Why Host ATX in the Cloud Instead of the On-Premises Infrastructure?

Meeting the software and hardware requirements can help you get your software up and running, but it will have limited functionality. Implementing a cloud server, on the other hand, can add multiple capabilities to your software. Cloud hosting enables you to access your software from anywhere, collaborate with your team from remote locations, update files simultaneously, and obtain excellent performance on all your devices. When ATX is hosted in the cloud, you can efficiently prepare taxes on your smartphone, tablet, or low configuration computer.
