Cloud Delivers Collaboration

Collaboration with colleagues is greatly increased through the cloud, as you’re able to create groups to share more information and work more productively. Make changes to documents that can be shared with staff. Notifications are easily sent when information is updated, removing the challenges that come with duplication. Sharing information in a system dramatically reduces email traffic and creates a needed audit trail of trade data. You can also more easily collaborate with customers.
