Get Your Files to the Cloud

by Jake Molko on February 13, 2015

You can now put your entire company's documents in the cloud!*

Our customers have been requesting more cloud-enabled access to their files for quite some time. Consumer-driven solutions like DropBox have made the lives of countless individuals easier.

Continued Enhancements to Office 365

by Steve Heller on February 3, 2015

One of the reasons on premise licensing is going to become less and less prominent is shown by Microsoft’s continued effort to enhance Office 365. Over 80 enhancements have already been rolled out including product accessibility on Macs, increased storage capabilities and improved security features. These are enhancements and offerings that are not available through on premise licensing. Most of these additions and enhancements are based on feedback from customers and address the business needs they face on a day-to-day basis. Microsoft’s new mantra of Cloud First, Mobile First can clearly be seen in the attention they are giving to their hosted solutions.

When it came time to assign action items, did everyone back away from the table slowly when it had anything to do with technology?

It's the 80/20 rule: 80% of computer users only use 20% of the features available to them. My hunch is that the ratio may be even more skewed than that. To this day, I'm consantly uncovering features in the software I use that help me do my job just a little more efficiently each time.
