Businesses all around the world are realizing the power of cloud-based applications. According to a survey conducted by Elon University, “Technology experts and stakeholders say they expect they will ‘live mostly in the cloud’ in 2020 and not on the desktop, working mostly through cyberspace-based applications accessed through networked devices.” Operating in the cloud offers many benefits, including reducing the need for infrastructure, increasing efficiency, reducing onsite IT costs, and so much more. Check out three of the best benefits of cloud-based apps below.
Benefit #1: They Are Fast
If you like rapid deployment, then you’ll love cloud-based applications; they can be updated, tested and deployed quickly. In fact, in most cases cloud-based apps can be up and running in just a few days or few weeks. Take our Commercient SYNC data integration app, for example. It’s an out-of-the-box cloud-based application that allows you to integrate data between your ERP and CRM systems, and we can install it for your company and have you up and running in as little as 24 hours. And what’s great about Commercient SYNC and all cloud-based apps for that matter is that you can simply open a browser, log in, customize the app, and start using it.
Benefit #2: They Are Secure
Not only are cloud-based apps both easy and fast to deploy, but with cloud-based apps, your data is stored securely in the cloud environment. According to Salesforce, “The key to this amped-up security is the encryption of data being transmitted over networks and stored in databases. By using encryption, information is less accessible by hackers or anyone not authorized to view your data.”
As an example, our SYNC data integration app is cloud-based and we are able to provide you with a safe and secure environment for integrating the data between your ERP and CRM systems. And by operating within the cloud, it makes it easier for you to grant your employees varying levels of controlled access to the data that you sync into your CRM system.
Benefit #3: They’re Scalable
Another benefit to leveraging cloud-based apps is you can increase or decrease the number of users, as your needs change over time. As your demand rises or falls, available capacity can be adjusted. With our SYNC app, we can scale up or down, depending on all your needs, including the number of users, so you never have to worry about running out of capacity, or having more than you need.
