Cloud services are a part of the flexible work environment we are now accustomed to. With larger storage space and more capabilities, cloud services makes companies more efficient and up-to-date.

 

What is The Cloud?

The cloud is a place where you can access apps, store data securely, and retrieve it anywhere with Internet access. For personal use, it is somewhere in the void at the other end of your Internet connection. Getting technical, cloud servers are Virtual Dedicated Servers that run on a cloud-computing environment, and not in a tangible space. This is useful for any company whose employees working remotely.

Cloud Features

Flexibility

With the advent of working remotely at conferences, during lunch meetings, when traveling etc. office based work is not as flexible. Access CRM and other internal systems easily and on-the-go with cloud based software.
