COMPARE THE BENEFITS

Running a business outside the cloud leads to…

Whereas businesses that run in the cloud have…

  • Data errors

    Version control becomes a problem when employees work via email, putting data accuracy at risk

  • High data integrity

    Employees work simultaneously in the same version of the same file running in the same application

  • Lack of security

    Successful phishing attacks end up killing the majority of small business they strike

  • Enterprise-class security

    Cloud providers can shut down phishing attacks before they do any damage

  • Slow response time

    Sending emails back and forth among employees is the slowest possible way to get work done

  • Rapid work capability

    With employees collaborating in real time, work gets done faster, more efficiently and more accurately

  • Loss of critical information

    A company’s entire set of financial records could disappear in a fire or flood if stored on a single device

  • Protection of critical information

    With automatic cloud backup of critical information, the risk of losing important files is virtually zero

  • Missed application and system updates

    Using outdated software is a security risk, and many applications won’t function well without updates

  • Automatic updates

    Automatic updates mean the most recent version of an application will always be running

  • Lack of consistent workflows

    One missed cc: in an email could lead to a key stakeholder being left out of a critical discussion

  • Dedicated workflows

    When everybody can access the same apps and files at the same time, nobody gets left out

  • No technical support

    Companies supporting their own servers put data at risk and can experience significant downtime

  • 24/7 technical support

    Business owners can contact experts who have the expertise to get applications up and running again

  • Slow performance of on-premises servers

    Lots of employees working from separate locations can crash a single server and make it unavailable

  • Excellent performance

    A cloud provider offers the same speed and reliability that the world’s largest corporations enjoy
