IMPLEMENTATION

Thanks to the flexibility of our software solutions and the advanced technology that ensures compatibility with other campus systems and programs, our products have been implemented at over 200 universities in 20 different countries!

Two implementation types are offered:

SAAS - HOSTED SOLUTION

The software and the database is hosted on a server and maintained by SOP. The server hardware, operating system and database system and the other system components are provided by SOP (ie, you do not need a local installation). You only need an internet connection and a web browser. Since support services for SaaS solution are much easier in implementation for both the customer and for our company, most universities prefer the hosted version. Usually, the data is hosted on our server in Austria.

INHOUSE - DATA HOSTING ON THE CUSTOMERS SERVER

The software is installed on a central server of the customer. Hardware, software and database system on the server are provided and maintained by the customer.
