Office Live Workspace Add-In

clip_image002A while back I wrote a piece about Office Live Workspace that explained that any MS Office user had access to online file storage and sharing capabilities. Office Live Workspace gives each MS Office user 500 MB of storage (about 1000 average sized documents) free. It sweetens the pot by allowing files to be shared with up-to 100 different people. Unlike most of the MS products we’re accustomed to, Office Live workspace is cross browser and OS compatible.

If 500 MB of free storage isn’t enough, and collaboration with clients and co-workers doesn’t impress you, Microsoft also offers the Office Live Add-In. This add-in toolbar enables MS Office products to seamlessly save and retrieve documents from Office Live Workspaces.

The Office Live Workspace is a great solution if you’ve already invested in MS Office products. Utilizing the solution requires no additional effort on users or staff and extends the value of your software by enabling new storage and collaboration options.
