Hexagon Software has launched Hexagon Cloud, a new hosted platform for its housing management and finance software. Hexagon Cloud will enable users to review or update information from core back-office systems, such as viewing housing information, approving invoices or entering account transactions from any internet-enabled device.
Mitchell Hill, managing director, Hexagon Software, said, “Hexagon Cloud will enable housing providers to achieve administrative efficiencies and increase productivity while reducing the total cost of ownership.
“With no upfront expenditure and low monthly costs per user, Hexagon Cloud delivers greater, more cost-effective access to business intelligence and workflows to improve organisational performance while eliminating the technicalities surrounding the operating system, device or browser compatibility.”
Hexagon Cloud is a native cloud application that uses a microservice-based architecture so that updates and new features can be introduced to all customers as soon as they are released. It runs on a clustered container infrastructure providing elastic scalability and resilience, enabling customers to create new environments in minutes. OAuth authentication provides secure access to the application via Microsoft Office365 and most social media platforms.
Hill added, “Hexagon Cloud differentiates us from competitors with older, monolithic applications that require major upgrade projects to take advantage of any new functionality.”
