Estate agents are out of the office frequently on viewings or evaluations, and access back to the systems would make life much easier. Even on a long commute, imagine having access to your desktop, programs and utilities as if you were in the office? Well imagine no-longer, Cloud Services give access from laptops, smart phones, even iPads! All of these devices have Wifi, but if you aren’t in a Wifi area, most of them have 3G which is enough to effectively connect to your Cloud Services. What’s more, if you are using Cloud VoIP, a free application installed on your smartphone will allow your mobile device to act as your office extension. Make and receive calls and the cheaper bill will appear on your VoIP bill and not your mobile!
But wait! What if you don’t have 3G or internet? Simple, you can use commonly available free applications such as Dropbox to sync any files and folders you require to your laptop, smartphone or iPad, so when the 3G or Wifi reconnects, your data is already synced to your Cloud Desktop!
One of the key benefits to Cloud Services is any device you use is essentially a dumb terminal, what this means is it contains no data. The main benefits to this are if you were to loose or have your laptop stolen, it’s not the end of the world in terms of your data, all those important documents you spent hours on are safe and sound, and it’s just the hardware you need to replace, still a pain, but not as painful as having to re-do all the work and loosing those property photo’s.
