With no software or hardware to install, cloud computing has companies up and running and seeing a positive impact on their businesses in little to no time. Scalable, secure, reliable and affordable, cloud computing offers the simplicity and immediacy companies need to grow their business. Based on a pay-as-you-use model, companies have no upfront costs.

Cloud puts everything in one place and provides faster and more responsive service across every channel. Applications run on a shared data center based on multitenant architecture and are flexible enough for everyone to customize to their own specific needs.

Esker is one of the first software vendors capable of offering automation integrating the three layers of cloud computing - software, platform and infrastructure solutions. With over 50 percent growth in the past five years, these on-demand services are very popular with companies and represent 40 percent of Esker's sales revenue.

Why SaaS?

Esker believes SaaS is the appropriate model to facilitate the general and widespread use of document process automation solutions.

Instead of installing and managing software, you simply access it via the Internet. SaaS customers gain valuable automation efficiencies without the need to buy, build, and maintain IT infrastructure to support the technology.

 

Over the past decade we have developed the technology to offer a valued document process automation on-demand solution. More than 4,500 customers worldwide and 160,000+ users rely on Esker every day to automate key business processes.

What Esker SaaS solutions can do for you

Esker helps companies quit paper and streamline business processes. We offer SaaS solutions to help your company automate processes, reduce risk, increase competitiveness and improve performance throughout the order-to-cash and procure-to-pay cycles.

The benefits of SaaS

No up-front cost, no investment: SaaS customers avoid the high cost of implementing in-house applications. Rapid adoption: Internet delivery, high usability, and online help and training drive rapid adoption and high ROI value.


Fast deployment and flexibility: SaaS delivered over the Web eliminates installation. Continuous upgrades: Esker's agile development process and SaaS model deliver frequent functionality enhancements and upgrades are automatic and free for all customers.


Defined predictable spends: Because SaaS services operate on set fees per user per month, the costs are easily predicted. Low cost, low risk

The benefits of PaaS

Cloud computing includes platforms for building and running custom on-demand applications. PaaS provides the infrastructure needed to run applications over the Internet. Offering a faster, more cost-effective model for application development and delivery, PaaS facilitates the deployment of applications without the cost and complexity of buying and managing hardware, software and hosting capabilities. Customers simply use what they need without worrying about the complexity behind the scenes.


An automation rules engine enabling end-to-end automation of any document process. Security layers ensuring end-to-end document confidentiality.


Numerous web services allowing platform document submission and retrieval. Integration with most ERP systems, particularly SAP.

The benefits of IaaS

IaaS delivers computer infrastructure as a service. Equipment, including storage, hardware, servers, fax servers, fax boards, printing material and network components, is contracted out and customers buy the resources as a fully outsourced service and pay on a per-use basis. Esker owns the equipment and is responsible for housing, running and maintaining it.


With two data centers in the US and France, seven mail facilities in the US, France, Australia, Belgium, Spain, Singapore and the UK and three fax production facilities, Esker's mail, fax, email and SMS infrastructure handles 10 million monthly pages.

SSAE 16 and ISAE 3402 certified

The Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16 and International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE) 3402 certifications have become the new standards for reporting on controls at service organizations — essentially replacing the aging Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70) — and responding to the growing need for more globally accepted international accounting standards. SSAE 16, created by the Auditing Standards Board of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, is a new comprehensive and expansive approach to compliance reporting. SSAE 16 closely mirrors and complies with the first international service organization reporting standard — ISAE 3402. Developed to address the global need for third-party reporting standards, ISAE 3402 delivers a more unified and transparent reporting tool when reporting on controls at service organizations.

SSAE 16 and ISAE 3402 audits are in-depth analysis of a service organization's control over information technology and related processes. The audits are often required by public companies for regulatory compliance control and by companies that want assurance that a service organization's processes, procedures and controls described in the report are operating effectively. Successful completion of an audit indicates that processes, procedures and controls have been formally reviewed.

Companies rely on Esker to host and process their business documents and financial data. In order to guarantee information security and accuracy, Esker engaged in SSAE No. 16 and ISAE 3402 certified audit initiatives. These certifications assure our customers' auditors that Esker has effective internal controls to ensure the security of our customers' data. These include administration responsibilities, physical security and environmental safeguards, logical security, application development, change and incident management, and reliable computer operations (backup, monitoring, reporting, storage and system availability).
