Most entrepreneurs use email and an electronic calendar to stay organized. But cloud-based productivity suites like G Suite and Office 365 give SMB owners a lot more ways to map out their plans and stay in touch with customers, suppliers and partners.
Here are four ways online productivity suites can help you build out a digital strategy that will let you make better use of your time:
1. Create a central repository of all your information – Cloud-based productivity suites let you save your documents, data and presentations in one central location, accessible from any device and any place. You don’t need to worry about having a document saved on your home computer that you suddenly need for an important meeting. If you save the document to the cloud, you can get it as long as you have an Internet connection. Having a central repository also means you won’t have multiple versions of the same presentation or spreadsheet. You and your team members can work on the same file and each make your own changes, ensuring you’ll always be working on the most recent version.
