Cloud computing is a simple way to increase your productivity, expand the ways you collaborate, and make your entire business more efficient. No matter what your business model you will likely find yourself reaping significant benefits. Today we are talking about just how cloud computing is saving everyone money.
Moving to the cloud means less equipment to maintain or to purchase. Depending on the size of your business, the compounded savings over time is likely no trivial amount. Installations, upgrades, support, maintenance, power usage, and physical space are all no longer your concerns.
Collaboration is faster as you will be placing more of your resources and documents into a shared cloud environment. Some find it easier to just move everything there at some point. Access limitations can be put in place to restrict and monitor access to files so only the right people will have the right access to documents and any limitations can quickly and easily be lifted or modified whenever necessary. Increasing productivity and encouraging efficiency is obviously going to be good for any business.
Access from various platforms including mobile devices, means that business owners can manage their business from anywhere, at anytime, with added flexibility and control. Some businesses even get rid of company computers entirely and require their employees to use their personal computers only. Meaning all that cost has been saved. No hardware costs, and better, faster, access to what is necessary.
Security and Reliability
If you pick a dependable host for your cloud services you can expect higher levels of security and a near perfect uptime record. Look for one like ASPnix that offers 24/7 support. They boast of a 100% uptime guarantee and a 30 days money back guarantee. You want to make sure that the access you need is always available and that if something happens that you have a way to get it fixed in a timely manner. Stick with one of the companies that has these kind of services and you should do great.
Take the first step
Getting there isn’t as cumbersome as it seems. You won’t need a big IT department and the learning curve is not at all steep. Getting yourself set up is pretty easy depending on the company you choose. ASPnix for example has this service starting for $10 a month as their base price and if in thirty days you aren’t happy with it you can ask for your money back. Also, there isn’t any contract. Meaning you can get your services one month at a time without ever making a commitment. It doesn’t take much effort, costs nothing if you are dissatisfied, involves no commitment, and their support team does most of the work for you. What do you have to lose?
