The Benefits of Cloud Hosting in a Small Businesses Part 3
Hosting your data in the cloud has become business-as-usual for most companies, but understandably there are still some business owners out there who maintain the status quo of keeping everything in-house and on their own physical server. Whether this is because you do not fully trust digital technology or simply feel your business is too small for the cloud or doesn’t need it – read on to see why cloud hosting is the future and what it can do for your business, however big or small.
Let’s have a look at some more benefits you’ll get by choosing cloud hosting.
Improved mobility in sales and customer care: If you’re in an industry where you need to provide customer care or sales services on-site or on the sales floor, cloud hosting will make your employees’ work so much easier. As an example, a field service agent can access the system from the customer’s location and issue orders, get quotes and provide service upfront; another example would be a salesperson who can use his mobile device to check inventory and order specialised requests while with the customer.
Levels the playground: In the past, smaller companies simply didn’t have the budget to compete with big companies when it came to IT infrastructure and resources. Cloud hosting makes it possible to have the same cutting-edge technology and systems to increase your competitiveness with any competitor, regardless how big or small.
Disaster recovery/business continuity: Safeguarding data in case of catastrophic event used to be a costly expense, but cloud hosting makes backing up your data to the cloud much more affordable.
Faster M&A: When two companies merge, consolidating the data and information could take years. Cloud hosting avoids the need to migrate applications and decommission data centres, making the merge more streamlined and speedy.
