Don't make do — aim for perfect in your cloud setup AIRPA

The perfect cloud setup doesn’t exist. Or does it?

As business owners, it can be hard to start using a new piece of technology, especially when considering the downtime and legwork it will take to maintain day-to-day. But once you’re set up, it’s worth it, right?

In our experience — as a provider of an all-in-one cloud solution — aiming for the best experience will make whatever you do far better for your business. Striving for perfection leads to better results than just going through the motions.

In today’s post, we’ll look at some of the key reasons why aiming for perfection is the best way to set your cloud services up.

Reduce your workflows

In a perfect world, your business workflows would be seamless, with each part moving together without any issues.

You’d be able to log in seamlessly, browse files across all your platforms without leaving the same screen, and access client data all at the push of a button.

Is this possible?

AIRPA actually allows you to do all of those things. In fact, one of the main selling points of our platform is how quickly you can switch between programs.

Now, you may have other programs that you’d rather keep separate, but for most of your suite — Google Drive, Teams, Xero etc — you can integrate these directly into AIRPA, saving yourself time and money in the process. 

Encourage sharing

In a perfect world, your team would share files and information freely, with minimal stress and no hang-ups over who did what.

We all know that business can be far more complicated than that — and when there are multiple people involved in a project, or helping a client, then things can go wrong.

But a lot of this is due to people being ‘siloed’ — that means using a program or completing a task independently. Some people have specialisms in different areas, so it makes sense. But in practice, this can cause rifts.

By using a hub or resource base, encouraging people to share through it and guiding them on best practices, you’ll get to the root of this problem. 

Give your team flexibility

In a perfect world, using the cloud would free up your firm to be as flexible as it wants to be — you can work abroad, have meetings from rooftop cafes and conduct reviews from the side room at a nightclub. (Alright, maybe not that last one.) The point is with the cloud, the sky’s the limit.

Of course, some people prefer a 9-5 at a regular office location. But for those who value giving constant service to their clients, and flexibility to their team, the cloud is where it’s at.

Some businesses also have security reasons for not working remotely (although VPNs and firewalls have come a long way), so again, the model needs to suit your business.

AIRPA has many flexibility features baked in and a high level of security, and given the fact you can access all your stuff from anywhere, it’s a unique tool to carry around with you.

AIRPA is the perfect cloud platform

For an accountant who values flexibility, faster workflows and sharing best practices, using AIRPA is the perfect next step for your business.
