ASA Experiencing Explosive Growth of Cloud-Based Business Management Solutions
Merrimack, NH (July 24, 2012) – ASA Automotive Systems, the industry leader in providing software systems and services to tire dealers and auto repair centers, has recently experienced a huge surge in the popularity and number of clients taking advantage of its Cloud-based hosting services.
ASA began offering a hosted solution to its customers almost seven years ago. The number of clients utilizing ASA’s Cloud-based offerings has gradually continued to increase every year. In 2011 ASA migrated to a new SAS 70 Type II certified hosting facility environment and completely redesigned the infrastructure architecture that supports its customer base. In the past year the growth rate of ASA clients opting for a Cloud-based solution has exploded with an impressive 40% growth rate since the beginning of 2012.
The data supporting this growth market is overwhelming as research from top tier analysts and industry observers has clearly established. The Saugatuck Technology 2012 Global Cloud Business Software Survey: Data Report affirms this trend citing that the preference of deploying on-premise new business software will decline from 50% to 18% by 2014. The report’s data suggests rapid and massive Cloud use growth from 2014 – 2016.
As clients consider a new system or their next system upgrade, ASA is experiencing this same trend away from on-premise software. ASA has got out in front of this growth market and are riding the popularity of Cloud-based business software, and continue to adjust their business models and strategies to this new reality.
“As our customers look for ways to meet their complex and expanding IT demands and live within budget constraints at the same time, we expect continued growth of our Cloud hosting services”, said Scott Hopkins, vice president of operations at ASA Automotive Systems. “ASA’s Cloud Strategy provides speed and simplicity for our clients. Besides our powerful technology platform, Cloud infrastructure and data center services, ASA’s highly experienced, customer- focused operations team keep us incredibly well positioned to serve this market and maintain a leadership position for many years to come."
