What if you could improve profitability, increase efficiency and manage risk more effectively with a single solution? You may want to consider, working in the cloud or cloud computering.
What is Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, whereby all your resources - files, software and information – are provided to computers and other devices on demand, from servers on the Internet.
What are the benefits:
- All files can be stored and accessed online anywhere, anytime. If you have a internet access, you have all of your files immediately at your fingertips. No more problems, with it being on your laptop hardrive, or you forgot your flash drive at home.
- Works cross platform (mac, pc, smartphone, iPad);
- All updates are done through a browser, no more waiting for software updates. If you access your files from your smartphone, or another computer, they are instantly updated and accessible from somewhere else; and
- All your scanned and electronic files can easily be viewed, accessed and arranged online. You can even share all of your files, or a specific folder with team members, family or clients by giving them access rights to specific folders.
We have been playing with lots of products to guage ease of use, accessibility and efficiency. Dropbox has won my heart. Oops, I skipped a beat!
Dropbox is a great way to experience a virtual office or “Cloud Computing.” Visit www.dropbox.com and download the software onto your computer. They give you a free, 2 GB account to play with. Once the software is installed an icon appears on your task bar. You can drag files onto the icon and upload them automatically to your online Dropbox account.
