EASY Archive in the Cloud: How Haufe-Lexware customers benefit
Haufe-Lexware and EASY SOFTWARE are bundling their strengths. The first joint project of the two partners began in the middle of this year: the Lexware Cloud Archive for small businesses. It has enjoyed growing popularity in its target group since its launch and has shown constant growth.
EASY SOFTWARE is a market leader when it comes to software solutions for the digitization and automation of document-intensive processes – be it completely classic “on premise” or from the Cloud. Haufe-Lexware is a market leader in commercial software solutions. The two companies are unified by their commitment to provide applications that allow more efficiency, guarantee the highest legal security and, at the same time, are easy to use.
The companies announced the development of a joint archive solution for small businesses at EASY WORLD 2016. No sooner said than done – the project received marketing release in mid-2017. Since then, EASY SOFTWARE has provided a powerful Cloud archive for small business clients of the Haufe Group.
700 customers gained – and counting
Acceptance is high. Just in the first three months, over 350 customers ordered the Cloud service. Since then, the number has grown to around 700 customers. And the upward trend is continuing. The reason is that small businesses benefit from the solution of revision-proof archiving of their documents and records as defined by the GoBD (German Principles of Orderly Accounting and Document Storage) on highly available EASY servers in Germany. All they have to do is install a client and select the directories to be monitored. These are preset; private directories can be specified in addition, which the system will archive as well. Once this is done, the Lexware Cloud archive automatically takes care of the unalterable archiving of the files, and documents their revision history. It supports all standard file formats.
More projects in sight…
This joint project shows that Cloud solutions open up new market segments. After all, without storage capacity on external servers, an “off the rack” solution like this would not be economical for most small businesses to operate. Only the Cloud allows conditions from which providers and customers can benefit equally. No wonder that Haufe-Lexware and EASY SOFTWARE have already agreed to follow-up with more offers.
