e-Pak - Web Based Software
e-Pak is a secure web based solution that provides complete i-Pak functionality without a hardware investment. Ideal for any operation that does not care to support an in house server. A standard high speed internet connection (DSL, cable, wireless or cellular) is all that is required, as e-Pak is platform and network independent. The e-Pak solution provides an advantage by not having to deploy onsite hardware. Company's continue to user their existing printers for invoicing and reporting; as e-Pak works with most all standard PC's and printers. License e-Pak outright or pay a low monthly fee based on the number of users; both include customer support, software updates with securely stored and archived data.
Soft-Pak continues the infrastructure investment by the availability of a secondary on line data center in early 2010. Both data centers are owned, managed and supported by Soft-Pak; as we do not outsource our equipment, software or support. No expense has been spared, as each data center maintains redundant power, connectivity, storage, and replacement equipment on site. Soft-Pak has deployed the latest mirroring DR 'disaster recovery' software to ensure constant and reliable data backups in case of any emergency. Fast, secure and reliable; with hundreds of users around the world supporting their billing, routing, scale and fleet operations, e-Pak continues to deliver value.
Is your data secure on e-Pak..... you bet. All data access is securely controlled by the client, so only company management or authorized administration have access. Prevent data loss, secure corporate information and ensure a redundant operation..... all taken care of by e-Pak.
If you make a decision at a later time to purchase your own hardware and support your own infrastructure, migration to i-Pak is seamless. No retraining your users, no database conversions or awkward or unfortunate down times; let our internal support team know and the Soft-Pak team will migrate your data. In addition, Soft-Pak will apply one-half of your paid e-Pak fees towards the licensing of i-Pak, up to 50% of the i-Pak software license. Now that is running your business smart.... with investment protection!
The only difference between e-Pak and i-Pak is a decision on how you want to support the application. In today's world of accessible high speed internet and increased security, organizations have varied concerns that need to be addressed. Financial availability and internal resources are always a factor, however ongoing costs (both in time and required maintenance) need to be evaluated to make the right decision. Purchasing a server is one thing, but having a knowledgeable staff and the resources to support it while creating a disaster recovery plan are items that need to be addressed. Below is a list of questions that should be asked when considering what platform is best for your operations:
- Do you currently own an internal server and who maintains the hardware?
- Can your IT staff address additional hardware concerns?
- Is your data secure and do you have an disaster recovery plan?
- Is your data securely stored off site?
- Does your office support high speed internet?
- Do you require database access from home or do you support remote locations?
- How easy is it to incorporate additional sites and users?
- Are you acquiring or adding new facilities?
Soft-Pak created the e-Pak solution in 2002 when customers requested an affordable yet comprehensive operational software package. The continued investment in e-Pak has been significant, but so has the popularity.
