Cloud Computing

Cloud computing can be a great way to drive innovation in your business. Trimming out costs is a priority for most businesses right now; and IT shouldn’t be exempt from good business practice. Here’s our top ten list of ways to shave real pounds, shillings and pence off your technology spending, in plain English for busy business owners!

BYOD

“BYOD” denotes “Bring Your Own Device”; whereby employees bring their own home-purchased technology into work. It’s a phenomenon that’s here to stay. This is, surely, a win for your business. Employees pay for their own equipment, and pay to maintain it, too. It’s also usually up to current specifications: better than you might be able to afford; and likely full of current software and apps, too.

What are the main benefits of mobile working for businesses and their employees? An increasing number of businesses are using online solutions - such as Office 365 - to facilitate mobile and remote working, ensuring employees can remain productive despite being away from the office. The advent of broadband and Ethernet solutions has opened up a world of opportunities to firms with the vision to look beyond their own premises.

Mobility

The launch of Windows 8, Surface and Windows Phone 8 has presented mobile workers with a range of new options. With Windows operating systems (OS) having dominated the PC landscape for many years, their emergence in the mobile arena was guaranteed to attract a significant amount of attention.
