In the past every office would have a server of some kind. An expensive box that needed an engineer to maintain it and your business was totally dependent on it.
The cloud simply replaces that server with online facilities. The key ones are email and file services but you also find various other things can now be hosted in the cloud such as accountancy packages.
The advantage is that the cloud providers have full resilient and redundant infrastructure with engineers on-site 24/7 and are able to guarantee a level of service that small businesses could not previously afford to implement.
Pricing tends to be per user so it scales with you from solo worker to huge enterprises. It’s not right for everyone and there are things to consider before diving in, but we are here to guide and help you make the best choice for your business.
Once your services are no longer tied to a server in your office you are no longer limited to working on-site. Our cloud solutions let you work from your home computer, mobile laptop, tablet or smart phone.
Tie this in with our VOIP Telephony services and you really can work from anywhere with all the facilites you would expect from your office.

Dropbox is a truly wonderful product for those who have not experienced keeping files online before.
Put simply, every time you save a file a copy is uploaded to the Dropbox servers. They keep a version history and store it for 30 days so if you delete it or make a mistake you can go back and get it. Once your documents are online you can get to them on any of your devices and Dropbox keeps them all in sync for you.
So gone are the days where you left a file on the computer in the office and gone are the days when the PC breaks and you loose your work! Dropbox has individual and team options and we will help you choose what is best for your situation.
