Host your Leading Hand on a secure private server

Free setup Free support  No contracts

Endorsed by 

All you need is an Internet connected device.  Windows PCs, Tablets, MACS and Android are all supported.

Habitat3 provides a full Remote Desktop Server within our Private Cloud environment to allow you to host The Leading Hand as well as linked accounting software like MYOB or Xero for a fixed monthly subscription.


Unlimited Server based support: We provide free ongoing support to ensure your cloud server is maintained and functioning as required at all times. Our premium support is our key differentiation in the market.

Security, Privacy and Data-Sovereignty: We store your data within an independent cloud server (not shared) within our  secure ISO accredited DataCentres all located within Australia - all your data remains on your own server in Australia at all times.

Backups: Full server backups are completed every 24 hours and 14 days history is retained.  There is no extra charge for these backups.

Offsite Backups: We are also able to send a complete copy of your full server backup to a second data centre each day.

Disaster Recovery cloud server replication: In addition to offsite backups, we are able to synchronise your full server to a second data centre every 15 minutes to allow you to 'failover' to the second data centre if the private data centre stops functioning.

Anywhere-Anytime access: You can work from home or while travelling, facilitating the ideal work-life balance.

MS Office integration: Seamless integration between The Leading Hand and your email and other MS Office applications.

Flexibility: Use the service, add or remove user accounts, storage and MS office licenses month to month. There are no lock in contracts at Habitat3.


Our pricing is based on a per user account per month basis - a monthly subscription.  You would typically need as many user accounts as you have different staff who need access to the system at the same time.
All you need is an Internet connected device to start using The Leading Hand on a private cloud server.  This includes via 3G, 4G, ADSL and NBN.
We provide a free setup and data migration service to ensure downtime is minimised.  We upload your database via the Internet overnight and in the morning you are ready to start using your private cloud server.
Habitat3 cloud servers are perfect for small start-up workshops as the pricing is very flexible.  Cloud servers are also great value for multi-site firms accessing a central system from many offices due to the scalability and flexibility of the technology.

BigWheels Truck Alignment Centralises National Franchise Group 


"We have worked with Habitat3 over the last 12 months to create a centralised cloud server platform for our 18 store franchise operation to access The Leading Hand, MYOB Accounting, MS Office and Email. We have been impressed by their efficiency in onboarding our new branches onto the system as well as their general ongoing support. Their close relationship with AMPL Software (the developers of The Leading Hand) mean that that they can resolve any teething issues quickly minimising the impact on our productivity.  Their cloud servers provide reliable and fast access to our software and we would certainly recommend Habitat3 to those companies looking to move their existing software into the cloud.“
