Think about all the ways you work with your coworkers. You stop by their desks, have meetings, conference calls, maybe even chat over instant messaging. But did you know the cloud might be another tool to help you work smarter?
In one study, 68 percent of businesses say employees’ requests for cloud services have increased. But why? Applications on the cloud allows groups to work faster and collaborate from anywhere in the world. Fortunately there are multiple cloud computing options, many of them free: Think Dropbox for large file transfers; Google Drive to share and revise documents; Campfire to have large team chats; or Trello to track projects. Though each serves different project management and development objectives, they all utilize cloud technology for fast, collaborative workflow management.
Try using cloud-based services with your co-workers and you might find that you can increase collaboration and efficiency and, best of all, reduce the amount of emails in your inbox.
