How can start-up businesses in Essex benefit from hosted services?

Whether you are home or in an office, doing business in the cloud is a fast and reliable way of accessing files. And software programmes wherever you are. These services are redefining how small enterprises do their business. So it’s important to stay on top of the latest technologies. To ensure your company is benefiting as much as possible. Here are some of the ways your start-up can benefit from these services.

1. Easier collaboration

First of all, collaboration between employees can be hard when you’re starting out. Particularly if you don’t have an office setup yet or if certain employees work from home. Collaboration is made easy in the cloud. With the ability to save and access numerous files and work from the same document.

Furthermore, it’s also the perfect way for small business employers to track individuals’ progress on tasks. 39 Degress Services have hosted backup available with just one monthly fee and at a fraction of the cost of traditional IT infrastructure.

2. Flexibility

In addition, one of the best aspects of cloud computing is having the ability to access work files and information from any device at any time. In the mobile world we live in, the workplace has come a long way from files being stuck on a single server. This is vital for start-up business owners who will always be on the go and need to access files at any given time. One way of managing this is through Ghost’s Hosted Exchange. Which therefore enables greater freedom and flexibility in managing your communications across multiple devices.

3. Cost-effective

Perhaps the most obvious benefit is that cloud services can provide small businesses with significant savings. Doing business in the cloud and going virtual increases the value of physical server hardware. Meaning small businesses can do more with less. This means lower costs for installation. Even hardware and support costs. Which most of all is invaluable for start-ups with limited budgets.

Email Hosting: What is Email Hosting and What’s The Benefits?

As a business owner, you should be familiar with email hosting – a system that allows you to manage email servers. For example, if you’re emailing from or to someone with a domain name in their email address, they have an email hosting service i.e. @ghostservices.co.uk

Typically the web hosting company who support your domain name will also provide you with an email hosting service. However, there are some issues that are associated with using this type of hosting.

Firstly, your web hosting provider may give you a POP3 email service. This means you can only use one computer to check your device (no other devices like mobile phones or tablets) and your emails will be stored on the computer you are using. This means all the sent emails are stored with your local PC rather than a mail server.

A web hosting provider’s email server will also give you basic antivirus protection. It is good that, to some degree, they are protecting your emails from hacking and corruption. However, other email hosting providers will offer you a more intensive and structured virus prevention system.

Finally, considering their expertise in the industry lie within web hosting, it’s no wonder most web hosting providers give a basic and minimal email hosting service. With a web provider you will be given a bog standard email server and not told much about how to use it.

However, with 39 Degress Support Essex we are able to provide a unique and tailored email hosting service that is easy to manage and simple to use. Not only can you send clients emails from your bespoke domain name, but we have a number of added features to make your client emails professional and convincing such as:
