With recent advancements and innovations in technology, businesses and their employees are becoming more mobile and efficient. Rather than spending their entire day in the office, many employees now enjoy the freedom of working on-the-go. With the right combination of mobile devices and services, businesses can make the simple transition to mobile business operations.
Arguably the most important service for businesses with mobile employees is cloud backup. While primarily used to back up data as a precaution, cloud backup is also a useful tool for sales representatives and other traveling employees.
The reason why cloud backup is so important is because it’s the link to mobile business that makes sure that efficiency and performance are not compromised. With cloud backup, employees have access to their work documents and data on their mobile devices. So if an employee is waiting for 3 hours at an airport, he can still work on a project or talk with clients on his tablet or phone.
A recent Cloud Tweaks article discusses cloud backup and explains how employees can use the service on-the-go. According to the article, mobile businesses operations can be so effective that employees can even collaborate efficiently while in different states:
"Companies also reap significant functionality from cloud services. The cloud allows designated employees to access data from anywhere. That means that an employee on vacation or in an airplane can examine information and work on projects using a laptop, tablet, or smart phone. It also increases an organization’s ability to outsource many functions without sacrificing collaboration."
Of course, there are traveling employees that don’t have access to cloud backup. While it’s true that someone could manage by emailing attachments to themselves and saving information on their devices, they wouldn’t be able to work as efficiently.
The main idea behind cloud backup is that it provides all the resources that employees have in the office. As long as they have a mobile device and Internet connection, employees will be more efficient and more flexible.
