In the past, you needed to download software to your own computer—software that was compatible with your computer. You needed to update, upgrade, and back up. But with the cloud, there is no need for any of that anymore. Nearly every rental business now works at least partially within the cloud. Why are all those rental companies moving to the cloud? And why should you?
The cloud lives in data centers, which are very efficient. This means you can process much more than any single computer, without worrying about storage and power.

It is ideal for rental companies with growing demands. You can scale up or scale down your cloud capacity. You can receive updates immediately. With the cloud’s scalability, you can add and remove features whenever needed. You can adapt them instantly during a reorganization. Plus, you never have to pay for more than you need. There is no need for huge infrastructure investments that may be risky. The cloud offers all the flexibility you need.
Rental Business continuity
It can be very costly and harmful for a rental company when systems go down. However, if you move everything to the cloud, the supplier guarantees that they will maintain everything for you. As long as your employees back up on a regular basis, you can rest assured that the system will be available when you need it.

The cloud provides your employees the possibility to work from home. This greatly improves work-life balance, which is becoming more and more important for employees. Working in the cloud is ideal for employees who need to be on the road. With just a computer and an internet connection, they can access everything they need.
Smooth out workflow
When your team can access, edit, and share information anywhere and anytime, it smooths out the workflow. It makes working together easier and faster. More and more functions are becoming automated, removing the burden of manual work. This helps your employees to work more efficiently. The transition for new employees becomes easier and smoother because everything is bundled in the cloud. There is no need to search for the necessary documents.
