It is therefore vital that its systems are reliable and secure. After using the Sage 200 package, supplied by Birmingham-based leading business solutions provider CPiO, for the past two years the charity has now upgraded to the latest version of Sage 200 and decided to host the software with CPiO Cloud Services – the hosted managed service from CPiO. CPiO Cloud Services involves no upfront capital investment and all software and hardware upgrades, and patches, are included within the package. This removes the requirement for costly hardware purchases and provides the flexibility to grow the charity’s IT in line with the organisation, releasing valuable IT staff to focus on business critical tasks. A hosted managed service from CPiO helps minimise the risk to a business while maximising its efficiency. David Newton, Assistant Accountant for LIFE, says, “Improved accessibility and security are the two major reasons why we like CPiO Cloud Services.
The hosting service is reliable and translates well to employees’ home computers, meaning they can access information from anywhere.” “The external data centre means that our data is much more secure and can be managed better. The automatic updates are also very useful and the backup service provides reassurance that data won’t be lost. Also, if we have a power failure in the office, we can still access our network and valuable data.” James Bedford, Director of Infrastructure Services at CPiO, says, “The LIFE charity relies on services such as CPiO Cloud Services to ensure that its data remains safe and secure, and software updates are introduced with no disruption. This means they can concentrate on what they do best – providing care for the people that need it most.”
