Business are increasingly questioning whether email is the most effective way of distributing documents, with a study from Cloud Direct finding that more than half of business leaders believe that problems related to the ageing communication channel can damage their organisations’ reputation.
The two primary issues regarding email attachments identified by the research are files being too large to send, and recipients being unable to access the information on mobile devices. Cloud Direct says both situations can be solved by uploading documents to either the cloud or local servers, and then notifying relevant parties of the secure location.
“Email attachments clearly cause businesses multiple problems, but companies are not addressing the issue. Having efficient access to files anywhere, anytime in a secure environment is now possible and can save businesses time and money,” says Cloud Direct technical engineer Will Rowley.
