What are the benefits of cloud computing for small businesses?
Cost – First & foremost, cloud computing saves you money by lowering dependence on hardware, upgrade, installation, maintenance, and support costs. Having your own server can be expensive. Cloud services are relatively inexpensive and reduce unexpected maintenance bills. Pay-as-you go options make budgeting easy for small business.
Seamless collaboration & communication – Employees can create, upload, edit, & comment on the same master documents. Employers can restrict access to and limit what employee capabilities within documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and more.
Work from anywhere– Cloud computing makes it easy to manage your small business from anywhere, anytime. SaaS applications even allow your employees to access industry-specific software via the internet.
Managing Growth – With a variety of tiered plans for cloud solutions, you can pick what services your business needs. If the needs of your business or clients increase, it’s easy to rise up in the cloud.
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) – Employees can have the option to use their own devices (phones, computers, tablets), without risking your business’s security. Employers can limit employee device access without compromising employee privacy. And, if you should have to let an employee go, you can immediately discontinue their access.
Be More Competitive – Don’t allow your limited resources to limit your abilities, reach, or growth. With the lower cost of cloud computing, you’ll be able to allocate funds to your next big project or idea.
Integration – Whether you’re a one person show, or a business with many employees, cloud solutions for business will save you time & money while increasing your productivity & efficiency. And, perhaps most importantly, lowering your stress.
Reliability – Particularly if your servers or hardware are aging, cloud servers going to be a more reliable option for your business. If hardware breaks, it’s not your responsibility to fix it. Because your data is hosted on a variety of servers, downtime rarely becomes a factor.
Fewer Software updates – Many updates are done on off-premise servers which are maintained & updated by the cloud provider. Check that off of your To Do List!
Security, Encryption, & HIPPA compliance – Cloud solutions maintain high levels of security. Whether you’re an Accountant or Financial Planner who needs email encryption, a Doctor or Therapist who needs to maintain HIPAA compliance, or a small business owner who just wants to keep their information secure, the cloud has integrated solutions for your concerns.
