Future Upgrades, Versions and Extensibility
With Protech Cloud Business Solutions you’re covered. With SaaS delivery, you get the benefits of a centralized infrastructure and a standardized application with upgrades, patches, and version releases all included in your subscription fee according to the terms of your agreement with Protech. Our technology experts take care of everything behind the scenes so you don’t have to worry about daily maintenance and upkeep, allowing you to focus on taking care of your members.
Flexible Deployment & Adaptable Configurations
Based on the needs of your association, you can choose to deploy Protech Cloud Business Solutions in one of two cloud options. A native cloud experience is best for associations that have limited or no IT staff on site, or those that require little additional development for the application, while a private cloud solution may be more appropriate if you have complex integrations and/or skilled development resources on staff. With either option, deployment is quick and easy with no hardware to set up and no software to install. The Protech Cloud Business Solutions highly configurable interface easily adapts to your organization’s business rules without costly modifications to the code necessary, which are necessary for most other customizations. Protech’s agile implementation strategy and plan will get you successfully up and running quickly, but correctly, without the project overruns common to on-premise solutions.
Predictable, Cost-effective Monthly and Annual Budgeting
With Protech Cloud Business Solutions, your association will benefit from fixed monthly pricing, or subscriptions, that allow for predictable monthly budgeting. The per user, per month subscription fees also give you the flexibility to scale up or scale down, on a monthly basis, according to the human resource demands of your association or nonprofit. There are no hidden costs or fees, no expensive on-premise infrastructure needs or software installations resulting in an overall lower cost of ownership. Here’s how it works:
Per User, Per Month Software Subscription
The per-user monthly subscription gives your association access to all member relationship management tools you need for your staff and leadership, including over 30 business solutions, access to guaranteed upgrade assurance and complete around the clock IT support.
