Cut IT costs with Phase 2

One of the hot topics in the IT community is software as a service (SaaS). With SaaS, you can manage customers' information and data remotely on a pay-as-you-go basis. SaaS cuts costs. Anything that addresses the bottom line in this economy is going to pique the interest of IT executives.

Phase 2 International has launched its Online Savings Calculator. It's available to any company worldwide. The timing couldn't be better, given the global economy. Phase 2 allows businesses to meet many software needs through a subscription process. By subscribing to software rather than owning it, you save big-time.

One of Phase 2's more popular offerings is Microsoft's Visual Studio Team Foundation Server (TFS). Intended for collaborative software development, TFS is as good as it gets when it comes to project tracking, as well as data collection and reporting. It also allows you to effectively manage your Visual Studio projects.

When it comes to project management, TFS offers templates to make your job easier. Just one of many features attractive to businesses is the ability of TFS to integrate with Microsoft Excel for the creation and tracking of project items. Phase 2 offers some extra perks -- low cost, tech support, and a 30-day risk-free trial. With no contract or user minimum, it's a bargain.

If you manage a small business with five employees or less, consider the Team Foundation Server Workgroup edition. It's user-friendly and affordable. Once your business grows, you can upgrade to the standard edition.

Phase 2 has a whole line of products that designed to meet your IT needs. Project Server Hosting offers an effective way for executives and managers to:

- control activities and finances
- communicate information in various formats
- schedule people and resources

Report alerts keep you apprised of potential problems. Phase 2 programmers can customize a package that enhances your company's efficiency and productivity.

SaaS is here to stay. It allows you to rent software instead of owning it. You save on software, hardware, and personnel. Phase 2 can offer IT solutions that help you stay within budget, get a higher return on investment, and position yourself as an industry leader.
