By now, most businesses have figured out how to have at least a portion of their staff work from home. The first few days or even weeks were hectic as IT scrambled to build VPNs and remote phone systems. Now that the initial shock is starting to wear off, companies are analyzing their systems and determining the most efficient ways to improve access to critical resources. We’ve been offering our solutions as Cloud applications for 9 years and truly believe it is the best solution for most companies. Here are a few reasons why:
Work from Anywhere
Working remotely used to be a luxury. In today’s world it is vital to keep your business running. Although VPNs enable remote workers to access resources, licensing costs and bandwidth constraints limit their usage to the most important business systems. No matter where your employees are, critical business documents are just a browser click away.
Health crisis can now be added to the list of disasters that companies must be prepared for. Floods, fires, cyber-attacks and now enforced “stay-at-home” orders all present existential threats to your business. Preparing to survive the next unforeseen disaster is costly and time consuming. Moving your document management system to the Cloud eliminates the risk with very little of your time or cost. How long would it take for you to set up for your data to be protected in multiple locations?
Today’s software applications are complex systems that rely on and communicate with other systems. ENet Docs is no different. Microsoft Windows, SQL Server, FileCenter are just the tip of the iceberg. By moving to the Cloud, you pass on the responsibilities for system updates for each product to the experts. In today’s technology climate, just updating security patches is time-consuming! We take on that responsibility for you.
Even during a pandemic, network security is one of the hottest IT issues. By having your documents on the Cloud, you are ensuring that you’re using the latest and best technology practices. Your valuable documents, using the latest encryption technology, are encrypted as they are put into system and anytime you need to look at a document. As a trusted business partner, we can focus on security issues allowing you to focus on your business.
Reduce Space in Your Office
You already saved space by reducing the number of filing cabinets (you know you have a few left – what’s in them??). When you move to the Cloud, you can reduce the amount of space used by the servers too! Being able to remove network traffic from an in-house server simplifies your infrastructure, ultimately saving you time, hardware maintenance dollars, and eventually, the replacement price of a new server.
When you move to the cloud, you are sharing server resources with other customers. These shared resources are more energy efficient than private servers or even private data centers. Doesn’t the environment deserve a little love?
We aren’t just trying to sell you on our services. When we needed a new support ticketing system, we chose a cloud-based system. Even though we are a tech company, we recognized that our time and expertise was best spent on our own software and our customers, not maintaining software that should be making our lives easier. These are enough reasons to convince most overworked Operations and IT managers, but if you are still unsure, contact Customer Service (860-269-8006 or firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss your specific circumstances.
Oh yeah, if you are convinced, contact us to discuss the implementation process.
