Cloud computing & security

Business Case 3

As the benefits of storing information in the cloud increase in popularity, it’s encouraging to see more and more SMEs adopting this model.

When we launched Breathe, we chose to offer it as a cloud-based product so customers didn't need to invest in new software servers or pay to increase the capacity of existing systems.

Many businesses benefit from the fact that subscribing to Breathe is treated as operational as opposed to a capital expense. This provides major accountancy advantages.

Simply consult your financial expert to see if this model will benefit your business. In most cases we’ve found that it does. The safety and security of your employee data is our highest priority.

Breathe is hosted by Amazon Web Services in their state-of-the-art datacentres which are ISO 27001 certified. As an added precaution, we ourselves are ISO 27001 accredited, reflecting the commitment to security demonstrated by our working practices and data-handling expertise.


Your office - anywhere

Because Breathe is hosted in the cloud, it’s accessible anywhere with an internet connection. In a time when remote and home working are increasingly the norm, and where field-based employees need access to the same applications used by their office-based colleagues, this has never been so important.

All users can access Breathe via smartphones, tablets, laptops and PCs.


GDPR and Subject Access Request compliance

Business Case 4Employee data is subject to the same rules as the management of prospect and customer information. Since the 2018 introduction of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is already fining small businesses and charities for data infringements.

In May 2019, GDPR regulations were extended to cover Subject Access Requests (SARs), whereby an employee can request all information held by them by an employer.


Changes & your new responsibilities

  • Business Case 5-min (1)No fee unless the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive.
  • 30 days (not 40) to respond, with an option to extend by up to 60 days in limited circumstances.
  • A greater level of information to be supplied.
  • SARs no longer have to be made in writing.

Business recovery and growth

SMEs are making plans to come back stronger after the COVID-19 crisis, and effective people-management is absolutely key to recovery.

Luckily, with Breathe's easy-to-use software, you can:
