You’ve heard about all the benefits of cloud computing, but is it really a safe and reliable form of technology? Here are some things you need to consider before making the big move.

What is The Cloud?

With the use of a data network hosted through the Internet, a hosted PBX enables customers to utilise the services of a PBX without the expensive outlay of traditional hardware. This means connectivity and reachability are improved with the opportunity for unlimited growth, flexibility and ultimately cuts repairs and calling costs with less hardware.

Consider Your Solution

First, you need to establish how much of your IT infrastructure you want to move to the internet: public, private or hybrid. While a public cloud moves less than half of your data on to the internet, the private cloud moves ALL of your IT function to the cloud. However, there is a middle ground. With a hybrid solution, you can benefit from both private and public services to perform different tasks.

Is it a Security Risk?

TRUENAV utilises robust cybersecurity measures to protect your sensitive data – so you can rest assured that your business is safe and secure.

Additionally, many businesses are now opting for cloud-based solutions as physical hardware requires a lot of upkeep and maintenance. Not to mention, theft or loss of property.

What’s more, this technology allows users to access information, from almost any device or software – regardless of what happens to your physical hardware. You can also wipe data from your lost equipment remotely to prevent it from getting into the wrong hands.

Is It Worth The Cost?

At TRUENAV, cloud-based solutions come with a low capital expenditure AND a low ongoing cost. Still, their benefits still outshine their cost. According to Deloitte, “[cloud-based technology] can enable operational agility and greater efficiency. Cloud can also present a range of solutions and options from established tech vendors and supports enterprises’ digital transformation efforts.”

You Might Need Training

Although this solution has apps and services that will benefit your business, you still need to ensure that your employees are trained to handle the new equipment.

This is why it’s so important to choose a provider that offers extra support to assist you and your employees throughout the process.

Will It Improve My Business?

Cloud-based solutions open up the door for team-wide collaboration. This means that your team can easily access, edit and share information anytime, anywhere. Along with collaborating apps like Microsoft Teams your team will be able to edit in real-time, chat and video call. This includes full visibility of your team’s work.

Choose Your Service Provider Wisely

Choosing a capable service provider is important as your vendor will essentially become part of your company. So, think of the relationship as a partnership, not just a transaction.

Does Migration Take Long?

Whether your business is big or small and your software is old or new, TRUENAV promises a swift migration from your hardware-based system to a cloud-based solution.
