How Cloud Services Can Improve Your Bottom Line
One of the common reasons businesses haven’t yet moved their data center management to the cloud is that they think they can't afford the expense of cloud services. The reality is that cloud services when provided by a reputable, quality firm, can save your company money. This is true for traditional brick-and-mortar offices as well as those that only exist in the virtual world.
Cloud-based managed network services can improve your company's bottom line by saving time, preventing downtime, protecting your data, providing more efficient IT solutions, and reducing the need for costly in-house IT experts.” We can contrast the cost for having IT experts in-house with the cost savings that come from using Global IP’s experts.
Save Time with Cloud Services
Although the age of information technology has streamlined many business practices, it still takes time and effort for your employees to manage it all. Cloud-based managed IT services take that burden off your employees and free them up to do other tasks. This means that your employees should be able to get more work done in the same number of hours. This is a definite bonus for your bottom line.
If you are still using in-house networks to manage your data, when a problem arises with that network, it is up to you and your employees to figure out precisely what that problem is and how to fix it. This troubleshooting can eat up a lot of billable hours.
In addition to the wasted hours looking for and finding a solution to the issue, the rest of your staff must sit idly by and wait for the problem to be resolved. These lost hours due to network downtime can add up quickly.
Cloud services provided by IT experts from a reputable firm can alleviate both the time wasted troubleshooting and the length of the downtime caused by the issue. And with the right cloud services provider, managed IT services can prevent downtime completely by predicting problems before they arise and providing online backup for business so work can continue as if nothing happened.
Protecting Your Data
An intrusion or ransomware attack can cause a great deal of damage to your company's reputation and be costly to repair. Cloud services will provide you with cyber security for business. This network security can prevent the potentially catastrophic financial losses caused by a hacker's attack. In the event of an attack, the right cloud services provider will have a comprehensive disaster recovery plan which includes cloud online backup to help you minimize the damage and rapidly get back up and running at full speed.
Creating More Efficient IT Solutions
The whole point of managed IT solutions is to help your business run more smoothly and efficiently. The reality is that this is only the case if the solutions themselves are correctly handled.
A high-quality cloud services provider should offer your business, whether large or small, business IT support. This should not only include any training needed to get your employees ready for the transition to cloud-based services but also access to a 24-hour help desk. This help desk should provide a place where your employees can get expert and helpful answers to their questions about IT solutions, the network, or any issues that may arise.
Reducing the Need for Internal IT Staff
To keep your network running smoothly, you need access to expert-level IT support. You can add IT experts to the payroll but they do not come cheap, and employing a team of them full-time to handle your IT support needs can burn through your salary budget quickly.
The right cloud services provider should eliminate the need for in-house IT specialists. The provider can handle all the transition technicalities and ensure that your staff is prepared for the new way of doing things. In addition, the firm should provide you with full access to a team of IT professionals to help when any issues arise or to tweak things to suit your needs better.
