Reason Number Five: Reliability

Imagine if this happened to your company:

While preparing a document for your 10-K, your network server crashes. IT can't get the network back up, and deadlines are approaching. The document has to be transferred over to a different server—one without the information, structure, and user access that reporting and management teams need.

A setback like this would max out the stress level of everyone involved. At worst, it would mean missed deadlines and possibly a late filing.

You can't control when a network crashes, but you can limit how often it happens by choosing a reliable platform to house your reports and data.

Our customers emphasize their need for a dependable reporting solution. That's why we chose industry leaders and innovators as our software providers.

The Wdesk infrastructure and platform providers, Google and Amazon, are unmatched in their network, application hosting, and data security. As a result, our application has better uptime, scalability, data redundancy, and fault tolerance than a traditionally hosted or on-premise system could provide.

What does that mean for our customers? It means they spend less time worrying about software failures and more time benefiting from our flexible application.

Eliminate the extra worry of network crashes and find a reporting solution that puts you in control.
