Whether your staff work from the office, from home or from the park down the road, Box can help you manage your files effectively, efficiently and securely.

Documents and paperwork were once the heart and soul of business: A new contract needed filing; permits, permissions and work orders needed distributing. But after years in a business, the paperwork builds up and the documents start to overflow.

Using technology to streamline processes, going paperless and the growing impact of cloud services are all having significant benefits to Aussie businesses.

A new report from Telstra, The Rise Of The Superuser, showed that significant numbers of businesses across the world were seeing benefits of new technologies, with 58 per cent of those surveyed saying online document storage has been very or extremely helpful when working remotely.

Using technology to streamline processes, going paperless and the growing impact of cloud services are all having significant benefits to Aussie businesses, helping lead to leaner and more efficient businesses.

One such example of technology leading the way is Box™: ideal for a mobile workforce by allowing staff to work on the go while staying in contact, as well as keeping your documents backed up in case something happened to your local systems.

It also helps foster collaboration outside your immediate business, with the ability to share specific folders with anyone you need (as long as they have a compatible device), using desktop, iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows.

However, security can still be a concern for business owners – stats released by the Australian Signals Directorate show cyber attacks on Aussie businesses grew by 20 per cent last year – meaning protecting files should still be a significant focus. To help combat this, apps like Box have in-built protections to store and lock files within its ecosystem, as well as having features like device pinning, usage tracking and remote logout protecting files when devices go missing.

Box helps keep your documents safe and your staff up to date.
