In an increasing digital age, more and more businesses are moving to the ‘cloud’ to host various functions of their business.
With technology advancing at such a rapid speed, it has eroded and revolutionised organisation’s needs for physical infrastructure and hardware as we have moved in to the realm of the ‘cloud.’
So, what exactly is ‘cloud’ technology?
If you are an Apple user, you may have heard of iCloud but may not be any wiser to what it actually is and how it can benefit your business.
BasicallyIn a nutshell, iCloud is part of the cloud computing model which is a product of the evolution of internet; it allows us to share everything (including software, resources and information), on demand via a device.
Companies of all sizes that utilise the idea of cloud computing can reduce the amount of money spent on certain IT functions, as hosting providers have lower initial set up costs as well as smaller on-going payments. Rather than forking out a lump sum to buy something outright businesses can pay on a pay-per-use basis.
Cloud services not only potentially cut costs; they also have the ability to make a workforce more productive. Namely this would be by having the ability to access cloud solutions anywhere, it provides employees with opportunities to work remotely or whilst travelling thus increasing productivity for the organisation.
Cloud Numbers for Business
Hosting a business phone number within the cloud is similar to other cloud services provided.
At Windsor Telecom the set-up is extremely straightforward, with no set up fees you can have your cloud number up and running within 24 hours.
The cloud number works by sitting upon your existing phone number which then directs calls through to your chosen landline or mobile. This means if you ever decide to move the location of your business you can take this number with you. Conveniently you can also change the target number where your calls are routed to at any time if needs be.
