Everyone seems to have been talking about “the cloud” for at least the past few years. With more and more businesses moving to the cloud and taking advantage of the huge benefits that it offers there are still others are still hesitant due to a few factors.
Most of us set goals, tasks, and challenges to tackle especially at the start of a new year. Cleaning out the house, checking for the best energy deals or promising to join a gym are some of the types of goals we set to improve our lives and build on our productivity and health in the future.
Resolutions to improve for the coming year are great things to aspire towards; whether they are organising your office, tidying your house, or taking control of your digital footprint. The problem though is motivation can quickly fall away by the end of January. If you manage to achieve only one of your goals for this year, make it to put a good data backup in place.

Being engaged in business used to mean staying wired in at the office eight to twelve hours a day. In today’s world this is completely untrue as often the most efficient workplace is one that is spread far and wide and always on the go.
With todays technology you can free yourself from your desk with just a laptop computer and 4G modem (or just tether it to your mobile phone). This freedom to work out of the office is a huge advantage to modern businesses.
The Right Tools for the Job
The most important parts of working out of the office is to ensure you don’t lose touch with your team. Maintaining total collaboration between team members can be tricky but their are tools to help you to stay on top of your team communication.
One such tool is Microsoft Office 365, this provides the traditional tools (Word, Excel, Outlook, OneNote etc) and also adds remote team collaboration and a cloud based file server. Files can be saved into the cloud, worked on and accessed anywhere. At one time, remote working meant taking a copy of a file somewhere else to work. Changes to the original weren’t reflected in the remote copy and at least one version was destined to be lost forever.
Software packages such as OneDrive and SharePoint allow the entire team to work on a single centralised file saved to the cloud. Whether you are in the office, on a beach, plane, or train; the file is the same version for everyone.
The key to remote working is the ability to collaborate in the cloud with everyone at once. Modern software such as Office 365 allows all team members to be working on a single document at the same time.
Whether the project calls for spreadsheets, documents or a presentation; everyone can work together without missing a beat.
Even when you’re not working out of the office or busy on the road, collaborative software can help to power your team working in the office too.
Admin Done Remotely
Modern software has impacted the way in which we do our finances and simplify your bookkeeping.
Today, cloud computing has opened up ways to speed up business in ways we couldn’t have imagined. Cloud-based accounting packages such as Xero, MYOB or Quickbooks allow for your accounts to be done in the cloud.
Make your Finances Work for You
Maintaining your finances is as simple as logging into a single portal. This tool allows you to take both your admin and your work out of the office and keep it on the go.
By the time your accounts are due, your accountant simply has to log in remotely and pick up where you left off. By the time taxes are due the work is done and you can get on with other important things in your business.
Getting work done out of the office and on the go is a huge boost to productivity. Modern technology and software enables you to keep up to speed, continue collaborating and even stay on top of your accounts from anywhere in the world.
