With the recent enterprise challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, the workplace environment has evolved at a fast pace. The situation has forced companies to go for digital solutions such as cloud for business continuity.   

Eastern Communications, a Philippine-based telecommunications company, believes that cloud has been defining the modern workplace and it is now dominating the market. Businesses have started adopting cloud service to support their operations and promote productivity among employees amid the crisis.  

Should your company follow the trend? Here’s why cloud can be an asset for your business. 

Work flexibility
Cloud platform allows users to store files in such a way where members of an organisation could access it anytime and anywhere. This offers significant help especially now that companies have started implementing work from home arrangements for their employees. Cloud can be a good option in times of crisis such as COVID-19 which forced most enterprises to stop office operations. 

Businesses can continue doing their tasks from any location and conveniently access necessary data as long as an internet connection is available. Cloud allows employees to manage their workflows better with easier communication and team collaboration while accessing data from a central location. This can prevent organisations from halting operations even in challenging situations such as work suspension and calamity.

Cost efficiency
Simply put, businesses save huge amounts of money by investing in cloud platform services. The purchase cost ensures maximum utilisation of budget on the needed software features of the business. Overhead is the responsibility of the service provider. This big cut on overhead expenses could be used instead for business expansion.

Secured data backup
Official work files contain a lot of essential information. From images to documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, it is necessary for businesses to keep a secure copy and backup of these files. It is not advisable for businesses to depend solely on external servers and drives or on printed documents for data platforms since these are prone to data corruption. By storing data in the cloud, businesses are guaranteed file safety and data loss is no longer a concern even during uncontrolled environmental hazards such as natural calamities or accidents. Data will be saved safely in the cloud. 

Data Protection
Through a virtual environment, cloud services provide protection in the event of primary operations failure. It does not only store data but also protects it from untoward situations. Cloud services offer ease of mind so businesses would not have to worry about permanent loss of critical data, like what Eastern Cloud-based Disaster Recovery provides.

Increased productivity
Cloud platforms free up spaces from resources such as desktops and servers. Having a clean, uncluttered, and well-organized workplace helps reduce waste while optimizing productivity. It is also useful for employees who work from home as necessary files would be accessible at the comfort of their home, making them as productive as they are when in office. 

With the fast-changing business environment, cloud services make it easier for companies to access data and information more efficiently. It is also important to choose the right service provider for a reliable and satisfactory cloud experience for your business. Eastern Cloud is one of Eastern Communications’ latest ICT solutions offering world-class methods of storing and sharing company data and applications securely over the Internet, hence advancing overall business performance.
