Did you know that 49% of employees in 100-999 person companies are using consumer cloud services to store and synchronize their business data?

It’s because the consumer cloud is easy and fast. But it’s not always secure enough for your business’ intellectual property. It certainly doesn’t meet Corporate’s policies for auditing and data retention. It’s simply *not the cloud you’re looking for*.

Igloo is built in the enterprise cloud. We’re made for business, but still fast and easy to use. In fact, we have a full suite of social tools, like blogs, built around secure document management, collaboration and version control. (We have all the security acronyms you need. Really.)

It’s time you try Igloo (and check out our fancy new form, too.)

Sponsor: QuoteRobot

QuoteRobot makes it easy to write winning proposals.

Let’s face it, proposal writing generally sucks. It’s unpaid time spent in the hopes of winning a new project. If you’re pitching against other companies, the chances of winning are further diluted. But, it’s a necessary evil.

Here are three tips from QuoteRobot to help you win more:

  • Focus on benefits, not features. For example, instead of saying you’ll build a WordPress website with a blog (feature), say you’ll attract new customers (benefit) by making a website that’s easier to update.
  • Provide a timeline. A detailed timeline with deliverables at key milestones will show that you have a process and have thought about the project from start to finish.
  • Look fantastic. A well designed proposal will convert much better than one authored in Word. If you’re a designer, you gotta represent.

Sponsor: Igloo Software, wishing you a happy work from home

Let’s face it, we’re heading into the worst time of year for getting work done. Everyone is getting ready for Festivus.

It seems like Janice is always out of the office. Bob’s coming in late every day. And if Kelly sings Cartman’s version of “Oh Holy Night” one more time, you’re going to go insane. But you can’t work from home – your shared drive is locked down and your VPN is just. so. slow.

This holiday season, ask your boss for a cloud-based collaboration platform. You’ll be able to securely work from home and your coworkers will love the built-in social tools. They can share updates about what they’re working on, and you can ignore the cat videos. Your boss will love your increased productivity.

‘Tis the season for an intranet you’ll actually like.

Try Igloo.
