Up in the clouds

nacho-rochon-517487-unsplashThe last five years has seen a 36% growth in the number of UK businesses using cloud-based services and this is only set to increase. Cloud technology continues to improve and grow at a rapid speed and I think this is great news for small businesses.

So why is that great news?

The cloud has changed the way that we work, allowing staff to work remotely and contribute as if they were in the office. This means that a bricks and mortar ‘office’ for your team may no longer be the norm and a rise in flexible part-time working may be on the up. Being able to share documents, tasks and data from anywhere and at anytime can help your team to be more efficient.

The cloud is also flexible, making scaling up or down easy to achieve. There is also no need for additional hardware or software updates – suppliers take care of updates and roll out regular updates, including security.

According to The European Commission, cloud technology could help 8 out 10 organisations reduce costs by 10-20%

What can you use the cloud for?

Here are a few examples of what the cloud can be used for:

  • Backup services
  • Data Storage
  • Booking Systems
  • Hosting emails and services
  • Working remotely
  • Information sharing

Cloud technology is definitely the future and we will be sharing some of our favourite apps in our next post.

  1. Rosie, your knowledge astounds me every time. Would love to talk to you more about how I can be sure that my business accounts are being backed up. I know you’ll know the answer – what would we do without you??
