It is now widely recognised that Cloud software solutions offer users quick and easy implementation, automatic upgrades and levels of data security that individual organisations would struggle to achieve.
For me, there is also another largely unrecognised benefit that stems from the above. That is Cloud software systems offer organisations the opportunity to achieve improvements immediately even if it is not the complete solution the organisation is ultimately looking for.
With low purchase prices, ease of implementation, ease of data transfer and no long term commitments the rewards for acting now rather than waiting are bigger and more achievable than ever before.
Why sit, wait and spend a lot of money for the ultimate solution when you can have a low cost partial solution immediately?
You might even find that the “stop-gap” solution actually meets the majority of your most important requirements and your provider is likely to be highly motivated to make the necessary changes to meet all of your requirements as soon as possible.
If you can make an improvement today why wait for tomorrow?
