Charter Provides Top Security and Speed to Customers by Moving their Cloud Service to Azure

Charter CloudLittleton, CO, April 26, 2021 – Charter Software Solutions, leading industry-specific dealership software vendor in North America, is happy to announce that it will be moving its ASPEN Cloud service to Microsoft’s Azure platform. This move to the Microsoft-backed platform will increase both the speed and security of Cloud for customers.

The move to Azure offers some major benefits to Charter customers, including:

  • Reducing the risk of losing data, thanks to Azure’s reliable data storage
  • Saving time on software updates, hardware maintenance, and data backups
  • Reducing reliance on and cost of IT, thanks to new added computing resources provided by Azure
  • Recovering data, should something go wrong with a customer’s system, thanks to Azure’s more reliable system

How you access ASPEN Cloud will remain the same – all you require is a good internet connection and a Windows PC.

“We are investing heavily to improve your experience,” says Muthu Kannan, Director of Product Delivery at Charter. “Moving to Azure will give us access to best-in-class infrastructure resulting in better reliability and faster speeds.”

Charter is working hard to minimize disruptions to current ASPEN Cloud users during this migration. Customers can expect communications from the Charter team throughout the process.

ASPEN customers who don’t currently use Cloud are encouraged to reach out to their Account Manager to learn more.
