COLLABORATION IN THE CLOUD

We are proud of the way we work here at Big Blue Digital.

We strive to deliver the best and most practical results to our clients by working together as a team but we couldn’t achieve what we do without the two magic words:

Cloud Collaboration.

Those wonderful words have allowed us to work together on documents and other data types. Our Marketing Team, Client Relationship Managers and Development Team are able to share documents at the drop of a hat.

I’m going to share with you one of our sneaky tricks of the trade which helps us get the ball rolling with our everyday office functions.

GOOGLE APPS.

While Cloud computing isn’t exactly a new concept, Google Apps has refined the technology so much so that businesses everywhere can take advantage of its speed, accessibility and storage.

We here at Big Blue Digital are avid fans of Google Apps for Work – it’s our system of choice for so many reasons, all based around efficiency and simplicity.

The Google Apps suite includes popular trademarks such as:

  • Gmail
  • Google Calendar
  • Google Docs
  • Google Analytics

I’m choosing to focus on the function I turn to every day at my computer (infact, I’m using it RIGHT NOW)

GOOGLE DOCS

I’m going to tell it to you straight – I would be lost without my Google Docs. This application is one of the most efficient ways to have multiple people collaborate on information!

It allows multiple users to create and edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations  – all on the Internet.

Usually, the sharing of documents is done via email or on hard copy, which can often result in incorrect file versions. With Google Docs, the file is edited in the cloud, where revisions are saved and recovered automatically.

Like other Google Apps, administrators can set permissions to share the document with certain people. So after I finish typing this award winning blog, I will then be sharing it with our Marketing Strategist for feedback and approval. No emailing and sending attachments – I will actually be able see her changes and comments added to the doc. SIMPLE!

At Big Blue Digital, our Client Relationship Managers assist our clients in setting up their Google Apps accounts and assist them familiarising themselves with the relevant features.
