Commuting from Wexford to Dublin or traveling to sales meetings, on-line document access and sharing can be one way to maximise IT in your business. We have all done it, you go to give a Sales presentation at a clients only to find your laptop has wont start; your presentation is on it and the copy in the office is an old copy so getting somebody to e-mail you it wont do. If it was stored on-line you could use one of the clients PC’s to access your Office Live Workspace or Google Docs and give the presentation on the clients PC. A major disaster is a minor hiccup.
One other major advantage is collaboration with others, a document can be worked on by many people on-line without the need to e-mail multiple copies of the document to everyone. This avoids confusion over which document is current and changes can be approved before the final draft is drawn up. Office Live Workspace give the best intergration into your existing Office environment but you should also take a look at Google Docs.
