Today’s workforce is more mobile and distributed than ever. Here are a few of the best ways to leverage the cloud to support your off-site employees.

Collaboration – Dozens of powerful tools are available to enable your team to work together on projects despite being in separate physical locations. Cloud services’ version control ensures that everyone is working from the same information.

Communication – One-to-one conversations and team meetings can thrive in video conferencing environments like Skype and Google Hangouts, and screen-sharing services like Adobe Connect,, and GoToMeeting make life easier.

– Hardware failure and human error are common risks, but cloud services’ backup systems are robust and redundant—fail-safe backup and recovery strategies are an essential part of any responsible cloud service.

– Cloud-based services provide scalability, redundancy, and support, while freeing your team to focus on what is it they do best.
