Your Trusted Partners in Business-Building Tools

To remain competitive, many companies outsource as a way to reduce costs, increase efficiencies, and refocus critical resources.

Below are some of the benefits of outsourcing your Loyalty Program, e-Purse or e-Commerce System to CardBiz.

Predictability of costs and lower up-front investment and savings in investment on expensive software

One of the benefits of outsourcing to an ASP is that costs are fixed (usually via a monthly or yearly subcription) and can be calculated easily throughout the year, which makes it easier to budget accordingly. This predictability is a more compelling value proposition than the 'rental versus buy' argument. Because of the lower up-front costs, an ASP can allow a company to get into a more sophisticated software product than if purchased outright. Prices vary depending on the type of software, the level of customization, the number of users, and the length of the contrast. If there is an up-front costs, it will usually relate to the implementation. The license cost and ongoing maintenance and connectivity costs are part of the yearly fee.

As the application is procured and hosted by the ASP, our customers is saved the burden of investing huge sums of money on procuring expensive software that may or may not suit his method of operation. By-product of this advantage is the fact that this presents the customer an option to 'bail out' of the set up without much financial implications. This dact becomes significant considering the fact that several enterprises realize mid-way that a given package might not be all that 'hand-in-glove' with the operations of their enterprise.

Cost savings in setting up infrastructure for the software

As customer is now required to only have Internet access to the host, dedicated server to host the application may not required. This also avoids the problem of constantly up-grading the hardware that tends to grow obsolete very fast. Further, in view of the first point above, this also provides flexbility to the cutsomer to rethink on the desision to continus with the set up.

    Turnkey solution resulting in lower cost of management and operation

    The solution offered by an ASP bundles software, hardware, systems development, integration, and management together, resulting in a significant reduction in the decision making and administrative burden on the client company. The company also reduces costs, as they no longer need to hire and train in-house staff to manage the application.

    Faster time to market

    ASP-delivered enterprise applications can often reduce the complexity of installing a new system. The typical 18-24 month implementation cycles for enterprise applications have become obsolete. In addition to removing many issues relating to hardware and networking, ASPs often aim to deliver a standardized configuration, limiting levels of customization, thus reducing time to go live. Another reason for a quiker implementation is that the ASP is putting the software on its own hardware, a configuration with which it is familiar.

    A viable solution to a mobile, distributed work force

    Firms are increasingly coping with a work force that is very distributed and often mobile and which needs to access more information from disparate platforms. An ASP can enable a company to provide all of its employees, irrespective of location, with access to all relevant applications simply through a Web browser. This makes it easier for the employee to sign on and work on the network remotely, and reduces the firm's burden significantly in maintaining a distributed computing environment.

    Focus on business, not technology

    Most organizations realize that their core competencies are something other than running IT systems, yet still many companies expend great time and money on these systems. Outsourcing to an ASP enables an increase in focus on the company's core competencies, freeing up internal staff to work on these areas, rather than on providing application management services. Aggregating and remotely managing applications for dozens of companies enables service levels to improve and significant economies of scale to be achieved.

    Finally, applications that have traditionally been reserved for the largest companies in the world are now more affordable and available to companies of all sizes - all thanks to ASPs.
