10 Benefits of Cloud Computing

Lower Costs – Cloud Computing offers tremendous advantages in terms of reduced costs.

  • Cloud Computing spreads the IT costs over a large community of users.
  • You do not need to hire your own IT team or consultant. With traditional computing you either need an IT team or consultant. With cloud those IT functions are provided by the cloud vendor.
  • You do not need to purchase your own software & servers etc. With traditional computing you have to buy the hardware and software and maintain it. With cloud those servers etc. are maintained by the cloud vendor.

Scalable – You can scale your companies needs up or down seamlessly rather than having to hire staff and purchase expensive hardware.

Automatic Updates – There is no need for IT to implement upgrades. The cloud vendor performs the upgrade and it is immediately available to everyone who subscribes.

Remote Access – Employees can access their information from any location with an internet connection. The information that they can get on the desktop at work is also accessible on their hand held smart phones. The information they need is always at their fingertips.

Ease of Implementation – Without the need for installation of hardware and software, you can be up and running in less than a day.

Wide selection of solutions – Skilled Vendors like LeadMaster LLC offering cloud hosted SaaS (Software as a Service) CRM/SFA lead management, lead nurturing, e-mail marketing services at an affordable monthly per user license cost.

Improved performance – Because the cost of the cloud solution is spread over a large community of users, cloud vendors typically have very high performance systems which offer a better performance than having your own infrastructure.

Levels the playing field – Cloud computing allows small companies to compete more effectively with larger businesses when they are both using the same business tools.

Reliability & Security – Cloud vendors have designed their systems to run 24/7 with secure data storage, disaster recovery and business continuity at an affordable price.

Green Computing – Because the cloud computing infrastructure is supporting a large number of users, cloud computing typically uses less energy than traditional data centers on a cost per user basis.
