Cloud Services Drive Business Growth | Essential IT Cloud Experts

Cloud Technology has become an integral part of our day to day lives some businesses are still struggling to fully integrate cloud technologies.

One of the primary reasons for this is that most cloud services are offered as boxed products rather than integrated solutions.

We offer innovative solutions such as the Hybrid Cloud and work closely with all our customers to identify services to increase features, improve end-user experience and manage costs with scalability.

Microsoft Office 365 – An Everyday Business Tool To Success

Is Microsoft Office 365 really the solution for your small business?
The answer is yes!

Microsoft Office 365 is the suite of Microsoft softwares such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Outlook, OneDrive and more. It is a suite of tools tailored to businesses who are seeking to streamline their operations and increase overall business productivity.

Microsoft Office 365 can help your employees work together and collaborate in new and more efficient ways. Outlined below are a few core reasons why business owners should implement Office 365.

Stay up and running, no matter what happens

Let’s face it. If your in-house system crashes or your office building is destroyed by a fire or flood, you’re stuck. You have no data, servers or website. If you send your data to the cloud, all your business documents and applications, such as email, will always available. You’ll be up and running, no matter what happens.

Data security

Data security in the cloud isn’t an issue with Office 365Office 365 has built-in security so small businesses can focus on the right things. You always know where your data is and who has access to it. You can also remotely wipe all data should you lose your mobile device.

So, go ahead and store your data safely in the cloud. Storing your data online also keeps it safe in case something unfortunate happens. Imagine losing your laptop or breaking it? Thanks to 1TB of OneDrive online storage, your data is safer than ever before.

You and your employees can work anywhere at anytime

Working remotely used to mean you needed help from an IT friend or cousin to set up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) so you could access your files from the office. With Office 365, this isn’t necessary. You don’t need any special configuration or IT skills. An internet connection is all you need and then you can start working. It’s that simple!

Organisation has never been so easy

Meetings, email and contact management are a big part of everyday life in a small business. When you use Office 365, email, calendar and contacts are all synchronised. Update a contact on your mobile phone and it will be automatically updated across all your devices. This is a really cool feature to help small businesses get the most from Office 365. You can also access the same data from any device. Save a document on your PC and continue working on it on your mobile or tablet.

Cloud Computing – The Future of Business IT Operations

We are hearing more and more about cloud computing these days – but what is cloud storage, and how can it benefit your business?

To learn more about cloud computing and what it means please click here.

The fact is that you’re probably already using the cloud without even realising it.

If you use a web-based email provider such as Gmail or Hotmail, you are using the cloud. If you’ve ever used Skype video calling or video interfaces like Vimeo or YouTube, you’ve used the cloud. If you’ve ever backed up data on the Internet rather than an external device, you’ve used the cloud.

Cloud computing has a great number of benefits — here are our top three

  1. Cost Savings

One of the most appealing reasons to switch to the cloud is the cost savings. With cloud computing, the need to pay for large amounts of disk and storage space is instantly removed as well as the need for buying, installing and upgrading pricey software. With the cloud, you’ll pay for applications only when needed and many applications are included free of charge. Usage can easily be scaled to fit your needs and adjusted for peaks or troughs in demand.

This “a la carte,” incremental way of paying can save your business a lot of money. Pay-per-use reduces (or in some cases eliminates) the cost of maintaining in-house servers. The savings applies to your desktop, too — with SaaS (software as a service), desktop software need not be installed, which saves your business both time and money.

  1. Ease of Use

Quite simply, cloud computing is easy to get up and running. Instead of having to download and/or install software yourself, in the cloud it is all done for you. The cloud also offers virtually unlimited storage capacity relative to typical hard drive and server limits. The cloud is also adaptable. If you need more storage, it’s instantly available for a slightly larger fee per month. Since your business data is stored in the cloud, your employees will be able to access software and data anywhere from nearly any device that has Internet connection.

