Smart businesses are asking what’s driving the rush to the cloud—and they’re getting solid answers. Below you can find the 5 reasons why so many businesses are moving communications to the cloud today:

1. Cost

By hosting a phone system over the Internet, businesses are charged on an “as needed” basis, paying only for what they use. That makes cloud-based communication systems especially cost-effective for small businesses—eliminating the need to pay for the installation and maintenance of a traditional phone system.

2. Scalability

Whether a business is growing, moving or sizing down, the cloud provides the flexibility and scalability the business needs now and in the future. And with cloud-based systems, businesses can access and add new features without any new hardware requirements.

3. Technology

With cloud communications, service is outsourced, and upgrades are deployed through automatic software updates. This allows organizations to stay focused on their business and leave the upgrades to the cloud communications vendor.

4. Disaster recovery

With cloud communications, businesses can get up and running quickly after a disaster, or in some cases, continue running the entire time. Some reroute calls to remote locations and cell phones. Others rely on remote access to voicemail or use cloud-based auto attendants continue taking calls and providing information. It’s a hard-to-resist combination of reliability, resiliency and redundancy.

5. Simplicity

Easy to use interface. With a cloud-based interface, it’s easy for employees to talk, chat, collaborate and connect anytime through a single platform.
