Benefits of working in the Cloud

Monday, July 18, 2016

Remember the days when we used to ‘dial up’ the internet, with the screeches and high pitched sounds whilst we did so? I think we can agree that the internet has progressed a great deal since those days; it’s faster and on demand, and with a lot less noise!

 The internet has come a long way, not least how we now do business over the internet every day without thinking about it; we expect it to be there. The improvements made in technology enabling faster internet speeds has also led to a change in the way we do business.

 Many organisations now see the benefits of working in the cloud:

  • 24/7 worldwide access to your data

Real-time business information accessible from any internet-enabled device. 

Are you at your bank, accountant’s or notary’s office and need your financial results?  Are you visiting a customer and need a document or an invoice? That’s no problem whatsoever. As long as your computer, tablet or smartphone is connected to the Internet, you have immediate access to everything - wherever and whenever you want.

  • Secure and reliable

Highly secure, trusted reliability and no need for specialist IT knowledge.

“Is my company data safe in the cloud?” The answer is absolutely! And perhaps even safer than at your company. Your data will be stored in high security data centres, fully encrypted and under strict security. Moreover, both the provider and the vendor see to the management, the updates and the maintenance for you. You no longer need that IT knowledge.

  • Flexible subscriptions

Flexible, cost-effective monthly subscription – only pay for what you use.

With cloud software you know exactly what your costs are. You pay a fixed amount each month. Fixed and yet flexible, because your subscription grows along with you. Also when you grow in your specific sector. You can simply change the number of administrations and users for instance; or add apps, or easily grow towards a sector-specific subscription. That’s how flexible working in the cloud is.

  • Work together online

Conveniently work together online with your colleagues, partners, customers and your accountant.

 The cloud is an excellent place for people to work together and to store your data digitally. Cloud software helps you with this - the benefits of everything in the cloud; you have all your documents in 1 central place, save on physical archive space and are able to find everything quickly. That saves time and money, both now and later.

  • Reduce costs & add value

Working in the cloud can help you reduce your IT costs whilst also improving operational efficiency.

Cloud software can help you streamline your business, making it more responsive whilst drastically improving efficiency, offering an instance overview of every aspect of your business. Automate a range of manual tasks to save you time, effort and headaches.
