our clients to focus on their business and customers.”
A common concern for door, frame and hardware distributors relative to new software implementation is downtime. SFH Cloud™ can be implemented “next day” with no loss of crucial business hours and valuable time. “Implementing SFH Cloud brings immediate positive results and increases productivity to your door, frame and hardware business,” commented Oxman. Implementing state of the art door software technology, profitability and success for day to day business operations.
