Cloud Software

Cloud SoftwareAt Sortifiable, we offer our clients fully comprehensive cloud software solutions. Our top priority is, and always will be, ensuring you minimize your costs and focus on your company’s core competencies.

Why You Need Cloud Software

Cloud-based services can help small businesses dramatically reduce their software and other computing costs. For example, Microsoft’s popular Office suite for business costs upwards of $200 for a desktop version. By comparison, Google Docs, which offers office productivity tools via the cloud, is free.

Cloud software is generally simple to use – the only things you need are a computer (or in some cases, a mobile handset), a browser, and an Internet connection. And such services require no maintenance from the user and no upgrade costs when a new version becomes available.

Finally, cloud software offers easier collaboration among team members. They no longer need to swap files or data via email or USB sticks. Your data is accessible from any computer, provided it has a working internet connection.

How Our Process Works

We typically start a cloud software engagement with a free consultation where, through an open dialogue and series of questions, we identify your ideal end state and develop an understanding of your requirements, budget, and timeline.

Once we have a clear idea about what it is you are looking for, we will put together a proposal that outlines the cloud software solution and services we will provide, along with an estimate of cost. Should you decide to accept our proposal, we will assign one of our experienced software engineers to work with you from that point forward. Your software engineer is your point of contact from start to finish and you can expect them to take care of:

Assessing

Assessing your current suite of software tools will help us and you understand which cloud-based options are available. We will look at what tools you and your employees use on a regular basis, the time and effort required to maintain the software, and how much you spend on each software package. The goal is to understand where there are opportunities to save you time and money, and provide productivity and return on investment gains.

Evaluating

Once we know what software tools you use and the opportunities for gains, we will evaluate what equivalent options are available. It is important to remember that not every desktop application has a cloud-based equivalent. We typically find that back-office products are the most common and have a wide range of options. On the other hand, specialist software is much more of a nice market and options tend to be rather scarce in the cloud. Regardless, we will present you a list of cloud software options and a recommendation based on sound research and reasoning.

Migrating

After you have selected your cloud software solution, our team will help you migrate your employees and your data to the new system. We will develop a migration plan that ensures your business continues to operate effectively throughout the transition. We will also provide a full backup of your company’s data prior to the migration and following the migration, so you have peace of mind no matter what software you are running on. Once your company is up and running on the new system, we will help remove the old software from your computers.
