Suffice to say that buying a desktop based system in 2023 is somewhat akin to buying a DVD Player to watch a film. Technology has completely overtaken legacy systems that rely on on-premises hardware and software and the world has moved on significantly.
We are all too aware that Cloud systems offer the most up to date solutions around security, storage, access, convenience and price, but one of the key areas of added-value that comes from the Cloud is around seamless updating and optimising of your software.
With an old-fashioned desktop solution the software that you buy can become outdated quite quickly. Technology moves fast and there are constant improvements in speed, efficiency and ease of use that desktop software is not able to exploit in any time or cost-effective way.
A Cloud-based system becomes a genuine game-changer in this respect. Much like Trigger’s Broom, a Cloud system is continually renewing and updating itself - so the system that you subscribe to today will become even more powerful, more secure, and more feature-rich with every passing year that you own it.
This investment in continual improvement is invaluable for any modern practice seeking to embed quality and efficiency within their business.
When you buy a high quality solution like Aerona, you are not only getting a system that will transform your business and save you time & money across a whole range of core and clinical functions, but you are buying a product that will get even better with every new release!
Aerona is upgraded and optimised multiple times each year, to deliver the very latest security updates, fastest possible performance and to roll out key new features such as our teledentistry tool Connect & Consult; our Design & Sign digital signing tool; or 1-Click Treatment Planning.
The new release process is simple and largely unnoticed by users, with new features appearing seamlessly after an overnight roll-out and appearing live in the system. With a dedicated series of online webinars and user guides all accessible through our Knowledge Base, users are supported to get the most out of any new functions at the earliest opportunity.
And the benefits do not stop there. Cloud-software delivers the scope and flexibility for user requested improvements to be engineered into the product, provided there is a sufficiently strong rationale.
Over the last number of years, significant improvements and enhancements to Aerona have been user-led, putting the power for practical change firmly into the hands of our customers.
After all, you are the people that are using the system all day every day.
Of course, some users worry that changes and upgrades might affect their favourite features or the everyday operations that they carry out, but the incremental improvements that the Cloud allows - with change generally coming little and often - mean that the best products simply evolve with you, rather than changing dramatically.
It is a truism in business that if you are not moving forward, then you are moving backwards and the same applies to your practice management software.
The right software will drive your business forward and help you to lead innovation across your practice.
In this context, a Cloud-based system is really the only show in town.
Cloud-based software is the industry standard for consumer interactions from banking to online shopping and is now the norm for all modern business management software - from your accountancy package to your ordering procedures.
You wouldn’t dream of renting a DVD to watch this weekend, so why would you trust your entire business to a legacy software solution from the same era?
