Is the Cloud Viable for Small Businesses?

The short answer: Yes.

We know you might be busy running your business right now or thinking about getting some much-needed sleep after running your business, but here is a longer answer, too. In it, you’ll see how the cloud can improve your business and give you more time for the things that are important to you. (e.g., Improving efficiency, eliminating the commute, golf).



Improved cost-effectiveness

If you’re running a small business, containing costs is likely to be a prime concern. Saving money by making efficiencies can be as good as making money. And it prevents that syndrome of pouring water into a leaky bucket.

Because we are IT people, we have IT solutions to such challenges. We know about cost-effective computing systems and services that can make your life easier and your business more profitable.

Note, however, that we don’t care about IT for the sake of playing with new gadgets. Our interest is in helping your business achieve its goals, faster, and more easily, through IT. We’ve discovered that the cloud is a cost-effective solution to multiple challenges that businesses face.


Improved focus

Using the cloud can remove the burden of buying and maintaining IT hardware and software.

With on-demand services, you only use what you need. And a dedicated team can take care of monitoring, updating, and maintaining the system.

All you have to do is use it. From anywhere. At anytime.


Better security

It’s understandable that you might be concerned about cloud security. How do you protect something you can’t see?

We start by encrypting the data, using an anti-virus, ensuring high-level authentication (great passwords), monitoring the system, and teaching your staff data protection principles. We understand and do all this so that you don’t have to.

Storing data in the cloud can be much safer than having the data on-site. And if you have any concerns about data loss due to cyberattack, theft, accidental deletion, or natural disaster, a cloud solution will allow you to store critical data off-site. You can access backups quickly, from anywhere. You can even re-install your systems using the cloud, from any location with an internet connection.


Increased flexibility

Cloud technology makes remote working easy and effective. You and your staff will be able to access the applications they need on any device, in any location. Work at the beach, at a café, while traveling, or at home.

You might not want to be contactable at the beach, of course, but then you can always turn off your phone.
