When investing in a new online booking system, you may question whether you need a cloud booking software or a local system. With more things moving to the cloud, it makes sense for any booking process to follow suit. 

There are many benefits of opting for the cloud. Here we’ll explain how BookingLive’s cloud booking software works and its benefits.


Cloud booking software hosting with AWS 

BookingLive’s cloud booking software delivers its services through Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS provides cloud computing platforms and APIs to individuals and companies in the public and private sectors. The cloud web services work via AWS server farms.

Cloud hosting is designed to make cloud booking software and other web applications scalable and simple to use. It provides BookingLive with complete control of computing resources and lets us reduce the time required to autoscale our container clusters to manage load. In turn, we can quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as our computing requirements change.


Benefits of using a cloud booking software 

We use cloud hosting for the booking software as a way of delivering software as a service (SAAS) through the Internet.  As a business person, it means not having to install software, maintain servers, pay a hosting company, pay a developer, or pay high upfront capital costs. In general, our cloud booking software can offer:



Distributed hardware independent availability zones mean fewer risks of your booking system going into downtime.



Members of BookingLive use the same reliable system, and we also supply isolated clusters. This means that if something breaks we can fix it promptly. The cloud booking software is customised to your business needs. You can choose from a range of integrations to streamline your operations and automate admin tasks - so you can spend time doing the things you love.



A cloud booking software allows you to access your platform from anywhere in the world, at any time of the day. As you’re not restricted to physical locations, multiple team members can view and edit the booking software. This works particularly well during this wave of hybrid working. 



Cloud computing apps can grow very big very fast without affecting the performance of the system.  With no need to upgrade hardware or internet connections, your booking software is updated to provide the best possible service at any given time.



By offering a single booking system for many members, we can ensure that the system is rock solid for everyone.


Easier to maintain 

When we make an update to BookingLive, everyone benefits.  There is no need to install updates on individual machines.


Lower costs 

Cloud based applications like BookingLive don’t require an upfront licence, installation, set-up, or maintenance fees.
