No. Placement Partner is password protected and is hosted on an encrypted secure connection which makes unauthorised access virtually impossible.
An unfortunate reality today is that a server, located in your office building, is far more likely to be stolen than someone gaining unauthorised access to your data via a secure connection.
Our servers, with your data on, are located in a high security data center and we keep the location of our servers strictly confidential.
How does the pricing structure work?
Placement Partner is charged on a monthly subscription basis, based on the number of users.
