Cloud30 – The Details

What is Cloud 30? 
Devised specifically for SMEs on a budget, Cloud30 is a suite of standard IT products and services integrated for small to medium sized businesses using cloud computing technology. Here are the details;
Email 
Secure & spam free email for you & your staff on your PC, your laptop & your mobile.
Your email is accessible from the office, home or even abroad. Cloud30 email includes a local cache so you don’t need to be “online” to use your email. Email mailboxes can be shared if required. Cloud30 uses MS Outlook as the principle email app.
Calendar/Diary 
Also in Outlook we have shared calendars/diaries for you & your staff with the sharing permissions you want. For example, you might want colleagues to be able to see your diary but not change anything in it. Just like the email Cloud30 includes a local cache so you don’t need to be “online” to use your diary/calendar.
Contacts 
Again using Outlook you can store all your client/customer details. Typically for each
of your staff we set-up a shared company set of contacts (your customers/suppliers)
& individually a personal/private contacts Outlook folder so that you can keep business and personal separate.
Task Lists
Outlook task lists & reminders can be used individually and/or within a team so that
you can easily set tasks for staff & monitor progress as staff update their task
schedule.
Public Folders 
In addition to the standard shared Outlook folders (above) Cloud30 also uses public folders. Just like other Outlook folders, public folders can be “cached” locally so that
you don’t need to be online to use them. Examples of public folders are staff holidays and meeting rooms (calendar), general to-do lists (tasks) or notifications (email).
Files/Folders 
Cloud30 stores all your files & folders securely online. Files like your spreadsheets,
reports, PDFs, drawings & such like. In a similar way to Cloud30 email, all your
files/folders are also synchronised to your PC’s & laptops so that you & your
colleagues can all use them at the same time. All this technology is professionally
managed via our Cloud30 sync service & support helpdesk. Futher more, Cloud30
includes comprehensive backup of all your business files, folders, projects, etc.
Backup/Restore 
All Cloud30 mailboxes, files & folders are constantly being backed up. So in the
event that you accidentally loose/delete something – our technical support helpdesk
will be able to restore the data & get it back on your PC for you.
Data Archiving 
In addition to backing up your data, Cloud30 can archive as well. So for example,
with files & folders, when you complete a project Cloud30 can archive off as
“read only” all the project information. Similarly Cloud30 can even archive up to
10 years worth of emails if you wish. Email archiving uses industry compliant record
keeping, adhering to standards like Sarbanes Oxley & FSA rules.
Helpdesk/Support 
Cloud30 is a business product/service & professionally managed from our helpdesk
in Preston, Lancashire. All Cloud30 customers are fully supported with remote
control/management as well as telephone & email support.
Additional Apps
Cloud30 has a whole host of additional business apps like Evernote and Skype.
