Covid-19 has shattered the normality we are all used to. Governments and health organisations are scrambling to try and control the virus at present. To prevent the spread of infection, different countries have been restricting movement to cope with the pandemic. The main rule, work from home where you can. Only travel if absolutely necessary. Now more than ever, the importance of remote working is crucial, not only to keep your business from staying afloat, but also to protect your staff, as well as others.
One difficult challenge for companies is enabling employees to have the same experience no matter where they are, whether they are working from home, in the office, or working whilst on-the-go, and irrespective of the operating system they are using, be this Windows or Mac OSX. CloudEdit is one feature of the File Fabric than can enable employees to achieve just this.
CloudEdit allows a seamless transition from different working environments to allow users too easily from home using the same Apps and tools that they use in the office. This feature enables users to select any type of documents from the File Fabric web interface and seamlessly edit them on a Mac or Windows Desktop with the Apps that they have installed on their desktop.
Users can edit the document in the Apps they are used too, such as Microsoft Office Suite or any local application that is associated with the file extension that is opened. Once complete CloudEdit will automatically save back to the cloud any changes made.
As the File Fabric unifies all data into a single interface, it means that this editing functionality is completely seamless and it will work regardless of the storage endpoint, be that Amazon S3, Azure, or internal Microsoft DFS shares.
Remote working using the File Fabric not only keeps your staff safe, by enabling them to work from home, but also that staff can be more productive, by cutting down the time it takes to do simple tasks. CloudEdit is just one feature that enables this but there are many others. Why not take a trial and discover more ?
