Cloud computing can offer many benefits to your business. The cloud allows you to set up what is essentially a virtual office, allowing you to connect to your business anywhere, at any time. WestSpring IT have put together the following benefits to the cloud which we believe are most important for pushing your business forward.

Reduce Your IT Costs

Moving to the cloud is likely to reduce the cost of managing and maintaining your IT systems. You may be able to reduce your operating costs because:

  • The cost of system upgrades, new hardware and software will be included in your contract.
  • Lower people costs as you will no longer need to pay wages for expert staff.
  • Lower power costs as your energy consumption may be reduced.
  • There are fewer time delays.

Flexibility

Cloud computing allows employees to be more flexible in their work practices. This is because they are able to quickly and easily access data from anywhere (with an internet connection) whether it be from home, on holiday or on the commute to work.

Collaboration Efficiency

Collaboration in a cloud environment gives your business the ability to communicate and share more easily outside of the traditional methods. If you are working on a project across different locations, you could use cloud computing to give employees, contractors and third parties access to the same files.

Scalability

Your business can scale up or scale down your operation and storage needs quickly to suit your situation, allowing flexibility as your needs change. Rather than purchasing and installing expensive upgrades yourself, your cloud computer service provider can handle this for you. Using the cloud frees up your time so you can get on with running your business.

Future-Proof Your Business

There is unprecedented demand for access to data anywhere, at any time on any device. Don’t let your business fall behind. By embracing the cloud, you can handle emerging trends.

Other benefits include:

  • Store, back up and recover data
  • Create new apps and services
  • Host websites and blogs
  • Deliver software on demand
  • Analyse data for patterns and make predictions
