    "When you are running a business like I do sometimes it can be very hard to communicate with all of your employees at once, especially when they are using Apple and Android OS phones alike. With iCloud I no longer have to worry about that problem because I can quickly upload and share files within the system with all employees using OS X and I can quickly make changes and re-upload them as well as acquire files from my employees in a snap. It's nice to have a place where I can quickly spread ideas without having to wait for an office meeting and I don't have to worry about certain things not working properly as iCloud gives me the tools I need to setup everything so that it works on OS X without issue."

    "Workfront has really helped my team complete our jobs faster and more efficiently. It was a little difficult to learn to use at first, but once I got the hang of it I really enjoyed everything it allowed us to do. I think a workshop or training course would help in small groups to learn how to use it. Overall it's helped our communication and collaboration immensely. "
