Most businesses are now enabling employees to work from home or out of the office. For mobile workers, such as field engineers, this is a necessity. Currently, it may be difficult and take a lot of time for staff to access the systems, documents or data that they need out of the office. If a laptop is lost or stolen, that could be a huge amount of sensitive data in the wrong hands – and there's no way of getting it back.
The cloud offers you secure access to everything you need. This includes online and offline working, as even offline you can work on-the-go. Changes will be uploaded once you’re back connected to the internet. Every minute can be used effectively.
Modern cloud technologies de-risk data being out of the office on an employee’s laptop. Gain peace of mind with the cloud’s inbuilt disaster recovery and security options. This keeps your data secure and accessible at all times. Data can be encrypted, password-protected, and access controlled. Using digital rights management (DRM) and data loss prevention (DLP) your documents and emails can’t be printed, forwarded on, emailed around – they’re locked down. It is a disruption-free approach to protecting the loss of sensitive corporate data.
You can take advantage of cloud-hosted applications such as Microsoft Office 365 (for office productivity) and Microsoft Dynamics 365 (for customer engagement) to work effectively out of the office. This gives your staff the tools they need for boosted productivity, improved collaboration, and effortless communication.
The cloud works on a monthly operating expense, so you don’t have huge upfront expenses like on-premise hardware and licenses. Instead of replacing aging servers every five years or so, your cloud solution is regularly updated and patched by the cloud provider – no extra work for you. Your time is shifted from looking after servers and fixing problems, to being able to work on value-added projects.
