There’s no need to ask “What is the cloud?” anymore. Everyone in Kansas City has heard of the cloud, and everyone has an idea of what it means – access to information via the Internet, instead of saving files directly onto your computer. So that’s all well and good, and everyone talks about how great the cloud is. But a lot of people miss what the truly important question is:

What does the cloud mean for YOUR business?

At Hanebutt, we don’t just provide access to cloud services. That on its own is not enough to truly leverage the power of the cloud. Instead, we are focused on Cloud Consulting – working with you to learn what the right solutions are for YOUR needs, and then ensuring you know how to take advantage of them in the right ways to get the most out of them. It’s not just about adapting services to your business; it’s about adapting your business to the power of your technology.

Let’s talk about what cloud services are right for YOUR Kansas City business. Contact us today at (913) 8_97-8000 or send an email to info@hanebutt.com.

There are a lot of benefits to the cloud that any business can take advantage of:

  • Easy accessibility for you and your staff members, letting you collaborate on documents and projects from anywhere you can get online.
  • Increased speed & reliability from streamlined systems that aren’t bogged down by aging hardware, increasing your productivity.
  • Affordability that lets you customize exactly what technology your business has access to and optimizes the solutions you already use.
  • Scalability that lets you adapt your technology to evolve as your business does, so you never pay for more than what you need every day.
  • Security for all your data and systems in the cloud, making sure you get multiple layers of protection so you never have to worry about your data being lost or misused.

That’s all well and good, but it doesn’t tell you what the cloud can actually DO for you. That’s what we’re here to help with.

Remote Communications

One of the great powers of the cloud is to mobilize your communications. You can free yourself from the desk and communicate whenever, wherever you want, whether that’s through:

  • A VoIP phone network that you can access on any Internet-enabled device,
  • Email that isn’t based out of your office server,
  • Internet-based forums and other portals and platforms to share information and documents,

You can take this to the next step of actually working with team members that aren’t based in your office. You could be based in Kansas City, but you could have members working in Georgia, Toronto, and Berlin – all talking to each other in real time and working on the same files. If you’re going to do that, though, the dynamic in your business will change, and you’ll need to take advantage of all those methods of mobile communications.

  • We’ll discuss how cloud technologies impact your workflow, and how to adapt to the changes with a minimum of disruption, keeping the tasks flowing smoothly among your staff.
  • Ultimately, constant communication is key, so make sure you take advantage of all the methods of communication you can.
  • We’ll also talk about how to use your cloud services to organize your team’s day and set realistic expectations for everyone involved, so your team stays productive and you maintain control over the day’s work.

Virtual Systems

There are many different services out there to take advantage of the cloud, and not all of them are for you. To find out what IS right for your needs, we’ll work together to analyze your business needs and operations and match those needs with the right cloud solution.

  • Remote file sharing can make it easy to collaborate on projects and documents from a single source, and you can include clients and vendors in your service to make sending large files a breeze.
  • Our virtualization solution can consolidate all the applications you use and put them into a hosted system that can be accessed out of the cloud, so you can work on your office systems from home or on the go.
  • Microsoft Office 365 is a great example of a comprehensive cloud system that you can access on the go for all the power of the regular Office suite, including your email from Outlook.

That said, you’ll want to ensure that you use your tools correctly if you’re going to put them to the test and allow remote working. That’s why we don’t just provide the service – we talk about how to use it.

  • The right size and scope of service to match your needs, taking into account your budget, number of users, and what you’ll be sharing among your staff.
  • Creating a set of procedures, standards, and guidelines for how to use your services to share files, work on projects, and stay organized.
  • We’ll discuss any training needed for applications and mobile devices to ensure everyone involved stays efficient and productive.

Ultimately, though, we want to know what YOU want the cloud to do for you. There is a lot of potential built up in the cloud, and it’s worth the hype – but only if you have the right plan to make it work for you.
