Here's how the Bell Business Apps Store works and what you need to know.
The Bell Business Apps Store makes it easy for you to find the right applications for your business. Choose from a wide variety of online small business applications to help your business be more productive.
Read detailed information on all of the features and benefits of each application, plus pricing for a range of editions. We also offer user reviews, five-star ratings, and the ability to compare features and pricing with similar applications.
The Bell Business Apps Store provides access to web-based applications made by a variety of highly respected vendors from across the globe. Bell carefully selects best-of-breed apps based on security, usability and overall value in meeting the demands of your business.
Once you find an app you want to use, purchasing it is simple. Buying apps for your business is done on the basis of subscriptions per user, with no upfront costs or installation fees whether you're paying for one employee to access an app or 50 employees.
In short, you no longer have to deal with software licenses. With the Bell Business App Store, you're never locked in to a contract, and you only pay for what you use. This lets you try applications for a short time before rolling it out to all employees. It also gives you the option of using a particular software tool for a limited time to complete a specific project. Plus, because you receive a single monthly bill for all your subscriptions, billing is predictable and you can better manage your company's cash flow.
The management of applications that your business needs just got a whole lot simpler. Here is how you use software from the Bell Business Apps Store:
- Administrators control all apps through a single web-based dashboard, including managing all application subscriptions and assigning specific apps to individual employees and or teams.
- Employees access their apps through a single password and get a customized app dashboard based on their role in the company.
Keeping software updated and working properly doesn't need to occupy the time of your IT staff. The applications in the Bell Business Apps Store are all web-based, which means they work on any PC or Mac, regardless of the operating system, and the apps are all verified for how they integrate with existing systems. All you and your employees need is a web browser and an Internet connection.
With no software to download, there is nothing to update, upgrade, patch or maintain - it all happens automatically. When users sign in, they will see whatever new features the developers have rolled out. You'll have the latest versions of applications, and won't have to face costs of buying, maintaining or upgrading software anymore.
With the Bell Business Apps Store you can rest easy knowing your company data is hosted in highly secure SAS70-compliant data centers with fully redundant back-ups.
At the same time, you retain control of your information: administrators can export all data to any hard drive or server, import it into other applications, and adjust permissions to specify which employees can download data.
