Saas (hosted) or Traditional installation, your choice
With the Flowan Patient Relations software you have the flexibility to choose where you want the software installed. Your installation options are either utilizing the Flowan hosted SaaS (Software as a Service) environment or choosing the traditional (local) installation option.
The Flowan SaaS (hosted) installation option offers you the following advantages:
- Utilizing the Flowan Patient Relations software without having to worry about the initial installation of the software nor upgrading the software when new releases are available
- Frees you from dealing with operating system upgrades or database technology upgrades related to the Flowan Patient Relations software.
- Flowan takes on the responsibility of ensuring that your data is backed up and that the software is available 24x7.
If you select the traditional (local) installation option, Flowan will assist with the initial installation and set up of the Flowan Patient Relations software. Once installed, your IT department takes the responsibility for upgrading the Flowan Patient Relations software and backing up your data.
With the traditional installation option, Flowan offers a unique service where a qualified Flowan technician performs the Flowan Patient Relations software upgrades remotely on your servers. This service is very cost-effective and, by leveraging the expertise of the Flowan technician, ensures that your upgrade is completed with minimal downtime. Please speak to your Flowan Sales Representative to get more information about this unique offering.
