We are three weeks out from Scaling New Heights, and as promised, we continue to bring you more information from the speakers you'll see and hear if you are attending the show. Today we’re speaking with Phil Romine from Right Networks, a provider of application hosting.
IA: I believe most people in the space have heard of Right Networks, but for those who have not, can you tell us what your company does and what market segment do you serve?
PR: As an application hosting provider, Right Networks provides the benefits of SAAS based applications (anywhere anytime access, fully-managed service and cloud based collaboration) for full featured desktop applications without requiring additional training or technical knowledge from its customers. We primarily provide desktop accounting application hosting to Small/Medium Size Businesses and accounting firms in a secure cloud-based environment. We also offer hundreds of third party applications that integrate with accounting platforms allowing business to leverage the cloud to become more efficient and grow their business.
IA: Attendees have a lot of options when it comes to training at Scaling New Heights. What will you be teaching and why should they choose your sessions?
PR: Our session will focus on what benefits the cloud can provide to your business. The Cloud can provide greater efficiency to your business process by providing secure, reliable and transparent technology. Working in the Cloud means you don’t have to focus on IT issues and you can spend more time focusing on your business. Right Networks has enhanced their service to provide an improved end user experience. These enhancements enable our SMB and Accounting firms to maximize their efficiency by more effectively leveraging cloud based service.
IA: Will participants learn the advantages and benefits of being a Right Networks Company Partner during this session, without the "sales pitch"?
PR: We want to help our customers grow their business whether that means adding new customers or expanding their offering to their current client base. We know that our success is directly related to our customers’. We will be sharing ways that the cloud can help you take your business to the next level.
IA: What would be the ideal profile for someone attending your session? ie. -How many clients would they have? What type of clients would they have (manufacturing, distribution, retail)? Would they need to already have clients with a need that Right Networks can solve?
PR: Application hosting with Right Networks is a scalable fully-managed turnkey solution that can benefit any organization regardless of size. Our customers range from sole proprietorships with one seat to large regional firms with hundreds. Since we host the familiar Desktop versions of QuickBooks there is absolutely no learning curve making migrating to the cloud incredibly simple. Our session would be great to attend if you currently have questions about what the cloud has to offer and how you are able to leverage its benefits to expand your business.
IA: Trade shows are a big investment for vendors and attendees alike. What do you hope to gain from the investment you’ve made in being and exhibitor and a speaker at SNH?
PR: Scaling New Heights is our biggest and best show of the year. We hope to meet new folks interested in hosting their business applications, connect with our current clients to discuss all the exciting features we are adding daily and also to showcase our world class partners’ applications. We strive to ensure that the applications we host are best-in-class and we have found Scaling to be a great way to share our ecosystem with ProAdvisors.
IA: What are the 3 most important take away a ProAdvisor will receive from your session?
