Cloud Services

What is the Cloud?

Cloud Services

Did you realise we are currently experiencing one of the most exciting developments in business? That is, Cloud computing, and Real Balance is right at the frontline.
Cloud computing refers to the provision of computing services from a remote cloud-server that provides software, files and documents to anyone that has shared-access and an internet-enabled device.

The Cloud is not new, Microsoft and Google and agile cloud developers like Xero are revolutionising the way small business operates. Data no longer needs to be stored on expensive, in-house computer systems that require constant maintenance, software upgrades and anti-virus protection. Data can be stored on secure online servers that are regularly backed up and accessible from many locations.

Real Balance will show you how Cloud-based accounting, scheduling, calendars, email, project management and cloud-based file servers can help you create and share information online: making it more convenient and easier for business controllers to make smart business decisions.
