If you own a small to medium-sized business, you know how important information technology is to your company. As video meetings increase and more employees than ever work from home, the IT demands of your company are stretching far beyond simply being able to send interoffice emails.
You might wonder, what are the benefits to having a cloud computing system? Let’s take a look at the most popular reasons why companies are forgetting about clunky server rooms and moving their business technology to the cloud.
- The cloud allows for flexible working environments
- Cloud Security is Second to None
- Cloud Computing Systems Can Be Cost Saving
- There’s Less Startup Costs With Cloud Computing
- Document Control is Easier for All Employees
- Is the Cloud Right for Your Business?
Today’s world is no longer, arrive at the office at 9am, work until 5pm, and then go home. With global businesses spanning multiple time zones, and smaller businesses able to offer employees work-from-home options, flexibility is now a requirement.
Imagine your workers being able to login no matter where they are and send files and emails even while they’re at home, away from their desks, or even while waiting for a flight.
Cloud companies pride themselves on having backups for their backups. A cloud security detail could include backup servers as well as sophisticated encryption and other methods of keeping information safe. Keeping servers locally not only takes up office space, but any number of small problems could wreak havoc on the workday.
When was the last time you had to repair or upgrade your local system? Imagine no longer having to worry about updates or repairs at all, because your data is safe with a cloud computing system that will take care of everything. Cloud systems take the legwork out of the equation.
Starting a server room can cost tens of thousands of dollars, and that’s just to purchase the equipment. When you move your system to the cloud, the cloud computing company already owns all of the pricey equipment needed to maintain the network. This way you can stick to spending your startup capital on other parts of your business.
If you’ve ever emailed a document in progress back and forth with an entire team, you know just how tedious and confusing the process can become. No one remembers which version is the latest after a while and it’s anyone’s guess who made what edits.
But with the cloud, there could be just one document with edits tracked and recorded as well as a check out system to prevent two people from editing a document at the same time. The result? Easier document management and a lot less emailing.
