What Superfast Broadband Technology can do for your business
The arrival of Superfast Broadband is transforming the way that businesses operate – and that includes even the smallest businesses.
Conventional broadband is delivered using copper wiring. Superfast Broadband uses fibre optic cables which transmit information as pulses of light. This enables a massive increase in the connection speed that can be achieved.
The impact of Superfast Broadband is a real game-changer, allowing many exciting improvements to be made. Your whole business operation can run much more efficiently. You can work smarter, not harder. You can take advantage of the very latest technologies, which can save you time and money. And you can offer an improved service to all your customers.
The brilliant benefits that you can expect with Superfast Broadband include:
A boost to productivity. It now becomes much quicker to transfer large files, allowing you to achieve more in the working day.
Increased reliability. You now have a much more stable and reliable connection, regardless of the number of people who are online at the same time.
Better customer relationships. With Superfast Broadband, you can enhance the quality of service that you give to your customers and increase their loyalty, for instance, by using a customer relationship management system (CRM).
Use of cloud computing. You can access the very latest cloud based computing services. You can use the applications you need on subscription basis, which can reduce the investment you need to make in hardware and software.
Improved communications. You can integrate all your data, voice and mobile communications so that they work more effectively. The use of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephony means that you can handle multiple phone calls on one internet connection, which can be a major cost saving.
More effective flexible working. Staff working from home or working remotely can access all the systems they need, just as if they were based in your main office.
Closer collaboration. You can use the latest software platforms for conducting online meetings and presentations. Video conferencing works seamlessly, helping you to work more closely with colleagues, suppliers and customers.
Superfast Broadband helps to level the playing field for smaller businesses, so that they can compete more effectively and reach out to a global audience. And upgrading to a Superfast Broadband connection may not be as expensive as you think. By shopping around you will find that there are some excellent deals available from suppliers in the marketplace.
Once you have Superfast Broadband, Superfast Business Cornwall can help you make the most of the digital technology it enables opening up fantastic new opportunities for your business.
