By now, you’re probably aware of the fact that your company would benefit from a move to the cloud. However, accepting this fact and getting ready to migrate your company are profoundly different. It can be challenging for many small- and medium-sized businesses to prepare themselves for a move to the cloud, especially if they’re doing it without the help of a trusted and trained expert.
As you start planning the move and get caught up in the stress of migration, it’s easy to lose sight of the potential benefits that the cloud can offer your company. If that purpose is lost, it’s tempting to take shortcuts and cut corners to save money, to the detriment of your future growth, revenue, and productivity.
Fortunately, VersaTrust is here to help guide you towards the best solutions for your business. As a Dallas-Fort Worth cloud services expert, we specialize in leveraging the cloud to create unique, custom solutions for our clients, to help encourage their growth, security, productivity, and so much more.
Today, we’ll guide you through the process of working with us on a custom cloud computing solution, then demonstrate how it can add long-term value to your business.
How VersaTrust Implements Convenient Cloud Computing Solutions
By now, you’re probably aware of how cloud computing solutions can be combined with on-premise tools and products to create a working environment that is completely customized to your company’s needs. This is how we do it:
We begin each partnership with a business-needs discussion, so we can deeply understand your business and the processes that are integral to its success. From there, we’ll analyze the current state of your IT and conduct a risk assessment to uncover vulnerable areas. During this phase, we’ll also take a look at your systems and software to determine whether any of your current systems can be streamlined or improved to offer greater functionality or productivity.
Once we’re aware of your needs and familiar with your current IT environment, we can get to work designing a cloud solution that matches your business goals.
Not only are our services fully scalable, they’re also available for a flat-rate fee. That means that you can rest easy, knowing that regardless of what happens, you’re protected and will never have to pay additional unanticipated costs.
This leaves you free to focus both your attention and budget on business growth, with the assurance that your cloud solutions will always be able to keep pace. Along the way, we’ll be there to support you with 24/7 service and support, along with resources and other information you can use to make the most of your custom IT solution.
How Your Company Can Benefit From a Move to the Cloud
Now that you’re more familiar with the process of setting up your new cloud computing solution, let’s focus on the potential benefits for your business.
Scalability and flexibility
Incorporating your new cloud solution into your day-to-day routines should be easy. However, that’s just the beginning. As many companies grow, they’re forced to make larger and larger hardware investments to keep up with demand. Investing in a cloud solution allows you space to grow with your company without the need for costly ongoing investments.
In addition to offering scalability that can be utilized at will, a great cloud solution offers flexibility. Whether you need to support a hybrid workforce, allow people to work from home as needed, or even just enable remote access temporarily, a cloud solution makes this all not only possible, but unbelievably easy.
Instead of your staff having to change their routines according to technical capabilities, now your cloud can easily adjust to accommodate their needs. This ongoing flexibility prioritizes the needs of staff, encouraging productivity and creativity.
Save on infrastructure costs
When it comes to on-premise infrastructure, the potential capital expenditures never end. While this may have been a fiscally responsible choice in the past, the reality is that current cloud services offer not only increased infrastructure functionality, but also the potential for major long-term cost savings.
According to a Microsoft survey, 20% of SMBs that transitioned to the cloud said that this reduced their IT budget within 3 years. Only 4% of non-cloud companies could say that their IT spend went down during the same period.
Instead of regularly spending money on the parts and labor required to maintain and upgrade outdated hardware, your business can take advantage of the reasonable and predictable costs associated with the cloud. This lowers your total cost of ownership and allows your internal IT team to focus on innovation rather than maintenance.
Recovery options and speed
Working with on-premise hardware means that the central system that keeps your business functional is vulnerable in a variety of ways, including from:
- A natural disaster
- Cybersecurity incident
- Human error
These issues can easily disrupt your operations, causing downtime that halts productivity and causes both reputational and financial damage.
Once you’ve moved to the cloud, your data is immediately safeguarded from these types of threats. Additionally, we can implement a variety of protective measures around your data in the cloud, ensuring compliance with industry standards.
When your data and critical processes are protected from threats in this way, disaster recovery and backups also become a lot more straightforward. We can work with you to design and implement regular backups, and help create a robust disaster recovery strategy that will ensure your company’s safety in the event of a breach or natural disaster.
