Solutions we love to use ourselves

The highest compliment we can give a product is to use it and love it ourselves. Because we only recommend products that we know inside out, you can be sure we know what will work best for you and your business.

Above all else, we believe in good design. So what is "good design?" Software that is well designed doesn’t seem to be designed at all. Instead it is intuitive and natural. This can't be achieved just by adding stylish buttons. It is about using a combination of design principles to ensure the software achieves its purpose as elegantly and easily as possible.

Less is more

We focus on essential functionality, making our products easier to use, faster and more elegant. Don’t pay for bells and whistles that create more noise in your life.

Steve Jobs

"That's been one of my mantras - focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end, because once you get there, you can move mountains."

"[Design is] not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works."

Trust your intuition

Cloud Inc creates and chooses software that is intuitive and easy to use. It makes your life simpler, not more complex. We achieve this by focusing on the user interface and the user experience.

A well designed user interfaces will emphasise your key tasks. It should help you get your job done more effectively and efficiently, rather than distracting you from it.

Likewise, a well designed user experience should create a seamless, simple and useful interaction between a user and the product. This means when you use our software you’ll be thinking about your work, not the software. (Every now and then you might think about how great our software is, but this doesn’t count.)

It’s all ‘app-ening

Office 2013 is just around the corner. With it comes the new "Cloud App Model" for Office and SharePoint Online.

"Apps for SharePoint are self-contained pieces of functionality that extend the capabilities of a SharePoint website. Apps integrate the best of the web and SharePoint; they are targeted, lightweight, and easy-to-use, and do a great job at solving a user need."

We are very excited about the new "Cloud App Model". Alongside it, Microsoft will also offer an App Store, where independent developers can offer users apps with additional functionality.

Cloud Inc is busy developing apps for the new market place. Look out for us in the new App Store.
