We recommend Microsoft’s SharePoint Online for cloud storage. It gives a secure file store which enables you to access your files from computers, mobile devices, tablets and even other people’s devices. Its secure web interface lets you edit and share files from anywhere, and it even allows multiple users to work on the same document at once – perfect for collaboration and sharing. You’re given plenty of storage with your Microsoft 365 subscription and if your business needs even more then it can be expanded for a few pence per GB.
SharePoint also allows audit logging, granular file access permissions, sharing both inside your organisation and with external users, and automatic file version control. When used in conjunction with OneDrive, files can be synchronised to your computer for use offline if an internet connection isn’t available.
We’ve successfully migrated countless businesses from other file storage solutions over to SharePoint Online, and if you already have a Microsoft 365 subscription then the best news is that SharePoint Online is included in your subscription. Book in your FREE demo today.
Some of our favourite business benefits of using SharePoint Online are:
The web-based platform is placed entirely on the Cloud allowing businesses who operate remotely or at multiple locations the benefit of accessing their files anywhere, at any time. For those who need to be able to work offline we can also use OneDrive to synchronise files to your device in the same way that Dropbox would, but with better control, security and configurability.
By allowing many businesses to move away from having a physical server, especially when combined with Microsoft 365 Business Premium and Azure Active Directory, SharePoint reduces cost, saves on electricity and makes systems more secure, more flexible and more reliable!
