Cloud computing

Hamish Mexted Odds & Ends, Time Saving & Processes, Xero & Addons

There’s a lot of buzz around about cloud computing – but many aren’t quite sure what it is.  In short, cloud computing is using software over the Internet.  There’s a range of applications, like your Internet banking, which can help you run your business more efficiently.

Cloud computing can help you in a number of ways.  Firstly, you don’t need to back it up meaning there’s little risk of losing your data.  You can also access it from anywhere, freeing you up to work from wherever you want to be.  It’s scalable meaning it can quickly grow with your business, it can reduce the total cost of your technology infrastructure, and can help you streamline your processes to do more with less resources.

Here’s a small selection of some apps we think are pretty good:

Xero – World’s Simplest Accounting Software