  1. Flexibility and Scalability.

Cloud computing also offers far more flexibility compared to past computing methods. Staff will no longer be tethered to their desk. Those days are gone. Staff will be able to access files and data from wherever they are, 24 hours a day. Scaling your cloud storage can be done with ease on an as-needed basis and you only pay for what you are actually using. In the past, making changes to your service could take months. Now, with the cloud, this can be done in minutes.

With the cloud, your staff will be able to access information from home, from clients’ offices, on the road, or even from their smartphone. Your staff members can also work collaboratively on documents and files, even when they are not physically in the same room. Also, documents can be viewed as well as edited simultaneously from multiple user locations.

The cloud could very well be exactly what your company needs.

PXB Phones & Cloud PXB Phones

At Essential IT we pride ourselves on delivering cost-effective IT products like Cloud PXB Phones to help your business reduce costs.

“Simplifying IT”

We work with small and medium size businesses throughout Sydney. We help integrate information technologies into your business so that you can save time, cut costs and spend more time on your business!

Replacing your ageing phone system.  VoIP, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) was originally designed to imitate the architecture of copper wire legacy telephone networks. Today, customers are celebrating the benefits of this technology and exploring all of what a VoIP solution is capable of providing.

Why VoIP ?

VoIP runs both voice and data over the same circuit — this efficient set up is favoured by businesses of all sizes for reducing monthly costs. VoIP also has more capabilities than legacy phone systems and can provide advanced features with simple add-on charges. VoIP’s flexibility allows for feature changes with the click of a mouse instead of manual labour.

Because VoIP uses software instead of hardware, changes and network maintenance can be implemented in a fraction of the time it would take legacy voice systems, and at a fraction of the cost. VoIP is praised as being superior to traditional voice technology in cost and architecture, but the true benefit of VoIP has been proven in the last year with the dawning of Unified Communications (UC).

Unified Communications at the Forefront

The basic features of legacy telephone networks are included in VoIP (call forwarding, Direct Inward Dial (DID), hold, 3-way-call, caller ID, etc.). What is remarkable is that adding in a UC platform that revolutionizes how a company communicates is as simple as an add-on request or, in some cases, is already included. What is expected in an out of the box UC solution includes video conferencing, voicemail to email, fax to email, chat, mobility, and presence.

An increasing number of businesses are deploying multi-channel communication with their customers and within their organizations. This can be implemented easily over an existing VoIP setup.

As Business VoIP keeps gaining momentum are finding that they are spending more on IT resources to maintain their new VoIP systems. This is why ESSENTIAL IT Cloud PBX solutions provide the logical answer to controlling these costs. Our Cloud PBX solutions reside in secure Telco Data centers where they are maintained by our watchful engineers 24x7x365 to ensure our customers are always up and running.

Cloud PBX solutions and VoIP solutions enable companies to derive the cost savings of Business VoIP together with the benefits of advanced features that maximize efficiency and company productivity – all without the hassles of housing and maintaining a highly expensive phone system on site.

Key Benefits of Cloud PBX Phone Systems

Cost Savings

  • Fixed monthly pricing on long-distance and local US calling with low international rates.
  • Connect to geographically dispersed offices with internal office extensions all on the same system!
  • Managed Quality of Service (QoS) reduces IT costs.

Save Time and Boost Productivity

Stay connected with unified communications, which eliminates the limitations typically encountered while out of the office or not being next to your phone to check the availability of people within your company.

Easily Monitor Employee Productivity

Especially in industries such as sales, where serious phone time is logged, productivity means everything. For example, being able to monitor how long a particular salesperson spends on a call is an excellent way to monitor your staff’s productivity.

Failover Redundancy

If your phone’s connection ever goes off-line temporarily, ESSENTIAL IT is automatically alerted to your lost connection and automatically forwards all inbound calls to pre-defined back-up numbers that each phone has the ability to pre-set. Your customers will never know that your Internet connection is down.
