For immediate release
Author-it Software Corporation Announces the Launch of Author-it Cloud
Beta trials met with absolute acceptance by clients
December 14, 2011
San Jose, California
Author-it Software Corporation (ASC) today announced the launch of Author-it Cloud, a major breakthrough for enterprise content authoring. Author-it is well known as the world's only end-to-end Enterprise Authoring Platform, and now the platform is available as Software as a Service (SaaS), "On-Demand" with Author-it Cloud.
The many advantages of working on the Cloud will transform the way companies write, manage and publish content for complex documentation. "The economic advantages are so compelling that we believe it's just a matter of time before most companies will transition to a Cloud approach" said Paul Trotter, Founder and CEO of Author-it Software Corporation. "The Client's upfront costs are significantly reduced because there is no software to install or hardware to buy."
The immediate economic benefits of the Author-it Cloud Enterprise Authoring Platform are just the start. Beyond these, Author-it believes additional benefits will also be realized by companies as they use the service:
- Clients can deploy the Author-it Cloud service very quickly when compared with other On-Premises technologies that need substantial amounts of time for hardware and software preparation and setup before deployment.
- The flexibility of the Cloud model allows Author-it Cloud clients to scale their service as their needs change.
- Author-it Cloud clients have the ability to work anywhere, anytime; all they need is a Browser and Internet connection.
- Because the Author-it Cloud service is maintained by ASC, clients enjoy the benefits of reduced through-life IT costs, and always using the latest updates to the service.
Author-it will continue to support its traditional On-Premises software for clients who prefer it. "We believe that Author-it Cloud is the future but acknowledge that some clients may be unable or unwilling to take the step to the Cloud just yet" said Trotter. "We are committed to supporting our clients regardless of the option they choose".
