Will Tourplan host my system for me?
Modified on 11 June 2015 12:14 PM
Tourplan offers a range of quality ‘fit for purpose’ hosting services for new and existing clients, designed to take the distraction out of the equation as far as the core Tourplan software platform and related B2B and B2C websites are concerned.
All hosting services are Tourplan-administered, which means that we take care of the server specifications, performance monitoring, data backups, disaster recovery, the integration of the various Tourplan platform components, and additional third party software (including installation and licencing).
Why would I want to use Tourplan Hosting Services for my Tourplan software?
How long will it take to set up?
The infrastructure required to host your Tourplan software is already in place, so depending on the nature and size of your project your site can be operational in a relatively short space of time. Tourplan implementation projects starting from scratch will need to take into account the usual roll-out requirements prior to ‘going live’ (for example database setup and system training), of which software installation and configuration are contributing components.
Your local Tourplan office will work with you to establish timeframes for your project.
What if I want to host with Tourplan but administer my own platform?
Server level administration requires specialist IT skills, for example server configuration (including security and access aspects), software setup, and performance monitoring. For our hosted services we restrict access to these functions and do them on your behalf. At any time you are welcome to transfer your site or software to your own or another hosted environment and take over the administration. We do not offer hosting-related support for self-administered sites.
