OUR MISSION

Our mission is to change the landscape of services delivery. We aim to empower businesses with the tools they need to become more efficient. And to provide high-quality customer service.

Digital technologies are evolving faster than ever before. They are changing the face of business. Companies need to evolve or they’ll perish. And they need to evolve quickly.

Businesses know that too. According to a recent study, 89% of organizations consider adopting a digital strategy. However, only 44% have actually done it.

Throughout our time in the industry, we’ve noticed that many products claim a lot of value. Sadly though, more often than not their implementation falls short. Digital solutions companies do more technical worh than consulting. They implement technologies at a tactical level. Yet, don’t align them with their clients’ business vision. They focus on day-to-day operational needs, but not enough on strategy or future vision.

As a result, company culture and processes lack functional changes. Customers aren’t able to fully realize the benefits of modern technology. And they fail to see its value.

We want to change that.

Instead of plain technical work we also provide consulting. To help customers address both tactical issues and long term growth using technology. Specifically, by migrating customers to automation and cloud technologies.

Our goal is to align our clients’ digital strategy with their business vision and needs. This improves adoption and reduces waste and expenses in delivery. It also shows customers the immediate value of their investment.

Are you ready to transform your organization to its core? Then let’s do it together!

OUR VALUES

Be Innovative
Anybody can follow directions and procedures. But it takes a creative mind to come up with something new and valuable. Use the tools available, as well as your experience, to innovate.

 

Be Agile
Big bang approaches do not work. It’s all about the journey. Start simple, start small, and build gradually. There are valuable lessons throughout the process. Learn from each of them and adjust along the way.

 

Be Empathetic
Don’t just take orders. Be a partner. Take your time to understand the business and the customers’ challenges. Help the customer define the solution utilizing best practices and experience.

 

Be Humble
We are all experts in our field. But don’t assume you know the answer. Truly appreciate the situation from the customers’ point of view.

 

Have Fun
Technology is a serious business. The impacts of your work can be grave or great. Our work improves lives. But you will not be great until you enjoy what you do.

OUR STORY

Founded in 2014 by Paul Cannon, Cloudland Technologies originated after years of big business consulting. Paul had noticed much inefficiency in the common practices of digital transformation. He believed that there could be a better way to deliver value.

However, things didn’t always run smoothly. Coming from high-end consulting, Paul had a different vision for Cloudland. It offered more generic services and quick implementation. For a much lower price.

But it didn’t bring the desired results. And it wasn’t sustainable.

Paul was struggling to deliver his vision, and the company was falling short of obtaining true value.

To stay afloat, Cloudland needed to change. Though consistent work and attending numerous workshops,
we learned the following:

  • clients need to focus on tactical issues first
  • clients need to see the value quickly
  • clients need to see their growth

Taking these into consideration turned Cloudland into what it is today.

Instead of quick implementation, we started spending more time defining customers’ vision. We now take our time to map the technology implementation with the goals of the company. We empathize more with the company. We even work with the end users to understand their needs. It helps us to address the pain points and better align with our clients’ unique needs. We apply structural changes not only to company processes, but also to its culture.

Instead of quick-time gains, we started building plans for steady and gradual progress. Now, we don’t try to do everything at once. We focus on issues that need immediate attention first. Then, we develop a roadmap with long-term goals to ensure that there is a continuous value path.
Instead of general services, Cloudland now focuses on specific products and areas. It allows us to provide more targeted information and closely work with each client.

Over the years, Cloudland has helped clients in a variety of industries. From finance and pharmaceuticals to e-commerce and non-profit. We also care about our community, and commit 1% of our revenue to it.
