Cloud Services: A Better Way to do Business
Mon Mar 15, 2021
Technology evolves quickly, and with those evolutions come both new opportunities for businesses, as well as confusion about what new technology does. Cloud services are one of those new technologies that produce both excitement and skepticism for some organizations. Let's take a look at the world of The Cloud.
What is the Cloud?
The cloud is something we talk about a lot these days, but it's a rather elusive term. Simply put, cloud services run via the Internet rather than locally on your computer. So, if you save a spreadsheet to the cloud, that means it is saved in an internet-based service instead of in a file on your desktop. It can then be accessed from pretty much anywhere, by anyone who has access to your cloud storage.
Why Use the Cloud?
Because so many businesses do their business on the go, portability, and remote access are important. Utilizing cloud storage allows employees to easily get the documents they need when they need it. Perhaps an employee is working with a customer on-site, and the customer wants to read over plans or other pertinent documents. If those documents are in the cloud, the employee can share or print those documents immediately.
How Can I Make the Most of the Cloud?
For many organizations, moving towards a more paperless office offers numerous benefits ranging from cost and space savings to increased productivity. Storing electronic documents is easy with the cloud. In addition, using cloud storage makes remote access easy, makes sharing simple, and makes workflows more efficient. Managed IT services and document management services can make using cloud computing even easier.
