Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Cloud and Software-as-a-Service?
Cloud and Software-as-a-Service solution is the same as they are specially designed in a way they can address a common management & Application needs with pay-as-you-go option for its subscription.
Other companies also offer cloud Solutions. What is different about WFX?
While everyone claims to be ‘cloud’ or a Software-as-a-Service these days, only few offer a true Cloud solution. Some repackage their existing software and just include “hosting services” to play off as a cloud platform, others place only a portion of the application online. In such cases the software's costs for its implementation, operations & upgrades are bloated and these charges are simply hidden in their monthly fee or in the setup costs. In addition, the implementation goes forever, their vendor hardly support for its installation and as upgrades are so painful and costly, the customer gets stuck into the current version for years.
Whereas, a true Cloud solution is designed to be multi-tenant & single-platform. Each customer carries a small part of the cost to operate the entire system and the efforts are applied to offer better functionality.

What if I am not satisfied?
The value of the cloud (or SAAS) delivery is that it drives solution providers to focus on bringing real value to their customers. The pay-as-you-go subscription means customers will only keep using the service if they receive the value they need. So beyond providing an feature-rich, easy to use and affordable solution, we have to show you real results to keep you as a customer.
Other companies charge millions for enterprise solutions. How can you offer an affordable product?
True On-Demand solutions are designed to be multi-tenant and single-platform, so each customer bears a small portion of the cost to operate the complete system, and the software vendor's efforts are applied to providing more functionality and value, not supporting each customer's unique implementation.
