Here's how it works:

Instead of buying software and installing it on your desktop computer, you access the same software over an Internet connection. The INNOVIS host the software will usually charge users on a per-use basis or a monthly fee for unlimited use. When you want to use the software, you go to the INNOVIS's Web site, enter your login information, and start working.

Software rental offers several advantages.

The INNOVIS bears the burden of maintaining the software, installing all of the latest updates and bug fixes and making sure that everything works correctly. You don't have to worry about having the wrong number of software licenses, and you don't have to buy the same license regardless of whether an employee uses the software every day or once a month. As a result, an INNOVIS can help you manage your software costs more effectively.
