Having the right data at the right time can make a huge difference and deliver significant impact to the bottom line. Accessing that data can be a challenge when information is scattered and connectivity is an issue. Off shore oil rigs, mining operations and satellite offices isolated by natural disasters can suffer intermittent service if not outright disconnection making information retrieval near impossible.

In the case of outages and working in low bandwidth, high latency environments, business continuity is essential. Work in progress can’t stop just because the networks are down. Traditionally workers have resorted to storing information locally which has led to the duplication of data, multiple versions, a lack of collaboration and the siloing of information from the enterprise.

With Shinydrive’s file cache and optional offline index, searching and browsing the ECM becomes possible regardless of connectivity. Even completely disconnected from the main branch, local storage of active documents ensures work in progress can proceed uninterrupted. Meanwhile all your active documents remain in compliance, secure and accessible to all your collaborative stakeholders. Information. Local caching has the added benefit of providing a lightning fast user experience regardless of whether the centralized server is located next door or on the other side of the world.

In the case of disaster recovery, documentation of actions that are to be adopted before, during, and after a catastrophic event to ensure business continuity and availability of critical resources needs to be available regardless of connectivity. Shinydrive ensures the information you need to move forward is available to you whether you’re online or off.
