Google Drive: Small Business Collaboration Tools
Google Drive, a central online file storage tool, integrates with Google applications such as Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides. Within the Drive interface you can share documents with other people, create and edit new documents, spreadsheets, forms, drawings, and slide presentations. You can also message other people who are working on the same file.
You access all the Drive applications via a browser when you're online. What you're able to do offline varies depending on the file format you're working on, what device and which browser you use. Google Drive offers apps for most mobile devices including iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. Drive is a great tool for sharing and working collaboratively on office documents.
An alternative to Google Drive: Zoho.
