I often have clients ask me what the ‘cloud’ is so I thought I’d share some information. Once you boil it down, the cloud is surprisingly simple – and can be hugely beneficial.
The cloud is where you can put all your data, your files and even your accounting software so that you can access it all from any computer or device, anywhere, at any time. It opens the door to new, more efficient ways of banking, communicating and working by taking it all online.
There are a few myths about the cloud, especially when it comes to cost and control, but the reality is quite different:
- You have complete control over who has access, and the rights to revoke access at any time.
- The cloud can be much cheaper than installed software as you only pay for what you use, rather than endless upgrades and system maintenance.
Xero has put together a really good guide to the cloud and how it can free up your time and money.
