Technology has found its way into almost every business, with a growing number of SMEs relying on networked computer services. As fascinating as it seems, an equally surprising aspect of this is that some SMEs are relying on unreliable and outdated computer systems.
In-house Office Servers – The Great Fall
When it comes to resolving this issue, a major concern is the high costs of buying technical support and replacing out of date systems. This means that companies often choose to patch up outdated and slow in-house Office Servers, rather than making huge investments.
As a direct impact of such choices, system downtime may well be sky-high, knocking down efficiency and decreasing productivity.
Moving to the Cloud
As technology evolves over time, so do the businesses using it. Many businesses are now looking at the bigger and better picture of managed IT services in the Cloud. A Cloud hosting solution, such as that provided by RentedApps, will remove the need of buying expensive in-house servers and desktop PCs, allowing your staff to at access your business application packages hosted in the Cloud.
