3 Benefits of Cloud-Based Time and Attendance to Improve Productivity
- nettime solutions staff
Each day as servers get older and appear to be reaching the end of their lifespans, organizations are making the choice to send their data to the cloud. Most companies today are accessing at least one of their tech services via the cloud. Whether it’s getting your email through Google or managing customer relationships via Salesforce, you’re more than likely very familiar with cloud-based software. In fact, you appreciate many of the benefits of truly cloud-based Software as a Service, such as lower learning curves, painless upgrades and seamless integration — all benefits that improve your employees’ productivity and increase your profit margins.
Let’s dive deeper into some of the benefits of truly multitenant, cloud-based time and attendance software:
Lower IT Costs
When you choose cloud-based time and attendance, you avoid the overhead that is associated with implementing conventional software and purchasing and maintaining servers to store your data. If you already have experienced IT personnel on staff, are there other projects those individuals could be working on? Or, if you don’t have the infrastructure of an IT department, have you considered the added expense of either hiring IT professionals or contracting an agency to service your organization?
Access to Innovation
If you have experience with licensing software, you know that even though the software company has come out with new improvements, you’re going to have to wait for the next software release to gain access to that innovative technology. There may even be hardware and other support-related repercussions of upgrading your software. However, with a cloud-based model, you’ll have access to these innovations on a regular basis. In fact, with cloud-based time and attendance like stratustime, software updates are deployed every two weeks, so you and your team will always have access to the very latest we have to offer.
It might sound counterintuitive to think that your data will be more secure “up in the cloud” than right in your own server room, but should some form of a disaster unfortunately strike (such a natural disasters or security breaches), your data will be safe and secure, and you’ll be able to get up and running easily from anywhere in the world via the Internet. In fact, a nettime solutions client located in the Gulf Coast states of Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi came to this realization after Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc on thousands of businesses. While their headquarters were fortunately not affected by the hurricane, it was then that they really prioritized the security and resilience of their data.
