Cloud Office suites let you stay productive when you’ve got time to kill

Whether you’re sitting at the bus stop or waiting for a flight, a cloud Office suite ensures that you can always get things done.

Getting stuck waiting for something isn’t always a bad thing, sometimes it offers you some much-needed downtime for luxuries like reading the newspaper over coffee. Of course at other times you can’t afford to sit around getting nothing done, especially if you’re your own boss and time is money.

That’s where a cloud-based Office suite can come to your rescue, ensuring that everything you need to get things done is at your fingertips – regardless of where you are and which gadgets you have at hand. Keeping your calendar and to-do list in the cloud makes it easy to quickly find a task which you can knock over in the time available.

With your files stored in the cloud it’s easy to dip in and resume work on a document in process. You don’t have the hassles of emailing copies of files to yourself and keeping track of the changes, as you know everything will be in order when you get back to your desk so you can pick up where you left off.

Even if you’re working offline, for instance on a flight, you know that all your work will be synced to the cloud next time you reconnect to the internet. If you’re flying economy and discover you don’t have the elbow room to pull your notebook out of your bag, you can get just as much done using the smartphone in your pocket.

Working in the cloud also means you have the benefit of knowing that your files are safely stored online rather than just on your specific devices, keeping your data safe should one of your gadgets come to grief due to fire, theft, hardware failure or simple clumsiness.

If your cloud storage service keeps an archive of previous versions of your documents then you can always roll back time if disaster strikes, such as ransomware encrypting all your precious files and demanding money for their release.

Working in the cloud can also save the day if disaster means that your office is temporarily out of bounds. You might not be able to reach your desk, but if you can still reach your important files then you can take care of business while you put your disaster recovery plan into action.

Meanwhile the collaboration tools built into cloud services make it easier to work with colleagues whether they’re on the other side of the office or the other side of the world. Throw online communication tools into the mix and you might find that you’re no longer tied to your desk or even the traditional concept of an office.

Freeing your documents from the restraints of your desktop PC doesn’t just break the shackles which tie you to your desk, it also allows you to completely rethink your approach to work to ensure that you’re always getting the most from your day.
