If you’re used to working in a collaborative style, then working from home might pose a tricky task. Although sending a document back and forth will allow you to collaborate with co-workers, Google Drive offers you a simpler service. Rather than saving countless versions of the same document, Google Drive houses a live document which you, or any invited parties, can edit simultaneously. This ensures that everyone is on the same page and reduces the risk of any confusion.
What’s more, having your documents stored on Google Drive may give you the added assurance that if something were to happen to your device, your documents would not be lost. Instead, you could simply use an alternative device to access them.
With the majority of the UK population having to work from home for the foreseeable future, we are more reliant than ever on our household gadgets – be that our laptops, internet and smartphones. Therefore, it’s only appropriate that we ensure these things are protected, whether that’s under your current home insurance policy or with specialist insurance.
