8 Reasons you need Cloud Solutions in your business

The Cloud offers business technology that uses a network of remote servers and platforms to store, manage, and process data, rather than the traditional on-site servers you might be managing today. With the Cloud your critical data and computing resources are stored securely and delivered to authorized users over the Internet. 

Why are Cloud arrangements so popular?

They provide businesses with growth opportunities, high performance, quality, affordable prices, easy collaboration, and simplified access to tools and information.

Cloud Adoption is rising fast...

  • Planning Next Steps – We map out the specific steps that need to be followed for your transition. This includes determining the actual apps, workloads and environments you'll be moving, as well as any training requirements.

  • Migrating Your Environment – We make sure everything is addressed ahead of time. The success of any technology migration completely depends on a well thought out plan, and our experts focus on the details to ensure an easy, seamless transition.

Leverage this Federal Tax Break to add New Technology Now

Time is running out to take advantage of the Federal government’s Section 179 deduction for 2017. Instead of deducting expenses for equipment or software according to a set depreciation schedule, Section 179 of the tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price the first tax year – up to $500,000. 

The deduction applies to both leased and purchased equipment. When you buy, you can deduct the full amount on your taxes. When you lease, you pay the monthly lease payments but you still get to deduct the full purchase price on your taxes. 

Whether you choose to purchase or lease, you'll need to put the equipment/software into service by the end of the day December 31, 2017.  

Follow this link for more information about Section 179, which includes a savings calculator:
