Some Business Dynamics are Made for the Cloud
If you want to spend less time managing infrastructure and more time focusing on your core business objectives, it’s time to consider the cloud. Step back and take a fresh look at the forces affecting your business. Check out the list below to see if any of these common dynamics might be driving you to the cloud:
1. Rapid Growth
Businesses expanding at warp speed need solutions that can be implemented just as fast. The cloud provides quick and easy software upgrades with the inherent scalability needed to support growth. Plus, cloud solutions offer greater flexibility for integrations with other technologies you may already be using and the ability to more readily adapt processes in the future.
2. Multiple Sites
You may have staff in multiple locations, but you need a single solution that supports remote workforces or work-from-home employees without becoming a major administrative undertaking for your IT staff. A cloud solution can easily be deployed regionally to globally, while also creating a more consistent experience for both your staff and your customers.
3. Mobile Workforce
If you have a substantial number of people who are in the field, on the road or just not at their desks, cloud-based technologies and mobile apps make data easily accessible wherever they are. The cloud also makes it easy for your administrators or IT staff to remotely manage equipment to ensure remote employees have the tools they need to get the job done.
4. Legacy Technology
If your onsite equipment is ready for an upgrade, there’s no better time to consider moving your communications to the cloud. Consider your goals and where your business is headed to see if the flexibility and cost structure offered by a cloud communications solution — such as Mitel Connect Cloud — are a good fit for your company.
5. Poor User Experiences
If you’re hearing more complaints than compliments these days, take a critical look at what you’re trying to accomplish. Many cloud-based solutions offer greater customization opportunities to help you meet the distinct needs of your business.
