We also have systems in place that monitor your website and send us alerts if there is suspicious activity on the site. No one wants a hacked website.
As with all our customers, and as part of the IT Strategy, we look at all business processes and then look at the solutions that best fit those needs. It is highly likely that you have a great solution in place but as part of our continuous improvement policy, there could just be something else that works even better. One example we recently applied was that of a weekly vehicle check sheet using GoCanvas. Before there were no mandatory checks and therefore no control on the state of vehicles. Our clients’ insurance went through the roof. Now everything is monitored and processes in place to reduce claims and in the long run, reduce the insurance cost.
Remember we aim to be a cost neutral partner.
Businesses of all sizes should be investing in robust disaster recovery, but for smaller businesses that lack the required cash and expertise, this is often more an ideal than the reality. Cloud is now helping more organisations buck that trend. According to Aberdeen Group, small businesses are twice as likely as larger companies to have implemented cloud-based backup and recovery solutions that save time, avoid large up-front investment and roll up third-party expertise as part of the deal.
Cloud computing cuts out the high cost of hardware. You simply pay as you go and enjoy a subscription-based model that’s kind to your cash flow. Add to that the ease of setup and management and suddenly your scary, hairy IT project looks at lot friendlier. It’s never been easier to take the first step to cloud adoption.
With cloud computing, if you’ve got an internet connection you can be at work. And with most serious cloud services offering mobile apps, you’re not restricted by which device you’ve got to hand.
The result? Businesses can offer more flexible working perks to employees so they can enjoy the work-life balance that suits them – without productivity taking a hit. One study reported that 42% of workers would swap a portion of their pay for the ability to telecommute. On average they’d be willing to take a 6% pay cut.
