There has been a lot of buzz about “going into the cloud” and what it can do for small business. But what can it o for me? Cloud services help save money and increase profits by shifting what would otherwise be costly or time consuming tasks – think buying, installing and maintaining your own servers plus the software running on them — to a third-party. In essence, it is outsourcing on the virtual level. Rather than add a new server or hire additional tech support for a growing business, you may be able to get the job done using a cloud service.
Popular cloud services go beyond simply storing files and offer a variety of business solutions:
- Dropbox – A popular cloud storage service, Dropbox allows you to store files and then sync them to a variety of devices
- OfficeTime – Track billable hours and generate invoices
- Salesforce – Helps businesses manage customer accounts and leads. Also provides reporting and analytics as well as marketing services
