Why cloud computing enables collaboration for remote working

EMPAUA Salesforce Partner

We are in unprecedented times considering the recent outbreak and far-reaching spread of the Coronavirus, which leads us to respond to new work settings, including a remote work environment and virtualisation of all meetings that were done in person priorly.

One of the challenges - among many others - that many companies are currently facing is how to set up an effective and efficient way to work and collaborate virtually from various locations and throughout different teams.

The current scenario, in which companies are being forced to find a solution where employees can continue their work and collaborate with their peers without significant disruption, is something in which some enterprises don't have processes or don't have the technologies ready at hand.

These processes, technologies and also the experience to virtualise and digitise business processes and interaction would allow for many of the companies to unify their operations into a cloud platform and enable them to work together in virtual environments.

If your business has the potential to be running within a virtual environment in full or partly, managing this crisis and keeping your business alive can be narrowed down to harnessing the benefits that cloud computing brings in the digitisation of a company's operations.

Cloud-based systems like Salesforce allow your company to organise all your data effectively, while also bringing a strong user experience and additional benefits that result in levelling-up your competitive advantage.

They also help maintain collaboration between teams or individuals, located anywhere in the world, as long as they are connected to the Internet. In other words, cloud computing truly enables collaboration while people are working remotely and not sitting anywhere near each other.

How cloud computing helps remote working? Here are ten benefits of cloud-based systems like Salesforce:

1. Cost Savings:

This is one of the most significant benefits of cloud computing: it saves crucial capital cost, as it doesn't need physical hardware investments. Consequently, you don't need to maintain the hardware yourself or hire dedicated personnel to do this. If you don’t have the resources internally, a cloud service provider controls the implementation and management of your Org.

2. Mobility:

Everyone with access to the system can work remotely, no matter their location,  just as long as they have an Internet connection.

3. Collaboration:

Cloud computing enables collaboration while people are working remotely and not necessarily sitting in the same location.

4. Quick Deployment:

once your Org. is set up, deployment of projects and services are only a couple of clicks away.  

5. Apps Integration:

Salesforce is an advanced cloud-based system that allows integration with hundreds of Apps.

6. High Speed:

It takes only a few clicks to deploy services, minimising efforts and maximising results.

7. Back-up and restore data:

One of the biggest challenges for companies nowadays is the disparity of data. Using software like Salesforce, allows you to store all your data in a Cloud, and therefore, is much easier to back-up and recover all your information.

8. Unlimited storage capacity:

The Cloud has almost limitless storage capacity, and if you need more, your cloud-based partner can expand it in a few minutes.

9. Automatic Software Integration:

Once you are in the Cloud, software integration is automatically done, so you don't need extra efforts to customise and integrate your Org.

10. Reliability:

Salesforce is continuously updating the system. Moreover, you can always get instant reports on whatever topic you need.

According to Salesforce: “as this data shows, an increasing number of tech-savvy businesses and industry leaders are recognizing the many benefits of the cloud-computing trend. But more than that, they are using this technology to more efficiently run their organizations, better serve their customers, and dramatically increase their overall profit margins.”
