Cloud computing benefits

Cloud computing is nothing more than storing and accessing data—and programs—over the internet rather than on a computer's hard drive. Think about the social media platforms and email service that you use—they're not stored on your computer, you access them over the internet. A cloud-based solution is hosted on the provider's server and maintained and updated by them as well.

Why should you consider a cloud-based business system?

 

With a cloud-based system you get:

  • Increased productivity through the ability to access your software (and business) from any computer or tablet with internet access, anywhere, anytime
  • Cutting-edge software that is always current and requires no manual updates
  • Real-time data which facilitates better business planning and quicker decisions
  • Data that is automatically backed up at no additional charge
  • Increased security since your data is hosted offsite, protecting it from natural disasters, fire and theft
  • An end-to-end business solution at one monthly price
 

What you don't get:

  • The requirement of a huge, upfront monetary investment—no servers or special equipment are needed
  • The obligation to invest in lots of IT personnel and data security measures
  • Manual software updates that cost extra and interrupt workflow
  • The necessity of data backup services or server maintenance

The beauty of cloud-based business systems is that they are simple to use and don't require a large upfront investment. This allows you to use your time and money more efficiently to grow your business rather than maintaining software and servicing equipment.

Cloud-based systems have brought a new level of opportunity to small and medium-sized businesses. It's the new frontier in business management and it's potential is just beginning to be tapped. Cloud computing is just one step in future-proofing your business and the benefits will only increase.
