Cloud storage and Office 365 provide all devices with up-to-date files. This means that as soon as someone from the team edits the information, it is in real time available on all connected devices.

What about a smartphone? With Microsoft OneNote you will remember all your brilliant ideas and start to implement them. Just take your mobile device and start creating notes and clips, add to reading list required web pages, save photos, or video. In short, save everything that inspires you. All material is now in the cloud, and it can be easily shared with partners, staff or friends.
