One Software, Two Options

We understand that all organisations are different and each has their own requirements and needs. To support this diversity, the Pulse-App software can be licensed in a number of different ways, depending on how much control and set-up you want. PulseSolo and PulseCloud are our main license models. Please read on to find out what these options mean for you and your organisation.

PulseSolo

PulseSolo gives you maximum control over all aspects of the Pulse-App software.  We supply you with the necessary back-end software services and databases and your ICT Manager with help and support as required, install them on your organisations systems.  You have total control of the software system and the databases that drive them.

This option is ideal if you want maximum control and the ability to automate the process of publishing notices.  It is also more cost effective, as you are not paying for external cloud based storage, but equally, you are responsible for maintenance and updates. Finally as all data is maintained within your organisation you are fully responsible for all Data Protection considerations. All training is offered as standard for your staff, students and if required, parents.

PulseCloud

PulseCloud allows you to take advantage of our dedicated cloud server storage.  With this option, we provide you with an individual Microsoft Azure server that we have pre-installed and configured the whole Pulse-App system on.  Our Azure servers are provided by Microsoft with the assurance that all data is maintained within the EU (a key factor in Data Protection legislation).

This option is ideal for smaller organisations who may outsource the ICT management of their internal computer systems, or those who want to get up and running quickly. This option is also very scalable as both licensing and resources can be quickly adjusted. It is also ideal for help and support, although we will never access your data unless you give us clearance in instances of problems, support and maintenance.
