Fidelity Investments, one of the largest investment firms in the world, recently released a report on the information technology sector that focused on three overall themes to look into investing in. Two of these themes were cloud computing and software as a service which are also two themes that form the basis of Scout’s business model.

In previous blogs we have discussed how cloud computing has certainly been a buzz phrase over the last few years. “To the cloud” was a popular advertising campaign for Windows 7 and many companies have went just there with vital aspects of their business. The article points out that “cloud computing will allow applications to be delivered from a remote data center over a network to a variety of personal devices – smartphones, tablets, and so on.” Since Scout’s topShelf inventory management software is cloud based you can do just that with our application. Our application works on those two devices but also barcode scanners and personal computers. With topShelf Scout promises our clients complete inventory control from any browser, on any device, at any time.
Software as a service is another theme that has sparked over the last decade running parallel to the birth of the cloud computing model. The article looks at savings from software as a service as being a gigantic selling point pointing out that “the shift from servers to services can provide tremendous cost savings in application development and maintenance to a variety of businesses.” We host all of our customers’ inventory data on our servers resulting in significant savings due to our customers not having to incur significant costs in server infrastructure and maintenance.
Scout has been an inventory leader as a software as a service for a decade and we are always innovating topShelf to tailor the needs of our customers better than before. In 2012 we have several new features on the docket that will truly make managing inventory easier than ever. To learn more about what is coming up or if you have any questions about our software as a service please do not hesitate to contact a sales representative at 651-964-3259.
