The combination of Yocale and Azure enables these local businesses to run and manage their business from anywhere on any device, and be comfortable knowing that their data is accessible, always backed up and protected with enterprise-grade security. As their business grows, they don't have to worry about scalability or additional management costs.

Yocale knew early that they were poised for growth. The SaaS company's online scheduling software was a must for service-based businesses looking to take appointments from their customers. To be able to handle the enormous demand, Yocale concentrated on scalability, geographic redundancy, and performance. Yocale's focus on providing a secure, reliable environment for businesses to store their secure and private client and patient notes was also paramount in their decision to go with Azure. Yocale is a true cloud-based application in the way it utilizes the Azure hosting tools and services suite to its full abilities.
