Move To The Cloud
“I’ve experienced this pain personally. Dealing with end users that call about a bug that was fixed and released six months ago, only to learn their IT department deploys updates only once a year.

That eliminates discussion about “rolling out the new release” as the product is always up-to-date.” – Dave Todaro, Ascendle
