ALLENTOWN, PA--Oct. 8, 2013: MAM Software, Inc. , a leading provider of automotive business management solutions, has announced that its Autopart Online Software as a Service (SaaS) solution is available for use in the United States.

Autopart Online is a cloud-hosted version of MAM's established Windows-based application for distributors, jobbers and retailers. It offers the same point-of-sale, stock control and accounting functionality as its on-premise counterpart, but comes without the costly purchase and upkeep of in-house server infrastructure.

Rather than buying and installing software upfront, MAM's Software as a Service (SaaS) approach allows users to rent their business management systems on a flexible per-user basis. Instead of purchasing and maintaining expensive servers on their own premises, users connect to a state-of-the-art data center by means of a robust, enterprise-grade network.

Autopart Online is a fully managed service. MAM Software will update users' software when necessary, maintain the server hardware and ensure that customers' data is securely stored and backed-up. Thanks to its scalable infrastructure, implementation processes are streamlined and new users can be added with the minimum of fuss. The result is tailored software with potentially significant savings over locally installed alternatives.

Autopart Online is already widely used in the UK. Nigel Harvey, Managing Director at Brakeworld, explained the reasons behind his company's decision to move to the cloud: "Moving to Autopart Online seemed the logical next step, as it eliminates the need to maintain a server infrastructure here in our head office. It also provides the peace of mind knowing that all server maintenance, software updates and data backups are being expertly handled on our behalf by MAM Software – allowing us to spend more time on customer focused activities."

"We're thrilled to bring our latest SaaS product to the US," stated Mike Jamieson, CEO of MAM Software Group. "Businesses continue moving toward virtual solutions now that cloud hosting has proven itself as a trusted alternative to privately hosted environments. MAM has met this movement head-on and we look forward to helping more businesses take advantage of all the benefits the cloud has to offer."
