- Why should I use cloud-based software solutions?

And though there are clear benefits to use of the cloud, Symphony RetailAI enables you to set up your business your way, whether it’s on the cloud or on-premise.
Here are a few reasons that firms are moving to the cloud:

- Data access – when your data is in the cloud, it’s easy to share it and collaborate with others who need it. Remote employees, partners, mobile employees all have access to the information they need. In addition, it’s easy to integrate data with applications in the cloud, or on-premise.
- Punch above your weight class – small businesses can have top-notch software solutions at their fingertips without major capital outlay. This provides strategic advantage as firms can pay as they go, reconfigure what software and services they access as they change and grow.
- Improved collaboration – imagine working on a team project where everyone has access to the latest file, and it updates as individuals edit it. No more sending around the latest file, everyone sees the latest version in the cloud.
