Cloud Collaboration

At the same time as mobile and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) allow your people to work remotely, cloud computing makes it easier for them to work together, whether they are across the hall or across the country. Does your organization have the tools they need to work in a cloud computing environment and collaborate online effectively?

We partner with Google Apps to give you the tools you need.

Google Drive is a full-service cloud-based application that lets teams collaborate easily on documents, spreadsheets and presentations. Files are stored on the cloud and are accessible anywhere and from any device, including laptop computers, iPads and iPhones, Android tablets and smartphones, and Blackberry devices. And: they are accessible to anyone who has the right permissions, so multiple people can work on the same document at the same time, wherever they are, allowing a team to work together on a document, and see each others’ changes as they are made.

Google Drive is a secure way to work together. Although it is a cloud solution and files are stored on the cloud, document owners control access levels, deciding who can view, who can comment and who can edit files, both at the folder and at the file level. And Google Drive takes care of version control for you: every change to every file is stored, and old versions can be revisited at any time. So not only is everyone working on the most recent version of every document (no more worries about multiple versions!), but you also don’t have to worry about version control.

And with integrated instant message and VOIP, you and your team can discuss the document you are working on, can make changes, and can approve them, all in real time, without a long email trail to sort throughand without multiple file versions to keep straight.

We can get you up and running on Google Apps, quickly and seamlessly. From  determining which services you need – and which services you don’t – through migrating your data quickly and safely so that you don’t lose any productive “downtime”, to training and supporting your users, our Google Apps experts have you covered.
