Cloud-based software is hosted on your vendor’s servers and accessed through a web browser, whereas on-premise software is installed locally, on a company’s own computers and servers.
PlotBox firmly believe that Cloud infrastructure is central to enabling best practice in cemetery management, and for many reasons.
Firstly, Cloud gives you predictable costs over time, and less of an up front investment, it can also be cheaper over the lifecycle of an on-premise system, depending on what range of issues arise over time and also because there are no expensive hardware installations to be made on site which can lead to additional IT costs from your installer.
We believe data security is higher with PlotBox’s Cloud infrastructure. What's more, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the world’s highest standard in data security, to which PlotBox is fully compliant with. All cemetery records we hold, regardless of their origin from anywhere in the world, are protected to this unrivalled standard.
Practicing proper data security protocols, especially if you’re not specialists in this field, can mean that the full responsibility for the data’s security can end up being a huge worry for many organizations.
Our Cloud platform offers higher stability than a locally installed, highly customised system, and you'll instantly benefit from all the continuous updates as they become live. Highly customised systems can also bring with it unforeseen problems, for instance when your cemetery software provider make updates to the product.
Finally a much appreciated benefit of Cloud means shorter implementation times so you get the security you need much sooner.
