We love Office 365 (that’s why we built a whole bunch of apps to sit on top of it) and Office 365 is awesome at all things Office...Want to view a Word document in the cloud? Office 365 has you covered. Want to analyse a scatter chart in the Excel web app? Office 365 handles that. Want to flick through a full fidelity PowerPoint while connected to WIFI? Not a problem for Office 365. But where SuiteFiles comes in, is its love for other file types. Most businesses have a whole range of file types running their business, and many of these sit outside the Office suite.
So, you’ve been selling on-premises for years, you’ve noticed the market has taken a cloudy turn, and now you’re ready to move to Office 365. Only problem is, your customers aren’t. For many small businesses, the cloud is new territory and confusion around exactly what the cloud is and its likely business impact might need to be addressed in your sales pitch.

I read an article on Inc today. It was the story of Aaron Levie, the young founder of Box. He's been named entrepreneur of the year in the US. And rightly so. He's built a massive business in a very short time with his cloud storage and collaboration software. Box employs 900 staff and is valued around the $1.2 billion mark!
Microsoft is heavily promoting the OneDrive for Business sync tool for connecting to SharePoint Online. This tool has it's place but it also has limitations like:
I often get asked what the difference is between SharePoint and SuiteFiles? And why, if I'm buying Office 365 where I can use SharePoint as my file management system would I also want to buy SuiteFiles?
Recently a number of people have asked me how to map a network drive to SharePoint.

Using web-based versions of Word, PowerPoint, Excel and OneNote you can view, edit, and work together on Office documents from nearly anywhere. And with the latest update that Microsoft is delivering, you’ll get more editing and formatting controls, co-authoring support across the web apps and expanded device support, including editing from tablets.
