Whether you are home or office based, doing business in the cloud is a fast and reliable way of accessing files, emails and software programmes wherever you are. Hosted services are redefining how small enterprises do their business, so it’s important to stay on top of the latest technologies to ensure your company is benefiting as much as possible. Here are some of the ways your start-up can benefit from hosted services.

1. Easier collaboration

Collaboration between employees can be complicated when you’re starting out, particularly if you don’t have an office set up yet or if certain employees work from home. Collaboration is made easy in the cloud, with the ability to save and access numerous files and work from the same document.

It’s also the perfect way for small business employers to track individuals’ progress on tasks. Ghost IT Services, Essex have hosted backup available with just one monthly fee and at a fraction of the cost of traditional IT infrastructure.

2. Flexibility

One of the best aspects of cloud computing is having the ability to access work-related files and information from any device at any time. In the mobile world we live in, the workplace has come a long way from files being stuck on a single server or computer. This is vital for start-up business owners who will always be on the go and need to access files at any given time or place. One way of managing this is through Ghost’s Hosted Exchange, which enables greater freedom and flexibility in managing your communications across multiple devices.

3. Cost-effective

Perhaps the most obvious benefit is that cloud services can provide small businesses with significant savings. Doing business in the cloud and going virtual increases the value of physical server hardware, meaning small businesses can do more with less. This means lower costs for installation, maintenance, hardware, upgrade and support costs, which is invaluable for start-ups with limited budgets.
