What is the Cloud? How is the Cloud Edition Different from other eDoc Organizer Editions?
The term “Cloud” is very common these days, so what exactly does it mean? The “Cloud” is another way of saying over the internet. It is most often used when referring to storing and accessing data over the internet to some remote server. The opposite of storing data in the cloud is storing data on your hard drive, otherwise known as locally.
So why pick the cloud storage over local storage? Simply put, accessibility. The cloud allows you to access your information from anywhere you have access to a device and the internet. This means if you forget to print out a form from home, you can log on and print it from the office. Today with the availability of internet on most mobile devices, you can even access your information on the go from your phone or tablet. Not only will this save you time, stress and energy, but many would argue it’s the direction of the future. Over 80% of businesses are using or are looking at using the cloud within the next year. The cloud isn’t just for businesses though, everyone can benefit from using the cloud. More accessibility to the information we need only makes us more efficient, giving us more time to concentrate on what matters.
eDoc Organizer offers both local and cloud solutions. Our On-Premise Edition is local, meaning all your content is stored on your own hard drive or storage device. Our Cloud solution stores your information in secure Microsoft data centers. eDoc Organizer Cloud edition is designed for individuals, families and businesses of all sizes. You can completely customize your cloud document management solution to fit your needs.
The cloud is also a great alternative for businesses that can’t or don’t want to invest in servers and licensing costs upfront. By allowing you to pay for what you use and spreading the cost of your document management software over time, the cloud allows a “pay as you go” affordable solution to document management.
Understanding your options allows for you to choose the solution that’s right for you. Give us a call and we would be happy to discuss your needs and find the right solution for you. We also offer free 15 day trials of our Cloud and On-Premise Editions, so you can try out our solutions risk free.
