36% of small businesses do not use cloud storage. This may be because they are unaware of the software, do not understand the benefits, or simply believe it’s too expensive. But why do the other 64% of SMEs believe the cloud is important? Could cloud storage really benefit your small business?
What is cloud storage?
Cloud storage allows you to place your important data in a secure, remote location which can then be accessed from any computer or phone with a web browser. This stops you from losing files through fire, theft or a computer malfunction and also allows you to easily share files between colleagues.
Backing up business files
Consider this: 80% of businesses without a well-structured recovery plan are forced to shut within 12 months following a flood or fire. Yet less than 50% of all UK companies have a business continuity plan. Do you have a plan set in place for emergencies?
CloudLive’s ProDrive Plan provides a simply way to backup your files. Our BackupPro accounts allow you to Backup all of your data on every computer in your office from as little as £8.33 per month. Plus we are currently offering a 14 day money back guarantee. This will allow you to test our system risk free.
CloudLives’s ProDrive product also offer several key ways to increase productivity in your work place. We have included some methods below;
Sharing files externally – Do you have problems sending customers files through email? Most email services have a files size limit and take a considerable amount of time to send a file from one computer to another. CloudLive allows you to set up a “share folder” on your account. This can be used to transfer files to non-CloudLive users. Simply send your customers or clients a link and they will be able to download your file with ease.
Work from anywhere – Placing your files in the cloud allows you to access them from anywhere. This gives you the ability to edit a PowerPoint before your presentation or access any of your key files during a meeting. Leaving important documents at home or in the office will never be an issue again.
