Benefit #1: Sustainability

The Cloud is considered more environmentally friendly than other programs. A research report done by Pike predicts that data center energy consumption will drop by 31 percent from 2010 to 2020 based on the adoption of a cloud solution.[1] For one thing, the energy used is dependent solely on your usage of the cloud. This means you will not waste energy and as a result, reduce your firm’s carbon footprint.[2] Your company will also not have as much paper waste given everything will be in the Cloud.

Benefit #2: Employee Satisfaction

Your team is at the heart of your success and keeping them happy will ensure prosperity for your company. First, these cloud solutions promote collaboration as everyone can upload their documents and work together.[3] This promotes a friendlier environment in your workplace increasing satisfaction amongst employees.  Another characteristic of these solutions is they enable an employee to do work anywhere with an Internet connection. This mobility ultimately creates a better work-life balance which your staff will appreciate. Organizations which make employee satisfaction a priority are 24 percent more likely to expand their cloud usage.[4] The implementation of the cloud will improve the experience of your employees which is a key factor in your success.

Benefit #3: The Customization of the Cloud

The scale of your cloud matches the scale of your business. It adjusts up or down quickly to suit your needs, allowing flexibility as they change. You won’t have to worry about changing your system manually to keep up with your changes because a Cloud solution will do it automatically![5] Your company will not be bogged down by your hardware systems since the solutions work for you!

Benefit #4: You won’t lose important data

You’re in your office and one of your employees comes in and tells you their laptop was stolen while coming to work. This means that the documents on that computer are now gone including the important data you were going to use to form your marketing strategy. This could have been avoided if the data was backed up and secure as it is in the Cloud. With the Cloud, your data is stored and regardless if a device is lost, you can use that data and disable the stolen device from your system. This will allow for smooth business continuity process and allow for more productivity.[6]

Benefit #5: Your firm will save money

We understand that it is scary to just jump into using an unfamiliar program; 20 percent of organizations are concerned about the initial cost of implementing these cloud-based solutions. That being said, half of all CIOs and IT leaders when studied reported cost savings in 2015 as a result of using their cloud-based applications.[7] Your company will immediately see the benefits of this cloud system and on top of acquiring all the benefits, your firm will be saving money.
