Despite the innumerable proven benefits associated with cloud technology, there are too many auto repair companies who insist on using outdated and inefficient modes of technology. If you want to take your garage to the next level, you are going to have to adapt. Tekmetricauto repair software operates on cloud, here are some of the main advantages.
You Can Work Anywhere
Have you ever left your office that’s an hours drive from your home, and then realized that you had forgot to do something on the computer? With cloud, you can log on anywhere there is an internet connection. There are multiple problems that arise when using one computer system that has the software installed on it. Firstly, if the system crashes, you have basically lost all information until it can be restored again. Second, you are bound to one location, desktops are not easy to move from one room to the next, and neither can you take it home or to the café if you fancy working there.
So, instead of having to stay in the office until all hours of the night, you can go home by your Lease Ford Fiesta and log on to the auto repair software on your laptop and do your work in comfort.
Hard drives are eventually going to fail, there is no way of getting around this fact. If you are lucky and the failure is not that serious, there is a chance that you canretrieve the information. But a bad failure, means that you have lost important data and you won’t be able to get it back unless you have backed it up on an external hard drive.Such a catastrophic event can be detrimental to your business. One of the many great features of the auto repair software is that it performs multiple backups across all servers, so you will never have to worry about losing information.
One of the main obstacles that prevent companies from switching to cloud is security. The assumption is that because of the name “cloud” their information is just floating out in cyber space, providing criminals with easy access. The full-time job of a cloud host is to monitor security. This is a lot more efficient than using security software which generally isn’t the most reliable, or a company will have an in-house IT team who has to deal with a broad spectrum of issues as well as security. A team that is not solely focused on security makes a company even more susceptible to security breaches.
