Gain flexibility in your IT

In simple terms, using the cloud means that you access the applications and data you need through the internet. This can reduce your reliance on internal IT infrastructure and the associated IT management overheads. Cloud services are also highly scalable so you only need to pay for the capacity you require.

For example, Xero is a cloud based accounting solution. Your programs and data are stored on Xero’s computers. You can access them from anywhere you have an internet connection. You don’t have to do back ups, you don’t have to install upgrades, and you have less worries about viruses etc. And, rather than an upfront cost of hardware and software, there is a monthly or annual subscription fee.

We offer a Cloud Migration service. This is a consulting and solutions design service that will take you from where you are now, and into the Cloud.
