Enhancements provided by the cloud platform include scalability on demand, improved productivity and more efficient order entry functionality. Chief Technology Officer of AFS, Suhas Gudihal, spoke about the release, stating that "Using Microsoft AZURE tools to develop this solution provides built-in high availability and fault tolerance. Compatibility with Microsoft AZURE allows us to offer customers compelling benefits, including ease of access, dynamic scalability, and an option for pay-as-you-go pricing based on a true software-as-a-service (SaaS) model."
By using the functionality of the Azure Cloud platform, AFS Technologies was able to create a cloud-based version of its popular order management system, or Web OMS. The Cloud OMS provides businesses and customers with a way to access sales info remotely via the web.
