3 Ways Cloud Services Can Save You Money

Cloud services have been around for a few years now, and at this point a lot of what we do both in work and out is based in the cloud. Services like Netflix, Dropbox, OneDrive, etc., are all cloud based applications. Cloud is the way of the future, and it comes with some great advantages. Here are 3 ways you can save money in your business by using cloud services.

Technology

One of the best features of cloud software, is without a doubt, the fact that it is always the latest version. Because the software is hosted in the cloud, and not locally on your computer, you never have to worry about updating it again. When was the last time you updated your Microsoft Office software? The most recent version is 2016. Are you using 2 year old software? Or even older? When it comes to cloud you can know 100% that the version you are using is the most up to date. And that isn’t even the best part. The update won’t cost you an extra penny!

Collaboration

Because the cloud is hosted in, well — the cloud, you don’t need to worry about buying multiple copies of software to install on multiple different computers. Instead, all you need to do is subscribe to the package that best suits your needs, and that’s it! All you have to do then is provide your employees with access to the service à la login credentials, and you’re set! Not only will this save you thousands of dollars in purchases, but it will also allow your staff to easily work together! Win-win!

Pay For What You Need

Because cloud software is sold as SaaS (software as a service), you only need to pay for what you want, instead of everything. In the old days before cloud, when you wanted to buy a program, you had to buy every single program which came attached to that program. For example, the Microsoft Suit — Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. With a SaaS subscription, you decide which options you want, and you’re priced accordingly. Paying for what you need not only makes a lot of sense, but is also a huge money saver, especially for those with large amounts of staff!

As an additional bonus, not only do cloud services save you a lot of money each year, but they also add a layer of protection to your business. By storing your data in the cloud, you are giving yourself a second backup apart from your on-site storage!
