If your organization prefers not to manage their own computer center, using an
Application Service Provider (ASP) is an excellent alternative. The ASP supplies
the servers and technical support for the equipment, software and operating system.
Our system architecture represents a new approach to web-based computing.
While the applications run over the Internet, they are very thin and browser-independent.
Instead of experiencing the frustration of slow network responses and user interface
limitations of the browser, users can now enjoy full featured programs, with the
familiar Windows look and feel.
The ADL applications are completely TCP/IP based and can be hosted locally
over a remote server. All that is required is a secured TCP/IP connection
to the server.
Advantages of Hosted services are:
No need to purchase expensive computer equipment and build a data center.
Simple high speed Internet connection or dedicated phone
line is all that is needed to connect your organization's PCs to the hosted
servers. The details of the installation are handled by
the ASP whose technicians have experience managing these systems.
Lower Operational Overhead
The ASP creates the backups and applies the needed software updates. You are assured
that your data is backed up and available in the event of a major system failure. Your
computer staff are able to concentrate their efforts on the end users and
organization's processing needs.
The ASP provides technical support for networking and hardware questions.
The users have a help desk that they can contact to assist them in solving local
computer problems. Any problems with the ADL software are normally resolved between
the ADL technical staff and the ASP.
ADL partners with several ASP's each with extensive experience supporting
and managing computer and software for hundreds of nursing homes and
long term care facilities in the US and Canada.
