A work/life balance was a state that most were striving for before the Covid-19 pandemic but within a matter of weeks, the way we work and do routines has changed. The transition to working from home may have hindered the progress of achieving this balance. Working from early until late is easier without facing the forced breaks of the bus or train to and from the office each day. We want to share some tips and tricks we’ve been working on to keep up this important balance:
At this time, as well as staying afloat ourselves, it's important to be doing what we can to help our community of small businesses. Internally, we've been thinking of ways to provide tools and advice to those surviving through.
SuiteFiles has put out a Working Remotely guide, a working from home Facebook Story tip series, and two blogs to offer advice for remote working with team and clients.
We asked a few small business customers for their #1 piece of advice to those struggling through the Covid-19 pandemic. We received some great pieces of advice from JTW Accountants, Withers Tsang, Hopscotch Accounting and Trinity Accountants.
Collaboration through online sharing of files and folders has become the norm for almost every business, this has created a need for successful filing. We have all been in a situation where we are trying to find documents in amongst an unordered mess of files that we *think* we may need again (Side tip: ARCHIVE!).
Collaboration through sharing files, having them digitally signed and working together on documents are all now a part of everyday working life. Connect allows you to utilise all of the above current SuiteFiles features, but with the ability to share these with non-SuiteFiles users.
SuiteFiles can help you maximise your productivity on a daily basis, we have compiled a list of our favourite Connect features to help you do just that!
Working remotely is something many businesses are facing amongst the Covid-19 pandemic. A large number of businesses are closing their doors and allowing employees to work from home to lessen the spread and take care of their more vulnerable staff.
As COVID-19 brings unprecedented change across the globe, we're fortunate as an office to have the technology that allows us to continue working remotely in a (semi-normal environment). If you're rapidly making the change to support remote work, we've put together some tips in this blog for processes and technology to hopefully make it a little easier.
Microsoft Office has been a big player in desktop apps for as long as most of us remember. Office365 reinvented the wheel and brought in a number of new features that are powered by it’s cloud-based focus. We’ve taken a look and compiled 5 features you can use with SuiteFiles and Office365 to make your document and email management more productive.
SuiteFiles Outlook integration is one of our most popular features as it removes so many manual processes.

This list serves as a reminder for many offices out there who have simply forgotten their impact! Being cooped up in an office leaves you with little time to think about the environment. All that energy being used to send that one email does have an affect. The average spam email has a footprint equivalent to 0.3 g of carbon dioxide emissions (CO2e), according to carbon footprint expert Mike Berners-Lee's 2010 book "How Bad are Bananas: The Carbon Footprint of Everything."
Increasing rates is a reality that all businesses face, and all customers go through at some point in their lifetime. As a business upgrades or upskills, the product is slowly increasing in quality. The issue is, you can’t be doing more for less and customers will understand that if explained correctly.
