YouCloudIT are all about digital transformation for medium and small business.
However…we urge all new start-ups DO NOT GET INVOLVED IN DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION!! Get it right from the outset. Start digital and stay digital.
56% of new small businesses fail in the first 5 years. Why? Statistics tell us that 80-90% fail because of bad cash flow. This is how well you balance the incoming cash with the outgoing bills.
When you start out, you need to give yourself every chance to succeed and it is critical you spend your cash wisely on the right things. Buying IT equipment and software is expensive and you end up with depreciating assets right from the word go.
Here at YouCloudIT we believe you should not be paying out lots of money on equipment that goes out of date quickly – think about your TV: how expensive they are to buy and how quickly they age – you should be using cloud-based services that you pay a small amount for each month. These Where shared compute and storage resources are accessed as a service (usually online), instead of hosted locally on physical services. Resources can include infrastructure, platform or software services.... services update automatically to include the latest features and security and can be scaled up quickly when you need them or reduced just as quickly (or simply switched off) when you don’t.
This gives you much better control over your cash flow and means your valuable cash can be used elsewhere so you do not need to commit a lump sum of money at the outset. It also means you have the latest, most secure capability and you only pay for what you need.
So it’s like getting the largest TV with the best screen and the best sound and it keeps changing every month to become the newer model. Amazing!
We recommend you start with Office 365 so you have the latest versions of Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint to get you started. Office 365 also comes with a whole host of other tools that will save you time and help you be more efficient and we will show you how. You should also protect your website and your computer(s) from cyber criminals with our security bundle so you have peace of mind.
And if you want to do things properly, then we will set up your business phone system – takes 5 mins to switch it on – help you store and back up all your files and we will even put your computers in the cloud! All scalable and cost effective.
