Imagine you’re a kid again and building a Lego set. You open up all the bags of small, intricate pieces and lay them all out on the table. You look at the instructions and search for the first pieces to start building. Then you go to the next step, and the next, and the next, searching for each individual piece at each step. You spend hours searching in an endless pile.
Now imagine that instead of searching for each piece, it would instead magically appear in your hands. The process of building your Lego would be much more efficient and you would finish your masterpiece much sooner. Sounds pretty great, right?
That’s essentially what cloud storage and file sharing software does (not quite as magical, but just as efficient). Cloud storage allows those within your organization to access the files they need without dealing with red tape, forgotten passwords, and colleagues who are not in the office that day. Everything is organized logically and accessible for all who have the proper passwords. Overall, it can be a real game-changer in how your business operates.
