Why Ploud?

  • Lower Initial Costs / Rapid Deployment
    With Ploud as your content management solution, you can have your Intranet, Extranet or public facing Website ready to go live in a matter of weeks instead of months.
  • No Migration Costs / Immediate Upgrades – Ploud offers “versionless Plone”, allowing your company or organization to take advantage of the latest features and fixes to the software without the need to allocate the budget and resources to migrate to the latest version.
  • SAAS + Community Development – Ploud provides all the benefits of a cloud based solution without the risk of slow application improvements often associated with proprietary solutions. With Ploud, you get the best of both worlds!
  • Easy Transfers - Ploud enables consultants and others to work within Ploud and later assign ownership of the solution to their customers and organizations.  If your site requirements grow in complexity or you need expanded support, easily migrate to Enfold's high-availability hosted platform.
