Why Cloud-Based Software Is The Future

Subscribe

The rapid advancement of technology comes as no surprise to many, especially considering the extent to which we rely on it for almost all of our day-to-day business. Cloud-based technologies are at the forefront of this movement toward a more connected and accessible world, and with so many way to access and utilise it, it is no wonder everyone from Apple to small family-run companies are hoping onboard and embracing a world with less limits.

Cloud technology drives the world around us, from our phones or smart watches, to the payment services we use every day. Almost every app, payment and communication service we use integrates with the cloud, and that is barely scraping the surface. Cloud-computing is set to revolutionise the way businesses operate, with smarter, safer, and more efficient ways to get jobs done. A change that has been brought on by the rapid advancement of technological opportunities and faster internet connections. Many mall and medium sized business owners are utilising the cloud so that they have access to the most up-to-date software with world-leading security, while still allowing them to connect a wide range of pre-existing processes and services through flexible APIs. Workflow is made seamless across devices, so no matter where you are, you have direct access to everything you need.

Cloud-Based Uber Eats

In recent months we have seen the introduction of two major cloud-based applications into the New Zealand market. The first of these is Uber Eats, the radical new service from Uber allows customers to order meals from local restaurants on their mobile phone or tablet and have it delivered directly to their door, all without having to leave the couch. While this service is currently only available in Auckland, Uber plans to expand its cloud-software dominance throughout the country within the next year or two. While it’s not the first online ordering service in New Zealand, Uber’s approach to cloud-based software in its taxi service app has proven the company’s potential to disrupt markets and drive competitors towards adopting cloud-based software, so this new service could really shake up the industry.

BP Cloud-Based Software

Even fuel stations are taking advantage of opportunities in cloud-computing, with BP recently launching “BPMe,” a mobile phone app giving customers the ability to pay for fuel from within their car, rather than paying at the pump or queueing in the store. The app also tracks fuel purchases, remembers regular top-ups & allow customers to purchase café items from their car, and while BP is the first company in New Zealand to launch this type of service, there’s no doubt that the likes of Z, Caltex, and Mobil will be hot on their heels.

In just the last few months New Zealand has seen the introduction of cloud-based products and services by many major companies, including Uber and BP, and many believe that this is just the beginning of a what could be the biggest technology trend of the decade. Large technology vendors are beginning to accelerate the global move towards cloud platforms, and are making it even easier for small business to get started and adopt cloud-based innovations into new markets. For companies like us, which live and breathe cloud-computing, access to technology that a decade ago was just a dream, is now within reach and extremely easy to integrate existing systems and processes with. This ease of access to the same technology used by the big companies is fuelling a wave of innovation in small and medium sized businesses, and setting a new standard in a range of different industries.
