Up in the Cloud

Collaboration, business continuance and cross-device document usage are just a few of the reasons why I love having our company’s e-mail and office documents in the cloud. Cloud services such as Google Apps for Business and Microsoft 360 continue to improve their services and offer efficiencies across the board, making onsite e-mail servers and tape backups a thing of the past for an increasing number of companies. There is no company too large or too small to benefit from cloud services. I will go over some of the advantages and options with you here.
