"As a charity you need to be everywhere all the time - flexible I.T. is essential"
Brain Tumor Trust Yorkshire - www.btrs.org.uk/
BTRS is a micro charity offering support to brain tumour patients, their families and carers across the Yorkshire and Humber region. It co-funds Yorkshire’s only brain tumour research lab, one of only a handful across the UK.
Despite only employing a few members of staff, we work to support over 500 people annually who rely on us to provide information, advice and guidance to face this terrible disease.
As a charity you need to be everywhere all the time - flexible I.T. is essential - and the cloud means no expensive systems or additional technology is required, which is perfect for us.
Because of the vital nature of our work we need to ensure that nothing interrupts our business continuity and WinWeb has provided us with this security. When our office was burgled a few years ago and computer equipment stolen, we were able to ensure everything carried on as usual because of our WinWeb cloud system.

Small Business Apps
Choosing the right applications will revolutionise the way you do business; small business apps free your time, allowing you to run a business and not an office. Having small business apps at your disposal will enhance both your, and your customers, experience of your business. WinWeb offers a wide variety of applications to enable your business to move forward - taking more customers with you.
Business Apps 'In The Cloud':
WinWeb are an advocate of cloud computing, meaning that all your important data from your apps is stored 'in the cloud', or, in other words, no time consuming downloads, software updates or frustrating software crashes for your business! With web browser based applications your business can work from any computer (PC or Mac), at any time, anywhere in the world; offering security and flexibility for your business.
The reality of Business Apps:
Business Software is a term that covers many aspects of a small business' computing needs; ranging from accounting software to software that allows email campaigns to be sent to clients, business applications help the day to day running of a business, allowing you to focus on your customers.
Integrated Business Apps:
Many small businesses are aware of their need for business apps, and it is possible to purchase applications from many different suppliers; but what can really revolutionise the life of a small business owner is having apps that are fully integrated. Imagine if yourinvoicing software updated your accounting software, or invoices were logged against customers in your address book? If all your business applications integrate and talk to each other, your workload is reduced and fewer mistakes are made by details being overlooked.
Business Apps for Business Success
In the increasingly online-focussed world of business, the importance of good quality business applications is becoming apparent. Without the right software solution to assist businesses when they make important decisions, they will often not have enough information available to make the right choices.
WinWeb provide a wide range of apps that cater to all manner of business needs. From the very beginning of the development process, our software has been designed with small business infrastructure in mind.
We understand that the small business marketplace has changed a lot over the last fifteen years since the Internet exploded in popularity - and business applications are opening a whole new world of opportunity for would-be business owners. It is now often not feasible for a small business to have a physical store because the costs are so prohibitive. Operating a business from home allows an entrepreneur to remain competitive by significantly reducing their running costs.
Homeworking is now a reality for small businesses, largely due to advancements in technology. WinWeb were one of the first business app providers to understand the potential benefits of cloud computing for small business and we have continued to build on this principle to help them achieve success the Internet Age.
What is Cloud Computing and What Has It Got To Do With Business Apps?
Cloud Computing (also often referred to as Software-as-a-Service or SaaS) is a very useful tool that is beneficial to any business infrastructure. Business applications that use cloud computing technology is often offered on a subscription basis rather than an outright purchase.
The reason that the subscription model is common in the cloud computing industry is that there is no physical product on offer. You are instead paying a fee to access the software on the servers of the provider. Nothing needs to be download or installed as the software will run entirely from within your web browser.
The benefit about this system is that you will always have access to the latest version of the software without the need to download updates or patches. It also makes sure that no-one is locked-out of using the software because of their choice of operating system. Whether you favour Linux, Leopard or Windows, as long as you are able to run the main web browsers you will be able to use the software.
What Businesses Can Benefit From Business Applications?
Any business that wishes to improve its business infrastructure will find great benefits from using small business software, particularly if it is a cloud computing application.
Small businesses that operate from home or have employees that homework will see the greatest benefits from a cloud computing solution. This will allow the whole company to work together collaboratively on projects or when providing customer service. It can also make it far easier to carry out administrative tasks.
There is not need to be concerned about security either. All of the data you enter into a cloud computing application is stored on the highly secure servers of the provider rather than on your desktop. This is highly advantageous to users, because it provides greater security and also allows them to access it regardless of their current location in the world. It also avoids the nightmare scenario of having a computer crash and losing all of your data.
Every small business should start thinking about business apps and the positive benefits that cloud computing can bring.
