n’cloud VIRTUAL OFFICE – The virtual workplace
Today’s IT of a company has the role of a real service department. It also covers issues such as cost-efficient IT operations, data security, failure security, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), mobility and much more. In fact, only a few IT service providers are in a position to actively contribute to all these topics, as well as to offer appropriate solutions. With n’cloud, Netkom IT Services GmbH has launched an innovative cloud platform with different service packages since 2009, which also guarantees a high degree of future orientation.
n’cloud VIRTUAL OFFICE is the virtual workplace for businesses. The system is characterized by a perfectly organized work area and integrates all workstations and employees. Simplified, the virtual office is a very large virtual office building. The latter consists of different floors, which can be rented individually. Once a floor has been rented in this building, the property owner, in this case Netkom IT Services GmbH, provides a number of high-quality services, which are necessary to work. These include a caretaker who is maintaining data and equipment, a cleaning person that ensures structure and cleanliness, as well as a security service that takes care of the infrastructure day and night. Each package is available at fixed monthly rates and can be combined individually for each user.
n’cloud VIRTUAL OFFICE is the complete package with the latest Microsoft Office products including HOSTED EXCHANGE, all necessary licenses, a secure BACKUP of company data as well as the possibility to include company specific programs such as accounting, ERP or CRM in the package.
One of the most important features of n’cloud VIRTUAL OFFICE is the possibility of «Bring your own device – BYOD». Due the strong interconnectedness of our world and the company presence at various locations, both on a regional and international level, sales representatives are no longer the only employees on the move. The n’cloud VIRTUAL OFFICE also allows access to company data and programs while on travel, on vacation or at dinner with friends – at any time and from anywhere, whether with a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. In order to ensure security, only the company has the key to decide which employees, company partners or even external users are allowed to log in when and where. It is also important to note that the data is stored in highly secure data centre in Switzerland.
Comparison between a local IT infrastructure and a cloud infrastructure
As the above graphic shows impressively, costs for n’cloud VIRTUAL OFFICE only arise for actually used products in combination with the number of users. This number can be extended or reduced at any time. In addition, the virtual office always remains state-of-the-art. In terms of data protection, flexibility and financing, you are always on the safe side. As with the rent, the services are paid for a fixed monthly amount. In comparison, savings are higher than expenses, for example, to cover expensive costs of acquiring infrastructure, servers, maintenance or licensing costs. IT costs can be planned and are absolutely transparent. With n’cloud VIRTUAL OFFICE, you save yourself the expenses for valuable hardware, maintenance and resources. In addition, instead of expensive PCs, so-called cheaper ThinClients can be used as a working instrument at fixed workstations.
