Effective filing boils down to this... Store the photos and documents in an online space – cloud storage.
It does all the hard work for you. Keeping files safe, organized and right at your finger tips anytime you need them!
Relax and Archive Photos in the “Cloud”
To simplify life, every business should at least consider cloud storage options to solve document and photo archives challenges. Cloud solutions (Egnyte, ShareFile, Box) are more scalable and efficient for storing photo documentation. Rather than guess-timating and committing to a large up-front investment, you only pay for the space you need and use, and get a bunch of extra functionality that your existing storage system does not provide. Cloud provides convenience of use as well as data security, saves money by reducing costs and allows easy access to all files, at all times, from anywhere.
Cloud Storage Providers Take Care of Everything
Cloud syncing and mobile capabilities are elementary for businesses that have different locations with many mobile workers (think construction sites, property managers, claims adjusters, real estate agents who travel from site to site) who use smart devices to capture and share information and photos directly from the field. Studies show that the flexibility of cloud services makes it possible to achieve brand new levels of efficiency by allowing team members to collaborate more easily, resulting in increased ROI and productivity. Cloud computing is an essential component for today’s businesses and despite skeptics, Forbes predicts that this year, U.S. businesses will spend more than $13 billion on cloud computing and managed hosting services.
Cloud Enables Smarter Photo Documentation and Archiving
Photo archiving in the cloud gives you a storage partner who cares about the security of your data and photos and allows you 24/7 access to your files from any computer or smart device with an internet connection. You can also:
Share folders or individual photo files using only a link or by sharing access to the folder
Sync field photo documentation across multiple devices
Retrieve older versions of files and leverage other apps to work with your files
Collaborate and improve productivity and manage all your work more efficiently
Upload all the photos and comments and share the link to the folder to allow your client to see the whole folder. It will make your life simpler, and work more effective and less risky. You’ll save time, complete more inspections and make more money! It doesn’t cost you anything to try, as all major Cloud storage providers (ShareFile, Egnyte, Box) offer a free trial.
Take this approach a step further and explore all that cloud storage service can do to meet your photo documentation and archival needs.
