Benefits of Remote File Access for Your Small Business

Remote file access is so much more than a simple backup copy of all the important documents and files your business possesses. It’s easy access to this information no matter where you or your employees may be at the time. Here are five of the benefits your small business can enjoy with remote file access.

1) Access Files while at Client’s Site
Employees no longer need to bring large, heavy briefcases full of information with them to client’s sites. Whether you’re in the construction business, provide insurance estimates, or provide home health services; you can now access important construction plans and other information, insurance files, and medical records on-the-go. All you need is the right mobile app, such as Tappin, on your mobile device or laptop to securely access the information wherever your business takes you.

2) Better Time Management
It can take a great deal of time to drive back and forth gathering the correct documentation between clients. Searching through files and folders is another time consuming process. Even worse is going back and forth between offices or cubicles in search of one elusive document that got away. Having all the information stored in one convenient location for fast access by whomever needs it is the simplest solution for everyone.

3) Automatic Backups
Wouldn’t it be nice if you never needed to worry about losing important documents again? That day is here. Most businesses, sadly, just haven’t caught on quite yet. Remote file access means there’s already a secured backup of the information your small business requires.

4) Collaboration
No matter how many employees you have working on a given project at a time, or how limited or involved their roles may be, you can now allow as many employees as you need to have shared access to the same documents and information without printing out dozens (or even hundreds) of copies. This makes it easier than ever before to get the right information to the right people without any paperwork becoming lost in the transition.

5) Increased Productivity and Profitability
At the end of the day, this allows your employees to invest their talents where they are most needed, rather than on shuffling papers and packing them up for the day. You’ll get more productivity from them and that will lead to greater profits for your business.

Remote file access has a lot to offer small and large businesses alike. Perhaps the best benefit, for small business owners, is that you get the benefit of an IT department without the high costs.
