“I remember years ago when I was reviewing VOS as an alternative to buying another expensive server upgrade. When I saw that VOS gave us all the resources we needed and we didn’t need to worry about backups, upgrades or server maintenance- it was clear that it was the best solution for our Healthcare facilities. VOS has been great not only for cost savings but also for freeing up resources so we could better serve our residents.”  ~Tammy, CPA
