Cloud-based business systems are growing in popularity and can deliver huge gains for businesses, as long as the broadband connectivity is up to scratch. For Colour Connection in Gloucester, poor broadband connectivity was restricting the use of a new cloud-based MIS System as well as preventing flexible, remote working for employees. A telecoms and IT health check identified the most suitable solution and now the business can fully utilise the systems, support their staff, and have even upgraded the security system too.
The SCG Solution
For print and design business Colour Connection, based just outside Gloucester, poor broadband connectivity in the area was creating challenges for the business. The lack of a quality broadband connection was preventing the full use of a Cloud MIS system, which would support the business and enable flexible working for staff, with remote working capabilities.
SCG conducted a free Telecoms and IT health check, identifying the challenges that the business faces and selecting appropriate solutions. Installation of a new Ethernet Broadband line has opened up new possibilities for the business, supporting migration to a cloud-based MIS system, enabling better flexible and remote working for staff, and even enabling an upgrade of the security systems at the business premises. Benefits of the health check include cost-savings made through disconnecting
unnecessary phone lines, enhancing security through the installation of a door entry system and improvements to the CCTV cameras and increasing the work capacity through better connectivity.
