How many times have you been working from home and had issues with your VPN connection not working? Or unable to access the files you needed to get work done?

In today’s digital world, easy access to work files is crucial for an increasingly flexible workforce.

New employees usually expect to be able to work remotely. It’s often now a basic expectation that businesses need to meet. A recent survey revealed that 71 percent of people state being able to work flexibly (from various locations with a flexible schedule) as important for their job satisfaction. Source.

It is projected that 50 percent of the UK workforce will work remotely by 2020 according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS). With that in mind, how can businesses take advantage of the productivity benefits of increased flexible working?

Bypassing the traditional VPN makes it easier for your team to work remotely. We’ve been embracing the cloud both at work and in our personal lives for a while now, but how much do you really know about cloud-based file sync and share? This article aims to take you through the key business benefits of using a cloud-based file sync and share solution like Datto Workplace.

How Does Cloud-Based File Sync and Share Work?

Datto Workplace is an enterprise-grade File Sync & Share (FSS) solution purpose-built for business. It gives you total control across any device and allows for close team collaboration.

There are numerous benefits for businesses that choose to use it. At Netstar IT Support we use it in-house as well as offering it as service to our clients. Read on to find out some of the benefits it can have for business users.

Business Benefits

  1. Flexible Working: Creating flexibility within the workplace would not be possible without the right technology. So, before you decide to implement a flexible working policy, make sure you have a secure system in place that supports your team and your business.

    Datto Workplace allows you to access files and applications remotely, enabling you to work efficiently from home or on the go. The solution ensures your files are synced and backed up, accessible from any of your devices with your login details but most importantly, protected.
  2. Collaboration: Improving how we store, and exchange information leads to new ways of working, which allow people to collaborate more effectively and become more productive at work.

    With files kept in a central location such as Datto Workplace, employees can work on documents without having to worry about version control. Files are always available and up to date no matter where you are, and all you need to access your work is a secure WIFI connection. It’s easy to share files with people inside and outside of your organisation with a simple link. You can also lock files when you are working on them to prevent duplicate versions being created.

    Operations Manager Alex and his team at Zorin Finance have been using Datto Workplace for the last four years. They’ve found it has helped them to not only enhance their internal collaboration but also meet compliance regulations in their industry.

    “Using Datto Workplace (DWP) has helped us enhance internal collaboration and boost productivity. With increasing regulations across many industries, Financial Services, in particular, having DWP in place gives us a platform for future growth to meet compliance standards, ”Alex Moss, Operations Manager, Zorin Finance
