Collaboration & File Storage

Need help deciding which platform to use?

Google Drive

Google Drive is the space where you can store all your documents, except for Highly Sensitive Information. Keep all your work in one place, view file formats even if you don’t have the software, and access your files from any device. When you change or delete a file stored in one of these locations, Drive makes the same change everywhere else so you do not have to.
