When you are first starting a business, time is one of your most valuable commodities. Back in the day, it could be incredibly time-consuming for a small business to get started, as everything seemed to require advance planning and significant time to set up, including phone systems, email, servers, etc.
Today, however, we have the cloud, and while it has been revolutionary for everyone, it is especially meaningful for the small business owner. Cloud computing offers companies access to a wide range of capabilities that smaller companies usually find difficult to afford. With access to the internet, companies are able to access the services and software they require, while only paying for these items on a monthly basis, just like one would pay for utilities. Today your company is able to participate in the cloud and gain access to everything from backing up data to customer database and management systems. Thus, it is imperative that you take advantage of this opportunity if you are a small business owner.
Here are a few “BIZ TIPS” and tricks (from INCORP) for achieving greater success with the cloud.
