Free of upfront costs, cloud computing helps small businesses streamline their operations meaning they can focus on staying competitive. Cloud Managed services will be of great help to you.
The Cloud refers to a centralized location on the Internet that stores data, making it accessible anytime, anywhere, from any device. Small businesses have embraced the Cloud because it has a number of benefits, including:
With your computer connected to our 24/7 monitoring systems, we know about software and hardware issues before you do. We’ll automatically scan your computer for issues and resolve them to keep you running smoothly. In addition, our monitoring solution also includes Windows, and 3rd Party software patching to eliminate security vulnerabilities as quickly as possible.
Our managed anti-virus system is always up to date and never expires. It’s reliable protection against all your security’s threats such as viruses, malware, spyware and ransomware.
Brew City PC’s backup system automates the process of backing up your important computer records and transferring them to a secure off-site location. The backup software is installed on your server or computers and schedules are set to automatically back them up. This information is transmitted via a secure link using your internet connection to the backup vault. Our software backs up files & folders, Emails & Calendars, Databases, Servers and OS.
Access Files Anywhere, Anytime: Keep all of your files with you wherever you go, on any mobile or desktop device. Even if you already have a file server, BCPC 360 lets you seamlessly integrate file sync into your workflow.
Control Your Data: Maintain complete control of your data. Set permissions to limit who has access to what and track user activity using the Activity Log. Ensure total data security with remote wipe and enforced two-factor authentication.
Collaborate with Ease: Foster internal collaboration by enabling colleagues to access common sets of files using Team Shares. Even when multiple employees have access to the same data, file locking prevents accidental data overwrites. The Collaborative Web Editor allows your team to edit documents in real time, without needed to download a separate application or navigate away from the system.
Secure and Easy Sharing: Share files and folders with colleagues and third parties using a share link. Use the Outlook plugin to email large files. Enforce download limits, expiration dates, and credentialed sharing to protect your shared data.
Protect Your Data: Keep all your key productivity files, even those stored locally, backed up. Granularly restore previous versions of existing or deleted files. Finally, mitigate the risks of ransomware infections through Mass Revision Rollback.
Activity Logging: With the Activity you can track the history of any file, giving you visibility into all edits, additions, and deletions.
Last Line of Defense: Eliminate a Ransomware infection by resetting the clock to before the infection occurred. The Ransomware Rollback feature allows you to restore all files within an entire folder to an earlier revision.
Microsoft 365 (Formerly Office 365) for Business is much more than just Microsoft Office in the cloud. It offers many benefits for businesses, assisting growth, saving money to name a few. Brew City PC makes it easy and seamless to move your business away from an on premise server or entry level email from your web hosting company.
Microsoft 365 gives you flexibility to scale your business quickly as it can grow with you. Businesses have the ability to mix and match apps to create your own custom solution for each user or department, and it’s easy to add or remove users by simply adding or eliminating licenses.
Since you can scale up as needed, your team can continue to work with the tools they are familiar with as you grow, you don’t have to change to a new system or adapt to new tools.
One of the main benefits of Microsoft 365 is the capability to work from anywhere as long as you have internet connectivity.
Because it’s entirely cloud-based, email, files and Office programs (including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) can be accessed from any location and any device. You can create, edit, and share from your PC, Mac or your iOS, Android, or Windows device with anyone in real time.
This is particularly beneficial for companies with multiple locations, remote employees or employees who travel often.
Do you have teams that work together on tasks, documents or presentations? Then you’ll find the collaboration features of Microsoft 365 super beneficial.
Everyone who needs to contribute to or edit a document (or spreadsheet, or presentation, etc.), can work on the same version (and get real-time changes) rather than having multiple copies. Versioning is also included in case you need to go to back to an older version.
Furthermore, with multi-party HD video, shared calendars and team chat, team members will always be in sync.
YOU’RE ALWAYS UP TO DATE
Microsoft 365 is always up to date because it’s in the cloud, so you’ll have access to the latest versions at no additional charge; Gone are the times of software upgrades or patches. Microsoft continually adds new features and capabilities, and you have access to them as soon as they are introduced.
Compatibility issues have also become extinct because all users will be using the same version.
REDUCES CAPITAL SPEND
Microsoft 365 is a subscription-based service, which means you pay an annual or monthly fee per user. It eliminates the large up-front costs for new software; you’re essentially leasing vs. buying. This also moves IT costs from capital to operating expenses.
Although some companies pay yearly, most plans are usually paid month-to-month, which can be helpful from a cash flow perspective. You also have the freedom to switch off services that you aren’t using to cut costs.
ELIMINATES HARDWARE AND REDUCES ENERGY COSTS
Because office runs in the cloud, you don’t need servers for your website, emails or document storage. The cost savings are substantial; Removing onsite servers will reduce both energy costs and the need for office space to store server hardware.
INSTALLATION ON UP TO 5 DEVICES PER USER
Multi-device usage is commonplace nowadays; From using a desktop at the office, a laptop while you travel, a tablet at home, and let face it, we’re all guilty of having a smartphone by our side 24/7. The beauty of Microsoft 365 is that documents can now be accessed from any of these devices, and auto-syncing means that the most current version is always at hand.
MIX AND MATCH PLANS
Microsoft 365 has various business plans, each with different features and programs. Each employee will have different technical needs so having the ability to mix and match your plan will mean you don’t pay for more than you need.
Switching between plans is straightforward, so if you have user(s) that need more or less programs or features this can be done with ease.
