Share The Words

“The power of Google Docs has, at best, been only partially understood so far. This is a paradigm shift that putting Word online will not come close to. Sure, Google Docs can work as a traditional word processor, and I use it that way sometimes, but the true power is in connectivity. That’s why it is better than Buzzword or other online processors. They understand the idea of word processors, but Google has gone beyond that with Google Docs and changed the ways in which we can work.”

So many of our business documents are snippets and phrases of other business documents. How much time do you or your staff spend reinventing the wheel when putting together a contract or a report? Imagine how much time could be saved with plug-in paragraphs, or easily editable templates?

But, what? You’re not a networking guru, and your office machines can’t talk to each other? No problem. Google Docs and Zoho are two online office sites where you can share your work – and still keep a measure of privacy.

They way we work is changing fast. We need to change with it. Pony Express was created less than 150 years ago, and who uses that anymore?
