If you use Internet Banking or online email such as Hotmail or Gmail... you're already using Cloud software.
Cloud software refers to software which is accessible on the Internet at a fraction of the cost of traditional software.
We use & recommend Cloud software because it means you can work from where-ever you want, whenever you want, plus with the assurance that we (your accountant) have access to the exact same data in real-time which means you can reach the key decisions faster.
“We’re as serious about the cloud as we are about evolving our businesses. We always look a little askance when we get the question, because it always seems odd to us. Particularly as engineers, we say: ‘[The cloud is] the way the world is moving.’”
- Kurt DelBene, head of Microsoft’s Office division
The advantage of cloud software is that it requires no installation, servers or upgrades and can be accessed from anywhere in the world, at any time. Also there are no licence fees or contracts and the software is designed and upgraded based on the needs and requests of the users.
"If someone asks me what cloud computing is, I try not to get bogged down with definitions. I tell them that, simply put, cloud computing is a better way to run your business.”
– Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce.com
Most cloud products “plug-in” to one another and as a result your business can “add on” additional software when needed to handle a variety of functions which to name just a few, include your Customer Database Maintanance, Newsletters, Project Management, Payroll and the Sales process.
“I don’t need a hard disk in my computer if I can get to the server faster… carrying around these non-connected computers is byzantine by comparison.”
– Steve Jobs, Late Chairman and Co-Founder of Apple
Developing or buying this type of software would cost a business well over R100, 000 which is beyond the reach of any SME, yet on the Cloud it is available for a less than a few hundred Rand per month.
