What is OLABI Managed Cloud Services?

Managed cloud services refers to having your retail IT Hardware infrastructure and retail applications hosted on the internet (in our case – at Amazon Web services (AWS)). This managed delivery model relieves you of IT management and ensures anytime, anywhere availability of retail IT services.

What is SaaS?

SaaS refers to Software As A Service – Olabi retail applications platform runs on the cloud. You subscribe to the software, typically paying monthly subscription fees. You only pay for the service for as long as you’re using it, the application software is updated regularly and you automatically get these updates free of cost. You can cancel your subscription services at anytime. Another big benefit you get is the avoidance of one time capital expenditure for application software.
