									How to Save Time and Money as a Freelancer
I am a professional blogger and I blog for a couple of clients. There were times when the clients
sent their requirements and journals to my official email address. I downloaded the files and later
made printouts to file them into a box. I had to take a number of printouts and find a physical
storage place for my files. Whenever I was on the move, I had to carry either the files or some of
the papers with me. This meant keeping an eye on the files so I do not miss place them or lose

However, things have changed now. Thanks to online document sharing technology, my clients
have switched to online document repository. This has made things easier for the both of us
because I now have access to the documents from anywhere. A part from that, I need not waste
my precious paper and printer ink, therefore, saving me a lot of physical storage space.

Why Online Private Document Sharing is Suitable for Small/Medium Businesses

       Centralized Document repository – The documents can be accessed at anytime, anywhere, by
       those who are given access privileges. The files are uploaded onto the servers, therefore saving
       the physical desk space.

       Organization – In private document sharing, you can password protect select files for select
       people to see. A good document management system would have libraries where the files can
       be arranged in folders and subfolders.

       Hassle Free – When a firm implements a document management tool, need not bother about
       the backend hassles of configuration, security, updates and maintenance.

       Cost Effective – Some services charge a reasonable monthly fee for the document sharing
       service, depending on the monthly usage; similar to a utility bill. Apptivo offers up to 3GB free.

       Flexibility and Mobility – Online document sharing and management ensures that files can be
       viewed using any web browser. This saves the users from downloading the files onto their
       workstations/laptops. Most of the document management software allows access through
       mobile devices.

Apptivo is one such SaaS vendor which provides document sharing. They take care of the messy
backend and thus making it user-friendly for the Small and Medium Business owners who are
not tech savvy. Are you using a document sharing provider?
