The rush for efficient operations in a pandemic environment has left a significant number of businesses scrambling for solutions to continue working effectively. Some businesses have found themselves stuck in old antiquated systems that are not only slowing progress but affecting cash flow. So the question thousands of businesses are facing and struggling to answer is - where do I start?

Cloud based computer systems offer a range of advantages that businesses normally would not be able to afford if not for the cloud. Advantages like extra computing power, potential unlimited storage and centralised data all help businesses who use computing systems daily. Data entry and integration between systems becomes a breeze. Almost all systems and databases are accessible on mobile platforms, and if something goes wrong, using Cloud based storage ensures that valuable data is kept safe.

Basic elements of so many businesses, such as time-sheeting; can be moved from manual systems requiring multiple people to handle the data to cloud based systems, that speaks to other areas of the business, such as payroll or HR. Manual entry of orders, such as a food service business, can be moved to digital ordering systems which speaks to the kitchen and to the accounts payable system. And so on.

Ashfords Digital's  team consistently ensures that each business is set with the technology and processes to launch them into the next age of small to medium business computing, all set upon the cloud.
