Cloud-based tools have undoubtedly changed the way we do business. That’s especially true for enterprise-level companies, many of which have adopted cloud-based tools to improve and enable productivity of all employees, remote or on-site.
Evernote and SharePoint have become necessary tools in a large enterprise workflow, thanks in large part to the convenience of mobile devices, and easily accessible data.
Yet that accessibility becomes much less convenient if not everyone at the company is using the same services, which is why cloudHQ is a critical addition to any collaborative environment. We’ll show you how cloudHQ can make your existing cloud tools exponentially more powerful. But first, we’ll take a quick look at why Evernote and SharePoint have become two of the top cloud computing choices for the enterprise.
Evernote Business: A Content Marketing Necessity
Content marketing isn’t simply an industry buzzword—it’s an increasingly important way for businesses to not only tell their stories, but also to create a content-based strategy that helps achieve key business goals.
And when it comes to organizing content resources, ideas and blog posts, Evernote Business is an increasingly popular cloud solution. Because you can access it from any device, it’s easy to not only save tips and ideas when you’re on the go, you can also retrieve your information any time you need it.
Here are just a few ways you can use Evernote Business to better organize and streamline your content marketing workflow:
Research: Clip helpful articles and store it in an Evernote notebook so that you can refer to the information at a later time. You can also email posts or other resources to Evernote, depending on which method of accessibility you prefer.
Track ideas: Those of you who regularly blog know that writing isn’t usually the hardest part of the equation—it’s coming up with ideas! Create a blog post idea notebook in Evernote so that you can log ideas whenever (and wherever) inspiration strikes. Not only that, but you can also save ideas regardless of the format—blog posts, articles, social media updates, email, images, etc.—and create an all-in-one resource that you can reference at anytime.
Blog drafts: Because you can compose blog posts directly in Evernote, you can work on them whenever the mood strikes—plus, you can access your drafts from all of your devices, too, so you’re not tied to one specific computer or workstation when it’s time to finish and publish a blog. And if you prefer to collaboratively blog, your Evernote-using colleagues can also access the content in their cloud.
SharePoint: Creating A Centralized Data Library
Part of the Microsoft family of products, SharePoint, gives enterprise companies “a secure place to store, organize, share and access information from almost any device,” according to Microsoft. It includes a number of different products including: SharePoint Online, SharePoint Designer and SharePoint Workspace.
SharePoint has been widely adopted by enterprise companies for a variety of applications, but most often as a central document library in which key company information is stored in a place that’s accessible to all employees. Another benefit of SharePoint? Because enterprise companies are more likely to work with outsourced vendors and agencies, companies can create a SharePoint site that allows for external access. Not only can they quickly and efficiently access the information they need—they can also upload documents and projects to the site, which means that productivity doesn’t suffer simply because companies aren’t under the same roof.
Of course, having access to information doesn’t mean much unless you’re going to use it. With that sort of practical application in mind, SharePoint makes it easy to search through the information included in the centralized library. Not only that, but you can discover larger patterns, trends and relationships that can help drive business decisions and strategies, giving you the data you need to help make your company more successful.
A Combined Cloud Is More Powerful
There’s no denying that Evernote Business and SharePoint are ideal enterprise cloud solutions, yet there’s one glaring problem: if people in your organization don’t use Evernote, and only use Sharepoint, it’s going to create a lack of communication for your organization.
And that’s where cloudHQ comes in. Because cloudHQ continuously synchronizes and replicates data between multiple cloud services and accounts in real time, your enterprise organization can use a variety of cloud tools and know that all of the information and resources will be accessible and protected in a secure, centralized location.
A large part of the cloud’s appeal is accessibility: you no longer have to be tied to your office computer to get the documents and projects you need to stay on task. Yet with increased accessibility, comes growing security concerns; especially for enterprises. By incorporating cloudHQ into your workflow, you’ll create a secure, constantly updated information portal that doubles as backup protection as well as a solid communication solution.
Most enterprise organizations already rely on cloud-based tools as part of the company’s workflow. Try cloudHQ’s free trial so that you can integrate your cloud apps into your workflow today, and reap the benefits of what each of them have to offer you.
