Work from home over Christmas with the cloud

Christmas presents Cloud computing is allowing small businesses to perform and leverage the same tech as larger enterprises. This is made possible by the collaboration and communication tools, software, apps and access to documents and databases anywhere on any device. With data being readily available no matter where you are located why not leverage this technology and work from the comforts of your own home this Christmas? The Christmas period is known for relaxation, family bonding and of course, time-off. However, not all of us are lucky enough to have the option to take time off during the festive season. So, if you do have to work over the Christmas period why not opt for a work from home policy? Sit by the radiator with your PJs on and munch away on mince pies whilst emailing and typing away. By doing so, you’ll be able to avoid the stress and expense of commuting and simply enjoy the surroundings of your own home. There are now 4 million people in the UK working from home, according to the Office of National Statistics and this accounts for 13.9% of the workforce. Obviously, this is not exclusive to Christmas- but, if so many others are doing there must be a reason so why not jump on the bandwagon? With the cloud, all you need to work from home is a device, such as a laptop or iPad, and Wi-Fi connection. From there, you will have complete access to all files, emails and applications. There’s no need to install applications or update software to suit your device’s settings as the cloud works as a Hosted Desktop and Hosted Application solution, meaning what you see on your office computer is exactly what you’ll see on your own device. This, in turn, eliminates the need to email files from your office computer to your personal device and purchasing your own licensing for applications such as Adobe Creative Cloud to enable you to access them on your own device. Working from home is not only exclusively beneficial to the employees but could almost be a necessity for business owners- especially for smaller ones. Small businesses do not have large amounts of staff and help on hand for customers, meaning senior staff cannot just abandon ship and leave their customers and potential customers on their own with no form of communication in place. The cloud allows these small business owners to enjoy the relaxation of their own home but still have the ability for business continuity to maintain the brand reputation and excellent customer service. To make your time at home even better, if any technical issues pop up you can simply call your cloud service provider’s technical support team and they will be ready to offer you support and solutions to any issues. Atlas Cloud has been rated 4.9/5 for their award-winning technical support team. The option to work from home allows you to work productively and efficiently to ensure all tasks can be completely ready for the New Year. Your mind can be at ease knowing that all documents can be accessed and edited whenever you need and could potentially result in more family time as the commute to and from work is obliviated. In addition to this, remote working has shown an increase in productivity so the extra hour you’d spend in the office completing tasks is no longer needed.
