Technology is moving fast. If you want your SWFL business to succeed, you need to stay technologically ahead of your competitors. Cloud computing is a great way to keep your business on the leading edge of technology. If you haven’t moved your business data to the cloud, here are 5 reasons you need to consider it.
Your SWFL business is no stranger to disasters. We have thunderstorms, flooding, hurricanes, power outages, heat waves, etc. All these things can cause serious problems with computer equipment. You could keep a server in your office, but this could cause problems if you run into any of the above disasters. Having your data stored in a cloud server protects you from localized events, and allows you to keep doing business, even when your office has been hit by natures fury.
Work From Anywhere
To excel in business today, you have to be mobile and have your head on a swivel. Things can change at the drop of a hat, and having access to your data anywhere will put you one step ahead of your competition. The cloud gives you that ability. Updates happen in real time across all of your devices, and you are in your office, or at a job site, or even home, you will always have the latest version, and the most up to date information.
Lower Capital Expenditure
Putting a network server in your office can be expensive. The equipment is not cheap, and the space it needs and the resources it uses all take money. In addition, this equipment becomes a taxable asset. Cloud technology turns servers into an off-site, tax-deductible service.
Using a cloud service will also reduce maintenance, repair and replacement costs as the servers and their corresponding equipment are not yours to worry about, but instead, a service that you are paying someone else to worry about.
Increase Ease Of Collaboration
Collaboration. Every team works best when they work as one unified body. When the right-hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing, there are problems. When you use cloud solutions for your business, everyone has the most up to date information. Changes happen in real time across all devices for everyone. This truly is a leap forward in collaboration that will increase productivity in ways you can’t even imagine.
Watching the news today it becomes evident that protecting your (and your clients) data is of utmost importance. Keeping that data in a cloud solution safeguards it from lost, stolen or damaged devices.
In addition, your cloud provider has access to better security protocols and active network monitoring that can detect and stop any intrusion before your data is compromised. Sure, nothing is 100% foolproof, but keeping your data in the cloud shows that you are doing your due diligence to keep your (and your clients) data as safe as can be.
