Cloud4 Computers has grown its services over the many years we’ve been in the cloud industry. We’re proud to announce that we have recently expanded our services for businesses. We’ve got quite a few services which we’ve added over recent months which can greatly increase the mobility and flexibility of your workflow. From communication and collaboration tools to mobile deals to keep all your work data with you wherever you are.
Firstly, there’s Microsoft Lync 2013. Although we’ve talked about it in a previous blog, it is still fairly new as a service. Microsoft Lync is the evolution of the old messaging client that came preinstalled on Windows called “Windows Live Messenger”, though it was often nicknamed as “MSN”. Lync shares many characteristics of Windows Live Messenger but does so on a business level. It integrates with PBX phone systems, remote desktop systems, provides whiteboard functions, allows for conference voice and video conversations, and provides most of the functions that MSN did such as the ability to share files, read through previous conversations, and set things such as availability statuses to inform people what you’re up to.
SharePoint is a web-only application with no desktop side client, which makes deployment much easier. It works a bit like a professional forum where users can start threads and contribute to conversations between co-workers. SharePoint integrates with Office Web Apps and desktop Microsoft Office applications like Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel. It also integrates with Yammer – the professional social network that Microsoft acquired – to allow its users to use the features of SharePoint. It’s a fantastic tool for any small to medium sized business that wants to take advantage of internal connections within their business through a highly customisable and flexible system.
Another new service we offer is Online File Sharing – a cloud storage and sharing solution for small businesses. It’s by far one of the simplest and easiest solutions to use. It has a tonne of great features both hosted and when deployed in-house. You can use it to simply access your data remotely or you can, with the right tools installed, you can use it as entire cloud suite. When execute in-house, you can install any of the many small applets which allow services like video streaming, image viewing, Document reading, Contact management, Message boards – the list goes on. It really can be an alternative to SharePoint if implemented correctly within a business.
In addition to the cloud services, we have recently started offering mobile deals. Cloud4 offers a range of business oriented tariffs on a variety of networks such as EE, O2, Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone. Your business can choose from a variety of handsets running Android, iOS, Blackerry OS or Windows Phone with a variety of plans. We also offer tablets, PDA’s and various other rugged handsets from vendors such as Bluebird-Pidion, Catchwell and M3 Mobile. Our handsets also integrate with our hosted services such as Hosted Exchange, Desktops, Lync, SharePoint and our Online File Storage solutions. In addition, you can get a free Hosted Exchange email for up to 12 months with selected tariffs. You even get to keep your own number.
Finally, we offer Fibre Lease broadband. This is a dedicated fibre internet line which can deliver internet speeds of 100mbps with the option of having static IP addresses. With an uncontended leased connection, your business will experience a dramatic boost in internet performance. You’ll be able to stream high definition video, download data faster and upload data quicker than ever before.
