Online CRM Vs. On-Premise CRM
There are few well recognized on-premise CRM software solutions available in 2023, that is probably because it is so much less expensive to use a web-based CRM. When hosting your own on-premise CRM you need to pay for the servers, the upkeep, have a qualified person upgrade the system for you, you also need to worry about the security of the solution as well. On-premise CRM is more of liability than a benefit.
Cloud CRM Security Benefits
There are many benefits to choosing an Online CRM or Cloud CRM over an on-premise solution. One of the most under-rated benefits is the added level of security you receive when using a web-based CRM. Unlike on-premise solutions, the web-based CRM is managed by the CRM provider. They are responsible for the security of the system, and have the experience required to keep the solution secure and up-to-date.
It is much safer to use an online CRM by a reputable CRM vendor, than to download an on-premise CRM software and try to install it on your local network. When using on-premise software, the system is only as secure as your local network and chances are you do not have a 24/7 cloud security team monitoring your network.
