OIG had several requirements since they only offer SaaS e-procurement solutions. First, OIG had to ensure their SaaS solutions are reliable and available 24X7 with no unplanned outages. “It is extremely critical for us to have a provider that stands behind us and stands behind the reliability of our SaaS offering,” says David Saroli, Chief Executive Officer for OIG.
Another requirement OIG must meet is PCI compliance. Being PCI compliant verifies that a merchant or payment processor has conformed to the security standards set by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC).
“It was very important to us to have a data center that was SAS 70 certified and PCI compliant. We also wanted a data center that had a great track record with reliability and service. We found this all at Online Tech,” says Saroli.
As OIG’s exclusive SaaS hosting provider, Online Tech delivers their entire SaaS hosting platform including fully managed hardware servers, 24X7 monitoring, operating system upgrades and complete management of any server issues that might arise. Each of Osiris’s servers are housed in one of Online Tech’s Tier 3 SAS 70, PCI compliant data centers.
As a SAS 70 data center, Online Tech has demonstrated their data centers have the proper controls and procedures around physical and network security, environmental controls, system availability, and performance and confirms that those controls and procedures have been followed consistently over time.
“As a Michigan-based company, we feel very strongly that it is important to do business with a Michigan company when we can. We found a great reliable service provider with Online Tech, a Michigan-based data center,” says Saroli.
