The single biggest advantage that Insight has over the traditional web based software programs is that we are the only company that can offer you a choice without switching software. If you decide to go with one of our competitor’s online web based programs and you don’t like it or it is too slow for you (a very common complaint), all the information you entered is lost and you have to start everything over from scratch. When you choose the Insight on the cloud, if the experience isn’t what you hoped for, you can be switched over to the Installed version in a matter of minutes. Nobody else can offer you that.
Any software that is web based (written in Java or HTML like regular web pages) suffers from “lag” or slow response times. When you click on a link to go to a new web page sometimes it takes a few seconds (sometimes a lot longer) to load the page in your browser. When a client is standing in front of you wanting to book their next appointment or pay for their service, do you really want to click on a button and wait for the web page to load?
The technology that Insight on the cloud uses is not the same as HTML web based programs. You will be running the exact same Insight software as the Installed version and you will be running it from incredibly fast and powerful computers capable of running large Fortune 500 companies. The only information being sent over your internet connection is what is shown on the screen so when you click on something you get virtually instant responses. In our tests, Salon Cloud actually responds faster than the Installed Insight because our servers are 10-20 times faster than an average PC.
Web based software is designed to have thousands of users all running off one server computer. Even the largest web based software providers only need a few servers to manage all their users. The problem this presents is when one server goes down, you could be without access to your data or, at the very least, suffer from huge delays in your access times.
Insight on the cloud is different because we only have a very small number of users accessing each server computer and dozens of servers available. If one server goes down, the users logged in to that machine would just need to log back in, at which point they would be directed to one of the other servers. We use what is called “load balancing” to ensure that each server has the same workload placed on it to ensure a fast and enjoyable experience for our users. As we add more users, we add more servers so you will never see a dramatic drop in response times.
