As a business owner you almost definitely need an online colaboration system. Why I hear you ask? here are a few examples that I have needed and used them for in the past.
Managing shared calendars
Let say you manage a small team of people. Having their calendars online and shared will make it easy to see who is on holiday and who isn’t. Booking work for them will be a breeze too.
Private discussion groups
You can talk with your team on private discussion about the next deal or an ongoing project in the prvacy of your own discussion board / forum. No waiting for group emails to be recieved as the responses posted will be instant.
Keeping shared documents updated
Online collaboration really comes into its element here. For example if you have a conference planning spreadsheet which two or more people need to see and you are emailing it backwards and forwards it can usually be a real pain to keep it updated or to make sure everyone gets the latest updated version.
If more than one person updates the spreadsheet and emails it out that will have created at different versions. It will then be hard to get back to one version without some major headache!
With online colaboration, this spreadsheet would be stored online and users would always edit and view the latest version.
Access from anywhere
You can forget bringing the laptop out all the time. All you need is a webbrowser and you can then access your documents online anywhere. You don’t even need to have spreadsheet or word processing software installed.
There are many benefits of online collaboration and Central Desktop allow you to try it for free.
