How the cloud makes moving office easier

By SpiderGroup

The long list of items to attend to during an office move can feel overwhelming. As well as moving general office furniture, there’s telephone lines and computers to consider too, not to mention a secure transition for your staff. But there is a way to simplify and streamline your office move, giving you one less thing to worry about: we like to call it the cloud.

Cloud computing

The cloud can seem an abstract concept, but you probably don’t realise you use it daily with a whole host of large companies utilising the internet to store data. Microsoft has OneDrive, Apple has iCloud and Goog

le has the wittily named Google Cloud. All this means really is that the World Wide Web is used to store your stuff.

How you can use the cloud

The cloud, or more specifically for SMBs, hosted desktop has become a super reliable tool for businesses, enabling you to access your files wherever you are. The cloud offers unrivalled security, with all your important documents constantly backed up so you can never have to worry about leaving your memory stick at home. So how does this relate to your taxing office move?

Office relocation with hosted desktop

Remote desktop enables you to streamline your communication transfer, as your staff can access all their programs and files wherever they like. As long as you have an internet connection, your staff can log on to any computer, laptop or tablet and access all the stuff they need. So once there’s internet in your new office, your staff can crack on with their work, minimising disruption and downtime. It also means they can use their own computers or devices while the move is in motion.

Office relocation with integrated telecommunications

Joining your phones to your computer connection is another way to utilise the internet to make your office transition smoother. As soon as your computers are set up, your phones will be too enabling you to keep all your phone numbers and keep your clients happy!
