Cloud technology is growing and spreading so fast that it can be hard to keep up with it all, everything’g going hosted, from a telephone system to document sharing. It can be difficult to identify how a cloud solution can benefit you as on paper it sounds quite similar to traditional on-site equipment. However, when you delve into the features and the way it works you can see that there are huge benefits that can be experienced in the long term as well as right away.

Benefits of cloud solutions include:

Resiliency – Hardware and equipment can go out of date quickly, and installing and setting up the latest equipment can mean down time and expensive costs. Whereas software can be updated online and automatically with minimal disruption. This future-proofs your system, so you have one less thing to think about, leaving you to focus on your business and your customers.

Super-flexibility – Cloud solutions are excellent for growing businesses or those with fluctuating needs, cloud capacity can be scaled up or down depending on your usage. Both individual user and site-wide features can be amended easily and some can even be carried out by an assigned company administrator.

Cost-saving – With most cloud solutions there is usually a small upfront cost and a monthly bill which can include all inclusive minutes. This abolishes the expensive hardware costs and installation fees, making an IT project look a lot less scary and easier on your cash flow.

Security and Document Control – With everything being in the cloud it means it can be accessed anywhere, from any device. So if a laptop or phone is lost the data can be recovered and then wiped remotely so no sensitive information can be seen by anyone. Documents can also be shared across multiple devices and accessed by different users, meaning that collaboration is more effecient and going from working in the office to home is easier than ever.
