Cloud Products for Businesses
Cloud-based applications have upended the way we used to do business and the multitude of ways in which we can interact employees and customers.
Saving and accessing files on the Cloud is easy. The Cloud can also grow and change as your business needs grow and change. Most applications that use the Cloud automatically update themselves. These are all good reasons to take your business operations to the Cloud. Here are a few common areas business typically migrate to the Cloud.
New technology has given many business owners and employees the ability to leave their home or business offices behind and create mobile offices so they can work from anywhere, at any time. This kind of mobility eliminates geographic challenges, and helps companies become nimble and more flexible. We can help you create an operational mobile office that allows you and your employees to work from anywhere by sourcing right mobile computer, getting reliable and secure internet connections and making your data accessible.
We can help you create a paperless office and digital document management system by scanning in hard copy files and creating a virtual file cabinet; managing finances, bookkeeping and budgets on your computer; taking meeting notes on your computer, or transferring them later on; and using electronic agreements. Once you create a digital document management system, you will have all of your paper documents accessible and searchable on your computer. And once those files sync to your online backup service, you can access them from anywhere, making your office truly mobile and paper free.
Whether you have in-house staff or a team in multiple locations spread across the country, the Cloud makes sharing data effortless. Once you have your data backed up to the Cloud, sharing files can be as easy as sending a link, eliminating the cumbersome process of emailing large files or saving copies on flash drives that are then mailed.
File Storage & Data Back Ups
The Cloud not only simplifies the process of backing up by allowing your data to automatically update as you work, but it also creates copies of your data off-site where it will be safe from any local natural disaster, theft or malfunction.
Most of the most common business applications are now using Cloud-based services. Microsoft Office 365 probably tops all of them as a more universal and most versatile way to communicate and collaborate. Many other can track sales, manage projects, creative design, automate e-mail communication and sales follow ups, manage and execute all accounting functions. Quite literally, there is a business application in the Cloud for nearly ever task.
You can use virtual phone lines and digital fax lines to create a telephone system you can bring with you wherever you go. This can help you run a professional and seamless business on the road or in multiple locations. The Cloud opens up a whole new world of low-cost unified communication capabilities Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
Unified communication means integrating all means of communications into a single system. Features can include such as instant messaging (chat), presence information, voice calls and voice mail (telephony), mobility features (including extension mobility and single number reach), audio, web & video conferencing, desktop sharing, data sharing (including web connected electronic interactive whiteboards), call control and speech recognition.
Real Time Software Updates
There is nothing that reduces productivity more than booting up your computer, only to find that there are a slew of operating system and software updates that need to download and install. With could-based software, as soon as the program is open, it is already updated.
Simply put, the Cloud makes things easier to control and quicker to implement — and at the end of the day, these are all things that promote efficiency.
