One of the biggest benefits of cloud-based business systems is flexibility. A cloud-based system such as Sage Live works the way you want to work. No longer do you need to run your business around your software.
Sage Live Expands to Fit Your Needs
Sage Live can scale up as you need more bandwidth for your customers. Manufacturers with heavy seasonal demands may find that cloud computing easily adjusts and flexes to the demands at specific times of year when order volume is high. During other times of the year, when the volume is low, their computer demands decrease. Instead of investing in new hardware to handle the high volume time periods, cloud computing adjusts with the needs easily and swiftly.
Add More Users Easily
Another way in which the cloud can expand to fit your business is by easily adding new users onto the system at any given time. A busy warehouse may need to add temporary workers during certain seasons. The cloud can accommodate more logins without adding unnecessary terminals or additional software packages.
You can also add users from multiple locations. Some companies use freelance office workers, marketing, or sales people to supplement their workforce. With Sage Live, you can add additional workers easily onto the system. They can access the database through their home computers, tablets or smartphones. All you need is a web connection. It’s an easy way to get everyone working from the same data and keeping your systems up-to-date, no matter who accesses them.
Security Is Excellent
One concern that many business owners have when they consider cloud computing is the security level. Cloud computing works off shared servers and companies often worry that their data may be compromised or somehow less secure when it is kept off-site than when it is housed on hard drives within their four walls. Suffice to say that cloud computing companies have some of the strictest security protocols available in place to ward off viruses and hackers intent on damaging or stealing data. You can’t “accidentally” access anyone else’s data on the cloud, so your company’s information is secure. Cloud computing is secure computing.
The Cloud Is Here to Stay
Cloud computing has moved from a “nice to have” to a “must have” as more businesses embrace cloud technology. It’s simple to use, highly secure, and less expensive than older technologies.
Sage Live provides global accounting, personalized business reports, and anytime, anywhere access. A multi dimensional general ledger makes it easier to review your company’s finances. It’s Sage software, with a cloud interface that’s simple to use, yet provides robust business intelligence data for better insights.
