The IT industry today is all about accessibility and how employees can view and work with corporate assets anywhere at any time. Cloud computing and bring-your-own-device policies have formed this model in recent years, becoming a fixture in how staff members operate on a daily basis.
Cloud computing is a transformative technology because it offers functionality similar to on-site hardware, but without the management resources required to maintain the environment. Instead, a third-party service provider handles these tasks, allowing organizations to refocus on more internal and mission-critical endeavors.
BYOD is another cost-saving option for businesses that want to support a productive and happy workforce. Rather than purchasing and distributing corporate-owned phones and tablets, firms offering BYOD simply allow workers to leverage their personal gadgets for work-related purposes. Companies save money while people use products they are already familiar with. It’s a win-win situation for both parties.
The relationship between the cloud and mobile devices is a perfect match, since staff members can access documents, email and communicate with coworkers and customers through their laptops, tablets and smartphones through the Internet, delivering office capabilities regardless of location.
How CRM suites benefit from the cloud and BYOD
Customers today expect service from businesses around the clock, no questions asked. This requires companies to always be online, which is possible with a cloud environment in place to support this necessity.
The capabilities of cloud and mobile computing integrate nicely with customer relationship management suites such as Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Organizations that take this cloud, mobile and customer first mentality stand to benefit greatly from improving communication between sales representatives and clients. Personnel using these powerful tools always have the most updated information at their fingertips – a critical advantage when meeting with prospective companies for the first time.
The most prepared employees will have no trouble accessing Microsoft Dynamics CRM through their laptops, tablets and smartphones to compare year-over-year sales and current statistics showing a new business that their vendor offers better pricing and wider profit margins over the competition.
