As we move further and further into the 21st century, businesses are slowly making the transition from physical to digital documentation. This can have many benefits, but it can also cause some stress for business owners who struggle to keep up with these advances.
Let’s take a look at the different ways a business can decrease their stress around document or server loss.
Invest in Cloud Databases and Software
Moving to a cloud-based storage system is a great way to save your business plenty of money in storage and maintenance, but a cloud-based system also has the added benefit of never having to overhaul your systems when software reaches its end-of-life.
Many different cloud databases, such as Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud, exist to support the needs of small business owners and integrate their data in an easy manner to save you time and stress.
Develop a Strong Data Backup Routine
We all have faced the sudden fear of having our systems go down and losing all of our hard work, but this is an issue that can easily be resolved by implementing a regular data backup strategy.
Data recovery experts suggest that business should backup their data to servers or clouds at least once a week and avoid being part of the $12 billion worth of information lost every year.

Technology solutions are getting easier and easier for business owners to master and adapt to, but an intelligent company requires intelligent employees who know how to navigate these cloud-based solutions as well.
