Apple and Android phones come loaded with individual cloud services. You get a small amount of storage for free, and you can upgrade to more storage for phone backups and file saving. But when you need to use the cloud for work, you can’t rely on the storage that’s meant only for you as an individual. Use a separate work cloud service to get tons of extra benefits.
Connect With Work

When you’re traveling, telecommuting, or meeting with clients across town, a secure cloud service keeps you connected to your workplace and relevant work files. Say your business uses Google Drive, for example. You just need to sign in to your Google account to access the work files that are shared with you. You can even edit them from your phone, making it that much easier to participate in work meetings when you’re connecting via video or phone.
Save Files Easily
Gone are the days when we worked on documents only from our computers. Now, your Android or Apple tablet or phone has the capability to be a work screen, which is great for you and your team. If everyone is on the same cloud service, saving and sharing documents is a lot easier. So is collaborating; you may do some work on a document and save it, then let another colleague open it up and save more changes. If you are using different storage platforms, sending documents back and forth gets old fast.
