For companies that are thinking about getting new business software from an ASP (application service provider) but are hesitant to make the switch, now might be the time to act.

This is the time to do it because vendors are bending over backwards to attract potential clients, said Lise Dellazizzo, Canadian ASP program manager for IDC Canada, an IT market research firm.

The practice of accessing business applications over the Internet, rather than buying the software outright, is still relatively rare in Canada.
