Cloud Storage on Google Drive
Drive is the core of Google G Suite’s file sharing and collaboration engine. Drive lets users store and share files in many formats, including Google apps (such as Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms), Microsoft Office (such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint), multimedia files, or just about any other format you can imagine. Connectech, a Google Cloud Partner serving the Sacramento area and beyond, can help you implement and maintain this powerful cloud-based storage system.
Google’s web-based technology allows many common file types stored in Drive to be viewed and edited directly from a web browser, tablet, or smartphone. A Drive desktop application is also available for Windows and MacOS, enabling synchronization of files between Google servers and a user’s computer.
Easy-to-manage sharing controls let you keep files stored in Drive private until you decide to share them. You can assign other users permission to download, edit, comment, or view files, avoiding multiple versions and the necessity to merge comments from several documents. Third-party apps are also available to extend the power of Drive, including DocuSign (e-signatures), LucidCharts (mockups), AODocs (robust document management), and Smartsheets (project management).
After Drive setup, our experienced Google team can provide onsite one-on-one and group training services, as well as individual configuration assistance, to help users get the most out of Drive’s powerful features.
