There are three major benefits for organisations using Cloud based IT services.
The first is cost.
The reduction of hardware and infrastructure and the ability to only pay for what you use will generally mean that you will save money over a traditionally purchased "on-premise" solution.
The second is people efficiency.
The ability to securely access you data and work whenever and wherever you want will increase efficiency and staff satisfaction.
The third benefit is about organisational agility by using IT as you need it,
as a whole or within smaller teams. Removing much of the need of significant upfront investment in hardware and software licenses mean that the organisation can react and move faster.
Cloud based services are often described as being more environmentally efficient and to a large degree this is true. The ability to run servers at a much higher utilisation because of scale reduces the carbon footprint of the service.
Securing your business
There has been much discussion about data security. Indeed it can be very hard for an organisation to recover quickly from a major data loss. Security is a multi-layered problem from physical security of a building, passwords, data access and management of threats and attacks. Companies who are storing data on your behalf normally take data security very seriously; however there are exceptions, which is why at Acuity we are very careful in our own due diligence on what sort of company we will work with. We have chosen to work with some of the best well known brands out there but we are also happy to work with a smaller provider if their approach to security is strong and robust.

Not until now that is. We at Acuity have recently launched a package of services that covers just about all our customer's need.
