Currently their Software as a Service (SAAS) financing plans allow companies to outsource entire software infrastructures at for a low monthly cost, helping reduce resources such as full time administrators, hardware and network systems.

With the current US economic status, reports of corporate conditions are showing a reluctance to spend excess money.

"There is a general mentality that businesses and people are just hunkering down," said Marti Kopacz, managing principal at Grant Thornton Corporate Advisory and Restructuring Services. Grant Thornton is one of the six global accounting, tax and business advisory organizations.

"They're going to spend less. They aren't going to be able to borrow," she said. "We're seeing a lot of companies right now trying to maximize the amount of cash they have on their balance sheet."

One way to maximize amount of cash that many companies have chosen is by reevaulating their IT departments and reducing resources by outsourcing software hosting to third party network service providers such as Alphalogix.

Alphalogix Network Services offers customers outsourced hosted solutions specializing in IBM software such as IBM WebSphere Portal 6.1, IBM Lotus Forms and other collaboration technology in the Lotus Suite. Alphalogix also provides 24X7X365 monitoring and support for other solutions including their Tasica brand of automated workflow solutions.

Currently, Alphalogix offers customers Software As A Service financing plan that adds up costs such as hosting, software licenses, hardware fees, support and services into one monthly price. Customers are able to receive their software licenses up-front without paying start up fees.

According to Bob McCandless, CEO of Alphalogix, “Many companies choose to host their software solutions so they can reduce the costs and challenges of running a full time administrator, maintaining hardware and keeping up to date with software. Alphalogix offers many different hosting plans to accommodate small businesses who do not have the resources to support a large IT infrastructure as well as large enterprise businesses who need constant support for their vast environments.”
