It’s Always Current
Don’t worry about having to pay for expensive upgrades, or whether your software capabilities will fall behind your competitors. With a cloud programme, you will always be operating on the most up to date version.
But here is the greatest part. Even though you will be running the latest and greatest in software, you don’t need to outlay thousands on computer hardware to support it. Most cloud systems will run on a standard, no frills laptop or device.
It’s Available On The Go
If you are out of the office and you need to check something, it is really hard to do if you aren’t in front of your paper files. But with cloud software, you have access to any information you need right there in your pocket or handbag. Yep, just whip out your phone, tablet or laptop and have all the information you need right at your fingertips.
You know that sinking feeling when you realise your hard drive has just been wiped, or you lost the piece of paper that you scribbled your million dollar idea on? That feeling goes away when you utilise the cloud. You know all your information is securely backed up and easy to find. While no software is perfect, most cloud based programmes promise more than 99% of up time.
It is really hard to cut storage costs, or to scale back on your stationery spend when you have physical filing to maintain. But online options often have a sliding pricing scale so you can increase or decrease your package depending on your current needs. That means you only pay for what you are using, and nothing more.
It’s Friendly To The Environment
Once 7 years have passed and you no longer need to keep a copy of those financial records, where do they go? What about those old filing cabinets, or the binders with the broken clasps? They have to go somewhere to be recycled or dumped. Then there is the drain on our forests because of the constant need for paper.
Cloud based software has a very small carbon footprint. We only get one earth, so it is important to maintain sustainable business practices and do what we can to protect our environment.
There you have it. Our top reasons why cloud based software is the best option for your business.
