Google Docs is a data storage online-based service that is offered by Google for free. It allows you to collaborate with your colleagues while storing and editing data in real time. It has a word processing application that will let you share memos, articles or any documents with your team. It includes a spreadsheet application that enables you to share relevant data such as company reports, budget proposals and financial statements with your associates. Sharing files is made easier because these documents can be accessed by different people simultaneously.
Apart from that, Google Docs also allows you to store any type of files whether an audio file, a picture, or a word document.
Personally, I’ve been using Google Docs for years now and I couldn’t remember a downtime, at least not for me. It has been very helpful to me and with my business as well. Collaboration with my team with real-time updates made me manage things accordingly and smoothly.
Whenever I need to share a file to my colleagues who are from other parts of the globe, I need not tire myself of endlessly sending updating documents to them. I simply make one document and upload it in Google Docs and share it to my team. I can even limit their access to my documents. I can set the “can edit” subscription if I want them to do necessary edits in the documents I am sharing, or I can change that to “can view” if I don’t want them to do anything in my files. Here’s a video on how to maximize Google Docs for your business.
