Cloud computing helps you untether your business and your employees from their desks. Because the software and infrastructure are in the cloud, employees’ desktops are accessible from anywhere at anytime—enhancing the ability of teammates to communicate and collaborate and increasing employee productivity.
Cloud computing also increases the safety and security of your business data because it is housed off-site in SAS 70 Type II-certified data centers, thereby providing multiple copies of critical data and helping to adhere to regulatory and compliance standards. There’s no need to worry about losing sensitive data due to misplaced laptops, natural disasters, inconsistent employee backups or hackers.
Cloud computing offers complete disaster avoidance. Employee mishaps and premises-based incidents are the biggest reasons why data gets lost or corrupted. But cloud computing offers complete redundancy and off-site backup, so your data is always protected, always available—meaning your business is always open.
Cloud computing eliminates capital expenditures. The cost of buying servers, cooling systems or power supplies (no matter what the reason) becomes the responsibility of Broadview. In addition, moving desktops to the cloud can extend the life of existing hardware, thus dramatically reducing the cost of hardware and capital investment.
Lower Software Costs
Because cloud services are offered on a monthly subscription basis, you can scale up services as you need them and scale back when you don’t—and pay only for what you use. So you can eliminate the cost of software licenses for employees who are no longer there, while delivering the latest software versions to your staff without the cost of upgrades.
Cloud computing lowers the cost of ownership. Broadview supports platforms in the cloud around the clock, freeing up on-site IT personnel to work on more valuable projects and saving money on on-going maintenance services. Plus, expenses are more predictable, making it easier to manage the IT budget.
