Moving to the NBN – Opportunities for Your Business
Transitioning from copper phone lines to the NBN network doesn’t need to be just an inconvenience for your business. Transitioning to internet-based services creates many new opportunities for streamlining and maximising business efficiency and potential. Here we have listed just a few of the technologies, applications and services made available by enhanced Internet speed.
Collaboration and Storage
File storage and ‘cloud’ sharing programs such as Office 365 and Google Drive allow employees to upload, share, edit and store their documents easily and securely online, reducing pressure on hardware and internal infrastructure. Live save updates mean no more tracing through emails to find the most recent version of your documents.
Internet-based services open up significant communications opportunities for businesses with several locations, remote staff, inter-state/international clients and customers. Multi-user video conferencing and live chat applications are just two of the ways businesses can enhance the reach and efficiency of both internal and external communications.
There are now scores of highly functional, easy-to-use applications (both free and premium) to assist with project and task management. Some of the most popular applications include Freedcamp, Trello and MeisterTask, offering an array of functions such as to-do lists, scheduling, reminders and user collaboration tools.
With the undeniable movement in Australia and globally towards online sale of products and services, enhanced Internet speeds creates a critical opportunity either to improve or newly engage in e-commerce and grow your business.
