What is the Cloud?

The Cloud refers to Computing Services delivered from a server (large computer) over the internet.

Key benefits of using Cloud based services:

Anywhere, Anytime

Multiple Users can access the service from anywhere and at anytime on any device resulting in ease of use, ease of access, increased sharing all resulting in increased productivity.

Reduced Cost

You do not buy and install software on your computer. You pay a rental fee to use the software which includes maintenance, enhancements.


The host provides security and backups of your data so you don’t have to.

The most important take away is that now everything is accessible to all your executives and members – with appropriate restrictions, of course.

Key data that you need to get the job done is no longer sitting on one of your executive’s home computer in an Excel spreadsheet with complex formulas that only they understand.
