Professionalizing the way you work

Simpler processes, faster operations. In this day and age of mobility, technologies such as the
latest gadgets, cloud computing and the countless applications are available at the disposal of
business owners as well as entrepreneurs to accomplish work efficiently at the speed of “now.”
Wish there was a start-up kit for your business to go digital? Here’s a checklist of three of the
most important things you need to do to get started with digital for your business:

1. Switch to professional email

Nothing says official like your own domain for your business’ website. Further establish
credibility with your consumers by switching to your own business email! Goodbye
“” or “”. According to a recent survey
of “Young Businesses”, owners saw a whopping 60% increased customer engagement, 59%
improved customer trust, and 42% increased sales when they switched to professional email.

2. Switch to file sharing

In the same study, business owners agree that online file sharing enhances team efficiency.

What is “file sharing,” anyway?

With file sharing, documents are stored on a cloud and are accessible to those with whom the
link is shared to. Team members can collaborate, edit, comment and more on the go and all at
once. This saves a lot more time and effort (not to mention – trees!).

3. Switch to video meetings

Sure, physical meetings will always be better but at the age where video conferences are
readily available, you can be half way across the globe and STILL be able to attend the monthly
town hall. Thanks to technology, location, traffic, and cost of travel and time are now
inexcusable. This isn’t your old-school voice con call. You can share presentations through
screen-sharing, meet with 14 different people from different locations at the same time (and
actually see their faces!) with the advanced capabilities of apps like Google Hangouts.

Get things done with Google Apps via Globe myBusiness

I mentioned a “start-up kit.” Google Apps does all of the above and more to give your business
that much needed digital upgrade. Business owners like you can now conduct their operations
with professional e-mail through customized Gmail, online storage and shared calendars via
Google Drive, video conferencing with Google Hangouts and other work efficiency tools. The
complete range of applications runs through the cloud, allowing you to tighten collaborations
and perform work virtually anywhere using the latest devices.

Here in the Philippines, I recommend getting Google Apps with the help of Globe myBusiness.

existing Globe mobile postpaid and internet plans. Not only do they have 24/7 tech support
