Cloud-based computing (also called Software as a Service, or SaaS) allows users access to software applications that run on shared computing resources (for example, if when you access Google or download your music to your icloud or watch your favourite series on Netflix or Hulu) via the Internet. These computing resources are maintained in remote data centers dedicated to hosting various applications on multiple platforms.

What Exactly Is Cloud Time And Attendance?

ATS TimeWorkOnDemand for instance, is a software- as-a-service (SaaS) application that allows users to access our time and attendance software over the Internet. Accessing ATS TimeWorkOnDemand over the Internet, means that the upfront costs is significantly lower, because computing resources are leased by the month rather than purchased outright and maintained on a Server at your organization.

As we have seen in the last several years, more companies are adopting cloud applications in record numbers. And, the advantage of using the cloud means that small, and medium-size businesses, can access a wide range business applications, at reasonable prices, without having to lay out a huge amount of capital for software and hardware.

Here are some distinct advantages for using a cloud time and attendance, like ATS TimeWork OnDemand

  • Reduces need for significant internal IT support services because, your company are not managing the software on its Server
  • Eliminates paying upfront for application software licenses in favor of a monthly fee
  • Paying only for what you use. For example, if the number of employees you have in the fall and winter goes down, so will your monthly costs
  • You can access ATS TimeWork OnDemand from any device (Smartphone, tablet or workstation) that has an Internet connection. In addition, you can switch between any device, including Google Android, Windows, Mac, Apple iPad or iPhone and/or Linux Desktop
  • A fixed monthly rate so your company can use their cash on other business initiatives

The acceptance of the cloud has been growing steadily and that’s in large part to its many benefits, including; flexibility, low financial outlay and scalability. Some companies dip their toe in the water by simply moving core elements of their time and attendance into the cloud, while others are choosing the middle ground of a hybrid cloud environment, which keeps core time and attendance functions on-premise while also utilizing a variety of multi-tenant public cloud systems to manage certain parts of their business.

Some C-suite executives including finance and HR, at times, need convincing when it comes to the cloud, and if their past experiences with a cloud solution, have been less than stellar — asking them to give a cloud-base solution another chance might be an uphill battle.

In a published article for CFO.com titled The Cloud: A Better Expense Model Roy Golding, does a masterful job in espousing the virtues of the cloud and its inherent benefits.

“Cloud asks businesses and their finance leaders to reevaluate some long-held approaches to IT and how it is accounted for. Traditionally, any time an organization wanted to make a significant technology change, the CFO needed to ensure the long-term business model supported the investment. Making heavy capex investments up front — think expensive data-center hardware — always brought with it the risk that the hardware wouldn’t be fully utilized down the road.

The Benefits Of The Cloud Is Undeniable So, Don’t Get Left Behind

In contrast, cloud offers the flexibility to move technology resources and to not be tied into one big investment at the beginning of a new project or business. Software-as-a-service (SaaS), for example, removes the need for businesses to install and run software and applications on their own hardware within their own physical infrastructure, which also removes the associated expenses. In this operating expense model, instead of taking a large cash hit on the P&L statement right away, the company can pay for the service over time as it gradually grows the investment.

In the past, if IT teams needed additional hardware, software, or connectivity resources at certain times of the year — for seasonal reasons, perhaps — the investment to cover that requirement may have resulted in over-provisioning after the busy period ended. And a double hit resulted — the company subsequently owned depreciating technology assets that weren’t being used most of the time. This approach has never been popular with CFOs, but before the arrival of the cloud there was little alternative.”

If your organization is still on the fence about the cloud, you can always start small and grow with it. For example, with ATS TimeWork OnDemand Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) you can easily increase or decrease capacity to cost-effectively handle peak demand.  And, because the configuration with ATS TimeWork OnDemand configuration is less complex, you don’t high-value implementation team members thus– helping keep deployment costs down.

The power of the cloud is undeniable so, don’t leave your organization behind. Still not convinced? Find out how ATS TimeWork OnDemand Enterprise Cloud Solutions can deliver the speed and resources necessary to quickly validate and realize solid ROI.
