Cloud software is a revolution in business software. Experience the benefits and stay ahead of the game.

"The Cloud" is the user-friendly term for the location of software that is accessed online. Unlike traditional computer programs that you buy and save on your own hard drive, cloud programs are accessed through your internet browser or an application on your mobile device and save data onto a remote database (server).

Benefits of Using Cloud Software

  • It can be accessed from anywhere, at any time when you are connected to the internet
  • Information can be shared between multiple users and viewed at the same time
  • It is secure and protected from any hardware problems your business appliances might encounter 
  • Software is basically 'rented' (Software as a Service or 'SaaS'), so can work out more cost effective
  • Software is constantly updated, with updates rolled out to users as they become ready

For your business this means new ways to save time and money everyday.
