Gradwell Cloud’s website builder is an easy to use design interface that allows you, the user, to have full control over the way your website looks and acts.
Want a quick redesign? Our website builder has thousands of design options to choose from and allows you to rebrand your whole site with only a quick drag and drop.
But giving your site a new lick of paint isn’t all Gradwell Cloud’s Web Builder does; it also gives you the ability to sync your website with your social media channels, add an online store and measure your traffic with our site analytic services.
With Gradwell Cloud you won’t need to worry about formulating a complicated disaster recovery plan, thanks to Gradwell Cloud Fileshare.
Our Fileshare feature means all of your important files are backed up in the cloud, accessible wherever you are in the world. So if the worst does happen you can relax, safe in the knowledge that all of your sensitive and irreplaceable data is safe and sound in the cloud.
Gradwell Cloud Lync does exactly what it says on the tin – ensures your business is fully linked on a whole new level.
Lync will connect your website in a way that you’ve never experienced before, allowing your employees to keep in touch using cross-platform instant messaging, video conferencing and voice calls.
With Gradwell Cloud your employees will be able to work from anywhere in the world; all they need is internet access. Such flexibility is great for staff morale and studies have shown that employees are often more productive when working from home than when working in an office.
Lync’s presence awareness features mean it’s easy for employees to collaborate wherever they are in the world, whether they’re sitting five metres from each other or five thousand miles away in offices a continent apart.
Lync Meetings allows you to host audio and video meetings between colleagues, suppliers and customers, bringing people from all over the world into one online meeting room.
Without Gradwell Cloud you may find yourself sending documents back and forth to colleagues via email; this can really slow down your working speed as it means only one person can work on the document at a time, meaning your timescales are held up by another party.
However, with cloud storage you can keep all of your documents in one virtual location, so everybody can work off of one copy without having to pass it back and forth. It means you and your colleagues can communicate while making changes, to increase your efficiency and productivity.
Believe it or not, one of the big advantages of cloud computing is that it really can save your business money. Cloud computing will use less electricity as you will require less hardware to power your company, so savings can be made on both utility bills and equipment.
It never hurts to implement an environmentally friendly solution, and moving to cloud-based services can really help decrease your company’s energy consumption.
Using cloud computing means you’ll have less need for extensive server space, which cuts down on your carbon emissions. Recent research by WSR suggests that a company using cloud computing can emit up to 95% less carbon than a similar company using traditional systems. With stats like that, what’s not to like?
