Atera transforms the way Cloudscape does business
Gartner found that “many business and IT leaders see the customer experience as a sustainable source of competitive differentiation.” It became clear to Cloudscape that they needed to improve processes to ensure the company was providing a best-in-class experience to clients. Mike turned to Atera for help improving their processes and systems, that would in-turn offer a better experience to their customers. Gartner expects cloud migration to affect $1 trillion in IT spending by the end of 2020, making cloud computing one of the most disruptive technologies today, promising lucrative opportunities for those ready to meet this demand. With Atera, Cloudscape is set up to capitalize on the cloud opportunity in the market.
An all-in-one platform to centralize operations
Atera opened the door to truly transformational tools and resources that have helped Cloudscape thrive. Remote access for support purposes, online backups and monitoring, time recording, and ticketing are now all centralized via the Atera platform. Mike believes the system saves him an estimated 14 hours each month just on preparing the timesheets. Pleased with these time and cost savings, he is also leveraging the QuickBooks integration, which replaced his accounting and invoicing system. “With our increasing number of clients, the platform definitely makes all the overhead tasks easier as it automates so many processes and stops mistakes from happening,” Mike explained. “We have new people joining our team soon and we will start them on Atera straight away. With the platform in place, Cloudscape is well prepared for further growth.”
