The internet is incredibly powerful in the modern business world, with many already embracing new technology. A high-speed connection is essential for efficient day to day operations such as using cloud based tools, IP telephony, applications and file transfers. But with a dependable, super-fast broadband connection a business can take full advantage of cloud-based tools to boost productivity, improve service quality and increase growth.
Traditional business software applications, such as HR, CRM and Accounts, are increasingly moving to the cloud, and most back-ups are now done online. Fast business broadband speeds are no longer a luxury, they are a necessity, and super-fast speeds can be achieved for most businesses with a combination of fibre optic cabling and traditional copper wire phone lines.
By offering access to the business networks and cloud platforms improves flexibility – meaning multiple users can share a secure workspace and collaborate on projects from any location. Cloud hosting also gives you the advantage of working remotely, so everyone in your business can access data across multiple offices or different locations on the go. With Computer Solutions Wales, you can be sure your data is stored safely and securely by professionals who care about your business. With useful applications, you can quickly back-up your data remotely, ensuring peace of mind and secure, easy retrieval of documents.
Technology is always evolving, with companies using an increasing number of internet-capable devices including IP telephony, smartphones, tablets as well as cloud-based tools such as video conferencing, data storage, online payments and other e-commerce functions. Fibre optic broadband, for example, ensures sufficient bandwidth for a large number of employees without a drop in speed during busy times – improving the flow of communication and quality of service you offer to customers.
Although initial costs can be higher than standard internet lines it’s only when you are without a connection you realise the cost of poor quality internet. Superfast broadband provides efficient improvements and cost savings, through developed online sales and marketing, improved online ordering and invoicing, enhanced video conferencing and VoIP services, and improved access to cloud-based services.
According to research nearly half of businesses agree if their broadband connection improved, it would allow them to use more cloud-based services, transfer large files and allow remote server access for employees. Applications such as Office 365 operate over the internet and can be stored on any device – with access to familiar tools such as Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. All documents are stored online helping improve productivity – functional from any location, anytime.

With a dependable VoIP connection, calls can be received from any portable device such as a laptop or mobile phone by linking up all equipment and in office computer applications. Perfect for businesses with multiple offices and field-based employees – resulting in effective unified communications.
