What is a cloud solution?
Cloud computing describes the delivery of hosted services over the internet rather than through traditional in-house hosting (usually on your own premises). The primary benefits of using cloud computing software are below:
Remove the cost and risk of running servers on-site
Unlike on-site solutions, cloud computing offers no up-front capital expenses. Instead, users typically pay by the month or user and only pay for the resources they require as a business. So, cloud computing reduces capital outlay with predictable operational costs.
A secure, resilient environment for critical systems
You don’t have to create back-ups or deal with computer breakdowns with cloud computing software. Instead, your team can save files automatically to the cloud, and employees can use their personal computers and handheld devices to gain access to securely stored data.
Allow user access from any location, 24/7
The cloud is everywhere, so you can connect to your remote cloud-based server wherever you are. Be that in the warehouse, depot, or your home or customer’s address. As a result, your staff can enjoy full flexibility in how they work, increasing overall productivity.
Scalability that fits around your business needs
Over time, your computing capabilities need to increase and decrease for various reasons. Depending on your requirements, you can scale more easily with the cloud. For example, new users and extra storage capacity are simply added to your plan and added instantly.
It's easier to comply with government regulations
As a business, there are many rules and regulations that you must adhere to (like the data protection laws of GDPR, for example.) When running IT systems for yourself, the responsibility lies with you. But with cloud computing, we manage all this for you.
It allows you to focus on running your business
Monitoring your IT systems on-site is time-consuming and expensive when you have a business to run. A cloud service provider takes this inconvenience away from you and uses their skills and experience to keep your IT infrastructure working smoothly.
KCS solutions integrate and manage a whole range of business tasks, including:
