describe the imageMedium sized businesses, enterprises, and large companies have been implementing a variety of cloud computing solutions for some time now. The benefits to these organizations are often obvious and instant: reduced capital expenditures, greater efficiency, improved scalability, and more.

The advantages for small businesses, however, haven’t always been as clear. The fact remains, however, that there are some ways small businesses can leverage cloud solutions to get ahead.

If you’re in small business, here are some cloud tactics and advantages to consider:

1.    Expertise. You’re good at what you do, but odds are that what you do isn’t providing applications to small businesses. Cloud providers let you have leading experts at your disposal. They will handle system design, implementation, infrastructure, and in some cases even branding for your various solutions.

2.    Competitiveness. Cloud providers can offer you a number of services specific to your niche that your competitors may not have access to. The internal resources that would be needed to implement these services would be astronomical, but cloud providers can put them in your hands fast and cheap.

3.    Scaling at a small business pace. Small businesses tend to grow in spurts. The pay-as-you-go model offered by many cloud providers is ideal for small businesses, because it allows you to expand and contract as necessary.

4.    Increased collaboration. Cloud-based solutions can help your small business work together more efficiently as a team. You can implement cloud storage solutions to share and collaborate on documents. You can implement cloud-based CMS solutions that let your various departments access customer information anywhere, any time.

5.    Automation. There are a number of business management functions that can be dealt out to various cloud providers. For example, cloud-based financial applications can let you automate the invoicing process. There are cloud tools for managing your inbound marketing information, too. You can use the cloud to put a number of functions on auto-pilot, allowing you to focus on doing what you do best.

Check into some of the ways that cloud solutions can improve your business, increase your efficiency, and reduce your expenses today.
