Prolocity has helped businesses embrace the trend of Cloud Computing, which has substantially improved during the recession and has made an impact on economic growth in a few key ways:
Cloud Computing Empowers Startups
SaaS solutions such as Salesforce provide entrepreneurs everything they need to launch start-ups, right in the cloud, with hardly any IT costs or upfront investments. Prolocity is a perfect example of this. Since Prolocity’s inception as a start-up, they have been able to utilize the world’s most powerful technologies, such as Salesforce, but at a cost they could afford. Through the years, that technology has grown with them, as the business has grown, enabling incredible flexibility and scalability for the business. Additionally, Cloud Computing is instigating more growth for businesses, which results in creating more jobs.
Cloud Computing Creates New Lines of Business
Good business is about having outstanding relationships between the company and its customers, or between the company and its suppliers. Cloud Computing opens up new lines of business in IT and service delivery, creating new niches that start-up companies can cater to.
With all of this growth in the local economy, Prolocity is dedicated to helping businesses achieve great potential by using technology as the enabler. Prolocity’s cloud consultants deliver strategy, design, implementation, training, and optimization services to ensure that businesses are getting the most out of the technology. Their solutions leverage the world’s #1 cloud platform, Salesforce, to deliver best-in-class solutions and accelerate success!
