Imagine you are in an important meeting with a very important client talking about an extremely important business proposal. You have spent weeks putting together a masterpiece of a document on how your company can benefit theirs and what amazing opportunities lie in the future. You open your laptop to pull up the document but…it never saved?! No problem, you’ll just reach for your flashdrive … oh great, you left it at home.

Is this presentation doomed for? Is the client looking ready to pack up and leave? Is this really the end of your job?

If only you had utilized the benefits that Google Docs has to offer. It is nearly impossible to find a company that doesn’t use this app to conduct business, keep track of data and reports, instantly share with other team members, and most importantly, can be accessed through any devices.

Pen and paper may be great for jotting down small notes or a to-do list, but with Google Docs, you don’t ever have to worry about losing your notes. All you need is internet connection!

With Google Docs, it is made available to access at anytime. For those working in an office together, the app allows several members to work on a single document as well!
