Office automation is slowly becoming a commodity, with the current broadband connections allowing for trouble-free remote application running. This is why OGD wanted to offer its customers the possibility of buying office automation as Software as a Service (Saas).OGD were looking for an advanced data center in the Netherlands that offered the best price/quality ratio. Other requirements included high availability and 24/7 technical support.
"Leaseweb offers great quality, but does not ask the highest price for what they provide. We do exactly the same thing."
