The benefits of the cloud for business

Businesses large or small can all benefit from using the cloud. Seamlessly syncing between devices and users as well as allowing remote working, cloud storage is the secure answer to streamlining your working practices. Immediate access to any format of document means for no backwards and forwards with email attachments, simply click to open the file and amend as necessary.

Share and access data anywhere

One of the most significant positives of cloud storage is accessibility. Whether you are working in the office or remotely, you can upload and edit documents at any time. If you are working from home, you can have access to the relevant documents at the click of a button.

Even if you don’t have internet access, you can continue to work on your documents stored in the cloud, the changes you make will be automatically applied once you are connected back to the internet.

You no longer need to send multiple documents over email, reducing size or image quality to fit inbox restrictions. Simply upload to the cloud and it can be accessed at full capacity when required.

Designated access options mean data is shared only with those who have access. Files can be password protected and only available to the people of your choice.

Protection from hackers and hard drive failures

One of the biggest threats to businesses today is online hacking. Cloud storage offers encrypted protection against this, so your personal information and client details remain safe and secure.

Should your hard drive fail, it is essential you have back-up. Using the cloud means you no longer have to worry if your in-house database breaks down – or is physically destroyed in an event such as a fire. You may also choose to have your data on a hard drive, but the cloud can be your back-up.

Likewise, utilising business cloud storage means you don’t have to worry about break-ins at your premises should your data be targeted. As it is not saved on computers in your offices, your important information is inaccessible to criminal activity.

Reduced costings

Business cloud storage options saves your business money. Physical hardware storage is expensive and has big limitations. The cloud offers unlimited storage capacity which can easily be expanded when required at very competitive rates.

As cloud storage is continuously maintained, you don’t need to employ an I.T specialist to keep your data or platforms up to date – that is all managed by the cloud storage provider. Small businesses need to keep outgoings low – using cloud storage allows you to do that.

Your data is synced with all of the required updates by the provider, so you don’t need to trouble your staff to keep everything updated. Since cloud storage platforms do all of the programming and de-bugging for you, you can save valuable time and money which previously would have been spent on I.T maintenance.

Ease of use and increased company organisation

Technology can be difficult, and some colleagues can find keeping up-to-date with programs challenging. The best business cloud storage is user-friendly and intuitive to work with.

It makes uploading and editing documents simple, with a clear trail of who has edited it. It also allows for mistakes to happen – there is no need to panic if something is deleted – the cloud has the backup and it can still be accessed (often within a two-month timeframe).

Getting your administration up to date is a breeze, as small business cloud storage options allow for streamlining processes like payroll and accounts by having them all in one place. Our system allows for off-line working with instant auto-sync once you are back online – so it doesn’t even matter if you don’t always have an active internet connection, you can still get on with your work.

Members of the same team can instantly have access to the files required to complete their work. By organising project documents onto one platform, users can work on information simultaneously and see how their colleagues are doing, too.

Flexibility, scalability and security

Another benefit of using the cloud, including Microsoft business cloud storage, is that it is entirely flexible to suit the size of your business and storage needs. Whether you operate on Windows, iOS or Android, the cloud can work for you. In fact, it can even switch between operating systems – for example, data can be linked between an iPad and an Android phone effortlessly.

You only pay for what you require, which can easily be added to at a later date; likewise this can be scaled down if also needed. You pay on a monthly basis which is priced competitively and covers all maintenance, assistance and management of the data.

Cloud storage is the most secure type of digital storage as it is encrypted. By choosing a reputable cloud storage company you can be assured that your data is protected, kept confidential and backed-up at all times.
