Does the CLOUD really reduce Expenses?
There’s a lot of talk about how the Cloud platform increases productivity but could it also reduces your firms total expenses too? A recent Rackspace survey of those already using cloud computing showed that:
- 60% of businesses are saving at least 10%.
- Nearly 20% are saving 20% or more.
What could you do with the extra savings?
How CLOUD computing can cut costs for your Business
Eliminate Upfront Investment: With Office Network Online's Cloud Platform, you save the upfront cost of purchasing servers, as well as costly upgrades and installation. You also eliminate the need for space to store your network. Additionally, you have the option of a BYOD (bring your own device) environment further saving you the costs of hardware.
Eliminate the cost of Software: General software is all included and more cost effective. Office Network Online's Cloud Platform includes Microsoft Office, anti-virus, backup, and all the essentials your business needs. If you have Custom software, we move it to your Cloud platform.
Eliminate Unexpected Maintenance Expense: Before the Cloud, the cost of maintenance and upgrades lied solely on the business owner. With Office Network Online's Cloud Platform, all maintenance and upgrades are included in your monthly Cloud subscription, making your IT budget consistent and reliable.
Eliminate Infrastructure Management Costs: By outsourcing to the cloud, you eliminate the cost to hire someone to create and update your infrastructure. It’s all included in the Cloud Platform.
Predictable IT and Support Budget: Rather than unpredictable expenses that may change month to month, you have predictable monthly IT costs. Your systems are monitored 24 hours a day and all support is included. You are able to use technology as an equalizer to compete with much larger firms.
Wasted Payroll Dollars: Some companies estimate their greatest cost savings is in the area of wasted payroll dollars from computer down time or performance issues. These saving vary depending on the size of your company. On average, you will gain an additional hour per employee per week through increased productivity or reduced downtime. A small company of 10 employees averaging $25/hr could save $1,000 per month.
