Cloud computing can help the environment

There are many significant benefits to cloud computing including increased productivity, smoother collaboration and remote working. Cloud computing is a global solution – and it also positively impacts everyone, meaning even those who don’t yet use it, can still benefit.

No more print outs

When you adopt cloud computing into your business, you can become a paperless company. We’re all very aware of instant messaging and email benefits – it’s quick, it’s easy and it leaves no paper trail. With cloud computing, you have full access to emails and documentation from any location on any device. Even signatures don’t need to be obtained physically. Another advantage of having no paper means no printing, no more buying paper, no running out of ink when you need it the most, and no noisy printer.

Your employees don’t have to be in the office

People will no longer need to travel to work to be effective in their roles. It’s been proven that staff are still productive when they are at home or at another location rather than the office, contrary to popular belief. Moreover, their working day is not wasted on travelling, and instead, they actually have more time in the day to focus on work. Being able to work remotely means you can instantly reduce your carbon footprint. Gone are the days of “office hours” when everywhere can be your office. Another upside to remote working is if any emergency creeps up, dedicated staff members can help you from anywhere, even from the comfort of their own bedroom.

Reduce electricity use

Traditional data hardware systems require intense power supplies, cooling and a lot of electricity. By moving business software such as email, ERP and more to the cloud, this can save enough electricity each year to power Los Angeles for 12 months. This means the cloud would lower energy consumption of these software applications by 87%.

We’re happy to help you get you up and running in the cloud – and the quicker you get started, the quicker you’ll be able to reap the environmental benefits of the cloud.
