Low Cost of Ownership
While Ostendo is a client server programme that runs on premise on a server, it is an affordable cloud solution when run on a cloud server or Terminal Services.

Compared to a web based SaaS ERP system with an ongoing subscription, Ostendo installed on a cloud server is much less expensive and therefore much more affordable for small to large businesses.
The average monthly cost of five licences of Ostendo installed on a cloud server at $AUD300 per month is $AUD500 per month, or $AUD100 per user per month. This includes the annual Ostendo licence renewal fee. A cloud server has the added benefit of being able to accommodate Microsoft Office 365, other applications, file storage and the ability to backup your data, which a web based SaaS ERP system.
