Billable hours are the most sacred things that could either make or break a company, particularly if you’re in the service industry. Apart from being key to boost revenues, billable hours are a way to keep lazy employees in check and gain credibility with the customer. The biggest issue with tracking time is getting everyone to submit their billable hours in a timely, organized manner.
Billings Pro offers several fantastic tools to track and submit time slips from multiple platforms to a centralized server. After the break, we’ll take a look at how functional their web based tool, Timecard, is.
File management is key to productivity and collaboration in an organization. Employees can always share files via email, the most common of the methods. However, the inability to send larger file sizes and handling different versions cannot be done with email. That’s when a centralized file management app comes into picture. Upload all files of importance to a server and grant role-based access to them.
Mollify, a fantastic file management tool can help solve all of your woes when it comes to hosting files and images on a remote server. Let’s look at how to install Mollify and serve out files for remote downloads.
Have you ever needed to send a file to a friend or coworker, but didn’t want to install a new program just to share a file? Email attachments often don’t cut it, and you can’t just attach a zip file to a Tweet. Sounds like you need a webapp for file sharing. The good news is, there’s tons of services that let you share files easily today, even without creating an account or paying for a new monthly subscription.
We’ve scoured the net to find the best ways to share files online today. From apps that let you share huge files for a few days to ones that let you store a ton of stuff forever, there’s something here for everyone and likely some you’ve never heard of. Here’s what you need to share files seamlessly.
Time and time again we’ve said computing is increasingly moving towards a cloud-oriented platform. Web apps continue to evolving into alternatives to their desktop counterparts, and in some cases they’re more powerful. However, the concern for the security and privacy of your data will always remain. It’s one aspect of desktop data storage that’s certainly more attractive.
With all the benefits cloud storage has to offer, it’s hard to argue that it shouldn’t be used, especially when used in combination with desktop storage. On the flip side, the web has proven to be a highly insecure space for the storage of sensitive data, even with all the security advancements that’ve been made over the years.
When you take into consideration the privacy concerns apps like Facebook has presented users with, I often wonder if I should ever trust storing any of my data anywhere in the cloud except on my own controlled server. Even knowing those issues exist, I continue to maintain full backups of all my data in the cloud, even in multiple locations. This, of course, is in an effort not to lose any of my data, under any circumstance — ever.
Though I do store my data in the cloud, I’ve never fully trusted those who maintain the storage facilities it resides in. I don’t know that I ever will; though I don’t have anything to hide so it’s not much of a concern for me either. Do you trust storing your data in the cloud? Do you trust those who manage your data?
Do you think cloud technologies will ever reach a point where we can trust our data in the hands of others?
