Few tech buzzwords cause more confusion than the cloud. To put it simply, cloud computing uses the Internet to host software and to store data instead of on your computer.
It decentralizes data storage, which protects your information in the event that your computer, tablet, or mobile device crashes. Cloud-based solutions also grant you access to your software and your email from any device, allowing you to work remotely.
Despite its many benefits, many small to medium-size businesses are intimidated by the transition from on-premise storage and installed software to cloud-based alternatives. That’s where we come in.

Why We Provide Cloud-Based Solutions
With the advent of faster, more reliable Internet service, online cloud-based software and storage performs better and more consistently than internal software and on-site servers. These cutting-edge solutions offer great features and optimal performance on any device, including in-house workstations, smartphones, tablets, and offsite computers.
Because most cloud services are offered on a subscription, they are also more economical than investing in new hardware. These monthly subscriptions can be classified as an operational expense rather than a capital expense.
