The Cloud, also known as that great big place where pretty much all things data-related is safely stored, is here to stay. In fact, if you’re starting to forget people’s names with every new face you run into at the office, fear not! This means that now is the perfect time for you to consider shifting your studio management to a cloud-based platform.
As your company grows in the number of people, resources also have to follow, adjusting to match the increasing needs of clients. After all, your long term results will depend on how efficient your workflow is. If you’re unfamiliar with the virtues of the Cloud, here are some that may tickle your ear:
- Safety: this feature comes in first in order of importance, because most studio owners are hesitant about the Cloud, fearful all their information is liable to get lost online. However, the Cloud has been perfected since it first appeared as offered by Amazon and it has currently become a safe haven for sensitive information. It’s so trustworthy that people choose to upload their data to the Cloud rather than save it on their hard drive.
- Automatic Updates: the days of having to go through the hassle of purchasing a patch to update your software, are over. Cloud-based software is instantly updated all the time. Plus, here’s a neat detail: some software developers even consider their user’s feedback and make the updates based on those reactions.
- Always online, always available: When software sits on the Cloud, information can easily be accessed from literally any platform as long as it’s connected to the Internet. All you need is a modem and you’re all set! So work as much you want, from wherever and on whatever device suits you best –mobile, tablet, PC, laptop.
- Visibility: If this list were a top 4, this would be the number 1 reason cloud-based software is your ticket to hit the ground running ASAP. Why? Because for the first time, you won’t be the only one who can see what’s going on in your projects. All of your staff members can see their performance, compare it with other co-workers and become accountable for how much they’re putting on the table to make the firm grow and succeed. Forget opening multiple tabs to check different kinds of information. All the answers you need are right in front of you. This is the beauty of cloud-based software or as they’re called today: SaaS (Software as a Service). You can find further information about visibility here.
