This then gives you, and everyone on your team, access to this live information anytime and anywhere.

Drive is an essential paperless solution that will not only boost productivity, but eliminate the need to shuffle printed drafts between team members. No More Searching for a Fax Machine What happens when you’re out in the field and need to send a fax? Typically you’d need to either travel all the way back to the office or seek out the nearest available fax machine.
