Cloud Software for Small Businesses Starting their Cloud Journey
For small businesses it is probably now not a case of IF they are going to start their Cloud journey, more a matter of WHEN.
It is very clear that Cloud software for small businesses has some vital key benefits of saving them time and money and improving small business efficiency by refining communication and collaboration.
Of course small business leaders may well have heard that before.
But when you consider that in a recent McKinsey survey of SMB leaders “60 percent of respondents indicated they have already purchased at least one cloud service and about 30 percent have purchased five or more” then that is a compelling reason to look at moving small business software to the Cloud where you can also take advantage of mobile business software features.
That compelling reason get stronger when you consider that many SMB that have started their Cloud journey already may well be competitors. And what that means is that they have a competitive edge in terms of communication, collaboration, efficiency and agility.
When you also consider that, as of October 2013, there were an estimated 4.9 million businesses in the U.K. and SMBs accounted for 99.9 percent of all private sector businesses (source the Department for Business Innovation and Skills.), and a possibility that 60% have already started to implement Cloud software, then you understand more about the number of them that are already on their Cloud journey.
Therefore the answer for SMBs who pose the question of when they should fly to the Cloud should be clear. They need to select their preferred Cloud software for small businesses supplier before they lose even more ground to their competition.
One of the wonderful aspects of the small business software for the Cloud is that there is now a number of companies that have specifically developed cloud software for small businesses and mobile business software.
And the applications that they have developed have provided SMBs with the opportunity to select cost effective applications that were previously to mid to large sized companies there-by leveling the playing field when it comes to software features, software functionality and I.T. infrastructure.
Cloud based CRM, accounting, project management, support management,B.I., email marketing, social, survey and document management applications are now all available now for SMBs.
