Cloud Integration

Transform Your Business By Moving To The Cloud

Lower costs & improve profits

by adopting cloud applications

A new way of doing business.

A revolution is underway. With the advent of the cloud and mobile computing, all businesses must move to digitise and automate their processes to stay competitive or get left behind.

Are you ready for the change?

The fastest growing small businesses make extensive use of cloud-hosted applications to reduce costs, streamline processes, boost employee mobility and improve customer service.

In fact, research by Deloitte Consulting found that SMBs using cloud technology were growing 26% faster and had 21% higher gross profits than businesses that weren't using the cloud.

Cloud applications enable businesses to perform everyday tasks – such as manage email, file storage & sharing, accounting, HR, CRM, customer service, project and job management - the list goes on.

Over the last 5 years, following literally hundreds of hours of research and testing, The LAD has adopted a range of cloud-hosted applications to run our key systems. The result has been a massive increase in productivity and a significant reduction in business expenses.

We’re convinced that any business can use the cloud to become more efficient and profitable!

Service Description


Phase 1. Cloud Assessment

Our cloud specialists can assess your current workflow processes and systems and identify a suite of cloud applications that will best suit your business.

Our Cloud Assessment service has two phases:

  • On-site review & documentation of current workflow processes: One of our cloud specialists will meet with you to analyse how your business currently operates. For example, for a plumber, we would track the workflow from the initial phone enquiry, through to job booking, assignment and completion and finally, invoicing.

  • Cloud adoption strategy & report: We will then identify a suite of cloud applications to best suit your business. Importantly, we will then plan a strategy for moving your processes and data to the cloud.

  • Our report will provide:

    • specific application recommendations & costings
    • business case justification (i.e. identifying cost savings)
    • detailed step-by-step migration plan (which could be used to implement the system in-house, if desired)

Phase 2. Cloud Application Set-up & Integration

As a Google Cloud Partner, we are experienced in the planning and implementation of cloud migrations.

Our team will:

  • set-up your chosen cloud apps and configure them to meet your business needs
  • use best practice tools to migrate your data and minimise business risk
  • integrate the applications to streamline processes and avoid 'double-entry' of data
  • we will then provide on-site user training and configure devices (e.g. smartphones and tablets)


Phase 3. Cloud System Management

Like most small businesses, you may not have the time (or expertise) to support and maintain your cloud systems. Maximise your investment in the cloud by leveraging our expertise.

We offer a range of plans to support your cloud systems including:

  • on-going application support, user-training & device management
  • we'll keep you and your team up-to-date about relevant updates to your cloud apps - including providing a newsletter with tips and tricks to help you become as productive as possible
  • importantly, we will undertake periodic reviews of your cloud systems to ensure your business continues to use best-of-breed applications and reaps the maximum benefit from your cloud adoption.
