This initiative focuses on growing small businesses – with home-based roots – which employed innovative ways of making their setup work for them. From turning homes into welcoming, functional client-facing spaces to businesses that make use of cloud-based connectivity and clever online tools to work remotely with clients, there’s lots to learn from these showcase entries.
Read Your Allies’s entry and see how we’ve used tools for video conferencing, messaging, cloud storage and project collaboration to make it easy to work with clients and suppliers remotely. You’ll also see how we established the right balance between cloud collaboration and face-to-face meetings – something we hope will help other small businesses starting out.
Working in the flexible way that we do – between being home-based and working on-site with clients – adds to our enjoyment of working at Your Allies. If you’re looking to set your own small business up in a similar way and would like to find out more about the tools we employed, feel free to drop us a line at hi@YourAllies.co.uk.
