Productivity

Bundled business productivity software effectively allows smaller organisations to become officeless. When you can keep everything you need for creating and collaborating on documents, running payroll, billing clients and conducting meetings in the cloud, there’s no need for bricks and mortar.

Doing it through a cloud provider also saves on licence fees. Such suites won’t offer the bells and whistles of proprietary software but if savings are the top priority, it can be attractive.
