From certain points of view, IT can seem like it’s all boxes and wires, hidden away behind the closed doors of data centres, or floating invisibly through the air in-between machines and devices. What we don’t always see however, are the real-life solutions to problems that unfold each and every day; we rarely get to witness the moments of fluidity and efficiency that having a sound IT setup can offer.
Seasonal Expansion in Retail and Events
Every business has busy periods, and in retail and e-commerce those busy periods are becoming more and more frequent, and with new sales and promotional holidays being created every year, it seems as though there’s constantly a bigger demand for business. With this in mind, these businesses will ultimately need to expand their systems’ capacity to handle the potential influx of new customer data and bigger loads of visitors to their website; but what if they only need to deal with certain aspects of increased business for say, three months of the year? A customised solution means that you can use the extra space when you need it and only pay for it when you need it, something that modern shape-shifting industries can benefit from in peak seasons.
Health and Care Organisations
In environments where records of patients are crucial to how an institution operates, it is vital that the right technology is utilised to move processes along smoothly and efficiently. Having the correct information for a patient’s medication, conditions or allergies could mean the difference between life and death, so slow or poor communications between systems could cause major errors in processing patients. A solid IT solution can ensure that patients are seen at the right times, processed correctly and no minor detail is missed out.
Remote Working – All Industries
Being able to work outside in the summer is a pipedream of many office workers, and while that’s not the only use for cloud services in a working business environment. Being able to access secure systems and software from a remote location is priceless to businesses who function on-the-go and operate on an unorthadox business model. Whether employees are in the café, working from home, or mid-meeting at a client’s office, there’s always a time when remote files and data need to be accessed.
