 “As a business grows its use of technology often develops and the decisions that need to be made during this transition can be crucial. The development of Cloud based systems is fascinating and learning the advantages of using this technology compared with traditional methods could prove invaluable.”

Vince McConville said: “We are in exciting times for small businesses with regards to technology especially in the rise of cloud solutions. By using cloud solutions SME's now have access to systems that previously were only available to larger businesses. The cloud can potentially revolutionise how small businesses work and grow.”
