Question on web subscription for apps

237 Views
Last Modified: 2016-09-20
We have been approached to consider mobile apps for sales, inventory, etc.  The data reside on the cloud and the apps itself will reside on the mobile devices and the back office on the cloud.  This is new to us and wanted EE opinion on the Pro and Cons in the subject.  As we see, if we purchase the apps to install in our system, we pay one price and optional yearly support.  If we purchase the web subscriptions, the first year is low pricing but projecting the next 5 years the cost almost triples.

Question:
What would be the Pros & Cons of web subscriptions?
What consideration should we take in account in order to help us evaluate an aligned choice?
