As a ModernBiz business you will be able to take full advantage of the IT Technology and support that previously only large Corporates could afford and support. This makes Small and Medium Businesses (SMB) able to complete on an equal technology footing as large corporations. In fact in many instances it will enable SMB to be more agile and hence more competitive in the market than slow moving large businesses. With CYLON’s Outsourced IT Services we provide businesses with a “VIRTUAL CIO (chief information officer)” and “VIRTUAL CMO (contract management office)”. This means that SMB can have access to the same skills that large corporates have and can afford on a Pay-as-you-go basis. This is achieved via economies of scale.

So What is ModernBiz?

First and foremost it is a means for businesses to reduce IT costs and secondly, make businesses more agile.


COSTS. By moving to the cloud there is no need for costly Server hardware and associated operating system and other software related costs. This is usually a capital cost (funded from cash flow) and can only be written off over 3 to 5 years. Whereas moving to the cloud you can write off the monthly expense every month (no huge outlay upfront).

The same applies to your desktop application software and best of all you always have the latest versions (as opposed to having to buy the new version every 3 to 4 years).


AGILITY. By having your application available from anywhere you have internet connection you and your mobile staff can get your work done. Whether you using your smart phone, tablet, laptop or PC you can work from anywhere (office, on-site, home, beach, etc).


Office 365 gives you the latest version of the Microsoft Office applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, One note) that you likely already use each day. These applications work seamlessly with cloud-based productivity services including business-class email, file sharing, and online meetings.
