Choose the right cloud IT service provider to maximize savings and efficiency
Once you decide to move to the cloud, you need to choose the right provider. The wrong choice can bring headaches of its own.
To save the most money, you’ll want to consolidate as many services you can under one vendor. This enables you to take advantage of bundled pricing. It’s also a good idea to choose a vendor with flat monthly costs/user. It will make budgeting easier, and you won’t have to worry about how much data storage or calling minutes you use. Having one vendor also means one relationship to manage, one bill, one support number to call and one service/user management interface to deal with.
Make sure your provider offers 24/7 technical support. That way, all of your offices can be helped in real-time. Also, it’s a good idea to look for a vendor who provides expert onboarding and migration at no extra charge. That will save you money and reduce the likelihood of migration errors that can come from having to utilize a third-party vendor for the process.
