Reason Number Six: Elasticity

Over the past several months we've given you five reasons to choose Wdesk and the cloud. The sixth reason on the list is elasticity. A benefit of the cloud is how readily it can be adapted in any situation. Systems outside the cloud require constant updating or migration. These software changes put strain on IT and cost your company time and money.

The cloud infrastructure of Wdesk can easily grow or shrink to meet our customers' needs. One top-10 bank needed to complete its RRP, and Wdesk facilitated with thousands of pages of document setup and data collection. Even after adding and training hundreds of new users, the company was ready to file in less than two weeks.

Easy to implement
Implementing other systems may require a long consultation process, hardware installation, and software configuration. The cloud, on the other hand, provides instant, secure access wherever there is an internet connection, saving time and cost.

Cloud collaboration
Does your organization struggle to manage data collection in a process involving a several- or even hundred-member team? The cloud streamlines collaboration, even among individuals from different departments. As employees change roles and responsibilities, it's easy to transfer editing and viewing rights by adjusting a few settings on the admin panel.

Adaptable to your needs
Wdesk is as flexible as your business needs require. Billing options are easy—subscription-based payment allows you to only pay for what you use. Don't burden yourself with clunky, expensive hardware that only a handful of people use regularly.

The elasticity of the cloud makes Wdesk a cost-efficient, low-maintenance option for organizations both small and large.
