Barloworld SCS goes for the cloud

Barloworld Supply Chain Software now offers all its software on the cloud.

Managing director Kevin Boake said: “Providing our support service and software solutions hosted on the cloud, as opposed to on the client’s own server and platform, means we can take on some of the strain from the business in maintaining the software and monitoring the data.

“Our software is essentially a ‘bolt-on’ solution for companies looking to improve their supply chains and when problems arise, more than 90 per cent of the time it is because the client’s IT department does not have the resource, time or knowledge to support it.”

Remote hosting in the cloud also means the system is monitored 24/7, backed up regularly and is highly scalable.
