Is Cloud Technology shaping up our Work Culture?
Using cloud communication tools is catching up a lot of heat these days, as it is increasingly becoming popular for businesses to engage and interact with their employees and audience. Realising the potential impact, businesses all over the globe are migrating from the archaic set-ups to a more connected and unified approach of communicating. Here’s how cloud technology is shaping up the modern workplaces:
More creative and collaborative workplaces on the card
Often, there is a threat of things to get lost in translation when it comes to engaging with remote working employees. Cloud communication technology is a boon here, as you can interact with your people anytime, anywhere on the go. For instance, your HR lead sitting at a remote office location can access all the critical employee details with the help of a cloud based HRMS solution. All the data pertaining to attendance, leave, payroll, tax etc. of employees working in different geographies is available at the click of a button. Such an integrated collaboration can ease the workflow ensuring that everyone stays on the same page and reduction in payroll redundancies. Yes, workplaces are changing and cloud-computing technology can help bridge the gaps. On the other hand, millennials, the most dominating workforce of today’s era prefers to stay connected 24×7 via smartphones and text messages thus, cloud communication offers a win-win situation for both employers as well as employees of the digital age.
Diverse working environments
Today, employees crave for remote working. And when a business moves its communication and processes to cloud, it opens the doors for flexibility across a remotely working workforce by enabling them to interact the way they prefer and from any device on the run. So your sales rep won’t be missing out on critical customer data during his last minute rush to closing the deal. Also, it is a great recipe to retain a happy and contended workforce in today’s era. Cloud communication makes remote working a cakewalk whilst empowering employees.

Today’s business ecosystem is turning increasingly volatile with innovative and competitive newcomers roping in in almost every industry vertical making growth a huge priority especially for the SMB sector. For any organisation to foster in today’s cutthroat era, cloud seems to be the perfect gateway to ensure that communications do not get lost in translation and stay future-proof. A business can easily scale up with a cloud platform without investing in additional hardware and maintenance stuffs thus, reducing operational costs.
SaaS is coming to enterprises
We rely on subscription-based models in our daily and personal lives. For instance, network carrier, TV services, etc. everything is subscription based. Nevertheless, when it comes to enterprise technology, businesses have been a bit sluggish in adopting the subscription-based models. As cloud computing offerings have evolved, adopting SaaS based cloud enterprise technology solutions is widely becoming a norm these days. Being pocket-friendly is one of the biggest reasons businesses are taking off with SaaS based enterprise technology solutions.
An increasing number of organisations and business leaders are realising that cloud technology is efficient and scalable. Lastly yet importantly, the cloud vendor takes full responsibility of deployment, configuration, customisation and upgrades thus, saving time and resources for a business.
