Best Small Businesses to Use the Cloud

Best Small Businesses to Use the Cloud

Google and Amazon, juggernauts they may be, are not the only beneficiaries of cloud computing. Small businesses across the country have also realized the cloud’s capacity to nourish their operations. We could have honestly cited dozens of companies nationwide who’ve wholeheartedly taken to cloud computing — and reaped massive rewards. Look for us to indeed feature more of these small businesses in the future. For the moment, here’s an impressive trio that’s taken to the cloud with the greatest of ease.

Signature Personal Insurance, Roper DeGarmo

Well known cloud applications and programs like Salesforce and Dropbox helped Roper vastly improve the marketing and communicative strength of SPI, an insurance company informed by wealth management. It safeguards all sorts of assets for clients, include jewelry, vacation condos, and second homes. It also caters to those who own 5 or more automobiles, as well as to clients who own property located in regions prone to hurricanes and other natural disasters. Many shy away from cloud computing’s security risks, especially those in the insurance community. Yet Roper actually sees strength in the cloud. He’s been quoted as saying, it’s much more secure for me to host my data on servers managed by professionals that are constantly looking at security and backups.”

Bottom-Line Consulting, Bob Everett

Bob’s consulting company stands out for its sundry range of features supporting other businesses. Start-ups can head to Bottom Line to develop their business plan, handle tax paperwork, and secure liability insurance. Bottom Line also delves into QuickBook Accounting and marketing for its clients. Cloud computing helped Bob save more than $4,000 — not a small chunk of change for a small business. The technology slashed the company’s power bill and maintenance costs, while streamlining its use of e-mail and virus protection.

Seriatim, Sonya Weisshappel

Sonya shepherds a petite fleet of a dozen employees to the end of organizing homes and de-cluttering businesses. Seriatim, based in New York City, now serves clients from coast to coast. Her professional company lends structural harmony to a variety of those in need of it: divorcees and the recently bereaved are targeted, as are architects and life coaches. These latter pros can use Seriatim as an organizing service for their very own clients. Sonya moved to the cloud to improve her business’s accessibility. Via QuickBase, a cloud computing database service, she’s considering using cloud inventory app to help construct her own home inventory system.
