Drive your business to success with the Cloud
So, you have taken the leap and made the transition to Cloud computing, but now comes the hard work – getting the best possible results you can from it. Whether it’s the quest for modernization or forced change due to servers becoming old – it is essential to utilized the Cloud to its fullest capabilities.
Microsoft 365 has excellent tools in its 365 ecosystem to help you increase productivity and propel your business along the road to a modern prosperous future.
There are two challenges that every business must face – the ability to manage documents safely and efficiently, and to communicate with its team seamlessly. Both challenges have increased for businesses that transitioned to remote working during the pandemic.
The majority of businesses have only discovered a small percentage of what is possible within Cloud services. Let’s now explore some parts of the Cloud that you may not know so much about. We will share our opinion on two key features we believe to be a must, the advantages of those features in 365, and what they have to offer within the Cloud to assist you in providing an effective, efficient, and productive working platform for your team.
OneDrive is at the very core of the Cloud’s capabilities. It is the space in the Cloud where you can organize files and folders and it is typically personal to you. It allows you to store and access files from anywhere on the planet with an Internet connection. OneDrive’s best feature is that it can all be done through the browser and instead of having to use a VPN (Virtual Private Network), so you have full access to files through a shared folder based in the SharePoint library.
SharePoint is designed for businesses of all sizes. Anyone can get a 365 plan for a monthly subscription – it doesn’t need to be installed on-premise. It makes it possible for your team to share documents and information with colleagues, partners, and customers alike from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. So, what makes it so good?
- Improved data management
Data is intertwined into every step of workflow from inception to the finished service or product. Most of this data comes in the form of email, or customer support requests, marketing reports, and other documents. Organizing everything can become overwhelming. Yes, you can create a file system on your desktop to keep track of your documents and that’ll work, but this is completely inadequate if one of your remote workers needs access to a file.
The data in your organization varies and comes in different formats, from different sources, about different subjects, and belongs to different teams, so is there any wonder it can be impossible to organize and keep track of when you are trying to do this manually? SharePoint allows you to take control of the exact data you need – meaning you no longer need to sift through everything else to find what that crucial document.
Regardless of your team’s size, it is essential that everyone know how to communicate and collaborate as effectively as possible. It can be difficult, for example, when one member of your team sends a document over to another member for review and then remembers that something needs to be added to the document – now no one knows which is the latest version of the document. There are version controls in SharePoint as standard – it tracks every edit that is made to a document, the time it occurred, and the person responsible.
